One of Queensland’s most powerful voices, Sahara Beck released her 3rd EP, Queen Of Hearts at the end of 2019. Crafted by ARIA-nominated producer Tony Buchen (Mansionair, Courtney Barnett, Montaigne), it’s fearless, flamboyant, and brimming with seductive art-pop, with Sahara’s voice shining front and center.
As a Songwriter, Sahara has had multiple placings in the International Songwriting Competition, as well as the Nashville-based Unsigned, Find Comp and in 2019 she placed 3rd in the Illustrious Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition. Sahara has won numerous Qld Music Awards as well as the Carol Lloyd Award – affording Sahara the opportunity to record an album with Konstantin Kersting (Mallrat, Tones and I, The Jungle Giants), which she hopes to release in 2022.
A natural entertainer, she’s graced the stages of Woodford Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Blues Festival, The Falls Festival, Bigsound, and scored highly sought-after tours supporting Bishop Briggs, The Rubens, Kim Churchill, Ball Park Music, The Cat Empire, and Ocean Alley.

 

 

LYRICS:

 

You fall asleep
Won’t you dream of me
I got nowhere else to be
So get under your sheets

 

Softly touch my cheek
Make me feel so weak
Cause you have a hold on me
Please set me free

 

It’s the way that your eyes lay upon me
They ignite me and I’m set free
All I want is for you just to crave me
All I want is, all I want is you
It’s the way that you smile when you’re happy
I could worship it endlessly
All I want is for you to excite me
All I want is, all I want is you

 

What a sorry treat
When she calls you sweet
It makes me want to scream
Why won’t you look at me?
Everything I do I do just for you
So if you don’t want me
Why won’t you set me free?

 

It’s the way that your eyes lay upon me
They ignite me and I’m set free
All I want is for you just to crave me
All I want is, all I want is you
It’s the way that you smile when you’re happy
I could worship it endlessly
All I want is for you to excite me
All I want is, all I want is you

 

How did you do it? How did you do it to me?
Turn me into someone else,
I can’t recognize myself
How do you do it?
How did you do it to me?
I’ll be anything you need
I’ll be anyone you need

 

It’s the way that your eyes lay upon me
They ignite me and I’m set free
All I want is for you just to crave me
All I want is, all I want is you

 

It’s the way that you smile when you’re happy
I could worship it endlessly
All I want is for you to excite me
All I want is, all I want is you
All I want is, all I want is you

 

 

Discuss the concept of mixing genres together.
I’m not sure that I have ever intentionally mixed genres actually…I think the most important aspect of songwriting is to give your full attention to whatever the song needs. The song is boss, and it guides me.

 

Elaborate on your childhood background.
I grew up in Peregian Beach on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia. I spent the majority of my childhood in this beautiful and nurturing community. My dad is a Baker and my mum has a Cafe there. Whilst it’s a coastal town, I’m not a surfer or a skater but I always loved observing my friends in action and writing songs about them at home.

 

Discuss your music life.
I started writing when I was about thirteen years old. I recorded my very first album not long after with a local musician. I then got hooked and haven’t been able to stop writing or wanting to release my music. I’m not sure if I ever will! It’s a very big part of my identity and me, and it makes me feel grounded. Some super special highlights for me since I began would have to be touring with the Beach Boys, Ball Park Music, Paul Kelly, Ocean Alley, The Cat Empire, and Bishop Briggs. Plus playing festivals like Woodford Folk Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival.

 

Elaborate on your recording experience in the studio.
Four years ago (2017) I flew myself to Los Angeles and met Tony Buchen (Google him, he’s done some really cool stuff) – a producer that had in my opinion added punch to The Preachers and Montaigne’s work. I was really happy with what I had found in his way of making music. I had heaps of songs I was ready to record but I wanted to make sure I used the right producer considering these new songs were so different from anything I had done before, I needed to know they were being treated and delivered exactly as they needed to be to avoid any confusion on the listeners end to what I had become. The first time I came into the studio we talked through the songs I had ready to go and decided what better way to speed up the getting close in a working friendship than to actually start a new song completely from scratch. The first song we wrote was “Crave Me”.

 

Discuss the songwriting process of this song.
We started with the chords on this song which for some reason made me think of this lullaby I heard in a German movie I watched a lot growing up (my family is German), so I wrote the melody as a simple lullaby. That chordal arpeggio on the strings also has that kind of dream-like, quality. Lyrically, I guess we created a kind of lullaby of desperation. This song means different things to me now. On one hand, I’m singing it about everyone I’ve ever given my everything to that didn’t return the feelings or gesture. On the other hand, I sing it to the music industry, my biggest desire.

 

Tell us what is special about the song that can hook a listener.
The song is the perfect anthem for when you’re chasing someone or something and you have finally gotten to the point where you recognize how desperate you might look or feel but never the less continue wanting that someone or something. You need it and you don’t care how it makes you look.

