We loved having Skylar Stecker drop by our office and give us a sneak peek at one of the songs on her new EP, and now it's finally coming out! The singer EXCLUSIVELY opened up to us about her experience making Firecracker.
She says the hardest part was getting everything to sound exactly the way she wanted.
"I'm a perfectionist. So I'll have to go back a million times like, 'Change this! Change this!' And my mom will be like, 'Are you sure? I think it's set. It sounds okay.' And I'm like, 'No, everything has to be perfect!' A lot of times it's annoying to other people, but in the end it turns out great. It takes a lot of time, because you have to focus and go through it as if you weren't a listener."
But she's excited to show everyone her new, original stuff — especially because she got her start releasing covers and working on collaborations with YouTube stars like Matty B.
"It's my chance to really show everyone who I am as an artist and what my music is going to look like and feel like from now on. I'm really excited for everyone to hear and accept me as an artist, and get a feel of who I am."
It definitely sounds like she will!
Her EP comes out January 27th. Are you excited for her release? Tell us in the comments!
