Saavi, a Bay-Area based artist, grew up in Redwood City, CA in a single-parent household. As a child, Saavi turned to music as an outlet from various obstacles she faced. Saavi began writing her own music at the age of 8 years old. She joined the local Church Choir for most of her middle-school and high school career, and performed numerous times alongside a professional dance team across the state of California both singing and dancing. Hip-hip/Rap grabbed her attention at a very early age as she used it as a clutch to aid her through personal struggles. Iconic artists such as Eminem, Tupac, and Biggie, to name a few, played a huge impact on not only Saavi’s passion for rap music, but it allowed her to overcome the very obstacles that she believed would ultimately suppress her. Rap became a large part of her life at an early age and has been prominent in her life since.
