Today Sima tells us about "Breaking Down The Walls" from her debut album "This Is My Truth," which is being released this week. Here is the story:
The Lyrics for "Breaking Down The Walls" was inspire by feeling of separation growing up in Israel to moving to NYC on my own not knowing anyone and trying to fit in . Also I wanted to inspire people see how negative believes and perceptions can create such barriers, walls between us. Those wall separate us in so many level if it's in relationship, our family, friends, politics in any expect of our life those walls we built for so many years to protect ourself from what we believe to be true and right and sometimes you lose ourself we forget who we really are, who we supposed to be our high propose in life. I felt the need of unity for my self feeling lost and for others.
Also personally leaving everything I knew to live my dreams come with high stakes, fears and sacrifice I had to make which wasn't easy I felt I believed in something that allot of people around me even my family couldn't understand and it wasn't easy to keep the trust when everything around says no you can't when I have many challenges to deal with on top of being in such a competitive and hard business.
The Video was inspired by me living home living Israel everything behind me. you can see me as a little girl dreaming about singing the joy I get from it and the tape was a symbol of my dreams being crashed and thrown away . The video is a realization of your past or things that hold you back or might will if you stay and sometime you get to make a choice by packing and leaving it all behind so you can be happy to live your life, be yourself and have sense of freedom. not living the life other people expect you to live. taking owner ship to the life you want to live.
