ayah-marar-1

Our friends at Brightside Network Media had a chance to catch up with the Queen of Bass Ayah Marar to discuss her “Real American Tour,” her collaboration with Calvin Harris “Thinking About You”, along with debut album “The Real” and her hit track “Beg Borrow Steal.” Check out an excerpt of the interview below and read the rest of the article here.

What does establishing your solo career mean for you on an emotional level?

More than anything, it’s an exercise in gaining the trust of the industry and fans so that I can start bringing through and representing the people that I think can make a real impact on the scene in a positive way.  It’s everything to me and it’s all I’ve got so it means the world.

Can you walk us through the production process behind “Beg Borrow Steal”?

I wrote and recorded it with Will Simms as part of my debut album, we locked ourselves away in a basement with cigarettes and red wine and poured our hearts out.  It was an exercise in self-expression and catharsis.  It’s a sensationalized autobiography.

We saw you played the Hard Rock Hotel o n the 8th in our neck of the woods… What do you think of the West Coast of California?

Absolutely adore it!  The people, the food and the vibe is unreal in SD, such a marvellously creative and fabulous place!

CDS Music Chart had a chance to speak with Ayah Marar on her recent rise to fame with her collaboration with Calvin Harris “Thinking About You” along with the release of her debut album The Real with the featured singles “Mind Controller,”"Unstoppable,”"Beg Borrow Steal,” and “The Raver.” Here’s what Ayah had to say about her album and what’s to come:

3. When did the plans for your album “The Real” come to mind?

They had been building for a while but it all came together when I met Will Simms and we ‘fell in love’ and decided to make something together.

4. When working on your album, did you sit down and write everything all at once or did you write over a long period of time?

We locked ourselves away for 4-5 months in a dark room and wrote and wrote and wrote every day.  I loved it!

5. Which of your songs means the most to you and why?

That’s would be like choosing a favourite child, they all mean something to me in a different way.

6. What are your plans for upcoming releases, collaborations or tours?

More tracks to come in the new year, collaborations, tours of course. First single of the year will drop soon, and of course it’s very important to me to keep supporting upcoming artists and push the UK scene any way I can through my company HUSSLE GIRL.

7. What helps you write or record music?

Heartbreak.

“You may recognize Ayah Marar from the Calvin Harris hit single “Thinking About You”, she’s released her new single recently and I’m absolutely floored. “Beg Borrow Steal” is a fucking smash, how this is not ripping through Top 40 radio right now is beyond me…The original is great, the Robot Dentist remix is just as amazing, everything here is winning and I’m happy to have such a solid POP anthem to set the tone for 2014.”
