Sahara jade IS...

an accomplished singer, songwriter, DJ, actress. Born and raised in the heart of the music and entertainment industry, Los Angeles, Sahara has been working professionally since she was a child- from session work, to live background vocals for numerous artists.

Daughter of LA-based A-list studio guitarist Michael Thompson, she started out by doing sessions in their home studio at age six. Through that work she has been able to make long-lasting connections that have allowed her to work nationally and internationally for the past 10 years. 

Sahara has done both live background vocals as well as studio work in major locations including Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Mexico and Canada; with artists such as Paul Anka, Rebecca Black, Chaka Khan, Michael Bublé, Brian McKnight, Gavin DeGraw, Kelly Rowland, David Foster, BeBe Winans, Estelle, Teresa Carpio, Renee Olstead and Katharine McPhee.

Having grown up in the studio world, whether it was observing or participating, her musicality and ear for detail is well-developed and keeps her work habits efficient. Teaching herself to read music at a young age, as well as honing her skills on guitar and piano, has also helped in sharpening her ear and keeping her musical capabilities diverse and flexible.

Sahara is currently gigging around LA and recording, doing live theatre as well as teaching private voice lessons for all levels.
