Amy Sciarretto invited Stars in Stereo's Bec Hollcraft into the ring for a Take Aim sesh. Two girls, a couple of questions, good music and good times. What more could you want? The band's self-titled debut is out now.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
I hate to think about that, but I am sure I would be doing something else creative. Perhaps writing novels, designing clothes, or acting.
Any non-music skills/hobbies/talents?
I swear I'm only good at music! I do enjoy other things though, like hiking and being in nature, fitness, health, fashion and reading. I try to better myself everyday with new experiences or by challenging myself.
Pick one song on your album and share a writing or recording story.
There was one song in particular that came pretty easy for us and it was definitely the most emotional to write and record. Jordan, Justin, and I, as well as Frogs (which I found out later) had lost our grandmothers all in the same year, pretty close to each other. Justin had most recently lost his and we were all in the studio and had an overwhelming feeling of importance to write a song in their memory. The melody and lyrics came quickly. The recording was the toughest for me, as I was crying through parts of it and trying to keep it together! I am proud of all of our songs, but to share that experience with other people is so rare, sad, and eerie that the song will always mean a lot.
Twitter-size your bio: 140 words or characters (your choice) of what we need to know!
I'm in a band called Stars in Stereo with four other passionate people who put their blood, sweat, and tears into everything we do. We have our debut self-titled album out now, and our website is www.starsinstereo.com!
Being a female in rock music - what's your experience been like? Good? Cliched? Different? It can go "any" way.
I've had an amazing experience with my band and on tour. Obviously I am mostly surrounded by men, but I grew up with three brothers so that's not new to me. You have to be tough and be okay with getting dirty and messy and going through some shit. I enjoy it. I feel like I am living life to the fullest. I don't really think of myself as being 'a female singer in a rock band.' I see myself as a musician. No sex attached.
