Shirin – one of the strongest voices of the year releases the new single “Together We Are Weak”

By on January 7, 2018

A sensational voice, a colorful personality and a talented songwriter. 2018 will be Shirin’s year! And it started last Friday with the new single “Together We Are Weak”.

The 22-year-old singer and songwriter single debuted last year with “Back To The Basics” and have since released Frans covern “If I Were Sorry” together with Damn!

The fact that Shirin is only 22 years old can be hard to understand if you only heard her music. Musically is Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse big influences and it’s through Amy’s music that she has dug deeper into the jazz.

– I’m like an old old man, she laughs. I like whiskey and jazz like Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughn and think music should be experienced live.

Shirin writes all her material herself.

– I usually write a verse and a chorus and go to the studio and if the result is something to have, we’ll work on, she says easily.

“We” are mainly herself and Fredrik Andersson at the record company/studio Cardiac. Sometimes it’s other involved, but it’s important that the music ultimately has Shirin’s unique imprint.

So far, she has spent most of her time in the studio and on gig, but now she wants to release and launch her music for real. Although Shirin has most played with Damn! she has her own band and this year she is planning to get out on the roads and present herself well. We will also be able to look forward to a whole lot of new music!

That said, 2018 will be Shirin’s year!
