INTERVIEW WITH SABRINA FALLAH
So I had a chance to do a quick interview with Sabrina Fallah an amazing Female Canadian Rock artist so I started with getting to know her past first.
Here are the questions below:
What got you started in music?
My parents told me I was humming tunes as a baby before I could even speak. When I was very young, I started writing poetry and short stories, which then lead me to songwriting. At the age of 10, I started learning the piano and at 15 or 16, I started learning guitar. I won my first singing competition at 14 performing”One Day” by Simple Plan and that was when I knew I wanted to become a professional singer.
Who are your main influences and why?
My main influence is Green Day because their “American Idiot” album got me to realize that I wanted to become a rock singer. Bon Jovi and Billy Idol are also my influences because they have inspired me a lot in my music.
What has the journey been like?
Being a rock singer in the music industry today can be very hard, especially when some people don’t believe that females can sing rock. I even had problems putting a band together or join one, because they didn’t believe I could sing rock. They assumed I couldn’t sing it before they even heard my music. I even had a producer that wanted to change me to pop and I refused and walked away. I am very happy that I was strong enough to believe in myself and my music and never let anyone make me doubt myself and to change me to someone that I am not.
As you know, some of the female rock singers like Pat Benatar and Joan Jett experienced difficulties at the beginning of their careers, but they persevered and became very successful.
What was the first mainstream radio station you were played on and how did that help you today?
In November 2019, Ron Carson on WSBS Radio (860 AM and 94.1 FM) interviewed me and played two of my songs, “The Frontline” and “Hurt” live on air. He also wrote a beautiful blog post about me the night before the interview.
A few months after this interview, Ron aired it again and that was when the listeners started calling into the station to request my songs.
This helped me a lot because I needed one person to take a chance on me and Ron believed in me and gave me that opportunity. After that, I have been getting featured and in rotation on mainstream radio stations in Canada, the United States, and Brazil.
After finding out about Sabrina a bit more I wanted to understand how she is today and how her past charged her to now
How do you find your style of writing has changed from when you started to present?
I don’t think my style of writing has changed at all. I always write on what I and others go through. I write songs that people can relate to and also help them with what they are going through. But, of course, I have matured and improved my songwriting skills.
What has been the hardest about getting music out?
I think the hardest part about getting my music out is getting it heard worldwide. But now that I am being played on mainstream radios, I think that will help get my music heard more.
What is your favorite song or album so far and why?
I love all the songs I have written, it is hard to choose just one.
How is the virus affecting you creatively?
The virus isn’t affecting me a lot creatively, I am still writing. I just don’t like that I can’t do what I used to do when I could go out, which was giving me inspiration for more songwriting ideas.
How do you think this virus will change you? (ie more song ideas etc)
I don’t really know how this virus situation will change me, but I won’t be writing a song about it. The reason is that when it is over, I don’t want people to keep remembering something so tragic. I know artists are writing songs about it, and that is fine, but I just don’t want to do it. As a songwriter, when I write my songs, I put myself in that moment and the state of mind to get my feelings out and I just don’t want to put myself through that.
What has been the biggest turning point for you as an artist so far?
I think it would be finally getting played on mainstream radios.
So whats can we expect in the future with Sabrina Read on to find out
What are your goals for the upcoming months?
My goals for the upcoming months would be to get on more mainstream radio stations and do more radio and magazine interviews. Also, continuing to write new music.
Any plans for new songs?
I am writing some new songs and hope to get into the studio once everything is okay for us to go back out.
What can fans expect in the next few months?
Considering the situation we are in now, I can only work on getting my songs on more radio stations and doing interviews.
Do you plan on trying to tour more after the dust settles?
I will definitely be performing a lot when everything settles.
