In this issue we will present a charming, extremely talented and very enthusiastic young performer. Her career has just begun, but she can already boast of 4 excellent video singles and an avalanche-like growing number of fans. Smiling, positive, but also overly exuberant …
Preyah, as your fans know perfectly well, you yourself are the author of the lyrics of your songs. I wonder how long have you been writing, where does inspiration strike you most often?
I think I found out such inclinations in me, when, as a shool girl, I wrote a poem for my teacher to celebrate the last school day.
I remember that then I liked it very much. Inspiration most often strikes me when I’m alone with myself, and if I am outside the urban clamor, the outbursts of inspiration multiply significantly. Much of the books, I have read, have changed my emotional self.
That’s why I read.
Books are something like a crash course on living.
By joining the project Studio Live, you probably signal another direction in which you can develop your personal music – with more live instruments and why not, a more harsh, even experimental pop sound. How do you imagine your future projects and do you have an idea of a new song?
The concept of this series implied that sound. It was extremely pleasant to me to have my pieces rearranged. Of course, we are already working on a new song and I assure you that nobody could foresee what exactly to expect.
I know that, when you were a child, you were part of a school choir. But do you play some instrument (piano or guitar), and do you also imagine yourself as a musician on the stage?
Again, when I was a child, I had aspirations to several instruments, that subsequently proved to not be the right ones for me, except piano.
I took lessons, but my mother told the teacher that I would not go any more, without my consent or even without me knowing that at all, because of a misunderstanding (or because adults know everything, and children “do not understand”) and several months ago I cut my relationship with it. We’ll see how far this will go…
Preyah, for a little over a year now you have made 4 solo video singles. Each of these music pieces has its own, I would call it, social message. Beside through your songs, do you consider yourself part of a social initiative and what campaign would you sincerely support?
Definitely! For me the most meaningful benefit of being a public figure is sending messages to the largest possible mass of people – meaningful messages, which lead to a universal progress.
There are so many things in the world that need to be repaired, so I can not start listing the campaigns I would support.
What is your definition of ambition and can one achieve real success without it?
For me ambition is a powerful force. Even if real success is possible without it, it would be of short duration. I think it is quite a useful quality, and if absent, evolution would be a bigger failure. 🙂
