Gold Crwn Magazine ISSUE 28 // ALEX G - Page 16

How did you get started in this music business ?

It all started with a talent convention (IMTA) that I went to in 2015. From there it sent me on this path of traveling back and forth to Nashville to meet people in the industry, to write songs, and to record and produce songs.

'Big' is a very inspiring and powerful song that has a Sara Bareilles vibe to it. Where did you pull inspiration from for that song?

I wrote ‘Big’ with songwriters Kayliann and Doug Lowe who shared my vision of writing about carpe diem and living every moment to the “max”. The concept of the song and the title came from songs like “I Lived” by One Republic and “Brave” by Sara Bareiles.

What artist out now inspires you?

I am so in love with music that I can listen to any song and feel inspired or interested, but my biggest influences are definitely Sara Bareilles and P!nk.

What do you want people to get from your music?

I want people who are feeling vulnerable and afraid to feel strong and empowered.

Who is SydneyRay in one sentence?

SydneyRay is strong and brave girl with a passion for music and desire to empower others.

What is your advice to new artist?

My advice for new artists is to enjoy the journey. The biggest lesson I’ve learned over the past few years is that it’s not a matter of where this career takes me but a matter of what I take from this career.
