Welcome to BuzzMusic Sasha! We're so excited about your new single "Brooklyn"! Tell us more about the creation of the song!
Hi, thank you so much for having me! I am so grateful and excited to be releasing new music and visuals! It's been a lot of fun. I wrote this song after my first time exploring Brooklyn. I had been introduced to someone from the neighborhood who had such a "Brooklyn" way about him- I immediately went home and wrote a song about my experience. Brooklyn is a beautiful and multicultural community founded on hard-working people who immigrated over to America in search for a better life. I love the high energy as well as the small-town vibes within each neighborhood. I wrote the song acoustic originally and then turned it into a more pop/hip-hop type record. It's a positive, fun-loving, romantic song that I wrote about an amazing place that I now call home!
We found "Brooklyn" to be incredibly pure and honest. As listeners, we feel connected to you and your story in the song. Is it hard for you to expose your honest and true side to your listeners through your music?
All of my music is from the heart. I have truly put my emotions and inner feelings out there through my music and I believe people appreciate that. The honesty that comes through my lyrics give me a sense of liberation, relief, and community because I know other people experience similar things in life and can relate heavily to my music. I sing about love, relationships, hard times, addictions, independence, equality, and try to capture moments and freeze them in time through song. Being myself is the only thing I know how to be and I am grateful to have music as an outlet for self expression.
We love the air of authenticity you bring to your music. How do you feel you come off to the majority of your listeners, as an artist?
Thank you, I like to keep it real. I feel my listeners get into the story with me. Each song I am telling a story and painting a picture with my lyrics. I think it's fun to put myself in other songs especially if the story resonates with a personal experience of my own. I think the power is in the words. If the story is real- your listeners will know and will feel it too.
Do you feel like you face any predominant challenges in the music scene? What kind of challenges have you faced that have ultimately shaped you as an artist today?
I have an incredible team of hardworking people in my corner who mentor, work with me, challenge me, inspire me, and look out for me. I have been taken advantage of in a plethora of ways since being in the music industry however, I am grateful for those experiences for making me smarter, stronger, and ultimately recognize deception from far away. I have learned to trust my instincts and if it doesn't feel right, it most likely isn't right.
Thanks for chatting with us! How has performing been lately? Are you planning on playing more shows in the near future?
