Sara Kae of Lake Helen First Nation is a young Ojibwe/Cree artist born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Her music is best described as singer/songwriter, adult contemporary, pop with an infusion of authentic Indigenous sounds. Sara has shared her amazing talent as a singer/songwriter with her community for many years. Starting at the young age of 12, she was visiting communities and schools to help encourage healthy lifestyles, and to follow their dreams. Her parents were her role models. They took in youth who struggled with substance abuse, poverty, and inadequate living situations. This shaped Sara, and her goals to be a major role model in her own community and beyond.
In 2019, she graduated from Metalworks Institute as a vocal major in the Music Performance and Technology program. She was awarded the “Outstanding Graduate of The Year Award” from Career Colleges of Ontario. Soon after graduating, Sara began working at 106.5 ELMNT FM, a Toronto based radio station owned by APTN. She quickly became an on-air personality during their Maximum Music Weekends. During that time, she also completed a diploma for Music Business. She decided to pivot paths and began working with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra and CBC Thunder Bay.
Saras’ passion for her music and roots has led her to compose an amazing new song,“Rise”. A powerful melody and message that truly compliments her talent as a singer / songwriter. Together with Rocket Fuel Records, the single was released on June 17th, 2022. Sara Kae is a genuine leader and proven role model.
