FRESH: ‘You Saved Me’ – Neave Zaria

Neave Zaria says “You Saved Me”

Neave Zaria is an emerging star from just outside London. She’s been performing from a very young age and has been creating quite a buzz to industry ears – so much so that she was invited to attend X Factor bootcamp aged just 14. Despite the producers attempts to change her mind, Neave turned it down to experience other ‘life’ adventures. She has no regrets and hasn’t looked back. She released her debut single, “If I See You” in March 2020: the track was play listed all around the world and has chalked up an amazing 40K streams and over 70k views on YouTube. She now releases her second single, “You Saved Me”.

Neave was a musical prodigy from a very young age singing for family and friends for many years and developing her unique trademark smoky soulful voice. Young Neave aspired to be a great vocalist and the likes of great female artists such as Amy Winehouse had a profound effect on her – as she says herself: “I can remember singing along to Amy when I was about 7 or 8, she had one of the greatest female voices I’ve ever heard. It still gives me goosebumps now. I want my music to inspire people like the great singers inspired me. I want to touch people emotionally because that’s what music is to me, it’s a language of the soul”.

“You Saved Me” is accompanied by a video shot on the cool streets of Shoreditch in London, UK. It was inspired by a meeting with an individual whose positive inspiration pulled her out of a tough time in her life. The song is also another powerful and emotional showcase for her soulful voice, which has been compared to Adele. Neave is continuing to record material and has several more songs lined up for release over the coming months, with an EP due in the autumn. Neave Zaria is a unique vocal talent and unquestionably a star in waiting.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
