Sabrina Fallah, aspiring Ottawa based artist shares thoughts...

Sabrina Fallah

I've finally got a chance to chat with Sabrina, unfortunately not face to face but local covid-19 restrictions dictated a virtual approach. Hopefully sometime soon I'll be able to see Sabrina perform live and chat.

Q: How did you first get into music?
I feel I was brought into this world to be in music. Since I was very young, all I wanted was to be in music. My parents told me I was humming tunes as a baby before I could even speak. When I was 6 or 7, I started writing poetry and short stories, which then lead me to song writing. At the age of 10, I started taking piano lessons 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. My cousin introduced me to Green Day’s music and when I heard their “American Idiot” album, I then realized I wanted to be a rock singer.

Q: Did someone inspire you to make music the way you do?
That is a very good question. Thinking back when I first started writing, I always liked writing my feelings down on a piece of paper, so I believe that is how I started to write lyrics.

Q. Is your inner world feeding your creativity?
I would say so. I mostly write about feelings, life in general and what we go through. It is not just all about me, but I also write about what others go through.

Q. What is your creative process like?
When I start to write a song, I think of a title on what I want the song to be about. Then I grab my guitar and start strumming and think of lyrics to go along with it. I don't follow a certain method or structure. Every time I write I do things differently, like I might have the lyrics down before the melody, or the melody before the lyrics, or for the lyrics have the chorus written, before the verse. Normally, I just write what I feel and let it flow.

Q. How would you describe the music that you typically create?
All thought I also write slow songs, most of my music is hard rock, edgy, raspy and has a lot of attitude.

Q. What is your favorite song to perform?
I love to perform all of my songs, but "One Chance" would be the first one I would go to.

Q. Which famous musicians do you admire?
I love a lot of musicians. To mention a few would be Green Day, Bon Jovi, Billy Idol, Avril Lavigne, Simple Plan, Kelly Clarkson, Michelle Branch, which have either influenced me and my music or I have enjoyed performing their music.

Q. Who would you most like to collaborate with? There are a lot of musicians I would love to collaborate with. My dream is to work with Green Day.

Q. If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
I would love to open up for Green Day.

Q. What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
I have always wanted to be a detective. I love watching crime shows and try to solve the mystery.

Q. How does your work comment on current social or political issues?
My music doesn't have anything relating to politics. I really do not like politics and what is going on in the world right now.

Q. What’s next for you?
Because of the pandemic that we are facing now, touring to perform live on stage can't happen, but when it does, I will be back on the road. I am doing a lot of writing, online and mainstream radio interviews, as well as online magazine interviews.

Q. What is one message you would give to your fans?
In life you dream about accomplishing something you really want and then you realize how much work you have to do to get it. All you need to do is build up your confidence and believe in yourself. Go for it! Pursue it! Believe that you will succeed! Never Give Up!

Ακούστε το τραγούδι Click on image to view/listen to track!

RVG - I Used To Love You (Official Video)

‘Feral’ is a catharsis, a call to arms, and a forthright indictment of contemporary complacency. Throughout this album isolation is incited, but it never feels hopeless: these songs channel the raw energy of despair and frustration into melodies that often feel victorious, perhaps only because they so aptly supply a soundtrack to the end of days.
“Never Understood Women” is a bangin` tune. Written and produced by a woman.

Deni (Timekode) - Never Understood Women

This skilfully honed song should be 1 of your 5 a day and could increase your alcohol intake, besides being sold as a replacement for vaping! It’s certainly intended to benefit public health because of the feel-good factor. It’s perfect for all occasions relating to fancy footwork on the dance floor and mirrors a sentiment true to all genders. Ibiza summer song if ever.

The Backlash - Everybody But Me

The Backlash formed in Milan during Spring 2013, allthough the four members were all born in the South of Italy. Being the winners in a new bands music contest, they got immediately the chance to play big stages like Tunnel and Alcatraz, establishing themselves as a solid name in Milan's underground music scene.
Spotted by "Dj Henry” (aka Enrico Lezzeri, a well known name for Italian Northern Soul and Mod fans), they got signed by his own RocketMan Records. “3rd Generation”, their first EP, was a collection of six tracks already popular wth live audiences. It got rave reviews, and earned to The Backlash several live dates, in Italy, Spain, France and the UK, enclosing a support for The KVB.
In August 2016 the band decided to take a break from touring, to record their debut full-lenght “Mindtrap”, released in 2018, and promoted with support slots in Milan for We Are Scientists and The Academic, plus several appearances at In A State Of Flux, the leading itinerant festival for italian shoegaze scene. Wanting to be more in control of their schedule, and to reduce the timeframe between recordings and release, The Backlash then concentrated on building their own space and studio: the Right Bright Side.
