Maenads is a triumphant return for Sarah P, where the artist explores the theme of female power – its magic, strength, and imperfect perfection.
With her debut album Who Am I (2017) praised amongst music lovers and tastemakers alike, Sarah P. returns to celebrate feminine power and her Greek heritage with a transcendent collection of songs known as Maenads. The former frontwoman of Keep Shelly in Athens does not shy away from revisiting the past as she uses music, aided by magnificent, self-directed visuals, to divulge her endless accomplishments: be it her openness about mental health and the creation of her monthly zine EraseRestart aimed to wipe out the stigma that surrounds it, to the lobbying for the protection of artists’ rights as an active member of IAO (International Artist Organisation).
WHO AM I
Release: May 12, 2017
“During our particularly troubled times, some introspection is more than needed.”
Who Am I is Sarah P.’s solo debut full-length album. A pop record that is different, an ode to the humanly deep need of security and love and a piece of art that reads pages from Sarah P.’s diaries. It’s an album about fears, hopes, memories, dreams – and love. Inspired by Berlin, her Greek roots & personal struggles, Sarah asks “Who Am I? Who are we?”
“Our ethics, our cultures are shaping us, but what we become is completely our choice. I’ve been constantly asking myself ‘who am I’. Have you?”, asks Sarah. Although the album is inspired by her struggles and personal fights, the humor and positivity are not missing – Sarah’s sarcasm is omnipresent, so is her passion for a change that we all can bring once we decide to do so. It’s the realization that we have to start by asking ourselves who we are, who we want to be, and what we stand for.
On Who Am I, Sarah P. gets political, comments on our societies, serenades about true love, criticizes herself and shares her fears and dreams. “There’s no right and there’s no wrong, but there’s hope,” says Sarah. “And while we’re feeling defeated, even during those dark hours, there’s hope we can do better. And we will.”
Following up her solo debut EP Free (2015), the full-length album Who Am I was released on May 12, 2017, via EraseRestart. The album consists of ten songs that Sarah wrote in Berlin while thinking of her hometown Athens. Who Am I was produced together with George Priniotakis at Artracks Studios Athens.

Free is the debut EP released by Sarah P., its cover art depicting a full-grown yet embryonic yin-yang, promising messages of peace & rebirth, renewal, and, essentially: freedom. The artist Sarah P., having recently separated from the popular indie group Keep Shelly In Athens (in which she was lead singer), clearly enjoys the freedom of music making as a solo artist. This latest endeavor is a love letter to her inner psyche, to the rich and untamed expression within — “I wanted it to escalate” says Sarah, “I wanted it to have many colors.” The album is a personal journey, following the rich palette of emotion and feeling associated with life’s darkest lows, along with the brilliance of finding light once again.
