*Update: Hey folks! Back again interviewing the mega talented Sabrina Fallah about her rocktastic music, which obviously we'll be reviewing soon! Enjoy our little discussing with her below!*
Nimrod Street: How’d you get started being a musician?
Sabrina Fallah: When I was very young, I loved writing short stories, especially in school. This lead me to writing poems and songs. I started learning piano at the age of 10. One day a friend of my family advised me that since I can't carry the piano around with me, I should learn another instrument like the guitar. I rented a guitar for a month, but after two weeks I loved it so much, that I went ahead and bought a guitar. Then I was able to add music to my lyrics.
NS: What age did you begin to sing and then play guitar?
SF: I started singing at the age of 14 and grabbed the guitar at 16. I have been told that I started humming tunes before I could even talk.
NS: Which do you enjoy doing more (singing or guitar) either in recording or live?
SF: I love performing and being in the studio recording, but nothing beats rocking out in front of a crowd.
NS: Who were your early musical influences and what are some of your current ones?
SF: When I first started, I didn't know what style of a singer I wanted to be. But, when I heard Green Day's "American Idiot" album when it came out in 2004, it was then that I knew I wanted to become a rock singer. Green Day is my main influence, but I am also influenced by Bon Jovi and Billy Idol.
NS: Your voice and musical style reminds me of Joan Jett. I wanna know if she influenced you at all?
SF: She hasn't really influenced me, but I get told a lot that I sound like her when I sing. It is cool, I take it as a compliment.
NS: What preparations do you do when inspired to write lyrics and then turn them into a full-length song?
SF: When an idea comes to my mind, I write it on a piece of paper or on my cell phone. I usually write songs with my guitar. As I create the music, I write the lyrics.
NS: I see on your social sites that you recorded a batch of songs in Nashville. How did that experience help you grow as a singer?
SF: I very much enjoyed my time in Nashville and learned a lot from the team that I worked with. I worked with amazing songwriters, it was a different experience with each one. They each had their own unique style of writing and structuring the song. I had a lot of fun recording my vocals in the studio and learned a great deal. Every studio experience has been different. Kent Wells taught me a lot vocally, which I will take with me and use when I record and perform.
NS: When can we expect to see them posted on YouTube or any other musical platform?
SF: Hopefully soon, but I don't have a release date yet. Keep an eye out for a YouTube video, which will be about my next record.
NS: Are those songs for your next album or debut album?
SF: These songs are for my next album, which I can't wait to share with the world.
NS: If you have already gone on tour what are the typical crowd reactions when you’re performing?
SF: When I perform, I get really good reactions to my music. It is a really nice feeling to see and hear the positive feedback from the crowd. I have often been approached by people telling me that they especially enjoy my original music.
NS: What’s next for the great singer and songwriter Sabrina Fallah?
SF: Releasing new music and performing.
