Parisa Bilal is a singer-songwriter, I’ve been singing for twelve years and I just started songwriting during Covid December 2020
How long have you been creating music?
I’ve been singing since twelve years now and I just started writing December 2020.
Do you have a preferred genre?
I love EDM and Soul/Pop
Tell us about your latest song, EP, or album.
Don’t Leave is about the girl telling her loved one to not leave because her life would be incomplete without him. She needs him to save her because he means the world to her and she can’t breathe without him.
Are there any challenging aspects to writing and/or recording your music?
Surprisingly no, all these twelve years of singing I always wondered how people are able to write their own songs and then twelve years later one night it just clicked in my sleep. I started getting words in my mind and the tune of the song. I would wake up in the middle of the night to voice record what came in my head. That’s where it all started from and since then it hasn’t been a challenge for me. It literally takes me less than five minutes to write a complete song.
Has your style evolved since the beginning of you career?
I’ve only released two songs so far and I’m all about exploring.
What do you enjoy most about being a musician?
I enjoy the fact that you can express yourself and your feelings through music.
Playing live or recording in studio? Do you have a preference?
I would say for me my preference would be performing live as it’s a whole another vibe. You get a certain type of energy while performing in front of an audience. Whereas recording in a studio you’re in your element.
Do you have a preference… vinyl records, cassettes, CDs, or downloads?
As much as I love records and cassettes, with the recent technology evolving downloads would be my preference in this generation.
Tell about a magical moment or positive experience that has happened through music.
I used to be in choir when I was in 6th grade and I used to be a high soprano. There was an audition happening around the LAUSD school district for a music event that was happening at the Kodak Theatre (Dolby Theatre). My choir teacher insisted me on auditioning and I went and gave my audition and they said they would post a list outside the classroom the next day and we would find out if we made it. The next when I went to school I went to see the list already assuming I didn’t get chosen, but my name was the first one on the lost. I was 1 out a 100 student around different schools to get chosen to perform at the Kodak Theatre. I can never forget that day, it was a once in a lifetime chance for me and I feel so blessed to have this story to tell.
Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?
Adele is my biggest inspiration, she is the most outgoing person. She’s got so much vocal control, and feelings in her songs, something I wish to improve in myself.
Would you like to travel to other countries to perform your music? If so, what would be your first stop?
Oh yes! I would love to get the opportunity to travel to other countries to perform my music. I think my first stop would be Europe.
Are you currently working on any projects we should look out for?
Yes, I am
Is there something you would like to say, that we didn’t cover?
A little advice I would like to give new musicians is, be patient everything has a timeline you just have to keep working hard and be consistent one day your hardwork will pay off but just trust in time.
