Serena has a great passion – her music. She is a multitalented singer and songwriter and has had a notable career so far working with some of the best internationally acclaimed musicians and artists.
Serena’s first album, titled “Sui Generis” was released in 2013. She worked with Kenny Jones (credits include: The Smiths, Robbie Williams, Natalie Imbruglia, Chaka Khan) and Eric Rupert (Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson) to create a debut album which was diverse in style and through which she explored a variety of genres to try and figure out the direction she wanted to take.
Serena later went on to work with Andy Whitmore (Peter Andre, Atomic Kitten, Elton John, Terence Trent D’arby) to create her first EP called “Gorgeous”. This was the beginning of a catalogue of music which has grown and grown.
Deciding to explore and draw on her Indian roots, Serena began to work with Asian producers. In 2013, she teamed up with Sunny Viswanath whose music integrated Indian classical music with electronic music sounds, world music genres and traditional orchestral arrangements. Her EP generated an interest in India, the UK and in the US and she was even offered a part in an Indian film through Sunny.
In 2015, Serena crossed the ocean again, this time going west to the US to work with internationally acclaimed producer Rishi Rich (Teddy Riley, Jay Sean). The result was a critically acclaimed EP called “Dream” which the Asian music scene welcomed with open arms. The title track featured on the BBC Asian Network Official Downloads Charts for several weeks.
Serena is now taking her singing career in a totally new direction with an increasingly urban sound, marrying grime beats with sweet R&B infused vocals.
Her new single, ‘Drop Top’, produced by Ayo Beatz, has been described as an “infectious single” and employs the talents of underground rapper Ms Banks, a frequent collaborator with big names like Tinie Tempah. The video for ‘Drop Top’ also features a cameo from independent artist and founder of State of Mind Records, Loick Essien.
