Stories. Songs. Songtellers.
Sadie Bass

Country music singer/songwriter Sadie Bass grew up in smalltown Bath, Michigan. Often thought of as the son her dad never had, she spent much of her childhood hunting and fishing in the outdoors. Living a simple, active lifestyle is at the core of who she is. And yes, Sadie Bass is her given name. Currently living in Nasvhille, TN, Sadie has now opened for dozens of national acts, released four studio singles, and was a contestant this season on 'The Voice'. She aspires to pave the way for other bad-ass female artists in country music, and hopes this is only the beginning for her successful career.


As a joy filled powerhouse, Kanin’s undeniable gifts as a singer, songwriter, musician and performer demand the listener’s attention. Her voice captures open hearts with both a fierce intensity and a tender touch of warmth. With a heart of gold and a voice like sunshine, Kanin is taking over one fan at a time. Nashville Songwriter International Association claims her first co-write is “one to watch”. Local Spins also named her an Artist to Watch for 2022. Even Pure Michigan has embraced the native songbird, featuring her track “Torch Lake Breeze” on their Summer playlist. Her voice captures open hearts with both a fierce intensity and a tender touch of warmth.

“Kanin has natural talent and the mental fortitude to survive in this nutty business called music.” - Matt Bissonette (Elton John, Rick Springfield, Ringo Starr)
