Pop-Culturalist Chats with Sabryna
Meet Sabryna, an emerging pop artist, who’s making major moves in 2017. She’s been hard at work in the studio crafting her debut EP, and, recently, dropped her infectious summer hit, “Try It”. If you haven’t heard it, what are you waiting for? Pop-Cultluralist had the honor of chatting with this up-and-coming talent about the single, her new EP, and how she’s using social media to interact with her fans.
P-C: Tell us about your new single, “Try It”. What was the inspiration behind the song?
Sabryna: The song is a super fun summer anthem about seizing an opportunity and not letting a moment pass you by! It’s a feel-good song.
P-C: Who did you grow up listening to? Did they have an impact on your career or influence your sound?
Sabryna: I grew up listening to the R&B greats…Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and Luther Van Dross, which is probably why I can sing my ass off now [laughs].
P-C: Social media and digital streaming services have created a new medium for artists to get their music out in the world. We’re curious what your experience has been with these platforms?
Sabryna: Social Media has been an amazing way for me to connect with my fans and make new ones. I even gave out my cell phone number on social media to gain a more personal connection to my fans. Text me guys: 310-929-6877!
P-C: Now that the single is out, we have to ask, when can fans expect an EP or full-length recording?
