"First brockville music and dance festival promises something for everyone"

EMC Events - The lineup of events is rich and varied, 25 different acts will take to the stage for the first ever Brockville Music and Dance (MAD) Festival, July 27.

The Youth Volunteer Crew, a program of the Employment and Education Centre, is hosting the event, which will celebrate music and dance. The full day will feature something for everyone, young and young at heart, beginning at 12 noon and running until 10:30 p.m. at the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre.

"Although we have targeted young performers," Manny Dizwani, YVC coordinator noted, "this event is for everybody of all ages. This is for all ages and all members of our community."

Dizwani encourages folks to come out to the event, to give it a try. The day's line up of entertainment will leave everyone satisfied. And he noted, the event goes all day, so people can always come and go as they wish. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase as well.

"This event, whose aim is largely to bring the community together to celebrate art and showcase the dance and musical talents of our local and regional performers," is also serving as a fundraiser for the YVC program. All

"Our program is dependent on grants and fundraising to continue," he said. "It is quite an expensive program to run."

And the Youth Advisory Council has also worked hard to raise funds to put the event on, already bringing in about $1,500 to go towards startup costs.

While this festival is serving to raise funds, the YVC also wants to "provide a quality event, mainly for the benefit and entertainment of Brockville and area community. As well, it is important for us to support and encourage our local musicians, including budding youth performers and this event will provide such a platform."

Musicians include, Peter Joynt (of the Ottawa Senators theme-song fame), from Ottawa, Josef Mieto, Sabrina Fallah and well known Ottawa band "Mosely", as well as Montreal band "The Sound Approach". Brockville talent in the line-up includes Aislinn McAllister, Vala Hartry, Brandon Roderick, and more. Genres of music will include acoustic, pop, rock, blues and more.

Mosely and The Sound Approach, according to information provided by Dizwani, "recently toured eastern Canada for four months doing motivational assemblies in high schools with the nonprofit organization Live Different." A number of acts have also released records which will also be available for sale at the festival.

Dance performances are coming from various regional studios including Boldt Dance, Thrill Dancers, Studio C, Broadway Dance Academy and Dream in Motion from Gananoque. Performers, for the most part are age 27 and below.

Tickets are available in advance for $15, at the door for $18, children eight years of age and under are free.

holetown festival opener delights the senses




The 35th Holetown Festival kicked off yesterday with a potpourri of talent that satisfied the scores of patrons who attended the official opening ceremony.


Held in the car park of the West Mall, Holetown, St. James, there was something for every taste -- from the prayers said by Pastor Victor Payne to the Barbados Light & Power's Pan Fest that brought the curtain down on the first event of the week-long festival, which celebrates the anniversary of the arrivals of the first settlers on the island.


This year, the males in the line-up were fantastic!


From the songs rendered by the award winning St. Leonard's Boys' Secondary School Choir, to the four-member Advent Boys, to saxophonist Ricky Niles' who blew a thrilling The Prayer, they all left the audience wanting more.


Dancin' Africa was a delight as was songbird Ria Borman, who was superb in both her renditions. Singer Torisha Holder gave a great performance as well as singer/guitarist, Sabrina Fallah who did a Bon Jovi song and the precision of the Zouave Band of the Barbados Defence Force was remarkable.


The 2011 Queen of the Festival contestants were also introduced to the audience.


With the opening ceremony, during which Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley gave the feature address, out of the way, it was time for the steel pannists to lick sticks.


The Reddy Panners played a selection of songs that were well received but it was the very talented Haringey Young Musicians from England who delighted the audience with an eight-song set that earned them a standing ovation.


Not only did they play tunes such as Carnival and Roll It, I feel Good and Empire State of Mind, Pan Army, Dead or Alive, Hold You, but they did so with such aplomb that it earned them rapturous applause.


The performances set the stage for what should be a great week. (DS)

"Trans Canada Radio"

In the Greater Toronto Area, rappers are a dime a dozen, but artists are one of a kind. James Richfield, is exactly that. One of a kind. Struggle, perseverance, ambition, and inspiration are no stranger to James. Growing up, James was very much into Much Music and Electric Circus often dancing and singing along with his favorite artists such as Billy Idol, Iggy Pop, Billy Joel, Van Halen, Kiss, and much more. Although many children show signs of what they’re meant to be from and an early age, James took his time really settling into music.

I recently got in touch with the man himself and we discussed his music and what it’s like to work towards becoming a musician in Canada.

Bambi Blue: According to your biography, you took some time settling into the idea of music: Where and how did you finally make your start in music and what really motivated you to really jump in?

James Richfield: I started into songwriting when I was seventeen. At first I didn’t get too in depth with it. I didn’t consider making a future career out of it. It was more like a hobby. Actually, I really started figuring out music by taking songs and writing my own lyrics for them just for laughs. After a while I started to develop my own concepts derived from the original artist’s instrumental flow. Once I started receiving all kinds of feedback, I began to actually consider it more seriously. I’ve always wanted to make a career out of being me. What really motivated me was knowing that people would hear my words and could be influenced by them. With that said, I guess that’s when I knew I was meant to be a musician and help better the world through my creative output.

BB: So fans are a big motivation for you – getting your message out there. What about other artists? I noticed that the influences you’ve listed on your Myspace are really diverse (Korn, Slipknot, Aerosmith, Weezer, Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, etc.). Do you draw anything in particular from any of them?

JR: All my influences all have a similar trait– they’re all where they are at for being themselves and having a relative sense about them that listeners can feel a part of. For example, Korn became an influence to me after their album Issues because they made music from another person’s perspective, putting the listener in the driver seat. I like that concept, so I draw the element of realism and outside-the-norm-thinking from my influences because this is what makes them great bands in my eyes and I think it will help me become great as well.

BB: Where do you see yourself going with music? Where would you like to go? Where do you not want your music to take you?

JR: I want every household in the world, anywhere that sound can be omitted I want to be there. I personally see myself as the next Timbaland – potentially bigger! It’s funny, that’s one of my goals — to go to Mosley Music Group Studios and just boggle Tim’s mind. Also I really used to want to go to Tokyo and perform out there, but not so much now because Kanye went there and now everyone wants to be Kanye and to go to Tokyo. Ugh. I hate wagon jumpers. I want my music to still take me there though, but when the hype dies down. Then I’ll be appreciated more. I don’t want my music to take me into the mainstream. I want to be semi-mainstream. I’d be out there on TV and stuff but not too intensely… (I don’t want to get) to the point where everyone gets sick of me but I like how it is with Busta Rhymes… where people love my music underground and don’t really care if I do an album but when I do they eat it up like a buffet.

BB: Being a musician in Canada myself, I find it difficult to really get out there and become recognizable in the larger scene. Do you find that Canadian musicians really support each other? Do we stick together? Do you have any bands or solo artists that you’ve become friends with that are always there to tell others just how awesome you are and vice versa?

JR: True (Canadian) musicians do support each other. The ones that just want to be the shining star (sic) will step on every last toe so they can walk ahead. We have the potential to stick together but too many people want the spotlight so they use each other to get ahead and in the end, both end up right where they started. I have, actually, become friends with bands, singers, classical musicians and engineers. I talk about them all the time and vice versa theres Mr. Pink (a band from Mississauga), Sabrina Fallah (a rock singer from Ottawa), and Jenni (a violinist from California). It’s really great to have a diverse circle of friends that are involved with music because it keeps you level headed and personally keeps me open to many genres of music.

Stay tuned to TransCanadaRadio for more interviews with artists like James Richfield as well as Canadian concert listings.

As always, I’m reachable and ready to hear from you at: bambi(at)transcanadaradio.com!

"Canada Day jam Rockfest to support Vaughan hospital"

Celebrating Canada’s birthday while rocking out to live music is an annual tradition for thousands of patriots across the country.
This year you can show your national pride, enjoy some live music and raise money for the future Vaughan hospital all at the same time by attending Rockfest 2011 at Dave and Busters, 120 Interchange Way, starting at 1 p.m. Friday, July 1.
The event will feature music by Sabrina Fallah, Pink Floyd tribute band Welcome to the Machine, Woodbridge’s own Supertest, Unbound, Karma Kreeps, Absolute Jack and Rush tribute band My Favorite Headache.
There will also be a chance to win raffle prizes including three leather hockey jackets with NHL team logos, indoor miniature golf passes and gift certificates for local restaurants.
The event is the brainchild of Bill Cincinnato.
“I’ve done fundraisers for the past two years for Sickkids Hospital, Humber River Hospital and also for my son’s school. It’s just something I enjoy doing because it’s going for a good cause,” said the 54-year-old North York resident. “The schools are the last thing the government wants to fund, hospitals are the same thing. It just takes one person to start the ball rolling and then other people will join in and that’s why I’m doing it.”
Mr. Cincinnato, who works in Concord, decided to organize a fundraiser for the future hospital after seeing a sign for the Run for Vaughan during a trip to Canada’s Wonderland with his son Michael earlier this year.
“I love music and I used to promote bands and I figure you know what, what better thing than on Canada Day to have a live concert with seven bands that everybody can enjoy,” he said.
There’s no admission charge, you are simply asked to make a donation at the door.
“Having third-party fundraising activities such as Rockfest gives community members the opportunity to help out in the fashion that they feel will best reach people within their social circles. Not only do events like Rockfest help raise needed funds and awareness for the Vaughan Health Care Foundation, it also enables volunteers with the flexibility to get involved on a short and long-term basis,” Bob Baker, Vaughan Health Care Foundation president and CEO, said. “Community organized support makes it possible for the foundation to better focus limited staff resources on achieving our goal of bringing a much-needed health care facility to the City of Vaughan.
“Bill Cincinnato is one such community member who is trying to make a difference. Rockfest is Bill’s way of connecting with others who share your passion and commitment of bringing a hospital Vaughan.” - Adam Martin-Robbins

"May 2016 - What's New With Sabrina Fallah"

*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. - Nimrod Street

"August 2013 - Sabrina Fallah: Rockstar from Ottawa"

Sabrina Fallah is a singer from Ottawa, Ontario. She has performed in festivals, bars, restaurants, and charity events. She is always equipped with her guitar and always brings her energy and determination to the stage. Her music has been described as rock and punk.

“I’ve been humming tunes since I was like a baby. So my Grandpa would always sing to me and I would hum back. So I think I always had the music in me, and around fourteen, I’m like, I did a competition, and yet I cried two hours before going on that stage for the first time. I did it and, yeah since that day I’m like, I wanna do this.”

When Fallah was younger she enjoyed listening to Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, and Andrea Bocelli. She used to play the piano, and when she was sixteen she began to play guitar.

“I’ve always wanted to be around music. I really, I can’t live without it really. It’s like, it has to be in my ear or I’ll have to hear it – anything – I just love music.”

Fallah prefers to play in front of a larger audience than a small crowd. “The bigger the better actually, because they give me more fire, but if I can get more than 1000 people, I’m like, now my body is ready to blow, like it makes me wanna really rock the stage. But I like to rock the stage, it doesn’t matter how many people, but I love the more people there -it helps me. Because they cheer you on, they scream, they dance, it makes you move.”

Fallah has played in bands before, the first one being for band camp. “There were twenty-four bands and twelve could win to play at Bluesfest, and twelve could win to play at a bar. I got the Bluesfest – so happy – so now I can say I played there. But it’s very hard to play there without a band. So I got that chance, and I played a round with people and then I got a band – it didn’t last very long. When they don’t have the same dreams, you don’t stay with them right? But you know, that told me – they weren’t serious. So I kinda told them, you know what, let’s just go our separate ways, because if you don’t have the same dreams, I won’t go forward. They will because they just wanna jam. But I wanna get on the stage, I wanna get out there. So, since I left them, oh my gosh, I’ve done so much.”

“I was still young, very young, I told myself, whatever songs I did with them, I’m gonna learn solo and I’m gonna go do this.”

Leaving them and going solo gave Fallah a lot of confidence. “I can’t even put a band together that will stick. Why wait, just go do it. And then I’ve done the Bluesfest, I’ve done the Westfest in Ottawa, I did the Tulip Festival, after so many years I’ve been trying to get in, I finally got in this year.”

With her new found confidence, other bands have begun to discover Fallah over social media. “They just said ‘I search Ottawa or something – Ottawa rock singer’ and they find me, and they ask me to open up for them. So I have people finding me now, and also at gigs or at open mic’s. I have – I connect with people and they bring me to their shows, I bring them to mine. So I’m getting a lot of more shows through people as well as people finding me. So I think that’s how it is, it’s all the networking and meeting the right people to bring you to the right venues.”

When Fallah is performing on stage, she has had some problems such as a string breaking; however, that won’t rattle the poise and confidence that she brings with her to the venue each time. “Oh yeah, string breaks on a stage, it’s so awesome because I just go on like nothing happened, but you have to, I guess I have to tune up, it depends, if I had more guitars, I could change it. But I don’t, so I just pray that today it won’t break. But I do have extra strings with me, I’m always set.”

When Fallah first started performing, she had no idea what she should say on stage. “I was very like Oh my god I am, I’m actually a very shy person; I used to be so shy that I used music to get me away from it. Because it would stop me from doing things in life, not just music, like I couldn’t even answer a phone, I couldn’t even order my own. I had been through a lot of problems, so music has helped me a lot, because it makes me talk, it makes me meet people, and it makes me communicate.”

