Sara Kays Debuts ‘Camera Shy’ EP

By  | 

Pop singer-songwriter Sara Kays released her debut EP, Camera Shy.

“I’m literally camera shy. In a group photo, I’ll be standing off to the side. It’s the overarching theme of the EP,” Kays shared. “Most of my songs are about how it’s okay to be struggling because I haven’t really gotten out of it—but it does get better. We’re all in this struggle together, and it’s all good.”


Receiving her first guitar as a gift at 12-years-old, the Nashville-based artist often busked for two-to-three hours at local restaurants multiple times per week in high school before meeting producer Steven Martinez and taking a trip to Nashville to record with him. Dropping “Rich Boy” in 2018, she slowly but surely started to build an audience over the past two years.

After attracting nearly 850K TikTok followers and racking up over 12M worldwide streams in just a year, Sara’s 7-track collection showcases her uniquely comforting, cathartic, and catchy brand of alternative pop. With Camera Shy, the 21-year-old artist turns her internal struggles with isolation, body image, and a fractured family into bravely candid acoustic songcraft that captures her personal fears while simultaneously offering listeners relief through her relatable storytelling.
