Small Chit Chat Interview With UREED
Q: Tell Us About your band ‘UREED’ & How you came into Music Industry?
A: Apart from managing various bands and being involved with event management I discovered my interest in making music and love for song writing,I released my first track called “chahat” in August 2007, after which I decided on working on an album, there began my search for a counterpart. Finally I started work on the album in July 2008 with Jonathan. Thus UREED(the band) was born.
Q: Tell Us About Your Debut Song ‘Chahat’ And 2nd Single ‘Zameer’ ?
A: I wrote Chahat when I was going through a time of despair, I guess I needed some self motivation, and there it was composed the song with a long time friend Waqas Naeem made a demo. Sam”Akash” heard and liked the composition, thus I recorded the song. Chahat featured Sam on guitars. The song received decent applause and sufficient downloads to motivate me with my interest in music…..Zameer on the other had is a complete change in mood, its about ones conversation with his self conscience. The song is preety aggressive as far as I can say, ill leave it for everyone else to judge it. ?
Q: Tell us about your debut video and What are your expectations from it?
A: I’ve shot 2 videos so far. I’m not sure which one will be released first as both are on the edit table. One is of Zameer and the other is of a song called hum naheen.

A: Well I’m looking forward to release my music videos soon. Expected release for the album would early January 2009.
Q: We have heard that you are not releasing your album under any label, why?
A: Releasing the album through a record label is not entirely off the cards but I’m not willing to wait very long. If so then I’ve planned to release the album independently on my own. I might even just release the album online.
Q: How has Pakistani media changed or improved in your view? What are it’s furthur requirements for a better future and environment?
A: Pakistani media has improved massively over the years. But I think they need to get out of Karachi and focus on Pakistan.

A: Education is the vital tool for any person in the world. I still wish I could spare time and money for university.
Q:Some of the artists have already chosen that very line! So, a day in life that you are looking to ever since your childhood?
A: Not really , music is passion but I know it can’t feed me so I have a job and operate an event management company. Though ill keep making music till I live.
Q:the music concerts panorama in Pakistan is blackened out, how we can make it bright again?
A: There’s nothing we can do about it, we should remain united that’s all I can say. Until the security issues are resolved once and for all , this industry can’t progress and prosper.
Q:“You can not put your soul into music till you fall and fall apart in love.” What do you think about it? 😛
A: I would agree to the statement to a certain degree.

A: In a country with not many record labels and no piracy laws the internet stands as an artists best companion
Q:would you like to say something to your co-artists and any message for our upcoming musicians?