After a year of performing at many shows, Fallah has been able to improvise and just say what’s on her mind. “I used to think twice and say, Should I say that? But no, no, I just say it. Because that might be what attracts them, you know?”

Despite still learning to talk on the stage, Fallah feels “more confident” and “more up front about it.” She also says she is no longer afraid to talk to an audience.

“I used to be like, ‘What do I say now? Everybody goes through that at the beginning like, what do I say? Some of them say ‘Tell a story, or explain your song,’ or ‘Just go from one song to the next’ like I do you know. Every stage I do something different, and I take it, because it worked.”

Fallah’s most recent album was released on April 1, 2012. Songs on the album were inspired by rock legends, Green Day and Bon Jovi. “My main, main, number one influence – love of my life influence is Green Day. And Bon Jovi came slightly after because I’m like, my song Breakthrough has more Bon Jovi feel than Green Day, because it’s slower, it has more of that feel. One Chance is more aggressive, it’s more Green Day.”

On this record, Fallah wants to express her music through her words, not through others. “I’m just trying to tell the world who I am and what I’ve been through in life.” She expands by saying, “But what inspired me is I wanted to be myself on my record, and be who I wanna be and show the world who Sabrina is and not what people tell me to be – who I wanna be, and I’m glad I can do that now.”

“I get asked a lot of questions, like for advice, so I wrote a song on some people asking questions to people. My friends always come to me for everything.” This is what inspired the song Ask, which is about “not being afraid to ask for help.”

“And Breakthrough is about me the most. I used to be scared of doing music – beyond. I’m like, can I do this?’ I’m like, if they can do it, I can do it. You know, and then I said, why don’t I just write a song based on being scared of doing what you love. And then I break in through that fear right? So Breakthrough is about not giving up what you love, and going through it.”

Fallah’s says the songs on the record relate to the last five years of her life.

Fallah’s record is different from other artists’ music; the record doesn’t feature just one style. “My record has different styles of rock on it because I want it to be a variety to not get people bored of what they’re hearing.”

Fallah’s music can be heard in College and University radio stations in the United States, Europe, and here in Canada.

She hopes to one day have her songs played in movies and on television. “It would be cool in a movie; Ask should be in a movie. Asking for help is perfect for like an advertisement. I would love to get Ask out there because it’s something somebody would love, you know, always ask for help, you know, it’s like telling those kids to ask for help.”

On Sunday August 19, 2012, Fallah opened up for The Shrugs at The Brass Monkey in Ottawa, Ontario. - Matt Green

"May 2016 - Keep An Eye On Hot Young Artist Sabrina Fallah"

*Update: As we said before here's our review of Sabrina Fallah and be sure to check out our interview with her. Enjoy it!*

Hello everyone! As promised I am back again with another artist review and this time it’s with the lovely Sabrina Fallah. I’m glad I met her through social media because she is the epitome of raw talent in the flesh. You think that just because you’ve seen countless girls with guitars singing about lost love that it’s all been done, but ladies and gentlemen today’s your lucky day because you’ve literally struck musical gold. Please keep reading to learn more about this spectacular artist.

We’ll begin by saying that Sabrina has incredible vocal ability that’s been described as, “powerful, uniquely different, raspy, and strong with a special edge of its own.” I spoke to the singer-songwriter about how she began her musical journey, and it all began during her junior high days, and even into her young adult life.

“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.”

Fallah also has influences ranging from Bon Jovi, Billy Idol and even Green Day. The latter of which propelled her genre style into that of a punk rocker after hearing “American Idiot”. It has since paid off when recording her first self-titled EP releasing the first single, “The Frontline”. As of right now she worked on a new batch of songs all recorded in Nashville, Tennessee and are said to be released via YouTube for all the world to indulge in.

Going into detail about the aforementioned track Fallah has the attitude and recklessness to rival even the most well known classic rockers from the 70’s. It’s punk rock music in all its glory: combining a sneering vocal growl with shredding guitars and a pounding drum it’s one number you can turn up past eleven - hopefully you won’t break the speakers.

As for other songs I enjoy “All Or Nothing”, which reminds me of rock queens Liz Phair as well as Joan Jett in terms of vocals but musically still registers pop hooks so they stick in your head for a while. I quite like the approach Fallah took in crafting this track. The drummer seems right on point creating a bouncy beat, while the guitar picks out its final notes when the tune comes to an end - Another good song to listen to.

And finally, “One Chance” really shows off Fallah’s singing flowing beautifully and naturally when hitting higher notes. At one point during the track a riff is played out beautifully and I enjoyed listening to it. I love when both Sabrina’s singing and playing come out during a song and they definitely do while this track unfolds.

Have you already heard of Sabrina Fallah? Do you agree with my above statements? Check her out in the links below and I’m sure you won’t regret it.

Hey Sabrina! Thanks for taking time out your busy life to do an interview with us today. Let the people know where you're from and a little about what you're up to.

My name is Sabrina Fallah and I am a rock artist from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In February 2016, I got the opportunity to go to Nashville, Tennessee to write new songs with really talented songwriters and to record my new EP with veteran producer Kent Wells. While I was there, I also filmed two acoustic for my songs "Paradise Comes With A Price" and "Hurt". You can watch these videos on my Youtube channel (thefallah). I released my EP "Kiss Is A Killer" in June on iTunes.

Tell us about some of the tracks on the new EP album!

The tracks on my new EP "Kiss Is A Killer" are "Kiss Is A Killer", "Stuck Up", "Didn't Last", "Paradise Comes With a Price" and "Hurt". "Kiss Is A Killer" is a fun song about a girl who is dating this bad boy that gives the best kiss ever that melts her heart. "Stuck Up" is about people who think they are the best and know everything. "Didn't Last" is about a relationship that didn't last and won't ever last, because you will never go back to that relationship. "Paradise Comes With a Price" is a song about depression. "Hurt" is about friends you trusted that never supported you in what you love to do and were never there for you, all they cared about was themselves.

Is there a particular track you are most excited for fans to hear?

The track I was most excited for my supporters to hear was "Paradise Comes With a Price", because I wrote it for people to have hope and to save lives. I know a lot of people suffer from depression and I wanted to help them get through it. The acoustic video for this song is on my YouTube channel (thefallah).

How about you tell us a bit more about yourself... what influences your music creativity?

I write about what I go through in life and what I see people go through. Basically, I put my feelings and experiences down on paper.

Is image important for Sabrina Fallah?

Image is very important, especially when you release a record, you have an image that goes with it.

When you were growing up, who represented the idea of rock stardom to you?

Green Day! When I heard their "American Idiot" album in 2004, I knew right then that I wanted to become a rock singer.

Has being a musician what you expected?

Yes, definitely. It is a lot of work and commitment.

Name something interesting about performing that few people actually realize?

Getting reaction and feedback from the audience while I am singing. It feels amazing.

So tell me, who would you like to collaborate with if you got the chance?

I would love to collaborate with many artists like Green Day, Bon Jovi, Billy Idol, Simple Plan, Hedley, Michelle Branch, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson and more.

Is there something you wish you knew about the music industry, but don't know yet?

That is a really tough question. I do a lot of research and have a lot of knowledge of the music industry.

Ok, final question. What can we expect from Sabrina Fallah in the future?

I just released my EP "Kiss Is a Killer" in June 2016 on iTunes, which I recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. I will certainly continue to do more songwriting and performing. I will definitely be releasing more songs in the future.

Good luck with the EP album. And thank you again for taking the time out to speak to us today, and we wish you the upmost best for your music career!

"December 2016 - An Interview With Ottawa Musician: Sabrina Fallah"

1) First off, where are you from? Tell me a little about your life/family.

I am from Canada, born in Ottawa, Ontario. I am an only child [and] music has always been my biggest passion. Although music is my main interest, I also like baking cookies, cakes, brownies, etc. My favourite meal is pizza, and I love chocolate, especially obsessed with M&Ms.
My parents are originally from Iran and came to Canada around 40 years ago. My mother has always enjoyed all kinds of music, but I think I got my musical interests from my dad. He used to have his band, and he always says that I am living his dream. I find myself very lucky that I have [such] a supportive family.

2) What is your back story? How did you know that music was what you wanted most in life? Meaning, at what age did you go, ‘this is it, this is my passion.’

I was always into music. My parents tell me that I used to hum tunes before I could even talk. By the time I was 14, I knew this was what I wanted to do.

3) How did you go about your band mates and knowing these were the people that were going to join you on your journey through music?

I am mainly a solo artist. I don’t have a permanent band, but I hire one if needed for a show. I am a solo artist, and I either write by myself or with another songwriter. I only use a band when needed for recording or for shows.

4) Who are your influences? Could be both musically and personally. For musically, what are your favorite bands? Are they influential at all?

My influences are Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol. You can hear a lot of their influence in my music.

5) How many instruments do you play and when did you start?

I first learned how to play the piano, and that was at the age of 10. Later on, a friend of my family told me something interesting. She told me that it would be hard to carry my piano around and I should learn another instrument. [Since] my cousin always played the guitar around me and I liked it, I decided to learn how to play it. I was 16 when I bought my blue Yamaha acoustic guitar, which I am still playing and enjoying it.

6) You have a unique voice, was it hard for you to find what sound suited your voice?

Not really. I always knew what I wanted my style to sound like using the bands that have influenced me throughout my life.

7) Are your songs ever written about anyone/anything?

All my songs have a true story behind them. I love writing songs that people can relate to and that can help them as well.

8) Do you ever get nervous before you go on stage?

I don’t get overly nervous, but I do think that being a bit nervous helps you do a better performance. Once I finish singing my first song, I start feeling more comfortable being on stage.

9) Tell me a little about the new album.

June 2016, I released my new EP “Kiss Is a Killer” on iTunes, which I recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with Kent Wells. I co-wrote all my songs with really talented songwriters. The five tracks on my record are “Kiss Is a Killer,” “Stuck Up,” “Didn’t Last,” “Paradise Comes With a Price” and “Hurt.” I also released two acoustic videos for my songs “Paradise Comes With a Price” and “Hurt,” which you can watch on my YouTube channel (thefallah). My new EP “Kiss Is a Killer” is on iTunes. I don’t have it as a physical CD or on vinyl. It would be awesome to have my music on vinyl one day.

10) Has there ever been a time when you forgot a lyric on stage? If so, how did you handle it? Did you just hum along or act like nothing happened?

Oh yes, it has happened to me. When I forget a lyric, I just [kept] going like nothing happened. A teacher of mine gave me this advice that if I forget a lyric or mess up a guitar chord, I should keep going and not stop.

"March 2017 - Sabrina Fallah Edition"

Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Sabrina Fallah, talented
singer - songwriter hailing from Ottawa, Ontario.

Dill: When did you decide music would be your career of choice?

Sabrina: From a very young age I was very into music. I wrote my own songs and loved singing for my family. When I was 14 years old I did my first singing competition and won 1st place. It was then that I realized I enjoyed singing and performing and wanted to pursue it as a career.

Dill: How was the response to “Kiss Is A Killer”?

Sabrina: The feedback that I received from those who have listened to "Kiss Is A Killer" has been very positive.

Dill: Walk me through your songwriting process.

Sabrina: It is a bit hard to explain the process, because for me it changes every time. For example, sometimes the idea and the lyrics come first and then the music, other times the music comes first and then I think of a story to go with it. I don't always start writing from beginning to end, sometimes I start with the chorus first, then the verse and vice versa. At times it takes me 5 minutes to finish a song or it might take me days or even weeks.

Dill: Who are some of your influences? Favorite artists?

Sabrina: My influences are Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol. I also enjoy music by Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Simple Plan, Michelle Branch, Hedley, Lukas Graham and more.

Dill: What are your plans for 2017? (touring, new music, etc)

Sabrina: My plans for 2017, continue doing radio and online interviews to promote my EP "Kiss Is a Killer, performing and working on new music.

Dill: If you could choose any bands/artists to perform/collaborate with, who would it be?

Sabrina: There are many artists that I would like to work with, but I would especially love to work with Green Day as they got me into rock music and they are my biggest influence.

Dill: Can you describe the attire you choose to wear when
performing?

Sabrina: I love dark colours and I wear a lot of black. I usually
wear pants, leather jackets and vests. I wear platform heels and I love silver jewelry.

Dill: Can you describe the attire you choose to wear when
performing?

Sabrina: I love dark colours and I wear a lot of black. I usually
wear pants, leather jackets and vests. I wear platform heels and I love silver jewelry.

Dill: Describe the best show you have ever played to date.

Sabrina: It is really hard to choose my best show, because I really enjoyed every single one of them.

Dill: This a terrible question to ask a musical artist, but how would you describe your music to people?

Sabrina: I consider myself a rock singer. My music is original, with a touch of my influences in them.

Dill: Favorite food? Drinks?

Sabrina: My favourite food is pizza. My favourite pop drinks are Pepsi, crush and sprite. I also like coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

Dill: Feel free to share any comments you have for Killerbeat’s readers.

Sabrina: Thank you!

