I started making TikToks summer of 2019 and would mainly be posting dance videos along with my friends. I started to gain a lot of attention towards the beginning of the 2019-20 school year and had got my following up to about 50k. Once I had a footing on the platform things started to expand quickly and I built up a large following over over 2.2 million after a few of my video went crazy viral!

I was a little girl with a big dream, after watching Whitney Houston sing “I Will Always Love You” on TV. I then started writing songs as soon as I could! I didn’t know that I could turn those songs into records until I accidentally met a young producer in LA on vacation when I was a teenager. We worked back and forth from Mississauga and LA via the internet for the next seven years. I was honing my songwriting and recording skills at that time. Until I realized I knew nothing about the business of music, which is when I decided to enroll into Metalworks Institute for the Entertainment Business Management program! After graduating, I decided I wanted to be an artist, as well as a songwriter and then went for it. It has been a lot of hard work, education, perfecting my skills and gaining resilience.

Since I was very young, all I wanted was to be in music. My parents told me I was humming tunes as a baby before I could even speak. When I was 6 or 7, I started writing poetry and short stories, which then lead me to songwriting. At the age of 10, I started taking piano lessons and at 15 or 16, I started learning guitar. I won my first singing competition at 14 performing “One Day” by Simple Plan and that was when I knew I wanted to become a professional singer. My cousin introduced me to Green Day’s music and when I heard their “American Idiot” album, I then realized I wanted to be a rock singer.
In 2011, I recorded my first self-titled EP “Sabrina Fallah” with producer Stuart Epps in England, which was released April 1th, 2012. I later on worked with producer Chris Birkett in Toronto and recorded a few songs, which two of them have been released, “The Frontline” and “Everything”. In February 2016, I had the opportunity to go to Nashville where I co-wrote new songs and recorded my music with producer Kent Wells.
In January 2019, I released my compilation CD “Sabrina Fallah” with a bonus new track called “Everything” with my label Dance Plant Records distributed by The Orchard on iTunes. The tracks on it 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”.
After a whole year trying to get my music on mainstream radios, I finally achieved my goal. In November 2019, Ron Carson on WSBS Radio (860 AM and 94.1 FM) interviewed me and played two of my songs, “The Frontline” and “Hurt” live on air. He also wrote a beautiful blog post about me the night before the interview.
A few months after this interview, Ron aired it again and that was when the listeners started calling into the station to request my songs. This helped me a lot, because I needed one person to take a chance on me and Ron believed in me and gave me that opportunity. After that, I have been getting featured and in rotation on mainstream radio stations in Canada, the United States and Brazil.
I have also been interviewed and played on online stations and college radios worldwide. Continue Reading Meet Sabrina Fallah
