POESY is the solo project of Toronto-based singer/songwriter/pianist Sarah Botelho. Centered on a deep and powerful signature vocal she has garnered the attention of tastemakers like Nylon, Billboard, Ones to Watch, Spotify (New Music Friday, Fierce Femmes, Rock Favourites, Rock Your Block, Ready to Rock), Amazon Music (Fresh Alternative, Brand New Music, Fresh Pop, Your Fresh Alternative), Apple Music (Breaking Rock). She has also toured with The Beaches, Born Ruffians, Matthew Good, Tyler Shaw, Scott Helman and Bad Child. 

POESY was initially discovered after she appeared on the first season of hit Canadian music show, THE LAUNCH. Her essence captivated the judges and the hearts of millions across the country and her incredible breakout performance landed POESY a major label deal with Big Machine Records. Met with an incredible reception, her debut single "Soldier Of Love" rapidly climbed the ranks of Canada’s music charts - debuting at #1 on the iTunes All Genres chart and landing in the Billboard Top 40.

Ready for her next musical statement, POESY enlisted the help of UK producer Stephen Lipson (Billie Eilish, Annie Lennox, Hans Zimmer) to compile the next batch of songs that effortlessly set her apart from the pack. Along with a commission to write the theme song for the 2022 Canada Games and a nod from Canada with full FACTOR grant funding POESY is poised to take on the nation and the rest of the world!