Dill: Thanks for taking the time to participate in this interview. - Killerbeat Magazine


"April 2017 - Sabrina Fallah - Committed To Rock"

You used to hear a lot of lady rockers with big voices on radio. You don't hear so many these days even in the land of indies. I remember quite well when Sabrina Fallah came to IMP, I listened to one song after another and her material was all powerful, it took me awhile to decide which song to feature because they were all really good. We eventually decided on Kiss Is A Killer because of the imagery, and the song has spent a number of weeks in the top 10 of the Kayak Big 25. As you get older in life you don't think about kissing as much as you did in your youth. It's something where the dream is often as powerful as the actual experience. But the kiss is always alive on the big screen and even on the TV screen. Teenagers ponder and agonize over who is kissing who on their favorite shows, you see this on Twitter every day. When Jughead and Betty kissed on the show Riverdale, it was pretty much the kiss heard 'round the world. Sabrina's song is powerful, you feel youth surging thru you when you listen. What are the factors that bring a woman to the point where she rocks like this? This is what I sought to find out in this interview. Sabrina has a powerful spirit, one gets the thought that nothing is going to get in the way of her attaining whatever status she chooses to achieve in the world of rock.

Scott: Okay, is your real name Sabrina Fallah and what's your background in music starting from when you were 3 years old to now?

Sabrina: My birth name is Sabrina Fallah. When I was a baby, I was always humming tunes before I could even talk. My father used to always sing to me when I was young, especially when he was putting me to bed. My father used to be in a band. He has a nice voice and likes to sing all the time. Who knows, maybe I got my voice from him. I have been into music my entire life.


Scott: I see from your page at IMP that you do live shows, what was your biggest and most memorable gig thus far?

Sabrina: Honestly, I have enjoyed every single one of my shows.


Scott: Okay, one of your records was produced by a guy who also produced Led Zeppelin? Who is it, what was it like working with him, and how did you go about getting him to produce you?

Sabrina: The producer you are talking about is Stuart Epps. I was in my Producers class in college and Stuart, through Skype/video chat, gave a lecture to the class about the music business and himself. He asked the class some questions like "who writes music", "who plays an instrument", etc. I raised my hand up a couple of times. I didn't know he could see me, since I was sitting in the corner of the room. He then asked my teacher if he could talk to me. We had a wonderful chat and then he asked if he could hear some of my music. I then got his contact information from my teacher and forwarded a few of the songs I had already recorded. Stuart expressed an interest to work with me and that is how we got to work together to record my record, which became my EP "Sabrina Fallah". Stuart and the band he provided for my record were amazing to work with. They made me feel at home and very comfortable right away. I would love to work with them again.

Scott: Tell us about your backing players on your various records that have been released. Is there one set band or do you improvise each time?

Sabrina: When I make a record the producer provides a band for me. I am a solo artist and don't have a permanent band.

Scott: Why do you think, looking at the annals of rock, that percentage-wise there are so few hard rocking women artists compared to men? and what influences are most responsible for pulling you in that direction?

Sabrina: I am sure there are a lot of talented female rock singers out there, but they aren't getting the exposure that they deserve. Green Day is the band that got me into rock music. When I heard their "American Idiot" album, that was when I knew I wanted to be a rock singer.

Scott: I really liked your song All or Nothing. Is this based on a real philosophy? If so can you tell us about the kind of things you're all or nothing about in real time?

Sabrina: In real life I believe that you have to be committed, work hard and to put your heart completely in it to achieve your goals in life.

Scott: Usually hard rocking women lead a hard rock lifestyle, do you? I notice no tattoos, facially you look clean cut in a way, does rock and roll run thru your veins?

Sabrina: Rock & Roll is in my heart and soul. I don't have tattoos or piercings, but I love wearing a lot of black and makeup when I go on stage. By hard rock lifestyle, if you mean drinking and partying, no I don't do that.

Scott: Okay, this next question is straight-forward, about the elephant in the room. I noticed looking at your videos that on at least one of them you're fairly overweight though not so much on others. Has this ever been a direct obstacle for you as in did anybody note this as a reason for rejecting your efforts to climb in the industry? Does it affect your psyche in regards to your career? What other ways has being a woman been a factor do you believe?

Sabrina: Being a women in the rock genre has been challenging. Regarding stage presence, I have been told and I am aware that I need to be fit.

Scott: Listening to your song Hurt, did that actually happen, you sitting on the floor above the boulevard? Are you happy with your social life? Has being an artist helped or detached you further?

Sabrina: My song "Hurt" is about people who were never there for you and they only cared about themselves. I work very hard on my music and that occupies a lot of my time and as a result, I have had to sacrifice certain things in my life.

Scott: Tell us about your songwriting method, I see you collab some, how does that compare to when you're doing it all yourself? Do you remember when you wrote your first song and what was it?

Sabrina: I have been writing stories and poetry since the 4th grade and then started writing lyrics. I can't remember the first song I ever wrote, but the first songs I ever recorded were called "Don't Go", "Why Did This Happen To Me", etc. I love writing myself, but enjoy collaborating as well. When you write with another songwriter and express your ideas to each other, you never know what amazing lyrics will come out.

Scott: I ask this question to all Spotlight interviewers. Have you ever had any experiences of high strangeness like UFOs or the supernatural (ghosts, etc)

Sabrina: No I haven't, but it is cool if someone has.

Scott: I note that you're a fairly ambitious artist, how hard is it to get your name out there these days? Do you feel at times like you're not doing as well as the quality of your music deserves? What is the current status of your indie dream?

Sabrina: It is very hard to get your name out these days, but having social media on the internet is a great tool to use. My dream is for my music to be heard worldwide.

Scott: If you heard a great band who were struggling in the indie scene, what advice would you give them?

Sabrina: Keep doing what you love! Never give up! - Scott


"April 2017 - Here is the interview that I had with The Diminished Pitch Entertainment Network"

Hello Sabrina In this interview

1) I would like to have you introduce yourself to the reading audience of this text interview so could you please introduce yourself to the reading audience that follows The Diminished Pitch Entertainment Network. So tell the audience a little information about what it is like growing up in Canada, so that they can understand how this may have affected your music writing.

I was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and this is where I have lived my whole life. It is a beautiful city to live in. Canada is an amazing country and anywhere you travel looks different. It is a country that welcomes and celebrates all kinds of cultures, backgrounds and nationalities. There are many languages that are spoken in Canada, but French and English are the two official ones. It is a country that has contributed a lot to the world in many areas like arts and entertainment. To name a few in the music industry, I am sure you have heard of Paul Anka and Alanis Morissette who are actually from Ottawa. There are many other famous musicians like Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Michael Bublé, Avril Lavigne, Hedley, Leonard Cohen, Sarah McLachlan, etc.


2) Before I get into more of the music entertainment questions I would like to ask you a few questions in regards to your background on your Facebook Profile it states that you went to Algonguin College. I would like to know what you studied in College?

I took the Pre-Music Production program at Algonquin college, which was about the music business. I learned a lot about the different aspects of the music industry, such as Recording, Entertainment Law, Producers, Music History and more.


3) In the promotions that I am planning for the Diminished Pitch Spotlight I would like to know what inspired you to write the song Hurt as your lyric states "trying to find a melody that does not sound like misery" what made you decide the melody that you used during the verse out of curiosity?

I co-wrote my song "Hurt" with an amazing songwriter in Nashville. I had the idea already in my mind for a while before I sat with the songwriter. I told him about the idea and he loved it. I wanted the song to be slow and have some Bon Jovi influence in it. He grabbed his guitar and started strumming some chords while we were thinking of the lyrics. The lyrics and melody came out pretty fast. I had a very good time co-writing this song, it is really close to my heart.


4) When it is said that "All Good Things Must Come To An End" by Sir Patrick Stewart of the final episode of Star Trek Next Generation (This and you wrote a tune "Didn't Last" when you look back at what influenced you to write the lyrics to that song do you see any "good things that must come to an end" when you finally released that song on your EP?

Not really. “Didn’t Last” is a song about a relationship that you didn't think was good and strong enough to last. Some things in life that you loose, are meant to be out of your life for a reason. It doesn't always mean that good things come to an end. This is just my opinion.


5) When you sing the song Kiss Is a Killer and you refer to it as Godzilla, I want you to picture an image of what would romantically as a fantasy be in your mind when I compare your song to Queen Classic Song "You Take My Breath Away" so what comparison of thoughts when you hear the lyric "Look into my Eyes and You will see I am the only One" and how would this put an aspect in being a Kiss Is a Killer in such a romantic thought that a writer such as Writer as H L Laffin? So what image do you see it may take a thousand words like a work of art?

Thinking of my song "Kiss Is a Killer" and the lines in the Queen's song, I see that a kiss can take someones breath away, especially when it is so good. The kiss melts your heart and makes you want more. Also, that you want the guy to be only yours.


6) I am going to feature your songs after I get back this text interview I will feature them on a special spotlight that will feature your songs Hurt, Didn't Last, and Kiss Is a Killer with these choices what would you like to say about the other songs on your EP that I am not playing on that showcase?

The other 2 songs are called "Stuck Up" and "Paradise Comes With a Price". “Stuck Up” is about people who think they are the best and know everything. "Paradise Comes With a Price" is a song about depression. I wrote it for people to have hope and to save lives. I know a lot of people suffer from depression and I wanted to help them get through it.


7) A lot of artists dream about playing Nashville, Tennessee that are Canadian Music Artists. I would like for you to tell the reading audience, what it was like to perform your songs that you wrote at the Commodore Bar and Grill in a town known for being part of the roots of American Music Nashville, Tennessee.

It was an amazing experience performing in Nashville. For me it was also an honor to share the stage with very talented songwriters. I got really good reaction and feedback form the audience. Everyone was so welcoming, nice and supportive. I would love to go back.


8) There is a lot of thought to the fact of really feeling the passion in music throughout time and often it is the performance to see the truth about the words that are often sung in a song especially it is about a truthful subject and I find that your heart and passion is in this performance for the song Hurt.

https://www.facebook.com/SabrinaFallah/videos/vb.100001323366011/1017321774988592/?type=3&theater

So when you sing this song do you find it difficult in holding back the memories when you sing this song, but the story is somewhat in a healing process so could you express your thoughts about this topic as you look back on the day that you wrote it?

When I wrote my song "Hurt", I was in a lot of pain and wanted to express my emotions and feelings in a song. I write a lot about what happens in my life and I would like people to be able to relate to my music. I want them to know that no matter what they go through in life, they will be okay. When I sing a song, I put my heart and soul in it. I will never forget the time I wrote "Hurt" and what I went through in my life. So every time I sing it, I feel the pain and that is how I deliver the song on stage. All my songs have a story and a message. I want the listeners to hear it.


9) When it comes to being an interviewer, I often look at the styles of the interviewer one of the interviewers that stands out to me is George Stroumboulopoulos now in saying this who would you like to be interviewed by and the reason why?

I would love to be interviewed by Ryan Seacrest. He has interviewed a lot of artists and he seems like a fun person to talk to.


10) In closing, it was great to interview you before we do a radio show together, so if there is anything that you would like for the reading audience to know about as this will be shared as a PDF for promotions what would you like to promote to your audience!

My EP "Kiss Is a Killer" is on iTunes, which I recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. The 5 tracks on my record are "Kiss Is a Killer", "Stuck Up", "Didn't Last", "Paradise Comes With a Price" and "Hurt". I also released two acoustic videos for my songs "Paradise Comes With a Price" and "Hurt", which you can watch on my YouTube channel (thefallah). You can hear my music on my official website, YouTube, Facebook and more.

Meet The Music Passion of Sabrina Fallah

Interview by Paul Cody and 12 Co-Hosts who Love Sabrina's Music (Click on their names to meet them)

Paul; Sabrina, who are your influences?

Sabrina; My influences are Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol.

Gayle Keeler ; Who would you love to work with?

Sabrina; There are many artists I would love to work with; Green Day, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Simple Plan, Billy Idol, Bon Jovi, Hedley and more.

Paul: Tell me about your song "Kiss Is a Killer"?

Sabrina; I co-wrote this song in Nashville, Tennessee with a songwriter. He came up with the song title, which when I heard it, I knew it was going to be the title of the EP and the single for the record. How the song idea came about was I thought about Grease, you know the guys with the leather pants, leather jackets, trying to be cool to get the girls. You know like bad boys, but not the mean bad boys, the cool bad boys. The boys who gets the girl and gives the best kisses ever. I thought that was a cool idea and we went along with it.

Jennifer Lynn Edwards ; What song have you written that has surprised you in some way?

Sabrina: I think it would have to be my song "Kiss Is a Killer", which I co-wrote, because as soon as I heard my songwriter tell me about the song idea he had, which was "Kiss Is a Killer, I knew it was going to be the title of the EP and the single for the record.

David Guitard; I'd like to ask you if your songs have come from personal experiences that have affected you in a profound way that now come out in your music?

Sabrina: Yes, some of my songs are very close to my heart.

Paul: What got you into music?

Sabrina: The love and passion for it.

Kristin K Cuevas; What song did you first cover?

Sabrina; I don't quite remember the first one, but I can remember playing Avril Lavigne songs.

Paul; If you could open up for one band, who would it be and why?

