HUSH HUSH BIZ SINGLE REVIEW
The American singer-songwriter Aneesa is a rising star on the global music scene.
After winning the title of Miss Michigan Teen USA 2020 she released her debut single, Bad Thing, in January of 2020. In just four months, Bad Thing’s official video has accumulated over 100k streams on YouTube; an amazing achievement for a new artist.
Aneesa began her musical journey when she was only eight, taking guitar lessons and joined the youth choir. At the age of fourteen, she began to write songs on her grandfather’s twelve-string guitar and soon after was invited to perform on the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour in Lexington, Kentucky. From there she turned her passion for music to her purpose in life. Aneesa attended IMTA (International Model and Talent Association Convention in New York) and won a scholarship to record an original song. Aneesa has just released the follow-up to Bad Thing, a track called Tough Times, a moving pop-rock track with lyrics that are very relevant to our challenging times. The song was written for her ailing father and enabled Aneesa to respond and reflect on personal trauma. After her father underwent a medical crisis, Aneesa, who was living with him at the time, turned her attention to founding a non-profit organization Music4M.I.R.A.C.L.E., which advocates the benefits of music therapy.
Tough Times is an exhilarating track with unforgettable melodies, impressive production and a stellar vocal performance. As Aneesa says of the song, ‘Tough Times don’t last, but tough people do’ is a phrase my dad always told me growing up. When he became ill, I reminded him of that phrase. I knew that the message he always told me would have a greater effect if it was in a song. The song resonates with my father very much and gave him his light again. Tough Times shares equal importance all over the world during this pandemic and after’. The new track, co-written with Justine Blazer (another rising star of the US music scene) will no doubt be a massive success for this multi-talented singer-songwriter.
