Eyes Like Leaves was written in the days of Moonheart and Charles de Lint's other high fantasy novels. The tale slept like a long-forgotten lover until he recently chose to revisit and polish this never-before-published gem.
Eyes Like Leaves is a longwords never-before-published novel. We expect demand for Eyes to be even stronger, given that it is a novel, and do not plan additional printings to meet increased demand. Unique icon of true rock stardom. A soulful collection that brings you feet first into her music, gracing the passion she shares with us all and holds you to a light of sound and silence.
Lets add her voice to be heard! What can you tell me about your life? I am from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and have been here all my life. I got my first acoustic guitar when I was 16 years old to accompany myself, to write lyrics and compose music.
As you have noticed, most of my life has been devoted to music. What brings out the passion you show in your music? It is the love for music and being able to tell my story through it. I would love to be a detective, because of mystery or a race car driver, because of speed. Who is your mentor, growing up and how did that person inspire you? I consider my cousin Jeff as my mentor. He got me into music and encouraged me to pursue it, because of the passion I had for it.
Jeff is also a musician himself and has a home recording studio where I have recorded some of my music, which I used to upload on Myspace. Who are the people behind you that work with you before and during your stage performances? I am a solo artist, so I do everything myself. However, I have very supportive parents who take me to all of my shows. My father usually helps me set up my equipments on stage. How do you encourage others to be their best when someone do not feel their best?
I would try to tell them that everything willl be okay and not to be afraid. I would also try to help them trust themselves and to develop confidence. To be the best is the best you can do and not to compare yourself with others.
What is the first thing you think of before going on stage and what advice would you give someone before they go on? A lot of things go through my mind before I go on stage. For example, worrying about remembering lyrics, doing a good show, and have a little bit of anxiety, which disappears after I sing the first song. The advice I would give someone before they go on stage is to be confident, not to overthink, have fun and to do their best. What is the hard part of creating songs?
In general, I would say having the song idea, but not being able to express it in words on a piece of paper. Going through writers block can be a struggle and you may have to leave the song for a few days or weeks to rest your mind or compeletely write a new song and then come back to the one you were working on. Do the words come before the tune or the tune before the lyrics?
For me, it happens both ways. Sometimes I have the lyrics first, and sometimes the music. What charities do you support? What would you consider to be a great day for you? Seeing dogs, cats and feeding the squirrels in my backyard. Also, it is a great day when I finish a song I have been working on.
Is there anything you would love to tell the viewers and listeners that is personal and meaningful to you? Life can be taugh and we all have good and bad days. We just need to keep our head up and remain positive and never give up. What would you call your best life experience? When I was very young, I had fear of going on stage.
Press - Sabrina Fallah Sabrina Fallah
At 14, I decided to participate in a singing competition. The day of the competition I was so scared that I started crying and wanted to go back home. My parents convinced me just to stick around and watch. So, I performed and won 1st place.
How did you decide you wanted to share your dreams and desires with us all? Music has been a part of my life since I was a child. Going through bad times and good. How would you help others going through it themselves and what can you say to help from your own experiences? In life you go through a lot and you just have to stay strong, be positive, believe in yourself and keep moving forward. What do your instincts tell you about some people.
And do you listen to them? In life they always say listen to your instincts, because it turns out to be always right. But, do we really listen to it all the time, no not really. What is the gift you share with everyone you meet?
The New Step-Mummy by Kiki Thorpe | Scholastic
I have been told that I am very approachable. Depending on the person and the place we meet, I like to listen to find out about them and also share my own stories. How do you prepare yourself before going on stage? I do my vocal warm ups as I put my makeup on. I also pray and take some deep breaths to calm my nerves. Where can others purchase your music and contact you for interviews and promotions? They can purchase my music on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc.
They can contact me on my social media sites. At 14, Fallah started playing the guitar and later she would study the vocal styles of Green Day, Bon Jovi, and Billy Idol because they matched her low, raspy, deep singing style. But vocal training would help her perfect her rock style vocals. Fallah hails from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada where she performs extensively as well as in Central Canada, and at various Canadian and international venues, festivals, and charity events.
I interviewed Sabrina recently about her EP, her DJ gig, working with notable producers, international venues, production, and more. What is the concept or theme? When I went to Nashville to co-write, I wanted to write about what I and others have been through in their life.
I want people to relate to my music when they listen to it. How did the opportunity come up to work with them? How was it to work with them and any plans to do so again in the future?
I raised my hand up a couple of times. He then asked my teacher if he could talk to me. We had a wonderful chat and then he asked if he could hear some of my music. I then got his contact information from my teacher and forwarded a few of the songs I had already recorded. Stuart and the band he provided for my record were amazing to work with. They made me feel at home and very comfortable right away. I would love to work with them again. When I was in Toronto, I was songwriting and I wanted to find a producer to work with.
He then gave me his contact information and I gave Chris a call and arranged a meeting with him. Working with Stuart Epps and Chris Burkett was a lot of fun. I would definitely love to work with them again. For your current EP, you worked with veteran producer Kent Wells in Nashville, Tennessee and co-wrote with several songwriters there. What was that experience like?
How did co-writing compare to writing original songs yourself? Would you do it again? My first week in Nashville was really intense, co-writing almost every day with different songwriters.
Before arriving in Nashville, I was in contact with the team I was going to work with, so they knew the styles of music I wanted to write and record. Although I had many of my original songs with me, I decided to start fresh and write completely new ones. Every songwriting session was about 2 to 3 hours long, some were written in their offices and some where I was staying. I had such a great time co-writing, it was a different experience with each writer. They each had their own unique style of writing and structuring the song.
I really like how all the new songs have turned out. It was really hard narrowing it down to the few songs we chose to record. I love writing by myself, but having another songwriter to write with can bring up many new and fresh ideas into the song.
