If music is the Universal language, Independent Artist Sonya Kahn's new music CD, NEW BEGINNING will translate worldwide to anyone who truly believes in living life to the fullest. Coming to America only five years ago, she took it upon herself to learn a new language specifically so she can write, produce and sing songs in English. And this is only part of what makes this 13-track CD a labor of love, blood, sweat, tears, as she discovered the rollercoaster business side of "show business." Self-motivated, this determined music multi-hyphenate prevailed with her tenacious ambition and music expertise to do it herself. The result is a classically inspired, soulful and poetic anthemic rock-a-phonic album CD release on Sonya's own label Mozarta Muzik, where she performed wearing many hats singing, songwriting, playing piano and guitar, arranging, and producing her own album, along with auditioning members to create her own band. With 500,000+ profile views on Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/sonyakahn), one of her songs featured on the soundtrack of an Indie film, getting attention on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP5M3-Ee_KM) and a full enterprise of merchandise, downloads and wallpaper available on her website http://www.sonyakahn.com, it's evident that Sonya Kahn's NEW BEGINNING in the U.S. is an inspiring one.
At twenty four, this classically trained artist born in Russia, has a Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree in concert piano performing and musical theory. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8unXwUeE4Q&feature=related). Having previously turned down labels and recording offers that just 'didn't fit who she was,' this third generation female of a musically talented family learned early from her mother, (an established concert pianist and university professor) and grandmother (a singer/actress and radio performer), how important focusing on your own dream is. "The most valuable thing I've learned is discipline, practice and that it's never enough…Socrates said "True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing." However, having this kind of background and base knowledge, I can "fly" anywhere I want to, possibilities are endless. My training and knowledge and my family's expertise are giving me more confidence and strength to continue my journey in this wild world called the "music business." It helps me fight back - keeping my high standards and move forward without losing my integrity as a musician and artist, "states Kahn.
NEW BEGINNING is representative of both ends of the music spectrum of heartfelt rock power ballads to feisty driving rock songs, peppered with a few dance-beat murmurs. Sonya has three favorite songs on her 13-track CD. "Friend"- is a special song. Everything you hear there is exactly what I was going through. I didn't hold back any of my emotions and that's why it's so personal. Second favorite is "About Love", I wanted to write about life, about serious issues, about politics but the same time didn't want it to be a dark song, so I think I've accomplished what I was going for. And the third one is "Lonely Road." I love it because I play more piano there than on any of my songs on this album, it's dramatic but the same time filled with optimism, I sing about destiny, our chosen paths and belief in ourselves, and that no matter how difficult things can get sometimes, we can make it on our own," explains Kahn. NEW BEGINNING is available at iTunes, CDBaby.com, Digistation.com and soon in stores.
