Coming all the way from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada you have Sabrina Fallah. She’s a sublime singer/ songwriter/ guitarist who packs plenty of promise. Now it was way back in 2012 when she made her debut, the offering being the self-titled EP and this being a captivating 5 tracker. Fast forward 4 years Fallah is back with the sophomore Kiss is A Killer, this being an addictive concoction of pop meets rock which worked wonders. Both of these exquisite efforts were completely independent, it wasn’t until 2019 when she got snapped up by Dance Plant Records which issued the debut self-titled LP and this being a collection of both EPs housed in just the one package. Also, you had 2015s The Frontline and brand-new original Everything added in for good measure.
Sabrina has had the opportunity to work with are Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Twisted Sister), Chris Birkett (Peter Gabriel, Quincy Jones, Buffy Sainte Marie, Sinead O’Connor) and Kent Wells (Dolly Parton).
Recently I’ve been introduced to Fallah’s music and I must say I’m well and truly enthralled with the material underneath her belt. Sabrina grew up listening to the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne, Michelle Branch and Simple Plan all of which are impeccable artists. Her musical influences range from Green Day to Billy Idol to Bon Jovi. Sabrina actually taught herself which is amazing, also like many artists her song writing started off as poetry. As for her sound I would describe it as a mixture of Joan Jett meets Green Day, Sabrina’s raspy vocal tones were pure dynamite and at the same time there’s an edginess to each track. Whilst I adore every single composition, three which stick out for me were Everything which had me envisioning Avril Lavigne, Hurt was a soothing acoustic gem that’s a complete game changer and then you had the punk/ pop Didn’t Last which envoked similarities with Simple Plan.
Things really started to take off towards the end of 2019, it was here when Fallah had her first radio interview with Ron Carson. This opportunity on WSBS Radio (860 AM and 94.1 FM) then led to her originals The Frontline and Hurt being played on mainstream radio. It was here when Sabrina’s compelling cuts were picked up by other stations.
We then get to 2020 and an interview with Brian Sullivan on WBLQ 1230 AM in Westerly, Rhode Island, United States then led to Brian inviting Sabrina to join him as his co-host on his morning show “The Brian Sullivan’s Early Show in 2021.
Finally, it’s plain to see that Sabrina Fallah is extremely passionate about her craft, the fact she remained fully independent for 7 years before getting signed gets major kudos from me. Also, her very own YouTube channel is packed with interviews which again showed how dedicated she is to getting her name/ music out there.
