Skylar Grey Interview | PopCrush ::
Your voice deserves to be heard, since it’s so haunting and icy. And by icy, I mean it in a good way!
I like icy. It’s about making good art. I don’t have a voice like people in the pop industry and you can’t make me have a different voice. I will just create art. Here’s my thing: Alanis Morissette didn’t sound like anyone when she came out. It sounded like alternative music. Then, being on the radio, it turned into pop music, which changes over time. Pop music is an ever-changing, evolving thing.
‘Invinsible,’ at first glance, is confusing as a title, but upon a second look, it’s a thought-provoking and intentional word and spell play. How did you come up with it?
‘Invinsible’ spelled with an ‘s’ was Marilyn Manson’s idea. I was talking to him about how I am not invisible anymore. That’s how I once felt and there are songs that explore that weakness factor, but at the end of the album, Skylar Grey is strong and invincible. I spell it with an ‘s’ since one word encompasses that journey. I was like ‘Yeah, thank you’ to Manson.
Are you still actively writing songs for other artists or are you on hiatus?
I am taking a break from it. There is not enough time in the day and I don’t have enough energy. At some point, I will for people again but I will be really selective. I don’t have a dream to be Kara DioGuardi. That has never been my dream. I would rather do some film scoring with someone.
Alex Da Kid also posted Part 1 of a 2-part interview with Pensado’s Place that he shot recently. He talks working on Skylar Grey tracks several times, including mentioning that the mix of “Invisible” that was premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show last month was essentially a demo version, and the final album version will be mixed differently. His interview starts at the 19:40 mark below.
