Born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, and now living in Brooklyn, NY, SIRMA is a singer, songwriter and producer who blends Alternative Pop with Electronica.
Working mostly out of her home studio in Brooklyn, SIRMA has been on a mission to become a self-sufficient artist since her debut EP, “To Love”, released in 2017. With her very first self-produced Turkish single, “Belki Bir Gün”, landing on #3 on the Spotify Viral 50 Turkey chart and her follow-up single “Coming Undone” making its global radio debut on Apple Music’s Beats 1 with a stellar introduction from Brooke Reese in 2018, SIRMA, growing with confidence, turned her focus to not only writing, performing, recording and producing her material, but also engineering, mixing and mastering it.
While her entirely self-made single, “Put Your Faith In Me”, crafted in solitude and released in 2019, showcased SIRMA’s vast skillset when she’s in full creative control, her collaborations with guest artist and producer Mallow shines a new light on her abilities as a vocalist and sound designer. SIRMA is not only credited as the performer, songwriter and co-producer on both “On” and “24 Hours”, but as the sole mixing and mastering engineer as well.
SIRMA's growing experience is even more evident in her latest single, "How Could We Ever Know", which she created in one day at her parents' house during quarantine with a modest setup in Istanbul.
After graduating from Berklee College of Music, and landing two collaborations with Illenium and Said the Sky as a featured artist, titled “Drop Our Hearts” and “Drop Our Hearts (Part II)”, SIRMA spent her time working in the music industry as a jingle singer, sound engineer, topliner and more recently, an educator and writer.
In October 2019, she launched an interactive course, titled Modern Pop Vocal Production, in collaboration with the online music school, Soundfly, which she has not only written the full content for, but also appeared in the videos and audio examples of, breaking down her process as an artist and a vocal producer. The course is embellished with several excerpts from SIRMA’s entire discography and features behind the scenes footage from the production and recording process of “On” and “24 Hours”.
SIRMA is planning on spending the rest of 2020 releasing collaborative singles and working on her debut album.
