SABRINA – Drive [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Empowering, Open and Passionate.

Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the main idea behind it?

It’s a “fuck you” to anyone who makes you feel like you’re not good enough or makes you wait around for them when they are just playing a game. The main hook “Boy get in your car and drive” is basically saying, “Boy, get lost and go”. Getting rid of any negative energy that you were feeling!

Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?

I love collaborating when I can. I enjoy working with others, I know I can learn more about my songwriting process and production so when I get the chance to collab with someone I always try and say yes. I personally don’t find songwriting lonely because it’s my way of getting out my emotions and feelings that I sometimes don’t know how else to journal, so songwriting to me is that open journal.

Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?

James Blake – his music is just something else. Old music by strong females like Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Etta James. Indie artists that I randomly find on Spotify which I end up playing on repeat, day to day tasks, hearing others conversations whilst on a bus, my own experiences that I’ve had during my time.. SOOOOO many things inspire me.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

My biggest challenge so far…. hmm, I think that has to be standing out amongst so many amazing artists. It’s hard to feel like you’re doing well as so many other talented people are doing the same thing. I just hope I have a unique voice or unique sound that people just know it’s me.

Favorite film ever?

Favourite film… I have too many.

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Ooooh, this is a good question. I honestly don’t know. I love interior design so perhaps something to do with that?

Thank you!