Sabrina; It would be Green Day, because they are the ones that got me into music.

Carlos Santana; When's the first time you heard green day? And how long did it take for you to fall in love? When did you first realize you wanted to perform?

Sabrina: I heard Green Day when I was 16 years old. I fell in love with them the minute I heard them. I connected with them and they have been my major influence since.

I first realized I wanted to perform at the age of 14 after getting 1st place in a singing competition.

Itzél; What is your biggest motivation?

Sabrina; To stay positive and do what I love.

Paul; What do you love most about performing?

Sabrina; Seeing the people in the crowd dancing and singing along with me. I love the energy that I get on stage.

Kieran Gregory; What hidden talents or hobbies do you have other than music that your fans may be surprised to find out about?

Sabrina; I love to bake cookies, muffins, cupcakes, brownies, cakes, basically anything with chocolate.

Sarah Middleton; How did you get into music and did you have any inspiration from other artists?

Sabrina: I was always writing short stories and poetry when I was younger. Then at some point I decided to write songs, which lead me to start learning an instrument, the guitar, so I could add music to my lyrics. I was always singing, especially when I was a baby, I was humming tunes. Music has always been a part of my life.

All the artists that I listen to have inspired me in many ways.

Ollie Middleton; Is there going to be a video for your song "Stuck Up"?

Sabrina; At this moment I am not sure, but it will definitely be a fun music video to film.

Shamiso; Which famous musicians do you admire? Why? How do you handle mistakes during a performance? Do you get nervous before a performance? Which instrument did u learn first?

Sabrina; I admire a lot of musicians, because they have encouraged me not to give up on what I love to do.

If I mess up a guitar chord on stage, or a song lyric, I just keep going. I don't stop. I also try not to make it noticeable if I do.

Before I go on stage, I get really excited and anxious. Sometimes I get nervous, but I know how to control it. Once I am on stage, it goes away.

The first instrument I learned was the piano when I was 10 years old.

Jeremy; If you could have any super power, what would it be?

Sabrina; It would be invisibility and mind reading. I think those would be cool to have.

Liz; How old were you when you discovered you had the gift for music?

Sabrina; When I was 14 years old, I won 1st place in a singing competition and that was when I knew I wanted to pursue a singing a career.

Thank you,

Sabrina Fallah

"June 2017 - The Return Of Sabrina Fallah"

My name is Sabrina Fallah and I am a rock artist from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In February 2016, I got the opportunity to go to Nashville, Tennessee to write new songs with really talented songwriters and to record my new EP with veteran producer Kent Wells. While I was there, I also filmed two acoustic videos for my songs "Paradise Comes With a Price" and "Hurt". You can watch these videos on my YouTube channel (thefallah). I released my EP "Kiss Is a Killer" in June 2016 on iTunes.

Hello Sabrina, how are you today?

I am doing very well thank you. Really happy it is May and that all the snow has melted in Canada. This month I have a lot of radio interviews, which I am very excited about.

What did friends call you when you were a child?

As a child no one gave me any nick names. But later on I would get called, shortster, shorty, Sabby, Sab, etc.

So what made you want to be a singer?

I have been passionate about music my entire life and have always enjoyed listening to it. One day I decided that I wanted to be a singer. When I heard the "American Idiot" record of Green Day, that was when I knew I wanted to be a rock singer.

Do you sing in the shower?

Yes, I love to sing in the shower all the time.

Have you ever googled yourself?

Oh yes. I love googling myself to see what people have said. Also, I have found interesting articles that were written about me, that I didn't know were on the internet.

Who are your musical influences?

Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol.

What cheers you up on a bad day?

Listening to music and going to the pet store to see the dogs, cats and rabbits. I can't have pets at home, because of my allergies, so I go to the pet store.

Do you have any pre-show rituals?

Before a show I try to relax as much as I can, listen to music and pray.

Who would you like to be as big as music wise?

If I had to choose who I would love to be as big as, it would be Green Day. - RockoutHiphop magazine


"July 2017 - Smash Up Magazine - Sabrina Fallah"

Women rock, and in Sabrina Fallah’s case, she actually does rock. Her guitar-driven melodies might remind you of P!nk or Avril Lavigne, but Fallah’s sweet soprano adds a unique twist.

Her EPs, a self-titled debut and follow-up album “Kiss Is a Killer,” show that she’s been at this for a while. In the 10 years she’s been performing, music has become her full-time work. Her first hint that she wanted to be a singer was at age 14 when she won her first singing competition, but she’s been surrounded by music since childhood. Her cousin would play his guitar and let her hear the new bands he was listening to. Some of her favorites now are Green Day, Bon Jovi, and Billy Idol. This exposure, along with her love of writing short stories and poetry, led her to becoming a singer/songwriter.

Moments in her everyday life inspire her lyrics, but the process itself changes each time. Sometimes, the idea and the lyrics come first, and then the music. Other times, the music comes first, and she thinks of a story to go with it. Sometimes, she starts with the chorus, then the verse, or vice versa. “At times,” she says, “it takes me 5 minutes to finish a song, or it might take me days or even weeks.” Her confessional lyrics focus on love and relationships, not shying away from the pain or the passion. In “Hurt,” she turns the anguish of an ended relationship into something that can heal.

It’s easy to talk about love, but “hurt such a hard four letter word,” she sings. “I’m finally letting go of the hurt/it’s only a feeling,hurt/the pain can start the healing in my soul.” But her writing can also be playful. She goes big on the title track of “Kiss Is a Killer,” declaring, “I’m Tokyo, you’re Godzilla! Your kiss is a killer!”

Being an independent musician is hard work, and a female rocker at that. “[It] hasn’t been easy, because it is known for men to be rockers,” she admits. “It has been hard, but I still push through.” Those tough times–like confronting her fear of singing for crowds–are balanced by the good ones.

“I can’t pick just one,” she says, but “collaborating with other songwriters inspires me to learn more.” Fallah stays motivated by being as busy as she can, with her music as the drive to keep creating. In the future, she’d like to go international, but right now, she tours widely in Ottawa, Toronto, and central Canada. To unwind, she keeps things simple–baking, biking, or binging some of her favorite shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Her advice for others who want to pursue music? “Do what you love and never give up!” - Amara Hartman


"July 2017 - Sabrina Fallah: The ‘Kiss Is a Killer’ Music Interview"

With a powerful voice and vibrancy, singer-songwriter and guitarist Sabrina Fallah was born to be a rocker. After listening to her current five-song EP, Kiss Is a Killer, you will agree the Ottawa, Ontario Canada-based artist is an unstoppable indie music force to be heard. Working with veteran producer Kent Wells, Fallah has served up a collection of original radio-friendly acoustic and electric tracks which are ready for rotation. But this is just the beginning of the story.

Music from the EP

The 3:14 title cut from Kiss Is a Killer revolves around a relationship wrecked by one-sided deceit with Fallah’s voice lending an emotive truth and passion to the charged lyrics. As the singer points out, she’s “Tokyo and you’re Godzilla” and we all know how that ends.

Another standout from the EP, “Didn’t Last,” moves at a slightly different pace, but again with the artist’s voice properly balanced and precisely mixed. Each of the electric tracks also is armed with tightly knit, no-nonsense guitar fills. Hold on, because there is more to the EP.

Acoustic Originals

In Feb. 2016, Sabrina travelled to Nashville where she filmed acoustic videos for two songs on the EP: “Paradise Comes with a Price” and “Hurt.” Each is an unplugged gem featuring the singer, arguably, at her best. While the video for “Paradise Comes with a Price” provides further insight into the artist’s concert charisma, the 2:51 “Hurt,” a song of sensitivity, privacy and pain, has a melody more on par with Nuno Betancourt’s Extreme.

Music Interview Magazine caught up with Sabrina Fallah to discuss Kiss Is a Killer, filming the videos for her songs, live performances and more.

Interview With Sabrina Fallah

While in Nashville last year, you filmed two acoustic videos of songs from your EP, Kiss Is a Killer. Tell us how that came about.

Filming the two acoustic videos for “Hurt” and “Paradise Comes with a Price” was a great experience. They were filmed in Kent Wells’ studio. Kent, who produced my songs, played the acoustic guitar as I sang. It was such a nice atmosphere. The whole team was very professional and helpful.

The acoustic tracks, which include “Hurt” and “Paradise Comes with a Price,” are a bit of a departure from the other songs on the EP. What made you go with the unplugged sound?

When I co-wrote “Hurt” and “Paradise Comes with a Price,” I knew those songs needed to be acoustic. So, I decided to record them acoustically, which gave them a different feel on the record. It’s nice to have some songs with a band and some acoustic.

“Stuck Up”, “Didn’t Last” and the EP’s title cut are all rockers. Do you have a favorite from the album? Is this the first time you worked with veteran music producer Kent Wells? Who are the other musicians on the album?

I love all the songs. I co-wrote “Kiss Is a Killer,” “Stuck Up,” “Didn’t Last,” “Paradise Comes with a Price” and “Hurt,” for Kiss Is a Killer. It is hard to choose a favourite. This was the first time I worked with Kent Wells. I had a lot of fun recording my vocals in the studio and learned a great deal. Every studio experience has been different. Kent taught me a lot vocally, which I will take and use when I record and perform.

The other musicians on the album are Dave Cohen – piano, B3, keyboards; Miles McPherson – drums, percussion, programming; Jerry McPherson – electric guitar; Joeie Canaday – bass guitar; and Kent Wells – acoustic and hi-strung guitars.

On your website, you say that you’ve performed “wherever possible over the years.” What were some of the more interesting venues?

I have performed at a lot of different venues over the years, including bars, festivals, charity events and fundraising events. I enjoyed performing at all of them.

What’s next for Sabrina Fallah?

That will definitely include new music, more performing and interviews.

"August 2017 - Interview with Sabrina Fallah"

Sabrina Fallah is a rock artist from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. A natural on stage with her polished vocals to her guitar playing, this talented singer-songwriter has a powerful voice and a lot of personality. Sabrina has already made a name for herself by performing wherever possible over the years. Her latest album was recorded in Nashville and features co-writing from some of Music City’s finest songwriting talents!

In this interview spotlight, we chat with Sabrina about her latest release, influences, the digital world and more.

Full Q&A along with links and streams below.

Where are you from and what style of music do you create?

I am from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and I create rock music.

What led you down this path of music and what motivates you to stay the course?

I have been around music since I was a child. When I was 14 years old, I won my first singing competition and that was when I knew I wanted to become a singer. When I heard Green Day’s “American Idiot” album, it caught my attention. I loved it so much that I wanted to do rock music. I am very passionate about music and it keeps me going in life.

How is your new release different than previous ones? Did you set out to accomplish anything specific?

My EP “Kiss Is a Killer” was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee and co-written with some great songwriters. I wanted my album to sound a bit harder than my last release. I did add two acoustic songs to my record “Paradise Comes With a Price” and “Hurt”, which I did two acoustic videos for to add a different feel, while my other songs “Kiss Is a Killer”, “Stuck Up” and “Didn’t Last” had a full band.

Do you face challenges as an indie musician in a digital age? How has technology helped you (assuming it helps)?

Since everything is online now and I use social media, I really have to keep everything up to date. I really enjoy using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat and more to post things and communicate with my followers.

"August 2017 - Q&A with Sabrina Fallah - Indie Music Lives Here"

Aj will be joined by Canadian singer/songwriter and guitarist Sabrina Fallah later this week on The IMLH Show. We caught up with her last weekend to say what up and get to know her:

Every blog and/or music podcast asks the same cookie cutter questions. We’re going to mix it up a bit. Your music..define what it means to you and the benefits and challenges of doing it on an independent level?

Music is a big part of my life. I love helping people through messages in my music. Doing music on an independent level is very challenging and requires a lot of hard work, but has given me the room to grow as an artist. I enjoy writing music, recording and performing.

Worst experience at a gig?

Showing up to the venue realizing they had no sound equipment for me to hook up my guitar and mic. However, I did perform acoustically, but not everyone could hear me, because the venue was big.

You’re from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Worst misconception we Americans have of our neighbors to the north?

It seems that some Americans think that Canada has snow all year round and they can come to ski at anytime. I have been told a few times that people don’t come to Canada, because it is always cold.

Your new EP, “Kiss Is a Killer” is unlike anything we’ve featured in a long time. Talk about the journey to this point for you as a singer/songwriter and guitarist?

I have been writing short stories and poetry since I was very young, which lead me to writing songs. When I was 14 I won my first singing competition and that was when I knew I wanted to become a singer. After hearing “American Idiot” by Green Day, I knew that rock was the genre I wanted to follow. I recorded my first selt-titled EP in England with producer Stuart Epps. I then worked with Chris Birkett in Toronto and released my single “The Frontline”. Almost a year later I got the opportunity to go to Nashville to write with a few very talented songwriters and recorded my EP “Kiss Is a Killer” with producer Kent Wells.

Lets paint this picture…you’re at a bar with your favorite all time musicians in a dream scenario. Who’s sitting with you and what are you drinking?

I would be sitting with Green Day having a soda.

