Artist Name: Sarah Charness
City/State: New York, NY
So tell us a little bit about yourself?
– My name is Sarah Charness and I live and breathe music in NYC. I have been rocking out in the EDM world on violin for the last seven years, both in NYC and abroad.
What inspired you to start singing?
– Well, Im a player not a singer (my singing voice is nothing to brag about haha) but I was inspired by my parents who were also musicians. I started playing when I was four years old although could never have guessed I would end up playing electronic music.
Were there any hard challenges you had to face in the industry?
– Absolutely! There aren’t to many violinists out there in the dance world and trying to get people to understand and accept what I have been doing has always been a challenge. I think people are afraid of what the don’t know and its always hard to explain what I do. You kind of just have to see it for yourself!
What ways have you found was the best way to promote yourself?
– To be honest, I find instagram to be awesome. I feel like it gives my audience a look into all facets of my life, not just my work. Facebook is great too but there is something about instagram that really makes you feel like you are getting to know somebody on a personal level and I love that! Also, who knew my selfies could look like professional photos!
What would be your most memorable moment while singing?
– Probably getting to perform at Madison Square Garden. It is just overwhelming in size and of course is a major NYC landmark.
Are there any goals that you would like to achieve?
– Absolutely! I would love to see the violin find a real home in dance music. I would also secretly die to play on an Avicii track! shhhhhh
What can we expect from you in the future?
– Expect a lot more original music. I hope to collaborate with some more established DJ’s but for now, I will continue to release music on my own!
Are there any upcoming albums you are releasing?
– Yes! I just released my first hip hop track called Classical Rap featuring Benatton. You can find it on Itunes!
What do you think of FKN Famous?
– FKN AWESOME!
Any last shout outs?
– Yes! To all the artists of the world out there, never let anybody tell you that you can’t because you totally can!
