IN EXCLUSIVE FOR THE MAGAZINE DIGITAL SKELEROCK MEXICO, WE BRING YOU A REVIEW OF THE INTERVIEW WITH A GREAT EUROPEAN SINGER WHO HAS HIGHLIGHTED WITH HIS GREAT VOICE MUSIC IN ALL SENSES, THROUGH THIS WAY HIS PASSION AND LOVE FOR THE MUSIC HAS CARRIED IT A NEW WAYS. SUCH AS THE TRANCE, ROCK-POP AND TRIP HOP INFLUENCES HAVE MADE HER IN ONE OF THE MOST FAVORED SINGERS TO FOLLOW SOCIAL NETWORKS, SHE IS SARAH SHIELD.
SARAH SHIELD IS A SINGER OF FRENCH ORIGIN WHICH ENJOYING TO WRITE AND COMPOSE MUSIC IN ENGLISH, MAKING THESE SOUNDS BE POP STYLE WITH THE FEELING OF COUNTING OF THOSE CHOIRS THAT WE HAVE ALREADY MADE ALL THE LOVERS OF THE MUSIC,THESE SONGS GIVE SENSE TO OUR DAILY LIFE.
@: “I am a French singer and songwriter. Although I am French I only write in English. My music has many forms, but somehow it is always linked to pop music. I love catchy melodies with intricate and stimulating and dark deep letters. I like to write songs that people can sing and still find some depth to it”.
THE FRENCH SINGER SARAH SHIELD EXPRESSES HER MUSIC AS “RECURRENT”, THE HOPE TO FEEL THAT BEAT OF CHARACTER THAT CAN BE FEELED IDENTIFIED WHERE ALL SAD ACTION HAS A REACTION OF LIGHT OF HOPE.
@: “I cannot write when I’m happy or when I’m too sad, so my lyrics tend to gravitate to recurring themes like nostalgia, unrequited love, emotions, struggles and life challenges. Nothing is too spectacular! My friends say that there is always something sad in my songs, either in the melody or in the lyrics. However, there is always that underlying element of hope in my lyrics. I do not always write about my experiences or from my point of view. I like to put myself in someone’s shoes and try to imagine what it feels like to be in that situation. I write about what I see, what I hear, what I want. I would say, I’m all about the human spirit”.
SARAH SHIELD TELLS US ABOUT ITS NEXT THEMES THAT WILL BE IN SOLITARY PROJECT.
@: “I’ve wanted to write for me for a long time. Having been involved in bands and collaborations for several years, it is not the same. There are incalculable rules and limitations in terms of creativity because you have to adapt to the music, the artists and the members of the band. For this solo solo project, I’ve been experimenting with sounds, testing new plug-ins, and mixing electronic influences with my pop / rock roots. Ludovic H (producer and sound designer) has been working on my songs to help shape a cohesive but rich project in terms of musical sounds. It is an encyclopedia of music and he (Ludovic H) knows me very well. When I cannot put words in a specific fx or sound I want in a part, he knows exactly what I’m talking about. In general, it’s going to be a very melodic album”.
ALSO TOLD US AS IT WAS THAT I INSPIRE HER TO BE ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE SINGERS OF TODAY, AS WELL AS HER PRESENT PROJECTS WHO HAVE IN MIND TO REVEAL IN 2017.
@: “I started when I was 8 years old with music theory for 3 years, and then I got to know my first instrument, the saxophone. I used to play in small orchestras for several years, until I discovered the guitar at around age 15. That’s when I started writing my first songs. I formed a pop / folk band after high school, I recorded an album in the studio after winning a regional contest. Then I moved to the university city and formed a new band called (Sarah and the middlemen, with pop-rock style). I spent 4 years in the band, writing and co-writing. When I started a solo project, I felt that I had to know more and experience different genres of music, so I left the band and began to focus on collaboration with other musicians, especially in electronic music. In 2014 I met with Denis, a French producer, and that’s how it began little by little, with a collaboration which leads to another collaboration and finally leads to a new project. We have a great musical connection, he is very talented and creative, this project has challenged me in terms of composition and vocally as well. This is going to be my first solo project and I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so I’m taking my time. The skeletons of the songs are all written and ready, but like so many other things I’ve wanted to experience different directions and versions of songs. For example, nowadays, I’m re-recording voices for a song that I’m trying a softer version in terms of arrangements. If everything goes well, something that should come out before the summer of 2017! “.
SARAH SHIELDS TELLS US ABOUT ITS MUSICAL INFLUENCES AND WHAT WE HAVE PREPARED FOR THIS 2017.
@: “I grew up in pop music in the 1990s, like Alanis Morissette, The Cranberries, Max Martin and Metallica productions. I have a weakness for The Carpenters. ” That’s for the foundations. In recent years, I’ve been to bands like Goldfrapp, Chvrches, Banks and Archive, just to name a few. I also want to mention that the Unkind project was on hold for a year and we are going back to work in early 2017 and start rehearsing for live shows. I have learned a lot about production and recording, I would really like to be more autonomous. The more I learn, the more creative I get, so there’s going to be a lot of my plan for 2017. Finally, I’m really excited about this and I hope people like the songs that will be ready soon”.
THEMES IN COLLABORATION AS “SUCCUBUS” (WILDPUPPET), “A LIGHT INSIDE” (ROMAN MESSER), “HERO” (DJ FEEL), “THE MOST IMPORTANT THING” (FERRY TAYLE), “SHINE” (ALAE KHALDI), AMONG OTHERS SONGS OF TRANCE MUSIC HAVE BEEN VERY LISTENED INTERNATIONAL, FOR SUE SPLENDID VOICE WHICH MAKES IT TRANSPORT TO OTHER SENSES.