Indie Rock Singer/Songwriter Sabrina Fallah credits Green Day, one of her favorite bands that she grew up listening to, for getting her interested in becoming a rock singer. At 14, Fallah started playing the guitar and later she would study the vocal styles of Green Day, Bon Jovi, and Billy Idol because they matched her low, raspy, deep singing style. But vocal training would help her perfect her rock style vocals.

Fallah hails from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada where she performs extensively as well as in Central Canada, and at various Canadian and international venues, festivals, and charity events.

She has worked with some renown producers such as Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zepplin) with whom she recorded her self-titled rock EP. Her 2015 single “The Frontline” was produced by award-winning producer, Chris Birkett who has worked with Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones, and more. In 2016, Fallah got the chance to work with veteran producer Kent Wells in Nashville for her EP “Kiss is a Killer.”

Sabrina is writing new songs and currently has no tours planned.

I interviewed Sabrina recently about her EP, her DJ gig, working with notable producers, international venues, production, and more.

Congratulations on your EP ‘Kiss Is a Killer’. What is the concept or theme?

When I went to Nashville to co-write, I wanted to write about what I and others have been through in their life. I want people to relate to my music when they listen to it.

You have worked with notable producers such as Stuart Epps (worked with Elton John, Led Zepplin, and more) for your self-titled debut EP and with award-winning producer Chris Burkett (Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones, Buffy Sainte Marie and more) for your successful 2015 single “The Frontline”. How did the opportunity come up to work with them? How was it to work with them and any plans to do so again in the future?

I was in my Producers class in college and Stuart, through Skype/video chat, gave a lecture to the class about the music business and himself. He asked the class some questions like “who writes music”, “who plays an instrument”, etc. I raised my hand up a couple of times. I didn’t know he could see me since I was sitting in the corner of the room. He then asked my teacher if he could talk to me. We had a wonderful chat and then he asked if he could hear some of my music. I then got his contact information from my teacher and forwarded a few of the songs I had already recorded. Stuart expressed an interest to work with me and that is how we got to work together to record my first EP self-titled “Sabrina Fallah”. Stuart and the band he provided for my record were amazing to work with. They made me feel at home and very comfortable right away. I would love to work with them again.

When I was in Toronto, I was songwriting and I wanted to find a producer to work with. At one of the meetings at SAC (Songwriters Association of Canada), I met someone who suggested that I should contact Chris Burkett who was into rock music. He then gave me his contact information and I gave Chris a call and arranged a meeting with him.

Working with Stuart Epps and Chris Burkett was a lot of fun. I would definitely love to work with them again.

For your current EP, you worked with veteran producer Kent Wells in Nashville, Tennessee and co-wrote with several songwriters there. What was that experience like? How did co-writing compare to writing original songs yourself? Would you do it again?

My first week in Nashville was really intense, co-writing almost every day with different songwriters. Before arriving in Nashville, I was in contact with the team I was going to work with, so they knew the styles of music I wanted to write and record. Although I had many of my original songs with me, I decided to start fresh and write completely new ones. Every songwriting session was about 2 to 3 hours long, some were written in their offices and some where I was staying.

I had such a great time co-writing, it was a different experience with each writer. They each had their own unique style of writing and structuring the song. I really like how all the new songs have turned out. It was really hard narrowing it down to the few songs we chose to record.

I love writing by myself, but having another songwriter to write with can bring up many new and fresh ideas into the song.

Honestly, I enjoy it both ways.

Explain your production process.

I had a pre-production meeting at the studio with producer Kent Wells. We went through each song to find the right key for my voice. We then chose five songs to be recorded, three with the full band and two acoustically. I was very happy that the ones I really liked got picked.

It was rather late in the evening when the band and I went into the studio to record. I sang rough vocals, while the band played to lay down the tracks to my three songs. It was such a great experience. The band was amazing, very kind and fun. They were such great musicians that it didn’t take us long to record. For the acoustic recordings, which I did the following day, I sang while Kent Wells put down the acoustic guitar tracks.

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.

You have performed extensively in Central Canada as well as Canadian and international venues, festivals, and charities. What other countries have you performed in and what were those experiences like?

I got an amazing opportunity to perform in Barbados at the Holetown Festival in February 2011. I performed on the opening day of the festival and then an evening show near the water during the week. I had such a good time performing and sharing the stage with so many talented musicians. The people were very welcoming and I got to talk to quite a few of the ones who saw my performances.

I also performed in Nashville, Tennessee in the United States while I was working on new music. I got the opportunity to perform a couple of times at the Commodore Bar and Grill. It was a songwriters night and I got to sing my own original songs. There were a lot of amazing talents performing as well. It was really interesting how different that was from a songwriters night in Canada. They would have 3 to 4 artists on the stage at the same time and each would sing one song after the other for a total of 3 to 4 songs for each performer. As you know in Canada, they usually take one artist at a time on stage. I had a really good time and enjoyed performing there.

In an interview, you mentioned listening mostly to male rock singers (Green Day, Bon Jovi, etc) because they match your singing style (low, deep and raspy), but you also decided to have vocal training. Explain how vocal training helped your rock style vocals.

In the beginning, I started singing a lot of different styles of music with no vocal training. When I decided the style I wanted to sing, I got a vocal coach to help me with techniques to sing rock as well as how to protect my vocal chords.

How specifically did your influences, Bon Jovi, Green Day, and Billy Idol, become a part of your unique blend of style?

I learned a lot from them, especially vocally. They are the bands that I grew up with and Green Day is the band that got me into wanting to become a rock singer.

Why do you play more acoustic when performing live?

I play acoustic because I love the sound of it and also I perform at many smaller venues, which I thought was more suitable.

What guitarists influenced or inspired you to start playing at age 14?

I think it was more my cousin, Jeff. He has been around music his entire life and always introduced me to new bands to listen to. He would always play his guitar and that got me interested in trying it out myself and I got hooked on it.

You currently are a DJ on Jungle 77.3, an online radio station. How has this helped your career as a musician?

It is another fun thing to do in music. I love being a DJ on the radio, talking and playing awesome music.

Explain why you don’t think there are many women rockers in indie music. How can more women be encouraged to embrace rock instead of pop music as musicians?

I don’t think it is only the female singers. I think in general a lot of newcomers follow what is current and popular now. A lot of people in the music business and outside wanted me to sing pop music, but I stuck to my guns. I was lucky that

I found producers who had experience in recording rock music, working with female artists and they accepted and encouraged me to do what I wanted.

I personally enjoy rock music and at the same time wanted to be different.

How can women in the indie music industry be better supported?

I believe it is a very tough business for women and as a female singer, all women need to stick together and help each other.

What advice would you give to women pursuing or thinking about a career in music?

Believe in yourself and do what you love to do.

Don’t let anyone say you can’t do it, because you can!

What projects are you working on for 2018?

Currently enjoying being a DJ on Jungle 77.3 and at the same time, writing some new songs.

What are your tour plans for 2018?

No tours planned at the moment. - Linda Garnett


"June 2018 - Voices To Be Heard"

Review and Text Interview with an astounding artist/singer/songwriter: Sabrina Fallah.

Energetic, electrical essence of talent and spirit. Sabrina Fallah. Unique icon of true rock stardom.

A soulful collection that brings you feet first into her music, gracing the passion she shares with us all and holds you to a light of sound and silence.

Watch Sabrina's eyes and you will dive into her soul, finding that spark that holds off the dull moments and brings the thrill of sound filled delight. Lets add her voice to be heard!

We asked. What can you tell me about your life? I am from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and have been here all my life. I went to Algonquin College and took the Pre - Music Production program. I have been interested in music my whole life and my parents tell me that I would hmm music and try to sing even when I couldn't yet speak. I became hoocked to rock music when my cousin introduced me to Green Day's albums 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Dookie. I got my first acoustic guitar when I was 16 years old to accompany myself, to write lyrics and compose music. As you have noticed, most of my life has been devoted to music.

What brings out the passion you show in your music? It is the love for music and being able to tell my story through it.

If you had to choose professions other then being a singer/songwriter, What would you choose? I would love to be a detective, because of mystery or a race car driver, because of speed.

Who is your mentor, growing up and how did that person inspire you? I consider my cousin Jeff as my mentor. He got me into music and encouraged me to pursue it, because of the passion I had for it. Jeff is also a musician himself and has a home recording studio where I have recorded some of my music, which I used to upload on Myspace.

Who are the people behind you that work with you before and during your stage performances? I am a solo artist, so I do everything myself. However, I have very supportive parents who take me to all of my shows. My father usually helps me set up my equipments on stage.

How do you encourage others to be their best when someone do not feel their best? I would try to tell them that everything willl be okay and not to be afraid. I would also try to help them trust themselves and to develop confidence. To be the best is the best you can do and not to compare yourself with others.

What is the first thing you think of before going on stage and what advice would you give someone before they go on? A lot of things go through my mind before I go on stage. For example, worrying about remembering lyrics, doing a good show, and have a little bit of anxiety, which disappears after I sing the first song.

The advice I would give someone before they go on stage is to be confident, not to overthink, have fun and to do their best.

What is the hard part of creating songs? In general, I would say having the song idea, but not being able to express it in words on a piece of paper. Going through writers block can be a struggle and you may have to leave the song for a few days or weeks to rest your mind or compeletely write a new song and then come back to the one you were working on.

Do the words come before the tune or the tune before the lyrics? For me, it happens both ways. Sometimes I have the lyrics first, and sometimes the music.

What charities do you support? I have performed for the following charities Autism, SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), Diabetes and a few more. However, I myself also support Cancer research, Heart & Stroke Foundation and Mental Health.

What would you consider to be a great day for you? Seeing dogs, cats and feeding the squirrels in my backyard. Also, it is a great day when I finish a song I have been working on.

Is there anything you would love to tell the viewers and listeners that is personal and meaningful to you? Life can be taugh and we all have good and bad days. We just need to keep our head up and remain positive and never give up.

What would you call your best life experience? And what happened? When I was very young, I had fear of going on stage. At 14, I decided to participate in a singing competition. The day of the competition I was so scared that I started crying and wanted to go back home. My parents convinced me just to stick around and watch. They told me the decision was mine and that I didn't have to perform as long as I didn't regret it the next day. Once I got inside, I don't know why, but I wanted to be on that stage. So, I performed and won 1st place. I know now if I hadn't push myself to go on stage and perform for public, I wouldn't have ever gotten over my stage fright and be where I am now.

How did you decide you wanted to share your dreams and desires with us all? Music has been a part of my life since I was a child. When I was 15 or 16 I heard Green Day's "American Idiot" album and that was when I knew that I wanted to become a professional rock singer.

Going through bad times and good. How would you help others going through it themselves and what can you say to help from your own experiences? In life you go through a lot and you just have to stay strong, be positive, believe in yourself and keep moving forward.

What do your instincts tell you about some people. And do you listen to them? In life they always say listen to your instincts, because it turns out to be always right. But, do we really listen to it all the time, no not really.

What is the gift you share with everyone you meet? I have been told that I am very approachable. Depending on the person and the place we meet, I like to listen to find out about them and also share my own stories.

How do you prepare yourself before going on stage? I do my vocal warm ups as I put my makeup on. I also pray and take some deep breaths to calm my nerves.

Where can others purchase your music and contact you for interviews and promotions? They can purchase my music on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. They can contact me on my social media sites.

"June 2018 - Sabrina Fallah Interview With Miami Paradise Radio"

Can you tell us something about yourself? My name is Sabrina Fallah and I am from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I love to sing, write songs and play the guitar. On my spare time I love to bake, go shopping and go on walks. I love animals in general and I have been feeding squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and birds in my backyard. I don't feed raccoons, but they have come a few times and stolen the peanuts from the squirrels.

Can your remember the first time you performed in front of a live audience and how did you feel? The first time I performed in front of a live audience I was very nervous and frightened to go on stage. I then faced my fear and performed. I was so happy that I did, because after I sang, I wanted to continue and not get off stage. I knew then that was really what I wanted to do.

Why did you decide to become a rock singer? At the beginning, I was listening to and singing all kinds of music. After my cousin introduced me to Green Day, I then realized that rock was the style of music I wanted to do.

Who are your biggest influences? My biggest influences are Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol.

Which song you have written is your favorite and why? I have written many songs and it is hard for me to choose a favourite. I enjoy singing every one of them.

When you worked with legendary Kent Wells, what was going through your head? I was so happy to get the opportunity to work with such a well known and great producer. I couldn't believe I was actually in the studio where a lot of well known musicians such as Dolly Parton had recorded, like I was in the same booth as them. It was an amazing experience working and recording with Kent.

Performing in Ottawa, Toronto must be very exciting. Do you have any plans on performing in the United States one day? I have performed in the states. While I was in Nashville working on my music, I got the opportunity to perform a couple of times at the Commodore Bar and Grill. It was a songwriters night and I got to sing my own original songs. I certainly hope I get the opportunity to sing in the states again.

On that final note, do you have any advice for the new upcoming generation of artists? When you want something, go for it. Don't let anything or anyone stop you from achieving your dreams. Never give up! - Davindra Bishundeo

Music has always been a part of my life and I always wanted to be involved in it. When I heard Green Day’s “American Idiot” album, they got me to realize I wanted to become a professional rock singer.

