Sayed Sabrina – ‘Goodie Two Shoes’

Sayed Sabrina describes her music as “Real living breathing music” – and she knows what she’s talking about. ‘Goodie Two Shoes’ is the first single from her new album, ‘Thou Art That’.



Sayed was a part of the LA punk rock scene of the 1980s, and even lived on the streets of Hollywood for a while, as well as spending time in group homes and Juvie – eventually becoming a teen mom. Along the way she learned how the music industry, and the world, worked, and put this experience into making a name for herself in the blues community, with ‘Big Boy Blues’, an international smash now in its third pressing. Sharing the stage with the likes of BB King, Los Lobos, Jimmy Cliff, Dr John, Leon Russell, The Temptations, and The Motels, she’s a force to be reckoned with.

Sayed Sabrina doesn’t call herself a blues singer –

“More like a singer that knows what it’s like to have the blues. I like emotionally driven music.”

Nonetheless her new album, ‘Thou Art That’, mixes blues, rock, jazz, funk, and soul, and features the talents of Bobby Watson, Sarah Morrow, Gary Herbig, Carlos De La Paz, and Bryan Head. Speaking of the new album, she says,

“I’ve incorporated the styles that have become a part of me and am blessed and extremely grateful for the brilliantly talented people on this latest project. Together we created something very special.”

Sayed Sabrina composed and wrote the lyrics for every song on ‘Thou Art That’, and also played piano on all tracks, as well as producing the entire record. ‘Goodie Two Shoes’ combines gritty bass with a heartfelt message, where we’re treated to Sayed Sabrina’s incredible vocals, and treated to her sheer dedication to the craft. She works hard and can play just as hard, with the video showing candid clips of her working in the studio, having fun, and even running into the ocean.
