AND Sasha Hurtado: Sasha Hurtado is a 16 year-old emerging Indie/Soul/Pop singer/songwriter from Dallas, GA. She began singing at a very early age and started taking vocal lessons at the age of 9.

Sasha learned how to play guitar when she was 12 and played her first paid gig at 14 years old. Sasha recently had the pleasure of opening up for her extremely talented best friend, Callista Clark, who is an upcoming and signed Big Machine artist, here at Pure Life Studios.
