what happens when you add a melody to the thoughts in your head ? what happens when there you express your feelings with a harmony ? the answer is simple you get Music.
Music has always been a way to tell a story or to state a point that you couldn’t state in conventional ways, Now anyone who knows me will know how much music means to me and what a huge part of my life it occupys whether Im at work , studying , gaming or even sleeping there must be music playing, Although todays music isnt really my favorite especially since it is being abused today by modern musicians today for profit that is not what Im going to talk about today instead today Im going to present you with a new artist that uses music to convey emotions , feelings , stories and more today Im going to replace the words dedication , passion , talent, emotion with two names that represent all these words so without further ado allow me to present to you Sarah Al Shaybani or Shébani and Mohamed Bailouni or Rayan. Sarah was always blessed with a beautiful talent that was her voice so she decided that she wanted to share her talent with the world so like any aspiring artist she started small and that is by doing vocal covers of her favorite songs and posting them on Various social media platforms especially YouTube slowly she gained more confidence and then started playing those covers live and attending open mic nights all over the country all that while writing her own material now there is something you should know about Sarah and that is she has a very strong personality and it shows in the way she interacts with people and in her opinions regarding everything so when she started writing that is exactly what she wanted to show in her music her character and personality and not just the obvious one but she even gave her inner voice to be a part of the composition process. The pieces were being put together but one missing link was there and that was finding a producer that would be able to transform her expectations to reality, someone who also had a personality as strong as her’s and would understand what she wants and what she hopes to acheive and it wasn’t money or fame but it was something deeper than that, What sarah really wanted was to tell her story , be a voice that is accounted for not just another number in the world’s population and she found that person and He was Mohamed Bailouni or Rayan and they instantly clicked together and synced up and from there it was just non stop dedication and work. Sarah put her social life on hold for a while and went into double dutch mode and trust me when I say that it wasn’t easy but she knew that it was worth and oh was she right, on July 23rd Shébani announced all over the social media platforms that she will be releasing the music video and single called Ocean on fire which is off her EP Alter Ego on the 27th of july and the waiting games began , everyone who followed or knew Shébani and Rayan was waiting for the release of that music video, we wanted to know after all that time and effort they both put in what the end result would be. July 27 the moment of truth the single got released and I can honestly tell you it wasn’t like anything I expected it exceeded all the standards I had set, I could feel Shébani’s Feelings , Hear her thoughts and also uderstand the message that Rayan was trying to convey.Honestly the song put me in a whole different mood, It took me down to memory lane and brought back memories that I had once forgotten and only then only after I heard that song I understood why she chose to call her EP Alter Ego and personally I think each one would have a different interpretation to the song but that’s best part of it feeling something after listening to a song is truly a gift that many people don’t understand and appreciate. I cannot stress on how excited I am for the rest of the EP to be released and I cannot congratulate Shébani and Rayan for their outstanding work.She has raw talent and passion that needed someone to polish and sculpture and Rayan definitely excelled in that. so from my blog I would like to congratulate them both and wish them eternal success in all their upcoming projects.
