Psst! Stay tuned, as this incredible love story has been immortalised in Sapphira’s autobiography and will soon be adapted into a movie!

Sapphira Music the multi-talented singer, dancer, and burlesque performer, is taking the world by storm once again with the release of her highly anticipated new book, Burlesque or Bust. Known for her captivating stage presence and empowering performances, Sapphira has become a prominent figure in the burlesque world, breaking boundaries and challenging societal norms. Now, with the release of her book, she invites readers on a journey behind the sequins, shedding light on the ups and downs, the glitz and the grit, of a burlesque performer’s life.

Burlesque or Bust offers an intimate glimpse into Sapphira’s personal journey as she unravels the layers of her own stories, dreams, and struggles. With candid storytelling and vivid anecdotes, she dives into the world of burlesque, exploring its rich history, the art of the tease, and the empowerment that comes from embracing one’s sensuality. Through her book, Sapphira hopes to shatter the misconceptions surrounding burlesque and inspire readers to embrace their own unique inner glamour.

The spot, literally, where we did our photo shoot is where Tony and I not only first met, but it’s with Eurostar I was able to complete another important mission! My book ‘Burlesque or Bust‘ references The Spot, which is King’s Cross and St Pancras, it’s where so many incredible meetings and events have taken place.  Possibly one of the most significant was when I caught the Eurostar to Paris to meet the composer of the song that really saved me during my dark time.


Beyond just a memoir, Burlesque or Bust acts as a guidebook for those who wish to explore the world of burlesque themselves. Sapphira shares practical tips and advice for budding performers, from creating breathtaking costumes to choreographing sultry routines. She also emphasises the importance of self-love, body positivity, and embracing one’s flaws as essential components of a successful burlesque career. Sapphira’s writing exudes passion and authenticity, captivating readers and encouraging them to embrace their own inner showgirl, unlocking their true potential.
