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 indie with hints of pop complimented by lyricism influenced by her life experiences and Indigeneity. 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 positive mental health and encourage youth to follow their dreams. Her parents were her role models. They took in youth who struggled with substance abuse 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 a Toronto-based radio station owned by APTN. She quickly became an on-air personality during their Maximum Music Weekends. Later, she also completed a diploma in music business. She decided to pivot paths and began working with CBC Thunder Bay as a journalist, all while pursuing her love of music.
Saras’ passion for her music and roots has led her to compose “Rise” and "Constellations". The two singles truly compliment her talent as an artist. She is working on new music to release in the near future.
