With the same type of music circulating, it is refreshing when a new artist comes along and does something different. Tsunari is a UK singer and songwriter that has done exactly that with her last three releases. Taking influences from different cultures and genres, she mixes these elements to bridge the gap in today’s music scene.
-Start of Interview-
Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
I’m Tsunari and I’m a singer and songwriter that’s moved from Korat, Thaialnd to london . My dad is British-Trinidadian and my mom is originally from Thailand and i was born in Kettering . I spent most of my childhood traveling from countries to countries and from school to school which plays a big part in my music taste and my identity. hence why i’m quite quirky sometimes ahaha .
Where are you from?
I’m from thailand and The UK
When did you start music?
I started taking music seriously when I was thirteen . I grew up really shy but I always knew that I’m going to be a singer one day . I’d started writing songs in my head since I was 5-6 years young that would sound like kiddy songs . I was so proud of myself but too shy to tell anyone ,even my parents . So when I told my mom that I wanted to join my school’s singing competition , she was shocked about it .
How did you get into music?
Growing up in Thailand as a mixed race child was challenging for me . I got bullied a lot and some kids in class would have nicknames for me which was harsh . So music was my only outlet that made me feel like I belonged to something/somewhere and there was no judgement regardless of who you are or where you are from. For me, Music is universal love .
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
Confidence. I think the bullying and the constant comments judging me about my features left a scar growing up. But I’ve finally overcome it, understood life and I am happy and grateful for that. I’m learning everyday and becoming the person I am today.
Are you currently signed or independent?
Independent at the moment.
Who inspires you the most musically?
The list goes on and on But growing up I listened to alot of Destiny’s child, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, Spice girls and Britney Spears. Gotta love some pop tunes too !
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
Honesty, depth and loving who you are …not taking crap from anybody.
Any new music coming out soon?
Absolutely! I have an EP coming out very soon. Really cant wait to share you what i’ve been cooking up.
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
Moving to London to pursue my music career. I’ve met so many amazing musicians that i’ve worked and collaborated with it’s so inspiring.
Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?
I don’t produce my own music but one day ! I’m currently working with Hot Money and a few producers from the online beats world .
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
