On this FUV Live session, Bronxville-born, Los Angeles-based Sasami Ashworth, who records as SASAMI, opens up about the path that led to her 2019 self-titled debut. She went from studying music to teaching it, and from playing in bands to finally going solo.  She describes her lyric-writing prowess as akin to drafting a long, angry text message that she never ends up sending.

SASAMI's Studio A performance starts with the song “Not The Time” and ends with the one-two punch of "Jealousy" into "Free."
