EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Skylar Stecker

Skylar Stecker is an American singer-songwriter and actress. The 15-year-old is the youngest artist to be signed to Cherrytree Records.

We speak exclusively to Skylar Stecker about her new music, future plans and much more.

How does it feel to be the youngest artist to sign to Cherrytree Records?
It feels exciting and rewarding to know that my passion and knowledge of music stood out regardless of my age.

Do you have more music coming out soon?
Yes! I have a ton of new music that I’ve been working on and can’t wait to share it. I’m currently going through the most difficult part which is narrowing it down to which ones will make the album.

If you could collab with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Hands down Beyonce or Bruno Mars!

Do you plan to tour in 2018?
Yes I am definitely planning on going on tour in 2018. I’m looking at doing headline and support dates. I can’t wait to get back out on the road.

What venue would you love to do a show at?
Staples Center! I have performed the National Anthem there many times for the Clippers and Lakers but being able to perform my own material on that stage one day would be a dream come true!

What has been one moment in your career so far, where you’ve stopped and thought I can’t believe I’ve actually done this?
Being the youngest artist to have two #1 songs on the Billboard Dance Chart feels pretty good! Performing on the Today Show was an awesome moment as well!

We all love a bit of Netflix when we’re not busy, what do you do to chill out, do you have a go-to TV show?
I am obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy and Law and Order. I love them both and don’t ever want them to end!

How did you feel when you were told that your song ‘How Did We’ featured in the film EverythingEverything?
The moment was surreal! I loved the song and really felt connected to it right away. So when I got the call from my manager telling me that they had chosen my version I cried tears of joy!

Do you find it amazing how your song ‘Crazy Beautiful’ is played in Sims 4 as a track?
Yes! I played Sims for most of my childhood so having my song on there was a “crazy beautiful” moment. 

Playing Ridley in Austin and Ally must have been a very exciting opportunity for you, what was your favorite part of filming?
My favorite part of filming was the process of learning how to become the character. As a songwriter its about what I want to show the world about who I am. But acting is the opposite. You have to remove yourself and really become the character. It was challenging but also a lot of fun!

What has the response been like from your fans?
My fans are so amazing! They support whatever I am doing and are truly the best cheerleaders that I could ever ask for! I feel so fortunate to have them in my corner!

Finally, is there anything you’d like to say to your fans?
Thank you! Without your unconditional love and support, there is no way that I could keep doing what I do. You make me strive to be the best I can be and to stay true to myself. I love you all so much and I promise not to disappoint you!
