Life and careerEdit

Early lifeEdit

Sabine Bursöhurt was born in the Hoffmann district of Ubenmoor. Her mother Olya was a homemaker while her father Burs was a surgeon. She had an older brother Burs Jr., and a younger sister Jemma. The family was upper class, with Bursöhurt's mother being extremely prominent in the Hoffmann socialites scene.

She attended a private primary school in Ubenmoor, and went on to attend the prestigious Queen Maria's School for the Performing Arts for high school, graduating in 1964.


After graduating high school, Bursöhurt was signed to Cyclops Music and began releasing music professionally. Her early releases were notable for their fast tempo and use of electric guitars and keyboards. She developed a name for herself and a large following in the 1960s, and became a household name in the 1970s.


Bursöhurt took a brief hiatus from music from the late-1980s to early-1990s following her divorce. However, in 1995 she released her first studio album in a decade titled Mi, mia, ö mie (Me, Myself, and I in English). The album reached the number-one spot on the Lashardian albums chart, and was the best selling vinyl album of the year. She released five other albums from 1997-2006. She was inducted into the Lashardian Music Hall of Fame in 2007.


In 2010, Bursöhurt released her twentieth studio album, 20. The album reached number-one on the Lashardian albums chart and is the best selling physical album of the decade. In 2014, Bursöhurt was revealed as one of the judges of The X Factor: Lashardia. She mentored the girls and one of her acts, Olga Davorcha went on to win the competition. After the first season, she left the show in order to focus on her career and was replaced by Ebona Jonölark.

Personal lifeEdit

In 1970, Bursöhurt married Lashardian record producer Jess Halmödash. The two had three children together: Elliot in 1975, Maria in 1980, and Filippa in 1985. They divorced in 1987. In 1992, she married businessman Ed Mashörodd, but they divorced in 1998. She married Pesan dancer Ervin Machi in 2003, who is forty years her junior. Her marriage to Machi achieved big media attention in both Lashardia and Pesa. Her and Machi currently split their time between Hoffmann, Ubenmoor in Lashardia and Port of Lashardia in Pesa.