 

Discuss what you consider in a hit song.
I like to have a big chorus that you can sing along to. I think there are many different elements that make a great pop song but the most obvious is that it needs to feel honest and real and it needs to have a special connection with the listener. I’m not sure you can manufacture that. I wouldn’t say I’ve ever had a hit song before but the songs I have written that have received the most attention are the ones that I feel were the most honest…

 

Tell us your opinion on melody.
Melody is really important to me. It often comes to me before lyrics do. I feel like listening to a song for the first time is like meeting a person, the melody is when you see them for the first time… are they beautiful, are they cute, are they intimidating? The lyrics are when you start speaking with that person that can be the factor that decides if you continue to stay around that person/continue listening to the song. If there’s no personality there, you’re not going to hang around and speak to a brick wall.

 

Elaborate on what you are doing to develop your music career.
I’m always writing more songs. And I have been writing with a lot of other people. One particular song that will come out later this year is a collaboration with an international artist. It’s going to be sick! I am sitting on a lot of recorded music, which I’m really excited about releasing, and we have a long-term plan around it. Before COVID, I had lots of opportunities to try out new songs and sell music at gigs in order to pay for the next recordings. But my turnaround in between records is now a lot longer due to lack of gigs providing me with a musical income. The uncertainty within the industry around COVID has not helped either. But I enjoy interacting with fans over different social media platforms. And I have taken a sideways step in order to grow my audience by working with other performing arts collectives. The project is called BITE CLUB and it’s a show I have developed with this amazing group called Briefs Factory International. A kind of Circus, Burlesque, Cabaret, and Comedy collective… They tour internationally so I’m hoping I will be able to bring my music to other parts of the world as part of this show.

 

List your greatest supporters.
My mum, brother, dad, my manager, and my best friend.

 

Compare a music career to a non-music career.
A music career is not a consistent lifestyle at all. You don’t have the same set time and place to be at every day. Our working hours are all over the shop. It’s up to you to know where you want to end up and to try and make that happen by carving out your own path as there is no rulebook either. Now that COVID has happened I would say the difference in those two types of careers is huge as one of them is on the brink of extinction.

 

Discuss your music background.
I grew up learning classical piano; I then learned guitar and trumpet. My parents would always put on music and tell me the story behind it before we listened to it, mum loved putting Buena Vista Social Club on and my Dad introduced me more to old school singers like Judy Garland. My taste in music is pretty much anything dramatic. I like when you can really feel the emotion in a song.

 

State your future goals.
My biggest goal over the last ten years has been to play overseas. I would love to tour different countries and experience that musical connection with different people and different cultures.

 

Discuss what has changed in the music business.
Everything has changed. I have had to get a Cafe job because I can’t play as much as I need to. Even when we can play, half of the time shows get canceled because someone in that area is sick. Once the shows are canceled, we don’t get money back for flight bookings or accommodation, we just end up losing money for trying to do our jobs, which is supposed to make us money. Meanwhile, of course, football games don’t get hit with any restrictions here in Australia of course, which makes me feel that the music industry has been moved down another 10 notches on the social ladder. The way that the music industry has been treated makes me feel like my job isn’t important and that I’m expected to not complain that I’m slowly watching the career that I created for myself and worked so hard to build over the last ten years just disappear in front of my eyes.

 

Tell us the most important tools for an artist.
I think the most important tool is having time to reflect and use those moments to refresh the writing pad in your head.

 

Elaborate on the song.
When I wrote ‘Crave Me,’ it was about wanting someone or something so badly to want you back. Now with everything going on when I’ve reflected on the lyrics, they mean different things to me. I now think of the chorus as though I’m singing it to my career, “all I want is you”. Music is everything to me and not being able to have a normal career in music has been very depressing. I just want to play my music without it being pulled away from me at the last minute.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.
My name is Sahara Beck and it was my birth name. ‘Crave Me’ is the first song from an EP, which I will release perhaps later in the year. This EP will be a companion to my “Queen of Hearts” EP.

 

Share your press release and review with us.
Produced by ARIA Award nominee Tony Buchen (her Queen of Hearts collaborator) ‘Crave Me’ is a slow-burning firecracker, with Sahara’s soulful powerful voice soaring for the skies. It starts like a lullaby, gliding over dreamy, delicate strings, before igniting into a rousing, defiant declaration of love where she lays everything on the line.
“All I want is for you to excite me, all I want is, all I want is you!” she confesses in the chorus.
Sahara flew herself to Los Angeles in December 2017, to write with Tony (Buchen) whom she’d long admired but had never met, to record in a country she had never visited before in perhaps one of the most overwhelming but exciting cities in the world! It was a pivotal moment for Sahara, and ‘Crave Me’ was the very first song they wrote together.
“We created a lullaby of desperation. This song means different things to me. On one hand, I’m singing it about everyone I’ve ever given my everything to… On the other hand, I sing it to the music industry, my biggest desire. The only thing I’ve ever been sure of is that I love music. I love how it makes me feel and I love that what I create can make others feel something, whether it be sadness, hope, or love” says Sahara.
Sahara’s never been shy about sharing her misadventures in love and life, and ‘Crave Me’ is no exception – it’s as unfiltered as it is enthralling. This girl can certainly spin gold from heartbreak and self-reflection.
‘Crave Me’ is out 1 July 2021 worldwide via Believe. It’s the first offering from an EP Sahara plans to release – a companion piece to the 2019 ‘Queen Of Hearts’ EP.
