Do you believe that anything is possible? That you can live life to the fullest, here and now, daring greatly? Therése Neaimé’s answer to these questions has always been a passionate ‘Yes’. Growing up in Sweden as the daughter of a Swedish mother and a Lebanese father, the singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and motivational speaker decided early on to take charge of her own destiny.
For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!
I believe my music is full of energy, and a grove that will make your body wanna dance. It´s genuine with a lyric straight from the heart. It´s based on my heritage with an salty Arabic / latin flavour. A modern pop/edm sound.
When you are writing a song, where do you draw inspiration from? Or what topics do you like to sing about?
The inspiration mostly comes from my own every day life. I like to share from my heart to make it genuin and real. I sing about topics that moves and inspired me. There are songs about love but also songs about living every day like the last, since the days go by so fast anyway. Songs about losing a near relative or about standing up for yourself.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I love spending time with my children and friends. I think it´s so important to keep playing also as a grown up. The other day my son gave me one of the most beautiful compliments. He said, - Today was a great day mom. You were so playfull! Warmed my heart. I also love any kind of sports. Growing up as a track & fields athlete, sports has always been very close at heart. I love running, bicycling and cross training.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? Or is there a song that means a lot to you that you can describe for us?
It´s was a song called ”How could you leave me”. It was the first song I wrote after leaving everything behind, moving to Hollywood following my dreams. The song was written from my, then current boyfriends perspectiv since I was the one leaving. Later the very same song ended up as the sound track to the movie ”Kärlekens språk” (The language of love.)
What is your dream gig? Is there a gig that you really want that would be the ultimate show for you?
This question puts a smile on my face since I´ve been fortunate to experience many of my dream gigs on stage already. Opening for Simpy Red around Europe was one series of amazing gigs. Being the headlining act at the Cape Town and Copenhagen Pride festivals in 2019-2020 was another. All of them in front of a large crowd. My wish and dream gig would therefore be to keep spreading my music further, performing my original music globaly. In my shows I also like to do a mix between my music and my own leacture ”From dream to reality”. Something I believe gives the audience a further picture to my lifestory and songs which will hopefully inspire.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
Since I love the creative process, there´s always a song in the making So yes, new material on the way. We already plan ahead for the fall and the next release. Hopefully it will be a strong follower to the current single, ”Dance Love” which we just released.
