TOGETHER APART with NAZNEEN RAHMAN
Hello Nazneen! Thank you for spending some time with us today! Tell us about your latest creative endeavor!
2020 has been such a strange year. I wanted to remember all the ways it altered us and our lives. 'Together Apart' was the result. It's a real-time exploration of lockdown with songs and stories set to music that I wrote during the two months we were locked down in the UK.
On a scale from 1-10… How driven are you?
About 8. I like to be useful.
What is your spirit animal and why?
A gazelle - small but agile.
What was the first experience in your life, when you knew you were destined for this career path?
I don't remember a time when there wasn't a soundtrack of new songs going on in my head. I was an adult before I realized this was unusual!
How important is “luck” in your career?
Luck is very important, but you can make yourself lucky through your actions.
What have you found to be 100% true about success?
I have to be 100% true to my path. Whenever I've strayed from what feels right to me, it has not gone well.
If you could meet any successful person in your career who would it be and why?
Just one? That's tough. Bjork I think, she is so fearlessly creative. I was once in the same room as her, but bottled it and ran away without saying anything.
