Five Questions With UK Songstress Sunaree

Embracing an essence of non-conformity, Sunaree isn’t afraid to break the mold. The Northampton native provides her very own remix of Post Malone ‘Rockstar’, where she creates a unique spin on a classic. Entwining a melodic flow with the hypnotic instrumental, Sunaree demonstrates her eclectic repertoire.

Having experienced racial abuse due to her multicultural ethnicity at a young age, as well as being caught up in a terrorist attack on her school whilst she was in Saudi Arabia during the 9/11 attacks, she described her experiences as ‘I lived an interesting but miserable childhood”.  Helping her get through these events she took solace into music, which spurred a passion for the art itself.

Back in 2015 she took a confident leap and decided to move from Thailand to London to focus fully on her music, where she is able to use this as the platform to share her story. Pushing boundaries with a mission to help other young people who don’t feel like they fit in to feel more secure in themselves. She aims to flip the script and allow her music to become the canvas where she can fully express herself on.

What’s got the music industry abuzz across the globe is the singer’s amazing remix of Post Malone’s Rockstar which Sunaree made her own…check out the visual…

About her music career

Sunaree: ‘”I came here to win, not trying to fit in”

The Hype Magazine got the sultry singer to weigh in on a few things from across the big pond

From the outside looking in, tell us about the artist Sunaree!

Haha okay! Sunaree is vibrant, not afraid to be different, she’s a black sheep.

Do you feel your current project is the best introduction to you as an artist?

Absolutely yes. I feel like I’ve finally found my sound and how I want to put my message out there. I’m all about positive energy and overcoming troubled times and that’s what I put into my music.

Obviously, racism isn’t local to any city or country, how did your early experiences as a mixed race person inspire your journey into music?

At that time, music was my only way to escape from the negativity of the bullying and stuff. I got bullied hard every day and I would come back home from school and watch MTV by myself pretending to be Destiny’s Child. I would go straight to my notepad and start writing and expressing myself on a piece of paper to shut down all of the bullying voices in my head. I remembered when I was 13, I had a comment from an adult telling me that If only I wasn’t mixed with my black side I would have a bright future looool. That got me heated up badly and I wanted to punch his face haha. From there, It made want to aspire people who feel like they don’t belong to a certain group or feel like they are the black sheep that’s its okay to be different because you’re a BADASS in your own way!

What’s on your horizon for 2018?

Putting in the work, have fun making and putting more music out, I’d also love to do a couple collabs, perform loads and go on tour, meet and connect with my supporters.

The Hype Magazine wants to know: What’s been your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?! Or “WTF?!” moment thus far in your career?

My WTF moment happened backstage at the Wireless festival where I ended up meeting artist’s like Fetty Wap, Chance the Rapper and Post Malone. For a young girl from a small village in Thailand growing up on MTV to being so close to the action definitely had me pinching myself!
