Sadie Roach is a 21 year old student in her 3rd year studying Jazz Piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. 'Hooked on Love' is an EP that features Sadie singing and playing piano on 3 original songs. The tracks were co-written by Hammond B3 organist and pianist, Sedatrius Brown (living in Atlanta, Georgia). The EP was produced by Michael Roach (Sadie's father) who knew Sedatrius as a star from the 1960's RnB scene in Washington DC and asked her to mentor Sadie when she was 14 years old. After 4 years of collaborations and flying from London to Atlanta for lessons, it was decided that Sadie was ready for this production. Her sound is modern but steeped in the tradition of 'old school' soul, jazz, rhythm and blues.
