Meet Sabrina Fallah
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.
Being a rock singer in the music industry today can be very hard, especially when some people don’t believe that females can sing rock. I even had problems putting a band together or join one, because they didn’t believe I could sing rock. They assumed I couldn’t sing it, before they even heard my music. I even had a producer that wanted to change me to pop and I refused and walked away. I am very happy that I was strong enough to believe in myself and my music and never let anyone to make me doubt myself and to change me to someone that I am not.
As you know, some of the female rock singers like Pat Benatar and Joan Jett experienced difficulties at the beginning of their careers, but they persevered and became very successful.
I am a musician. I am a singer, songwriter and I play a couple of instruments.
For me, success is in every step that you take, you achieve the goals that you have set for yourself. Success can be the small things that will lead to the big things.
