ARTIST NAME: Maryam Zadeh
SONG TITLE: Wild Child
RELEASE DATE: February 2019
Zadeh’s professional music career began in 2005 when she became the front singer for the Canadian Dance Band TAPPS whose song “My Forbidden Lover” went on to become one of the best-selling Hi-NRG records worldwide reaching the #2 spot single in Holland on the dance chart.
For thirteen years, Zadeh toured with the band that was part of her childhood musical backdrop.
In 2018, Zadeh left the band to pursue a solo music career. As she candidly stated “It was a wild and fun ride but I felt it was limiting my own unique artistic expression.
Currently, Zadeh resides in Arcadia, California. She is in the studio recording her first album entitled “The Children’s Hour”. This album is a compilation of experimental tracks that can best be described as a nostalgic blend of Rock, Cabaret, and Dark Wave embellished with lyrics and melodies that evoke darkness, romance, and awakening of the soul.
Discuss your existence.
To create music that has a nostalgic essence to it and touches people’s hearts.
State your favorite genre of music and your reason.
Glam Rock – It’s my favorite genre because it’s the perfect musical bed to make a fashion statement, be flirty and sexy, and make people dance.
Tell us your experience as a musician.
I became the front singer for the 80’s HI Energy band TAPPS in 2005.
The original members are from Canada and disbanded. I still tour as the front singer singing their worldwide hit My Forbidden Lover, Hurricane, and Burning With Fire.
Tell us the theme of your song.
It’s a cover from The Doors. I understand it to be a homage to Jim Morrison’s girlfriend with lyrical content that describes her spiritually. I love it. It resonates with me.
Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.
I would like to thank Alan Coelho the founding member of the band TAPPS who believed in me and encouraged me to go all the way.
Tell us your future goals.
To produce some dance tracks with elements of 80’s synths and Glam Rock put together.

She is ready to be printed on mocks, T-shirts, sweaters, posters, billboards, and pillowcases. What an iconic shot in red!
If you want to play it safe and still have some money left in your well-endowed pockets, you might want to throw some of it to the wild child that is Maryam Zadeh.
She did this cover of The Doors classic and seems to be the ideal reincarnation of the spirit and soul of Jim Morrison. I mean, just look at her promo picture! Just as charismatic and ready to be printed on a well-selling T-shirt. But also vocal wise she might get the feels right…
Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.
Well, there is an 80’s feel to a lot of my music and so I know my fans who love 80’s dance music appreciate it.
As far as my new journey into experimenting with elements of Glam Rock and Psychedelic rock, I am not sure what the future holds, but I do know as an artist I have to stay true to my vision.
State the artists you cherish most and your reason.
Jim Morrison – a muse that helps me find my own voice in singing.
Freddie Mercury – His early years in Queen inspires me to take a new direction in my music.
Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.
I write lyrics based on my life. I play with words and write lyrics that bring an emotional feel but also have style. I use catchy lines from movies to write songs.
Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.
Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people dance or making the music with a genuine message that inspires them.
It’s whatever I feel to do in the creative moment. I feel that I can do both at the same time.
Go into detail on the recording of this song.
I loved this song but knew that Wild Child was a challenging song to remake as a cover.
I felt keeping it simple was the only way fans of The Doors would accept it.
I just wanted to pay homage to my muse, Jim Morrison.
Discuss your music performance.
I love to have fun on stage and not take it seriously. What’s most important is I want the audience to interact and feel they are part of the show.
