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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Are you on tour right now?
At the moment, I am doing a lot of radio interviews and writing new songs.
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.
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.
Sabrina, it was a pleasure to have this chat with you today, we really wish you all the best for your music!
