NL Interview: Priscilla Renea Goes From YouTube To In-Demand Singer/Songwriter

NL: I heard you are a huge fan of David Archuleta, and that you wrote some songs for him. What was it like working with him, and what’s the feel of the songs that you guys wrote together?

PR: Living in LA, I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many artists. He’s one of the ones that kind of was like, even though he’s been through the whole American Idol thing and he had all this fame when he was 16 years old, he’s still the sweetest nicest person. We were in the studio and things were going slow, and he was like, “Why are we wasting all this money, you know we could go write songs in the car”. And that’s the type of writer that you kind of gravitate towards because he hasn’t gotten lost in it. It‘s still about …you know he just loves to sing, that’s his thing. He has a beautiful voice and he loves to sing. And he likes to stay inspirational, he doesn’t really like to talk about “Ooh girl, I wanna kiss you”. You know that type of typical stuff. He likes to talk about life and things that will make people wanna get up and do something. So the songs that we did were kinda like very… I want to say touching, moving songs. More like a pop/Josh Groban type of thing.

  1. vague rumor of another possible solo show for Kris — this one at Valparaiso University in Indiana. No details yet, just one person posting on FB

  2. Amazon has added a Biography for their David Archuleta page. It’s beautifully written. And it’s long. This is just an small excerpt:

    Actually, there are many sides to David Archuleta, all of which find a place on the record. There’s the youthful David, affectionately known as Archie, who often emerges on TV in the form of a mid-interview giggle; You can find him on the title track whose bouncy, island vibe vows that nothing’s going to break his pop stride.

    Then you have David the inspiration and role model, who looks deep inside and up above for guidance on how to navigate the world around him—much as he describes on the track “Things Are Gonna Get Better,” which spots a silver lining in the darkest of clouds and enlists a full gospel choir to drive the point home.

    And there’s the insatiably curious David, who doesn’t have all the answers but is resolved to keep searching for them. Look no further than the sugar sweet S*A*M and Sluggo-produced single “Something ‘Bout Love” for the sound of reach-for-the-sky bliss, and the hard-driving big chorus of “Complain,” written for David by EMan, David Hodges and Claude Kelly, which, despite its title, is an encouraging song beckoning the listener not to take anything for granted.

    brief Q&A with Kris (on page 57)

    Thanks girlygirl. The interview is now a little out of date as when they spoke to him it was before the video was out – but it was good nonetheless. Love the photo they used !!

  4. Thanks for that link, girlygirl. Even though it’s an old interview with Kris, we got a new question and answer at the end. I’m heartened to hear him say that his next goal musically is to win a Grammy … and he thinks he can do it.

    He’s come a long way in confidence in himself.

  5. I think it would be hilarious if Carrie had a tofu dress designed for her. Sprouts might hold up better, though.
