Sara Henya is a singer-songwriter and harpist based in Philadelphia, PA. Her music can best be described as Fantasy-Pop, combining the fun of pop music and the ethereal sound of the harp. Sara incorporates imaginative, fairy-like visuals that allow her audience to interact with her otherworldly character. Her melodic and complex artistry echoes the complex nature of her lived experiences with Tourette Syndrome, using music to transport into the enchanted sceneries detailed in her many tattoos.
Sara Henya released her debut EP, Small World Alchemy, on May 20th, 2018. Her EP has received widespread radio play on Folk and Alternative programs such as Out of the Woods, Power Folk, Womenspace, and Radio 104.5’s Live at 5. As well as touring music venues around the East Coast, she has created a large and dedicated following, which is especially seen at science-fiction conventions like Balticon, Arisia, and PhilCon. Recently, fans have enjoyed her livestream shows, with each stream being viewed by more than 400 people.
In the summer of 2020, Sara released her first single of the year, Circle. On November 20th, 2020, Sara released her highly anticipated follow-up single, Pancakes. On January 8th, 2021, the official music video for Pancakes was released to very positive reviews. Nick from Tealcheese.com said, "My interest soon became deeper when I realized how well done this music video is. I would never have guessed that this is a relatively new artist."
