What Musical Genre Do You Feel Best Describes Your Music And How Would You Describe Your Sound?







How Did You Get Your Name? IsThereAStory?

Serenah is something I came up with on my own, the name Serenah means peaceful and quiet, as a person my heart is calm especially through the storms that others cause within my life, I’m always at peace no matter the wrong that has been done to me, I always make the best of what I have with a peace of mind and patience waiting quietly.


What Are or Have Been Your Musical Influences?

Juice Wrld is one of my biggest influences because he’s super talented, he could listen to a track and come up with something and create an entire album in just minutes, he speaks about real experiences, some people may not agree with the choices he made on how he dealt with his pain, depression and anxiety, but ultimately music was his escape, writing and coming up with his own sound was his escape and trying to reach others and let them know that they weren’t alone, I listen to juice everyday and because of him I decided to pick up the pen again and push myself musically and as an artist to really find myself and break my way into this industry no matter how many times I fall.


What Are You Working On Now? Any Future Collaborations We Can Look Forward To?

I am currently writing 2 different albums, one is mostly of myself rapping, the other album is more pop and soulful, I want the world to know the crossover within music that I have the talent to do so, after these 2 albums I plan on doing a gospel album and even a country album at some point.


What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry? What Is Your Plan Of Action?

My ultimate goal in this industry is to prove to myself that I do have what it takes no matter what, I have had my own creativity held over my head many times, told that I couldn’t do this without a certain person and that I don’t know what it takes to do it on my own, but really I want to reach the hearts of millions of fans, and even other artists who have made it or are currently trying to make it because it’s like juice said, “you can do anything you put your mind to, as long as you work hard give it your all and don’t listen to what anybodys got to say it’s your world you can do whatever you want” and that’s what I want to show people is that, you really can do anything you want as long as you manifest that and believe in yourself, because really it doesn’t matter what anybody has to say, as long as you believe in yourself then you’re unstoppable once you realize that, then everyone else’s opinion doesn’t matter.


What Is Your Favorite Track To Perform Live and Why?

Currently a song I have yet to release it’s called new forever, I wrote it about 2 years ago as a love song for my ex fiancé I had previously named the track “you forever” and when he left this year back in February I rewrote it as a moving on song so that’s where the name “new forever” had come in and it’s such a powerful song to me because I know I’m not the only one that’s overcome that kind of heartbreak, and it means more to me than any other song I’ve recorded or have written, and the lyrics are so powerful and once I release it on all platforms I really feel a lot of people can relate to it and everytime I perform it live I get such a positive reaction from the crowd that it brings out that much more emotion.


What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?

Being rejected and told no by many labels without them actually listening to the songs I do have recorded, or even checking out my talent and how much I can bring to the table by being able to go to different lengths vocally because I know that once the right people hear me they’re going to think “wow this young woman has so much potential that we could really bring her to the next level and not only make her a star but change the game in the industry.


Whats Your Typical Songwriting Process?

I listen to the track, with what subject I want to touchdown on or even produce the track myself, listen for a cadence and once I come up with the cadence I’ll go back and record that cadence, and then I will put words on paper and create a story within a song, for me it has to be catchy and it has to be relatable.


How Has Social Media Influenced Your Career As An Artist?

Because of how much talented artists I see and the idea of collabing with multiple talented artists and expressing myself with different sounds of different genres, and the creativity that’s out there I mean there is just so much potential in the world today but instead of abusing that potential I want to use this time to give meaningful messages that could help many women or even men that are struggling with certain things that most people don’t talk about.

What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?

Struggle, I have worked many jobs trying to save up to put money into this career, I currently just came from the pipelines, I actually had told the company that I am working on finishing this album and working on trying to get into some shows to start performing and building up my fan base


Any Advice For Young People, Men or Women, That Want To Succeed In The Music World?

Definitely, do not give up, no matter how discouraged you get, no matter what family members, friends, coworkers who ever it is that tells you that it’s a 1% chance and laugh at you, man the best thing you can do is keep all of that to yourself, prove to yourself by expressing yourself more by improving your craft and just staying focused on your goal because the one thing you gotta remember is not everybody’s trying do what you’re tryna do you know what I mean, so idc if you talk to a major label and they reject you, keep pushing, find motivation in that to make yourself that much more determined to break into this industry and don’t stop until you get there.


What Would You Change In The Music Industry If You Were A Top Music Executive?

I would change the messages in most these songs, to influence young women to respect themselves more, to have traditional morals and to learn to love themselves more, and for the young men, if I had that kind of power the men working for me making music would be giving messages for other young teens or even grown men to treat them like a queen, respect them and their name by calling them nothing outside their name, if I were a music exec I would bring back traditional music and for the sexual part it would be meaningful and romantic, not just another body for the count, with all that being said I don’t mean any disrespect toward any artist doing what they do, you love what you love and I’ll never discourage anybody from doing something they love, but to at least consider the impact it may have on a 12-13 year old young boy or girl you feel me?


How Do You Feel About Originality?

It is the most authentic version of any artist wether they are trying to find themself or already have, originality shows a lot about their sound, their experience and everything that makes them who they are.


Is There Anything Else We Should Know About You Or That You Would Like to Add?

I am 23 years old and have always dreamt of becoming a successful artist and I started singing at a young age so much that my grandparents would have to leave the room, and then at 16 I found my voice and started writing songs but finally figured out the key to writing at 19 years old and I’m still determined to achieve my goals musically at 23. So don’t give up, keep pushing.
