From releasing an EP earlier this year and working on remixes of her new "Aware, Alive, Awake," to a weekly residence at incredible new restaurant, Sushi Roxx and an upcoming makeup line, it's safe to say that Sariah has been busy. However, it doesn't seem that the pop singer is overwhelmed in any way. With big plans for the rest of 2015 and certainly even more goals for the upcoming year, Sariah isn't showing any signs of slowing down, and with a positive attitude and a strong passion for everything she does, that comes as no surprise.
Listen to Sariah's single, "Aware, Alive, Awake" and read the interview below!
Interview by Dom Vigil
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, for any readers who may not be familiar?
Hi! I am Sariah, the Queen of Hearts. I am a passionate Pop singer who wants to travel all over to perform and to connect with audiences world wide! I have had two Billboard Dance Chart Toppers and I am ready for an exciting fall ahead with new additions to my music, fashion, and makeup line!
You just recently released your new single, “Aware, Alive, Awake” - can you tell us a little bit about the song? What’s the story behind it?
Yes! "Aware, Alive, Awake" is a huge single for me because it is like a right of passage. When we were creating this song, I was having a very personal breakthrough in self discovery and also learning to love myself first before anyone else. I encourage my hearts to all remember that you HAVE to love yourself first before anything else. I am really proud of this single and every time I listen to it, I feel empowered! I hope you do too.
You’re also planning on releasing a new EP a little later this year. Can you talk a little bit about that?
I actually released my EP in February! So we are working on new remixes for "Aware, Alive, Awake" and my NEWEST single "Resuscitate Me!" "Aware, Alive, Awake" has remixes from all over the world, including Italy and it is on a world wide compilation titled “Euphoria!” Available now.
What are you most excited for listeners to hear from any upcoming music?
I am most excited for my listeners to hear all of my new remixes. What excites me most about remixes is that there is something for everyone! No matter what style you like, you will love them all! They are fire for the dance floor too. I look forward to rocking out for my live performances with them!
How do you feel that new songs you’ve been working on compare to the material on Queen Of Hearts?
I am always extremely honest with my material and whatever I write. But I feel like now, more than ever, I’m really growing into my own stilettos and writing purely from my heart.
What is your inspiration or mindset when working on new material?
Following my heart, my dreams, new crushes, and old heartbreaks!
You’ve been performing weekly at this amazing new restaurant called Sushi Roxx, as well. How did that come about?
YES! It has been the most exciting journey ever and I am so thankful to be a part of it. I got connected through a friend and as soon as I met the team of Sushi Roxx, we immediately clicked. It was like we were looking for each other! I absolutely love being there and am so excited to be a part of such a phenomenal venue!
What has been the coolest or most exciting thing about being involved with Sushi Roxx?
Being able to perform twice a day everyday from Tuesday through Saturday! Also meeting such incredible people in many different industries. I LOVE who I work with and the owner, Jason Apfelbaum, is one of the most incredible leaders ever.
Do you have any other big plans for the rest of 2015?
I am releasing my own make-up line! I am SO excited about it and can’t wait for the world to have it!
Thanks for taking the time to chat with us! Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Follow your heart. No matter what it is – you must choose happiness and do what you love! That is always my advice. Be sure to stay connected and let’s chat on social networks! I absolutely love my hearts and love connecting with them all around the world!
Your Queen of Hearts
