– 10 QUESTIONS WE ASK EVERYBODY –
Metal Divas: Please tell us what got you into music and describe your early days and journey thus far to be a vocalist.
Sanna: What got me into music was my family, everyone was involved more or less and it was only natural that I would be infected as well. I wouldn’t stop listening to music all day long discovering new kinds and styles up to the day I discoverd rock and metal! That was it for me, I found my cup of tea. It was then I started singing non stop and realised I freakin’ love it! When I graduated from school I started looking for ways to do this more often and that’s where I found my band and started styding singing.
Metal Divas: In your opinion, what is the essence of music in general?
Sanna: I believe the essence of music is feelings, expression, rhythm, groove, passion. Music is life.
Metal Divas: Describe any “before the show” rituals you might have.
Sanna: What I do before any show is to warm up my voice as good as possible and do some breathing techniques that help me relax and shake of the edge and the adrenaline running through my entire body!
Metal Divas: What is the most memorable moment of your career so far?
Sanna: Playing at the Metal Female Voices Festival in 2012 with my band, being featured at the French Hard Rock Magazine and of course joining the most awesome group of fellow ladies musicians Eve’s Apple!
Metal Divas: What is a rule — whether it’s a law, societal standard, or moral code that exists that you think should be broken?
Sanna: I am not familiar that much with any countrie’s law system but what I do know is that I would prefer to have more strict laws concerning the protection of animals and nature.
Metal Divas: Name five things you can’t live without.
1 – Chocolate
2 – Music
3 – Food
4 – My family
5 – My band
Metal Divas: Share any funny story while on the road or any crazy request received from a fan.
Sanna: I must confess that I haven’t had any crazy requests from fans so far but there is one time, I wouldn’t call it crazy, maybe a little bit akward, where a fan wanted to lift me in his arms and take a pic instead of a just side by side normal one!
Metal Divas: What do you do to keep your voice in good shape?
Sanna: I try to use it as less as possible! I know it sounds crazy but I try to sing only when necessary and speak only when I need to, the more someone uses their voices the more tired the vocals chords get. Other than that I try to get a good night slep, drink a lot of water and doing regular voice exercise to stay fit!
Metal Divas: Please give any advice to young aspiring vocalists who wanna enter the music industry.
Sanna: Backle up, it’s a heavy rollercoaster!
Metal Divas: Ten years from now you will be…
Sanna:…still rockin’ !
