Singer-songwriter Sarey Savy is making a name for himself in the indie music scene. The Seattle native writes what he feels and what his fans and supporters can relate to. In October 2016, he released his single, “Spend Time Wit Me” (available on Soundcloud), which he laces nice vocals on the “Rack City”-like instrumentals. He is also involved with a local LGBTQ community that promotes awareness and a safe space for youth ages 12-21. This young artist is waiting to put his stamp on the map and with his ambition and dedication, he will do exactly that. Check out our interview with Sarey Savy below.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
SS: Sarey Savy is my name and I’m Cambodian. I’ve been interested in making music for years but it wasn’t until I was 12 when I decided to pursue it as a career. I actually write my own lyrics, arrange my own melodies, and sometimes produce my own beats using FL Studio. A lot of the inspiration from my music stems from life experiences from relationships to self esteem to good times.
How would you describe your sound?
SS: If you put Sam Smith’s deep lyrics, to a DJ Mustard type beat (with his catchy yet simple melodies), you would get me. Very interesting stuff (laughs).
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
SS: My new single “Spend Time Wit Me” was a very easy process and very natural for me to create. I had an idea for a melody in my head randomly one day and recorded it on my voice memo on my phone then later went to FL Studio to bring it to life. I wrote it when I first met my current partner who I’ve been with for over 2 years and counting. It’s about being attracted to someone you admire whether it’s who they are as a person or the way they hustle.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
SS: I’m currently devoting my time to creating more original music and promoting “Spend Time Wit Me” which I hope to perform live very soon. I’m always looking for my niche in the music market consistently.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
SS: Headlining Capitol Hill Pride Festival in 2014 with Mary Lambert on the bill was so awesome. 30,000+ people attended throughout the day and It was an amazing experience. Thank you to Philip L. and Charlotte L. for that opportunity!
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s).
SS: JASMINE V. I’m feelin her new music lately and she’s my favorite artist out right now. “That’s Me Right There” and “Dear John” be my jams!
Name something random that people do not know about you.
SS: The idea of melodies I get from my songs almost always comes up while I’m in the shower (laughs).
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
SS: Being an independent artist and the process behind controlling everything can be great but it can also be very f*cking hard.
What can we expect from you in the future?
SS: Expect me to be releasing new music and hopefully *fingers crossed* my first music video next year. We’ll see where life takes me in 2017.
Anything else you would like to share with our readers?
SS: My friend Jazmin Arevalo’s mom Claudia has a special request. Claudia’s mom has cancer and it would be very uplifting and powerful If we heard from ANYBODY for positive messages to be shared with Claudia through me. Please contact me on my website www.sareymusic.com and email me your positive thoughts. Thank you!
