Skylar Grey MCLXXXI :: Mike Elizondo Talks Skylar Grey – ‘Inside GarageBand’ by Amy X. Wang for Rolling Stone, 16-MAR-2019

With the free digital audio workstation GarageBand having turned 15 years old earlier this year (January 6), Amy X. Wang has written a new Rolling Stone piece covering the use of the program in modern music over the past decade-and-a-half.

One of the individuals with whom Wang spoke was producer Mike Elizondo, who mentioned Ms. Grey as being someone who is able to effectively utilize the barebones program. Elizondo and Ms. Grey previously worked together on several songs found on the Skylar Grey album NATURAL CAUSES.

Check out what he had to say regarding Ms. Grey below, and be sure to click the Rolling Stone logo to read the full-length piece!

Mike Elizondo Talks Skylar Grey | Rolling Stone ::
“….“Some people are so good at making demos in GarageBand that they bring in something and I’m like, ‘We can use 80 percent of that as the final record if you want,’ says Mike Elizondo, who’s produced with artists such as Dr. Dre and Eminem and also worked as an A&R executive at Warner. “There have been times an artist will bring in a vocal they recorded in GarageBand just using a laptop internal microphone and it sounds cool. Skylar Grey does this a lot. Alex Greenwald, of Phantom Planet and Phases… I  made a record with him once where at least half of it was stuff he’d done on GarageBand.” ….”

Skylar Grey | AUDIENCE Music Concert Series ::
“….“Here’s what the problem is: I’m a music nerd and I want to sponge up everything, soak it all up,” she said. “So where my whole life I’ve gone through these different phases with diving deep into different genres of music and challenging myself to see if I could make that kind of music. And instead of just embracing what I was good at I was also like, ‘Can I do that? Can I do that?’ And I felt like it was time for me to accept that this is what I do best.”….

….Grey performed multiple songs from her powerful forthcoming new album, Angel With Tattoos, including the gorgeous title track (album release date is sometime in 2019).

The album is the culmination of her musical journey in many ways because as she explains it combines who she was with who she is now. “Even when I’m now doing the folk music stuff, I am using a lot of what I learned with storytelling and wordplay and stuff like that working with rappers in my songwriting now.”….

SETLIST:
“Shame on You”

“Love the Way You Lie”

“Coming Home”

“Glorious”

“Be a Man About It”

“Sober”

“Do You Remember”

“Ain’t Nobody”

“Angel with Tattoos”
