POESY is the solo project of Toronto-based singer/songwriter 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 (Fresh Alternative, Brand New Music, Fresh Pop, Your Fresh AlternaBve), Apple Music (Breaking Rock). She has also been seen on tour with Matthew Good, Tyler Shaw, Scott Helman, The Beaches, Born Ruffians and Bad Child. 


POESY was initially discovered after she appeared on the first season of hit Canadian music show, THE LAUNCH. Her performance captivated the judges and the hearts of millions across the country. Her incredible breakout performance propelled POESY to new heights yet unseen, landing her a major label deal with Big Machine Records. Met with an incredible reception, captivating audiences with her soaring vocals and extraordinary talent, 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.


For her next offering POESY delivers "Diamonds," a song about dragging yourself through a dark time to get to the other side. "A diamond is made under huge amounts of pressure, but is of incredible valuable - just like we are as humans." ​


She is currently in the (virtual) studio wth UK producer Stephen Lipson (Annie Lennox, Billie Eilish) working on her latest body of work. When she's not doing that, you can find her cuddled up with a book and her cat Penny, or collecting a new deck of tarot cards.
