Partnering with Natalie Indya West on incredible new track 'Goddess', Sunny Andrea is an artist with a brilliant talent.
We got the opportunity to put some questions to Sunny about her career to-date, future plans and much more - read on to find out what she had to say.
For those who may not have heard your sound yet, how best would you describe yourself as a musician?
I would certainly say that I have a softer sounding voice but I have been told it's quite sweet and unique. The style of the track ('Goddess') is very mystical and has a Bollywood-infused twist, but overall, it is a pop record, which we hope can inspire others, and with that influences all types of people. It's quite a fun track and empowering as a female!
Tell us about the new single 'Goddess' and the creative process behind that track.
I love all things creative and I have also modelled freelance as well as doing some television presenting, and I'm now breaking into the acting world.
Music has always been on my list and I've always wanted to record my own track or collaborate with someone on a pop record. I met Natalie via the New York Coffee Club, which is a coffee shop, based in East Grinstead that my husband runs, and it turned out we got chatting and that she was a singer/songwriter!
We got on really well and I had mentioned my thoughts to her and that was it. She got to work and within months, 'Goddess' was written. I think it's lovely that she has brought my Indian roots into the track and made it something different and what I feel [there] is a gap in the market [for]. I hope everyone loves it as much as we do!
What was it like working with one another on the song?
I was so excited and honoured to work with both Natalie Indya West and The Next Room productions on this track and just to create something a little different and sassy!
I cannot wait for the future and to see what happens with 'Goddess' and then to plan our next record together. Natalie is very easy to work with and very supportive - I love our partnership and friendship!
What is it about the world of music that you love and drives you to chasing a career in it?
I like the idea of not only inspiring others but doing something different and totally being yourself and showing others what you can do. I love the fact that you can touch others with your music and make them smile, or feel what you feel or relate to.
It's nice to know that happens and that people can also look up to you and strive to succeed. The music industry is so diverse and there is not just one thing I love about it and what makes it so special.
Networking is great. I look up to many artists and would love to be on their level one day or even collaborate with a few! I know the hard work that people put in and hopefully it all pays off!
If you could work with anybody going ahead on future music, who would you choose and why?
I would LOVE to work with someone like Jessie J or Rita Ora as I love everything these ladies are about and what they do! Ed Sheeran is also an amazing and very talented young man and I think we would work fab together!
I think an Arabic/Bollywood track would go down a storm, but with a pop/R&B feel to it! Something sassy but a bit more pace to it. I wonder if they have heard our debut single 'Goddess'?!
Do you have any definitive aims or goals for your career going forward?
I would certainly love to pursue music more and to work with Natalie and The Next Room and other creatives on some more tracks and then hopefully go [on] to release an album and do a small tour and see where that goes!
There looks to be a gap in the market and with our talents, my Indian/British Asian background, our style and Natalie's songwriting talents, I think we can do this and make our mark!
Acting-wise, I would love a part in EastEnders or just [to] co-host an entertainment related show.
