SASAMI collaborates with non-profit OMG Everywhere to create video for "I Was A Window"

In March, Los Angeles songwriter and multi-instrumentalist SASAMI released her brilliant self-titled debut album; ten tautly melodic rock tracks, it marked her out as a striking new talent.

Alongside the LP, SASAMI (aka Sasami Ashworth) shared a slew of music videos (many of which she co-directed) that showcased her irreverent and playful humour, Sasami is now pleased to share a special video for the album’s opening track “I Was A Window”. Building on her time as an elementary school music teacher, Sasami teamed up with the non-profit organisation OMG Everywhere to participate in the 2019 iteration of their free, week-long film workshop for kids in Los Angeles.

For someone who has spent a good chunk of their adulthood running around a classroom, making up songs and dances, and directing rag-tag orchestras full of glockenspiels and bongos, the collaboration yielded a lively result including a reference to Sasami’s beloved French horn.


SASAMI also recently shared an arresting cover of Big Star’s “I’m in Love with a Girl” for Amazon Originals, which is also available to stream and purchase exclusively on Amazon Music now.

Sasami said on the song: “I love the whole Radio City album, and there is something to be said about the magic of an album’s ender — especially a brief and unfeigned acoustic number that’s over before it hardly began, [Big Star frontman, Alex] Chilton’s writing is admirable because the songs are loaded but not whiny — a delicate and beautiful place to be.”
