1. How did you get into music?

Music was my escape.  I grew up in a "broken" home in a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania.  As a young child I would hide from all the yelling by staying in my room, playing Jewel and learning to write from her. I also grew up listening to Britney Spears, so she has influenced my singing and style immensely.  I knew since age 5 I wanted to be a singer.

I used to be embarrassed to sing in front of my family cause I didn’t want them to make a big deal about it, so it was always my little secret with my friends Lara, Rachel and Samantha.  I would record songs I wrote on cassette tapes and we’d play them, imagining them on the radio. My mom bought me a karaoke machine and I would practice in my room for hours with the volume down really low.  Eventually I started writing almost every day after school and singing in high school pop/rock bands we did for fun.  I was really into musical theatre and choir too.

Music was my past, it’s my present and my future.  I’ve been living in Los Angeles 5 years now pursuing music.  I hope to inspire people to go after what they want no matter what. 

2. What was the inspiration for your latest tunes?

The latest song I released was "Turn Me All Around".  I wrote it in the summer with someone in mind.  It’s a fun dance song and was inspired by Britney Spears, Kaskade, Dr. Luke and Morgan Page.

3. What was the recording process like compared to your latest songs?

I loved working with Nalo Duvalle (Interscope-Snoop Dog, 50 Cent) on this track!  He really produced my vocals up to the next level. It was so hot and dark in the recording booth.  I got to be alone with the song and the tiger painting I did for Nalo on the wall, and let’s not forget my british alter ego who only comes out in the recording booth. Compared to sessions in the past, it was very creative, organized and top quality.

4. Any plans to record a full length album?

Sure!  It’s always been a dream.  For now I’m working on singles.  Check back with me soon! 

5. What inspires you when writing music?

I think about what I want to tell the world with an infectious melody.

6. Who have you enjoyed playing with recently?

My musical friends in our home studios.

7. Who would you most like to sing a song with?

Jesse McCartney.

8.  How does social networking help with your music?

It led me to you!  And I get to connect with my friends and fans on a personal level.  It’s a chance to be real and for everyone to see that I’m a real person with ups and downs, not just a music machine.  For the inside scoop follow me on twitter at @aliciaskymusic and facebook.com/aliciaskymusic .

9. If you could work with any one who would it be?

Dr. Luke, Max Martin,  Morgan Page, Kaskade, Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia. To work with any of these musical geniuses would be a dream come true.

10. Any plans to go overseas and tour?

I’d love to!  At the moment keeping it in the U.S. but I’m definitely open to the possibility in the future!

Circle – The Middle (Monday Records)

Circle album The Middle is dreamlike, it’s alternative, a bit of indie pop and rock. It’s very catchy and put together you have an album that is moving and a joy to the ears. It’s a first class release, the use of male and female vocals is a lovely touch, the use of horn on track 2020 Vision adds to the track which is already upbeat to me. The first two tracks The Middle and my personal favorite Fashion Me a Drum a nice catchy dreamlike pop tune that is use of both male and female vocals is a solid but well used touch of class to track. They both gave my subwoofer a real work out. Gorgeous is an indie rock/pop track with the use of the guitar and the way it is structured. The female vocals are a nice touch. I Believe it is another track that it is well written, screams radio play and commercial use as well. I love the use of horn. It’s got a nice pop feel to it, catchy and well sung and performed. 2020 Vision is more of an indie rock song but both male and female vocals just work. Good solid tune. Hold has the great use of the synth at the start of the track and through out the song, the use of the female vocals just work alongside the male vocals. Solid musicianship ensure this is a solid song. Oh My Heart is almost dreamlike and such a beautiful song, that is well written and performed. Half Race Girls is another solid tune, use of female vocals at start is a winner which leads into the male vocals which is solid a choice alongside the electric guitar. All The People is got a cool intro, I love the use of piano. The lyrics and vocals are just are solid here. The acoustic guitar is a nice touch. Ready To Dance is another radio hit in the making, I love the intro, the song is seriously catchy and the use of Synth is a good choice. Brothers is an excellent way to finish off the album. Catchy and well written. This is an excellent aussie release, good songs, solid musicianship and production will ensues this will win over people like it did me. Give it a chance, it’s really good and there is something special here. Just trust me on this one .