5. What motivated you to write Kiss Is a Killer? When I was in Nashville to record my EP, I got the opportunity to co-write with some great songwriters.

10. Do you think you will ever perform in the U.S.A, specifically in my home state of New York? I would love to perform in New York, especially in Times Square. If I get the opportunity, it would be amazing.

11. Last, but not least, do you find it a struggle to advertise and market yourself with all the talent out there in the world? I see a lot of frustration; does it get frustrating for you as well? Since we have social media where we can post our music and videos, it makes it easier for artists to advertise and market their music. It is still tough out there no matter what.

"July 2018 - Sabrina Fallah Interview with Richard MacInnis"

Richard MacInnis here with Volocian Studios – I had the pleasure of interviewing Sabrina Fallah recently to talk about her music. Let’s take a look at how that went!

RM: Where were you born and raised?

SF: I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. This is where I have lived my whole life. I am an only child and music has always been my biggest passion. Ottawa, capital of Canada, is a beautiful city to live in. Canada is an amazing country and anywhere you travel looks different. It is a country that welcomes and celebrates all kinds of cultures, backgrounds and nationalities. There are many languages that are spoken in Canada, but French and English are the two official ones. It is a country that has contributed a lot to the world in many areas like arts and entertainment. To name a few in the music industry, I am sure you have heard of Paul Anka and Alanis Morissette who are actually from Ottawa. There are many other famous musicians like Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Michael Bublé, Avril Lavigne, Hedley, Leonard Cohen, Sarah McLachlan, etc.

RM: How long have you been playing music (and/or singing)?

SF: I have been playing music and singing on stage for over 10 years. I was 10 years old when I started leaning the piano. At 16, I got interested in learning how to play guitar. I rented one for a month. It didn’t take more than two weeks when I decided to buy my own guitar. Guitar is the main instrument that I use to accompany myself on stage and write songs.

RM: Do you use a stage name, or were you born Sabrina Fallah?

SF: My stage name is my birth name. The story behind my name is that my mom liked the main character in the movie “Sabrina”, which Audrey Hepburn played.

RM: How long have you been writing music?

SF: I was very young when I started putting my thoughts on a piece of paper. In grade 4, I began writing short stories and poetry and that led me to song writing.

RM: What made you want to take up playing music, singing, and song writing?

SF: I grew up around music. My cousin Jeff always played guitar and we sang together. He introduced me to a lot of different bands including Green Day. They became the band that got me into rock music and wanting to become a rock singer.

As I was learning how to play the piano, a friend of my mom suggested that I should learn another instrument like the guitar, which would be easier to carry around to perform. As I mentioned earlier, I fell in love with playing guitar soon after renting it.

I have always loved writing and telling stories. One day I decided to try song writing. Then, I added music and sang it. I really enjoyed it. That is how I started writing my own songs and music.

RM: Who are some of the artists that have influenced your sound?

SF: Green Day, Bon Jovi, Billy Idol…

RM: How are your sound or your performances different than the music that you’re inspired by?

SF: Most artists are influenced by other artists, but we all have our own style and it is never a copy. For example, you might hear a bit of Green Day in one of my songs and Bon Jovi in another, but I am never copying the artist.

RM: As a songwriter, what inspires you?

SF: I write about what I go through in my life or what I see others go through. I like to help people through my music. In short, my inspiration is what we go through in life.

RM: What are you listening to right now?

SF: At the moment, I am listening to a lot of Lukas Graham. I love his music and I think he is a great singer/songwriter. I can’t wait for him to release his new record.

RM: What’s next for your music career?

SF: I am writing new songs and hope to record and release a new album in the future.

RM: Where can people find out more about you?

SF: They can go to my official website and also go to my social media sites.

"August 2018 - Sabrina Fallah"

We got a chance to listen to Sabrina Fallah. She has the whole package when it comes to talent in the musical world. She writes and composes and sings. She has her own sound and yet sort of reminded me a little of one of my favorites Pat Benatar from the 1980's, but definitely has her own voice. She has been performing as a solo artist on stage for over 10 years. She also has been in bands, but has mostly perform solo. She has performed both ways and loved both. She is one of those artists who just in so in sync with the music and audience, not to mention her listeners.

What make's her different? Sabrina's just herself. In fact in her own words she said "She does not feel the need to try to be someone else. I wanted to be different and when I heard Green Day's "American Idiot" album, it made me want to become a rock singer." Sabrina is an entertainer who has fun with her audience, she wants them to have fun and enjoy themselves. She is lively and charismatic and full of energy, whether you see her live or just kick back to her music you can feel her energy.

Sabrina writes her music, but does like to collaborate with other songwriters as well. We asked her what inspires her when it come's to writing a song and she explained "I write about what I go through in my life or what I see others go through. I like to help people through my music. In short, my inspiration is what we go through in life." When you come to her shows you won't get elaborate light shows and lasers beaming out of the sky, but you will get an amazing time watching and listening to her perform. What you will see is Sabrina performing solo at her shows. She mainly play's rock, all her own original and cover songs, as she play's on acoustic guitar.

We asked Sabrina what were her biggest influences in music she said "I have been around music since I was a child. My cousin Jeff was also in music. He used to have his own band. Whenever we see saw each other we would jam on guitar and sing together. He introduced me to a lot of different bands and Green Day was one of them. He also has a home studio, which I used to record in when I was younger back in the Myspace days." Now Sabrina can inspire people and has many of her fans. Being a musical artist has its moments and it's struggles, so I asked Sabrina what have been some of hers. "Being a solo artist, I am doing everything on my own, for example booking my shows, preparing for the show, choosing the songs, etc. I am used to doing things on my own, so although it is a lot of work, I don't mind it." I asked her what she thought were the struggles for most bands today and she stated "I think bands now a days struggle more getting paid at their gigs, than getting a show booked. Most venues/bars don't want to pay the band, they want you to have a support jar on stage for money or they give you a free drink or a meal."

What advice did she have for bands trying to get themselves out there and she said "To get yourself heard you need to do a lot of performances and be on all social media outlets like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Snap chat, etc. Keep writing, recording and releasing new music." She also said "Believe in yourself and do what you love to do. Don't let anyone say you can't do it, because you can. Never give up!" We at the Coven know a lot about the history of music and the efforts that went into getting a recording made, let alone be heard, so we often ask our artists what they think about the way things were recorded now VS before. Sabrina answered "Like the old style of recording and that is basically how I do it. However, sometimes we have to move forward and follow the changes and advancements in the music industry. Even the recording studios have to incorporate new technology to keep up to date with the needs and preferences of the music industry." Some of the other things that we have talked with many people in the music industry is pirated music has been around for a while especially since Napster and other illegal down music down load sites. However, there are so many views and opinions and we asked Sabrina what she thought about it. "I strongly believe that free downloading hurts the artists. As an artist, we work very hard to create and record the music. Being a musician isn't cheap either, for example it costs a lot of money to get proper equipment, to record, etc. No one should be downloading music for free, but people do and that is how artists loose money. Everyone should support the artists, especially ones who are independent. "

I DJ Savage myself think that today with all the avenues of getting music it is almost impossible for newer bands to make it off of just their music. People are not buying as many CD's as they are downloading. It is very easy to steal music you can grab a YouTube link and put in to a converter for mp3 and there you go a free song and no charge for the download. Sabrina's music can be found in the links below and I hope you'll invest in buying some of her music as she puts all of herself into her music. She has fun performing at all of the venues she's performed at and just has a good time with everyone in the crowd and she leaves no one out making the experience wonderful even with those in the back more, because she has great eye contact and expression and she makes sure everyone is apart of the musical experience.

There is so much about Sabrina that a small web page couldn't begin to express how down to earth she is. She is kind to her followers and very up beat and has a lot of music that everyone can relate to. We are winding down in the interview. However, it's just the beginning of Sabrina Fallah, so keep a watchful eye on her. Check her links out, you be the judge, I know you'll love her. - The Coven Radio

"August 2018 - Sabrina Fallah's Interview with Cynthia Kuerschner"

How do you like living in Canada? In my view, Canada is a beautiful and amazing country. Anywhere you travel it looks different. It is a country that welcomes and celebrates all kinds of cultures, backgrounds and nationalities. People in Canada are very friendly and welcoming. The winters are long and cold, but if you like doing winter sports, it feels shorter, not so long.

How long have you been doing music? I have been playing music and singing on stage for over 10 years. I was 10 years old when I started leaning the piano. At 16, I got interested in learning how to play the guitar. I rented one for a month. It didn’t take more than two weeks when I decided to buy my own guitar. Guitar is the main instrument that I use to accompany myself on stage and write songs.

What age did you write your first song? What was it called? I don’t remember exactly how old I was, but I am sure the first song I ever wrote was called “Crush”.

I love the song Kiss Is a Killer. Is there a meaning behind the song? I co-wrote this song in Nashville, Tennessee with a songwriter. He came up with the song title, which when I heard it, I knew it was going to be the title of the EP and the single for the record. How the song idea came about was I thought about Grease, you know the guys with the leather pants, leather jackets, trying to be cool to get the girls. You know like bad boys, but not the mean bad boys, the cool bad boys. The boys who gets the girl and gives the best kisses ever. I thought that was a cool idea and we went along with it.

Who is your favourite artist? Green Day

Who were some of your influences in music? I love a lot of bands like Michelle Branch, Avril Lavigne, Hedley, Simple Plan, Kelly Clarkson, Lukas Graham, but my main influences are Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol.

What do you like to do when you are not performing? I love nature. I love sitting in my backyard and watch the birds and the little animals like rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks. I have even seen raccoons and groundhogs come by. I really enjoy feeding them. There is a chipmunk in my backyard that follows me around for food. He is so sweet and gentle when he eats the peanuts from my hand. I have even touched him and he is so soft. There is also a very friendly black squirrel, which I call Blacky that comes right up to me for food. He is very comfortable around me.

Do you have any pets? I wish. I would have loved to have a dog or a car or both, but unfortunately I am allergic.

When did the band get together? How many members in band? I have been in and out of bands, but I am actually a solo artist.

What was your most embarrassing moment while performing? The most embarrassing moment while performing on stage, was tripping over my guitar cable and almost falling backwards.

If you weren't an artist, what type of job would you have been doing? I would have probably been a race car driver or help the animals in the wild, because I love nature.

How has music changed since you started? The music industry has changed a lot. I love how everything is online now and we can make social media accounts to share our music to a bigger audience.

What are some bands or songs that are your guilty pleasures? I truly enjoy all kinds of music and bands.

Where can people find out more about you? They can go to my official website and also go to my social media sites.

SF: "My genre of music is rock."

CB: "What inspired you to make music?
SF: "When I was young, I started writing stories and poetry, which lead me to song writing. Then I started learning the piano and then guitar came soon after that. My parents and my cousin Jeff played a very important role in encouraging me to follow my dreams. Music has always been a part of my life and I always wanted to be involved in it. When I heard Green Day’s “American Idiot” album, they got me to realize I wanted to become a professional rock singer."

CB: "Who are your major influences?"
SF: "My major influences are Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol."

CB: "Have you worked with any major artists or producers?"

CB "Could you briefly describe the music-making process?"
SF: "I normally start with a song idea, but at times I have the music first and then I think about the lyrics. I always have my guitar beside me, so I can start strumming to get a melody going.

CB: "What has been your biggest challenge as an artist?"
SF: "I think my biggest challenge as an artist is being a female rock singer. Being a female rock singer in the music business hasn’t been an easy road for me. I have had people try to change me into a pop singer, but I didn’t let them. I fought for what I wanted to be and that is how it will always be."

CB: "Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?"
SF: "I think I have. I have been able to stay true to myself and to the style of music that I have always wanted to do. I kept pushing for my music to be heard."

CB: "What advice do you have for people who want to be a performer?"
SF: "In life you should do what you love, what your heart tells you. Don’t listen to people who say you can’t do it, because you can. There will be days that will be tough, but you have to get back up and do it. Go for your dream!!! Never give up!!!"

CB: "How can fans-to-be gain access to your music?"
SF: "They can go to my social media sites, which are listed down below. They can purchase my music on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc."

"September 2018 - Sabrina Fallah; Hurt is our latest Music Review from the Ghostly Beard"

When rockers get acoustic and fragile, it can lead to some of their best songs. Here in this EP for example, while the featured song “Kiss Is a Killer” is a straight rock anthem that is Sabrina’s usual style, it is the stripped-down EP opener “Hurt” that got my attention.

With a simple bed of 2 acoustic guitars so well recorded that their warmth feels like the killer kiss of that EP name, this song gives Sabrina’s voice more space to emote and evoke the hurtful feelings everyone has once experienced from a breakout in a way that is compelling and convincing. It helps that the melody (which doesn’t sound like misery – as the lyrics cleverly says) is simple and heartfelt. It could have been arranged as another mid-tempo rocker, with drums/bass and electric guitars, but thankfully the production of this one was kept to a minimum and feels just right as-is, with no extra frills that would detract from the message. It’s a plea that works really well in its deceptive simplicity.

