In 1994 was the year of change for Intan. She and her family moved to Los Angeles. It was then where she was exposed to all the different types of music. Mainly finding out about R&B, Jazz, Neo Soul & Hip Hop. A couple years later, the internet movement has started to open up the doors for a lot of people to promote their music. She became interested in developing herself as an artist. She created a website; hooked up the microphone to the computer, and posted up some recordings of herself singing covers songs.
At sixteen, she wrote her first song and recorded an acapella of “It Was A Mistake” which brought in the interest of Jarrod Kawahara from Midknight Angel Records. They started to work together, with the help of Shin and produced, “If I’d” from a cover track by Brian Culbertson.
From there, she started to join online networking sites and was contacted by Sterling G. CEO of Signature Entertainment. He wanted to see Intan as a songwriter, hands her a few tracks to write too, so came a long “Last Night”, “Better Off” and “Spirits Don’t Break”. A song writer since her teens and have produced works with various independent labels.
In 2006, she started to work with Darrius Garrett a.k.a Mista Sniper. She featured in his song “Alright” and they collaborated on song “Change” also with Kashaun Johnson which was submitted to Paramount Pictures for a movie entitled “Freedom Writers”. The song “Change” was chosen and re-worked by producer Lou “Buster” Brown, Teak and Dee Underdue which made it as a part of the end credits track for the film.
She feels very blessed to be a part of a creative field and to have been given so many opportunities to pursue it. Her inspirations are from the people that she encounters, those who struggles and fight for what they want. This is only the beginning of her journey. Her ambition is to break those racial boundaries that still linger around the music industry. Create music to feed the soul.
