Sanjaya Malakar checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@sanjayaitsreallyme) on Sunday (January 25), talking with fans about his new EP ‘Dancing to the Music In My Head’ and book ‘Dancing to the Music in My Head: Memoirs of the People’s Idol’, both released last Tuesday. The ‘American Idol’ season six finalist writes:
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve written to you guys. I’ve been really busy this last few months. As some of you may have heard, my EP and my book came out on amazon.com on January 20th. I’ve been doing a lot of promotion for that as well as continuing to work in the studio. The EP has five songs that I wrote with a few co-writers including my sister, Shyamali and my cousin, Camila. I’m working with a producer here in New York named Gary Haase. He’s been helping me to capture the world sound that I put in my music, but also comfortably fuse that with hints of R&B, Jazz, and Rock. He’s introduced me to extremely talented local writers and musicians. Everyone has made this time so much fun and I’m really proud to be able to call myself an author and an artist.