All in all, it’s a great intro to more standard rocking songs that leads you nicely into the singer songwriter’s universe, in a way that shows a depth and feel that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. Well done! - Ghostly Beard


"December 2018 - ROCK ON! This Week's Sound Bites...12/27/18"

Sabrina Fallah is an indie recording artist from Ottawa, Ontario Canada who has worked with producers such as Stuart ("Boogie with Stu") Epps, Chris Birkett and Kent Wells who has recently she released her next round of music, an EP titled, "Kiss Is a Killer."

A neat little five song collection of diversity wrapped in a power pop package of rock infused melodies linked together by one common thread; her interesting yet steady voice.

"Kiss Is a Killer," the title track occupies the opening slot. Starting off with guitar then joined by a slow steady drum beat which gives this tune its grit; this is where the vocal gets interesting. Fallah seems to cover a spectrum of emotions from, tough to seductive yet vengeful and submissive ("I'm Tokyo to your Godzilla") as she runs an aural gamut throughout this number. The vocal seems much enunciated at times, almost perfectly stated and then at others she really lets go, giving this track a different feel around every groove. There's a sweet little breakdown after a nice guitar interlude which then explodes back into the chorus. A well placed and nicely constructed piece.

"Stuck Up," is a cut that is very reminiscent of 80's or 90's pop; think Tiffany meets any Nickelodeon Cartoon Network theme song and you'll get a grasp of this one. Upbeat and vocally on point, this one has your toes tapping from start to finish and recalls images of anklet socks and lace finger-less gloves; an overall fun ditty.

"Didn't Last" is the third track and it doesn't take long to switch gears from a semi-haunting intro with tribal drum rhythms and Fallah begging to be set free ("Release me...") to a hard driving rock beat which morphs into a searing guitar solo and back down in a dynamic shift akin to a bump in the road before taking back off and reaching its end. Well done tune and a nice attention grabber due to its edginess.

"Paradise Comes With a Price" showcases Fallah's solo acoustic side and this song, although very catchy seems to challenge her vocally a bit as it appears at first listen that she is searching for a certain mark that eludes her. Regardless of the vocal, the song itself shows her ability to kick it up a notch acoustically which is a nice change of pace and serves as a bridge to the final offering.

The fifth and final tune is, "Hurt" and it is a total reversal from the power of the previous tracks. This is all Fallah as she shows a bit of vulnerability in this stripped down acoustic track highlighting her skill as a lyricist; a nice change of pace that fits perfectly in the fifth position on the disc; a great way to close the EP.

"Kiss Is a Killer" is an upbeat EP with many positives and an overall pop rock sound that would fit well in many a record collection and can be found along with more information about Sabrina Fallah at www.sabrinafallah.com

That's it for this week! Please continue to support live and original music and until next week....ROCK ON! - Danny Coleman

"March 2019 - Catching Up With Indie Rock Artist Sabrina Fallah"

Rock artist Sabrina Fallah was inspired to become a rock singer by Green Day, one of her favorite bands she grew up listening to. Hailing from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Sabrina began playing the guitar at age 14 and was hooked. The singer-songwriter would go on to study the vocal styles of Green Day, Jon Bon Jovi, and Billy Idol because they matched her own deep, raspy voice. Additionally, Sabrina worked with a vocal coach to achieve her rock vocal style.

She has made a name for herself by performing where ever possible over the years. She plays extensively in Central Canada and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada but has entertained audiences at various Canadian and international venues and festivals, including Nashville’s Commodore Bar and Grill, and Holetown Festival in Barbados. Sabrina has also performed at charity events.

Sabrina has worked with some renown producers such as Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zepplin) with whom she recorded her self-titled 2012 EP, and with veteran producer Kent Wells for her 2016 EP, “Kiss is a Killer.” Her single “The Frontline” was produced in 2015 by award-winning producer Chris Birkett (Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones). Birkett also offered Sabrina the opportunity to record the song “Everything” written by him and his daughter. As a result, the song became the bonus track on Sabrina’s 2019 self-titled compilation album.

This year, Sabrina is busy with writing new songs, working on a theme for a new record, and booking upcoming shows. I recently caught up with her via email about the new album, the bonus track, working with notable producers, Freida the cat, production processes, and much more.

1. Congratulations on your new self-titled compilation album, "Sabrina Fallah". Tell us about the album. Why did you decide to make this type of album? My label Dance Plant Records wanted to re-release all of my previous releases and add a new track into one album, distributing it through The Orchard on iTunes. There are 12 tracks on the compilation CD, which are “All Or Nothing”, “One Chance”, “Break Through”, “Ask”, “Sorry”, “The Frontline”, “Kiss Is a Killer”, “Stuck Up”, “Didn’t Last”, “Paradise Comes With a Price”, “Hurt” and “Everything”.

2. Who helped you to produce the album? What was that experience like? Would you work with them again? My compilation CD has all of my previous releases with one new track called “Everything”. I worked with producer Stuart Epps, Chris Birkett and Kent Wells. I enjoyed working with all of them and learned a lot from them. I would definitely work with them again.

3. Explain your production process. My compilation CD has all of my previous releases in it and my songs were actually recorded at different times, in different studios and with different producers.

My self-titled “Sabrina Fallah” EP was recorded in 2011 with Stuart Epps in England.

My single “The Frontline” and "Everything" was recorded in 2015 with Chris Birkett in Toronto, Ontario.

My “Kiss Is a Killer” EP was recorded in 2016 with Kent Wells in Nashville, Tennessee.

All the songs on the album were co-written with other songwriters except for the song "Everything". Chris Birkett and his daughter May actually wrote "Everything". Chris gave me the opportunity to record it and then I got to release it on iTunes.

In my self-titled "Sabrina Fallah" EP I used session players in the studio to record my songs and Stuart Epps also sang back up in some of the songs. In my "Kiss Is a Killer EP" I also used session players in the studio, however, Kent Wells played on both of the acoustic tracks for "Paradise Comes With a Price", and "Hurt". For my single "The Frontline" and "Everything", Chris Birkett the producer actually played all the instruments in the recordings in the studio.

4. There is a bonus track, “Everything”, on the album. What is the concept/theme of the song? Will it be released as a single? Why was it a bonus track? "Everything" is a teenage anxiety song. Soul searching. Wondering who you are. Keeping a brave face when inside you are falling apart. I don’t think this song will be released as a single. My label wanted to put out a compilation CD, and at the same time to have a new song added to it.

5. In our last interview, you cited Kent Wells who produced your “Kiss Is a Killer” EP, for teaching you a lot vocally, which you use when recording and performing. Explain what he taught you and how you use it when you record and perform. It is very hard to explain exactly what he taught, because when you are in the studio, you follow what the producer is telling you to do. He was paying very much attention to the voice and reminding me to put the emphasis where it is supposed to be.

6. Congratulations on your new record label. Tell us more about it and how this opportunity came about. I received a message on LinkedIn from someone in the music industry who showed interest in my music. He told me about Dance Plant Records in Montreal and advised me to contact them. So, when I contacted the label there was some interest. After a few discussions, we decided to work together. I am very happy to have a team of people who support and believe in me and in the music that I create.

7. Your single, “Kiss Is a Killer”, recently won the #1 spot in the ISR Rock 21 competition on Indie Star Radio by listeners. How did that make you feel? We had to get people to vote for our song and I worked very hard by promoting it to get as many votes as I could. I couldn’t believe when I found out that I had actually won. I was shocked and very happy of the result. I love my supporters and appreciate their love and support for my music.

8. On Twitter, you share videos of your visits with an adorable cat named Freida. Tell us more about Freida. How did you meet her? Why is she special to you? Freida is my neighbour's cat and when they are away or on a trip, they ask me to take care of her. I remember the very first time I met Freida, she jumped up on me and would cling around me. I felt that she liked and trusted me from the beginning. She is very special to me, I am like her second mom. Leslie her owner lets me visit Freida every couple of weeks. When I am there I get spoiled and treated very well. Leslie makes the best coffee ever and very delicious flavoured scones. I try to show off my baking skills as well, so I usually bake muffins, cookies, cakes, etc. and take to them. This has become something we really enjoy doing, we have very nice conversations while sampling the goodies and having fun with Freida as well.

9. What advice do you wish you’d received when you were first starting out in the music business? I wish I was told how hard it really was to make it in the music industry. At the age of 14 when I started, I never thought about how much hard work I had to do to get to where I am today.

10. In what ways do you think women can be better supported in the Indie music industry? I think indie music industry is more open to all types of artists and music. They allow their artists to be more creative. As a female rock singer, I have faced both positive and negative views regarding my genre of music. Luckily, I have had people and professionals, like producers, that have actually encouraged me to pursue the style of music that I love to do.

11. What new projects are you working on for 2019? At this moment, I am writing new songs, thinking about a theme for my next record.

12. What are your performance/show/tour plans for 2019? I am booking shows and when I have all the information, like dates and location, they will be posted on my social media.

Thank you, Sabrina, for the opportunity to interview you.

SABRINA FALLAH: I have been feeding the squirrels in my backyard for over 3 years now. I didn't raise them; they were just in my yard. Their names are Greyster, Blacky, Brownie, Skittles, Fluffy, Crunchy, and Spotty. I do have more squirrels than that, but those are the names of some of them. Blacky and Greyster are the squirrels who come up to me, Blacky was the first one, but Greyster loves to climb on my leg and back. I also feed the chipmunks. I have a family of chipmunks who live in my backyard. One day I saw a baby chipmunk on the grass without its mom and I picked it up and now I am feeding it. It is amazing how they remember the ones who helped them and who are nice to them.

ARTIST’S HOUSE: Is there anyone special in your heart right now?

SABRINA FALLAH: At the moment, I am focusing on my music and when it is time for me to find that special someone it will happen.

SABRINA FALLAH: If you open my fridge you would find meat, veggies, fruits, juice, soft drinks, etc. I also like snacking on sweets and chocolates when I can. When I am performing or recording I am very careful with what I eat or drink, for example I stay away from dairy products.

ARTIST’S HOUSE: Tell us a funny story that happened recently.

SABRINA FALLAH: I think the funniest thing that happened recently was when I went outside, both my grey squirrel and baby chipmunk jumped on me for food. It was so funny when it happened, because I didn't expect it. I feel so loved by them.

ARTIST’S HOUSE: If you were to spend a day with one of your fans, where would you go? What would you do?

SABRINA FALLAH: I would of course do something that they would also be interested in. I love going to amusement parks and riding the roller coasters; that would be a fun thing to do. Also, we could go somewhere that we can sit and talk and get to know each other, like having a coffee or grabbing a bite to eat.

ARTIST’S HOUSE: What do you think about the current popular artists of today? Do you have a favorite?

SABRINA FALLAH: What attracts me to some of the current artists is the style of music. My favourite current artist of today is Lukas Graham and his music is very different.

ARTIST’S HOUSE: Is there anything else you’d like to say?

SABRINA FALLAH: Never give up on what you love to do!!! - Lady Luiza


"August 2019 - Rocker Sabrina Fallah Shows a Softer Side with “Hurt”"

Sabrina Fallah first sent her music in to Indie Star Radio in the form of a track called Kiss is a Killer, a hard rocking banger that unapologetically paints Sabrina as a woman who knows that she wants and takes it for herself! However, her most recent track entitled “Hurt” is a tale of what happens when the bad ass girl gets her heart broken, and the results are wrenching.

A slow guitar, reminiscent of Extreme’s “More Than Words” is accompanied by a slightly subdued Sabrina singing of the pain endured from lost love. Her voice is soft, yet powerful in expressing her feelings, and the bare backing of just a single guitar really emphasizes the emptiness she portrays with her lyrics. Sabrina seems to rue the day she ever let someone inside her leather clad veneer, proclaiming “Hurt” as that four letter word, being the only one that affects her so deeply.

Every rocker has a heart. They are not immune to the issues of heartbreak and loss. Sabrina Fallah sums this up perfectly with “Hurt”. There is a vulnerability there which makes one appreciate her normal kick ass sound even more, and proves that Sabrina Fallah is not just a one trick pony, but a talented artist with a great voice and yes, a softer side. - Alan Wayne


"Sept 2019 - Sabrina Fallah: How She Overcame Her Biggest Challenge"

Rock artist Sabrina Fallah was inspired to become a rock singer by Green Day, one of her favorite bands she grew up listening to. Hailing from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Sabrina began playing the guitar at age 14 and was hooked. The singer-songwriter would go on to study the vocal styles of Green Day, Jon Bon Jovi, and Billy Idol because they matched her own deep, raspy voice. Additionally, Sabrina would go on to work with a vocal coach to achieve her rock vocal style.

She has made a name for herself by performing where ever possible over the years, playing extensively in Central Canada and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. However, Sabrina has also entertained audiences at various Canadian and international venues and festivals, including Nashville’s Commodore Bar and Grill, and Holetown Festival in Barbados, and performed at charity events.

Sabrina has worked with renown producers Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zepplin) with whom she recorded her self-titled 2012 EP, as well as with veteran producer Kent Wells for her EP, “Kiss is a Killer.” Award-winning producer Chris Birkett (Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones) recorded her 2015 single, “Frontline”. Sabrina was offered the opportunity to record the song “Everything” written by Birkett and his daughter and it would end up as the bonus track on her 2019 self-titled compilation album.

Learn more about Sabrina’s musical journey our previous in-depth interview with her.

