The cellist's third album "Holy" will serve as the inaugural release.
Sasha Siem is launching a new record label called Sound Sanctum Records, the singer, songwriter and cellist announced Friday (April 12). Sound Sanctum will kick off with the release of Siem’s third album, Holy, in June.
“Sound Sanctum Records is an ‘artist for artists’ record label founded by women,” said Siem in a statement. “The company is dedicated to the empowerment (spiritual and material) of its artists -- each of whom owns a share of the company and contributes to a global community of artists dedicated to social change and applying their music to build a ‘harmonious world.’ The Label has its own foundation -- which uses sound and music for healing -- and all the artists contribute their time and 10% of their income to a charitable project they are passionate about and personally select.”
Sound Sanctum’s yet-to-be-announced roster will feature artists from a “variety of musical genres,” according to Siem.
