Serah

Artist    Lyricist

Poetic songwriter-singer , Serah creates music that explores many of the most important aspects of our lives including love, peace, harmony, success/failure, relationships, religion, nature, connectedness, healing and emotions. Serah explores these and other important themes with contemporary music that showcases her own unique folk-pop style that also blends together elements of new age, jazz and African world music.

Serah’s music draws from her experiences of having lived on both coasts of the United States as well as in Canada, France and Africa. She works closely with a wide variety of musicians from around the world which gives her music an international flavor.

Serah says “I can say what I feel best in song lyrics. I like to use imagery and metaphors with layers of meaning for anyone who wishes to dig a bit deeper. A person can either relate the song to their own life – or enjoy it like a short story, and its meaning will be somewhat different for every listener.”