In this lightning round of questions, Sabrina tells us about her biggest challenge as an artist, her favorite microphone, how she defines success as an indie artist, and more.

What iconic artist in music is your hero or who you’d like to be like and why?

Billie Joe Armstrong, the lead singer of the band Green Day is my hero. My cousin Jeff introduced me to their music and when I heard their “American Idiot” album, it got me into becoming a rock singer. That album helped me figure out the sound and style of music I wanted to do.

Tell us about the biggest challenge you’ve had in your music career so far and how you overcame it?

As an artist, I have had many challenges. One major challenge has been to build up confidence in myself and getting over my shyness. I overcame these challenges by believing in myself and pushing myself to perform more and more in front of people.

What’s your favorite microphone to perform with and why?

The microphone that I use is an SM58, which in my opinion is a very good vocal microphone. It fits my voice very well.

How do you define success as an indie artist?

To me, success is every step that you take in achieving your goals and getting to your dream.

What’s your favorite playlist and why?

I don’t really have a playlist. When I listen to music, I just listen to the album of the artist all the way through.

What does it mean to you to be an indie music woman artist?

I love being a part of it and enjoy the support I am getting with my music.

What is your favorite instrument to play and why?

My favourite instrument would have to be the guitar because I use it to write my songs and I also perform with it.
In our previous interview, you said you were writing new songs and thinking about a theme for your next record. Have you decided on a theme and if so, can you tell us what it is? When do you think the record will be out?

I have decided on a few themes, but I can’t mention it at this very moment. Also, when I get to the point of being in the studio, everyone will know and that is when I will know more about when my record will be released. - Linda Garnett


"We Will Chat With A Talented Singer from North of The Border - November 2019"

This weekend, we will introduce you to a talented singer and song writer from Ottawa, Canada. Sabrina Fallah joins Ron Carson on the WSBS Saturday Morning Chat immediately following The Trading Post as she has been described as a natural on stage with polished vocals and has made a name of herself by performing wherever possible over the years. Sabrina can also play a mean guitar entertaining audiences nationwide and judging from our featured image photo, people have compared her to fellow rocker Joan Jett.

Besides Joan Jett, some of her other musical influences include Green Day, Bon Jovi and Billy Idol as some of those musical selections feature the influence of her mentors which have also been incorporated as part of a unique blend of style. She performs widely in her home land as future concerts down state are in the planning stage and we certainly hope Sabrina can grace us with her dynamic presence here in the immediate tri-state region of Western Massachusetts, Northwestern Connecticut and Eastern New York. We'll truly keep you posted if anything develops.

Sabrina's first EP was recorded across the pond in England as producer Stuart Epps has an impressive resume working with such legends as Sir Elton John and Led Zeppelin to name a few. This compilation was released as her self-titled EP on I-Tunes. Included in this collection is a song entitled "Frontline" which we will preview prior to our interview on Saturday. The video is available for viewing on-line as Chris Birkett produced the clip. He has also worked with notable performers including Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones, Buffy Saint Marie and Sinead O' Connor. Afterwards, we'll sample a song entitled "Hurt" where our LIVE guest shows off her savvy in working a ballad that mesmerizes audiences during her live shows.

In 2016, Sabrina even made a trip to Nashville, Tennessee where she had some opportunities to co-write music with several song writers and recorded material with veteran producer Kent Wells. A pair of acoustic videos and two tracks from her EP were recorded including the single "Kiss Is A Killer". You can view her work by logging on here. Sabrina is also on various social media platform including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, My Space, Soundcloud and Snapchat.

We are so pleased to spotlight Sabrina this weekend. Tune in to 860 AM and 94.1 FM at 10:05 am this Saturday. You can also listen by logging on to our web site and from there you can also access the chat on Google Home and Amazon Alexa enabled devices.

"November 2019 - AN INTERVIEW WITH SABRINA FALLAH 3: WSBS Radio & more"

1. Sabrina, this is our 3rd interview. A bit has probably changed since the last one. Can you tell us what’s new? The biggest things that have changed are that I finally got my music spinning on FM college/university radio stations and having my first mainstream radio interview on WSBS radio.

2. We know you were recently interviewed by a major FM radio. Can you tell us more about that? I got the opportunity to be interviewed on WSBS Radio based in Massachusetts in the United States on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019. Ron Carson interviewed me on the air and also included my songs "The Frontline and "Hurt" to be played. It was my first big FM radio interview and I was very excited for it. To this day, I still can't believe I got to my goal of being on mainstream radio.

Ron Carson wrote a blog post about me on WSBS Radio (860 AM and 94.1 FM) website the day before my interview, "We Will Chat With A Talented Singer from North of The Border" https://wsbs.com/we-will-chat-with-a-talented-singer-from-north-of-the-border/ . You can also listen to the full radio interview on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dI06ckjsh-g .

3. How did you prepare for it? Were you nervous? Honestly, before an interview I listen to Green Day to relax and get my mind ready for it. I am just be myself and go along with it. Also, I feel that being a bit nervous is good for me, it makes me do things a lot better.

4. Besides Joan Jett, are there any other singers you would compare your singing to? What’s unique about your own voice and style to you? I have been told that I sound like Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, the Cramberries and Melissa Ethridge. I love that I have my own vocal style with rasp and edge, which I add in when I sing.

5. Do you prefer upbeat or softer songs more? I love both upbeat and softer songs, both are wonderful to listen to.

6. Do you recommend other artists use LinkedIn to get discovered too? What’s the best social media for an artist to promote themselves at? Honestly, I was shocked that I was discovered on LindkedIn. I never thought that would be the site I would have gotten noticed on. All artists should be on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Soundcloud, ReverbNation, any social media possible.

7. How was it like at the beginning of being discovered? What steps did you take at first to get where you are today? When I got discovered I was very happy, because I wanted to get noticed in the music industry and I knew how hard it was to get there. I worked very hard to get where I am today. I performed a lot, wrote a lot of music, recorded, released music, pushed my music to online and college/university radio stations, joined all the social media outlets and kept them updated day to day. I just kept on pushing myself to get my music heard.

8. You said you tried to perform your music everywhere you could. What was the funniest place or event you performed at? I don't think I performed at anywhere funny, but I love everywhere I have performed.

9. Which song was your favorite song to perform back then? What’s your current favorite song to perform? When I first started to perform, in addition to my own original songs, I performed "Nobody's Home" by Avril Lavigne a lot. My current favourite song to perform would be "In These Arms" by Bon Jovi. I also have to include "Good Riddance" by Green Day.

10. What are the best top 3 songs on your compilation CD, in your opinion? That is a very hard question for me to answer. I love all of my songs.

11. Who designed your website? No one specific, various people like family and friends helped out.

12. What do you do before your concerts? How do you prepare to “rock the house”? Before my shows, I warm up my vocals, then I listen to a lot of Green Day to relax.

13. How was it like growing up in Canada for you? I love being from Canada. It is a beautiful country. We have all 4 seasons, but winter is the longest and very cold. Also, if I may say so, Canadians are very kind and friendly people.

14. Any news on when an American tour will start? Are there any specific venues you’d want to perform at, whether right now or in the future? I would love to tour America, it would be so much fun. I would perform anywhere I get the opportunity to.

15. What kind of hairstyle do you like and would like to get on yourself? I used to have short spiky hair like Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day. I would definitely get that hair style again.

16. Which Bon Jovi songs would you like to cover? Will you do a studio version of those covers? I do cover Bon Jovi songs. I would love to do a studio version of "In These Arms".

17. What songs would you like to perform at the WSBS studio when you visit? I would perform any songs that they would love me to sing for them.

18. How difficult or easy is it to get radio interviews? It can be very difficult, but if you have done a lot, it will be easier to get them, especially on online radio stations. To get on mainstream radio is a lot harder, but if you keep going and push harder, it can happen.

19. Do you plan to do more radio interviews like this in the future? I would love and look forward to having more mainstream radio interviews in the future.

20. Any other radio stations you’d like to be interviewed by? I would love to get interviewed by any radio stations who would like to interview me.

21. What are your favorite colors? My favourite colours are green, purple, blue, black and silver.

22. What are some songs that would be on your high school playlist? The bands I was listening to in high school were, Michelle Branch, Green Day, Simple Plan, Avril Lavigne, Saves The Day, Good Charlotte, Jojo, Hedley, Evanescence, etc.

23. How do you pronounce “gif”? giffff

24. Do you have a friendly relationship with the virtual assistant in your phone (Siri, Alexa, etc)? Yes, I am very nice to Siri.

25. What do you usually crave for breakfast? If I could have pancakes everyday I would.

26. How important is love for you? I believe love is very important in life. Love could be the feelings you have for your family, friends, pets, or the person you are with. Love is a good thing in life, but of course it can also hurt.

27. Are there any instruments you wish to learn? I would love to learn how to play the drums.

28. Do you prefer a more simple and laid-back or more crazy and fast-paced life? Why? It doesn't really matter, as long as I stay busy I will be happy.

29. What would you like to say to anyone who is reading this interview right now? Thank you for taking the time to read my interview in Artist's House. Just remember, never ever give up on your dreams! - Sara Virginia Silaj

"February 2020 - SABRINA FALLAH – Rock And Much More – Exclusive Interview!"

1 – Hi Sabrina, it is a big pleasure to have you here at Planet Singer. Tell us how did you discover your musical talent?

I was told that before I could speak I was humming tunes. Then around grade 4, I started writing poetry and short stories, which then lead me to song writing. At the age of ten, I started learning the piano. At the age of 14, I won my first singing competition, by singing "One Day" by Simple Plan, which got me to realize that I wanted to become a professional singer. When I was 15 or 16, I grabbed my first guitar. When I heard the "American Idiot" album by Green Day, that was when I knew I wanted to become a rock singer.

2 – Your sound is very Rock oriented, what are your biggest influences?

Green Day is my biggest influence. They are the reason that I am a rock singer, loving what I do.

3 – You play the guitar like it is an extension of your body, when did you start playing this instrument?

Before I started learning the guitar, I was playing piano. I was then told by a friend that I should learn the guitar, because it would be easier for me to carry around than the keyboard. At the age of 15 or 16, I rented a guitar and took a couple of lessons to see how it was to play and if I liked it. I instantly got hooked to it that I went to buy a guitar after two weeks. I got a blue Yamaha acoustic and then a few years later a blue electric Fender Stratocaster.

4 – Planet Singer is also a site dedicated to singing technique, what is your relationship with your voice? Are you a natural singer or did you study with a vocal coach?

I was born as a natural singer. At the age of 14 when I started to pursue my music, I didn't really have a vocal coach, I just sang everyday for hours. One day my grandmother saw Elaine Overholt, who is a well-known vocal coach in Toronto, Ontario, on Ellen DeGeneres and told me about her. I was 18 then and I decided that maybe I should get a vocal coach, so I went to see Elaine. I was very happy that I did. I had no idea how much I needed to know about warming up the voice before singing and taking care of my vocal chords. When I saw Elaine she was in a way surprised that I sang for so many years without hurting my vocals. She helped me with my vocal techniques, warmups, body movements and more.

As my singing voice was very clean sounding, Elaine referred me to one of her other vocal coaches who taught me how to pronounce words the way a rock singer should with attitude. He also made sure my rasp was done the right way, so I didn't hurt my vocals.

5 – You have an intense live presence. What are your favorite songs to perform on stage?

I love playing my original songs, but I also include a few cover tunes. I usually sing songs that I can relate to.

6 – What is the story behind your song “The Frontline”?

My song "The Frontline" is about going for your dream and not letting anyone get in the way of it.

7 – Are you on tour right now?

At the moment, I am doing a lot of radio interviews and writing new songs.

8 – Your song “Hurt” is very intense can you tell us more about this track?

“Hurt” is about friends you trusted that never supported you in what you love to do and were never there for you, all they cared about was themselves.

9 – Your CD “Sabrina Fallah” is clearly very personal. If you could pick one song from the track list that represent you the most, which one would you choose?

Oh, that is a hard question to answer, because I write all my songs about what I have been through and what I see others go through. I truly love all of my songs.

10 - What are your plans for the future?

Keep on doing radio interviews, release new music and perform.

11 – Sabrina, it was a pleasure to have this chat with you today, we really wish you all the best for your music! (feel free to add your last thoughts for our audience)

I would like to thank all those who have supported me throughout my music career and have helped me to get to where I am today. In November 2019, I got a big opportunity to be interviewed by Ron Carson on WSBS Radio (860 AM and 94.1 FM), who also wrote a blog post about me "We Will Chat With A Talented Singer from North of The Border" on their website. During our interview he played my songs "The Frontline" and 'Hurt".

In January 2020, Ron Carson replayed our interview and followed with another blog "Catching Up With Sabrina Fallah". My songs, especially "Hurt" started buzzing and catching the listeners' attention and requests for replay started coming in.

I am really excited about the attention that my songs are getting and grateful for the chance and opportunity that Ron and Jesse have given me.

You can hear the interview on my YouTube channel (thefallah) and read the blog posts on my website http://sabrinafallah.com/

If you would like to request "Hurt" or "The Frontline" on WSBS Radio please call during the lunch hour 413-528-0860 - Nicola Seda
