Today we’d like to introduce you to Saevi.
Hi Saevi, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
For starters, I was born and raised in New York City, I started my music journey at a very young age. My parents put me in all types of dance and music classes growing up. I used to write songs for myself and even tried to get my friends to form a girl group in grade school.
Nothing ever came of it but I knew I was on to something. Haha, such a good time. In middle school. I began to focus my writing on myself and throughout high school and college I learned more of the sound I wanted for myself, I spent a long time studying jazz and funk music. and I’ve done live and recorded performances to promote my talent. Currently, my journey into the music industry has led me to partner with E music Entertainment.
The CEO, Debbie Egel, manages me and several other artists on her label. I have two producers I’ve been consistent in working with which are Peter Monk and DJ Shae Balboa, My latest single out now is titled ‘Insatiable’. A low-fi pop sound with a groove describes two lovers becoming so intertwined they simply can’t get enough of each other’s presence. Other unmentionables.
I will be working with them to release more music in 2022.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road.
I have faced challenges in finding people that respect the craft enough to finish songs, practice with me, and navigate with who I can trust to be around that won’t use music as a way to create any sort of romantic relationship.
Aside from that, there are a lot of cliques that aren’t open to other music artists sharing opportunities as much as one would hope. Lastly, as a Black woman, spaces made it clear that they have no space for me no matter how hard I tried.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a singer/songwriter. I specialize in the music category.
I would like to say I’m a pop artist now but I can honestly write to anything as long as the beat is a fire or I’m humming a tune that will later become the beat.
Over the past year, I’ve been studying different ways to construct a song so I’m excited to see how that will translate on the track.
