This girl stood out like a rocket in my mind a few months ago, and has been lingering since.
Although she may be in the early stages of her music journey, she is one of the rare local singer songwriters who, I feel, have commercial potential overseas.
She hails from Kuantan, wears a tudung, studies law in Uitm, and bleeds a raw, unpolished sincerity in her songs.
I like her for the same reasons I like Meor. In the global marketplace of homogenous musical talent, they appear to have stories of their own.
Speaking to Izham that day got me dreaming about the music business again. It’s a puzzle I never really solved, but I reckon I will revisit when the time is right.
