Showcasing the new female talent Roma, who effortlessly laces her vocals on the catchy number, ‘Tere Bin‘ is a young, fresh and feel-good pop track, releasing on 16th October on 4Play Recordings.
Speaking of her debut single, Roma says:
Music has been my childhood passion and I always knew that somewhere down the line it would be a part of my life. I’ve been performing for many years, since the age of 11 and now to release my first single ‘Tere Bin’ is a huge step for me and my career.
Roma is from South East London. She is a versatile artist who sings various styles of music in Punjabi, Hindi and English. Over the years she has nurtured her voice with the guidance of her father Mr. Surjit Singh Sagar, who has a Sangeet Vishard in tabla and classical singing. Roma was spotted at a Shankar Ehsaan Loy concert in London, where she attempted to give her demo CD to the Bollywood maestros. Having met the band’s manager, who heard the demo and showed a keen interest in her music, he connected Roma with British Asian hit maker Rishi Rich.
Working with Rishi Rich has been a wish for years and I’ve always been a fan of his work. He has an incredible eye for new talent and has worked with some of the biggest names in the British Asian scene and kick started their careers. So to have him produce my debut single is a blessing.
As well as keeping up to date with her musical side, Roma studied a Law degree. Juggling between two career options Roma decided that she wanted to follow her creative side and become a professional artist. She recently started training in classical music. Her first vocals were recorded for a Shabad CD (religious Punjabi hymns) called ‘Gurbani da Sagar’ which was for the memory of her grandparents in 2012. The release was distributed by one of the leading music labels in India, T-Series. After receiving positive feedback for her first recording experience, it was clear she had a fresh voice and something to give to the music industry.
The release of ‘Tere Bin‘ (I Just Want) marks the debut of a new, young and versatile talent. Roma promises to be an exciting and enchanting breakthrough female artist. ‘Tere Bin‘ (I Just Want) released 16th October on iTunes via 4Play Recordings.
