Skylar Grey MCCXXXII :: ‘Everything I Need’ Co-Writ. w/ Elliott Taylor – ScreenRant’s ’10 Most Iconic Soundtracks From DC Movies’

Writer Kiki Evans has published an article detailing Screen Rant‘s picks for the 10 Most Iconic Soundtracks From DC Movies, with Ms. Grey‘s Everything I Need (co–writ. Elliott Taylor) making the list!

10 Most Iconic Soundtracks From DC Movies | Screen Rant ::
“….DC movies have been met with a mixed response from critics. However, their soundtracks are often considered among the best you’ll find anywhere….

To make the list more interesting, we went beyond just the DCEU. That meant factoring in Joker and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and then choosing ten best soundtracks from the mix. Here are the 10 Most Iconic DC Soundtracks….

9/10 AQUAMAN
There were plenty of reasons that Aquaman was a hit: great casting, stunning CGI, action and humor. But what it also managed to do well was use music. Nobody will argue that Skylar Grey’s song “Everything I Need” wasn’t absolutely beautiful while the soundtrack written by Rupert Gregson-Williams was quite good too.

For example, Arthur’s theme perfectly fits his personality and the overall atmosphere of the film. But there are other great tracks too such as “Kingdom Of Atlantis,” “The Black Manta,” “The Ring Of Fire,” “The Legend Of Atlan, and “What Could Be Greater Than A King?”….”

“Room for Happiness” | Top 100 Songs of the Decade ::
“….from “Clarity” to “Bangarang, the past ten years have borne witness to no shortage of colorful electronic releases that, cumulatively, have contributed to the genre’s expansion from niche to mainstream. A golden decade in dance, 2010 to 2020 saw electronic music hit a commercial climax in 2012.

As dance music worked its way across radio airwaves, most commonly through the recently popularized dance-pop hybrid format, and as the stock of electronically oriented festivals expanded, one thing became increasingly clear: dance music is for everyone. In a retrospective review of the releases that defined the span of time between 2010 and 2020, Dancing Astronaut proudly presents our top 100 tracks of the decade….

61 Room for Happiness – Kaskade Feat. Skylar Grey

Hailing from Kaskade’s iconic 2011 album Fire & Ice, “Room for Happiness” lives among several other companion singles including “Eyes”, “Turn It Down”, and “Lick It”, as a nuanced showcase of Kaskade’s discography. The track saw the superstar coalesce with pop singer Skylar Grey on a melancholically hopeful track with house progressions equal parts gut-wrenching and suited for the dance floor….”

Skylar Grey MCCXXVIII :: ‘Angel With Tattoos’ – Interview w/ ‘Madison Magazine’

Just prior to releasing her latest project Angel With Tattoos, Ms. Grey sat down to talk with Joel Patenaude for Madison Magazine (out of her home state of Wisconsin)!

You can read several excerpts below, click the Madison Magazine logo to read the full digital edition of the article, and check out subscription options for a physical copy (while supplies last)!

Interview w/ Skylar Grey | Madison Magazine ::
“….you’ve worked with some of the biggest names in music. But can you name-drop some of the people in the Madison area you worked with growing up?
Someone who had a significant influence on me as a youngster was Ken Lonnquist. He taught me a lot about being a performer. He’s really animated and a really good songwriter. We were definitely pretty tight back in the day. Then as I grew up I was like, “Mom, my peers don’t think it’s cool for me to be singing kids’ songs.” As I became embarrassed about that, I got into pop music and writing my own music. When I was 6 I played an original tune. But I didn’t start writing lyrics until I was about 10. At age 14 I told my mom I was going solo….

You didn’t bring a background in hip-hop collaboration with you from Wisconsin. That wasn’t in your musical DNA, was it?
It was not in my DNA. I was listening to Eminem, but hip-hop was definitely not part of my lifestyle. But getting to work with Eminem, I suddenly got thrown into this hip-hop world. But I think that’s kind of what made it cool and appealing to people, that it was something different I was bringing. These hooks were coming from a singer-songwriter. And if you took the hook off the hip-hop track, it could be a country song, it could be a pop song….

In an email about your new album, “Angel With Tattoos, you said it is an homage to the music you had grown up with. You can definitely hear Fleetwood Mac in “Shame on You, the first single.
And [on other songs on the album] Carole King and Joni Mitchell — people that inspired me as I was growing up and listening to my mom’s records. That’s not the sound I’m going to do forever. I grew up with such an eclectic musical background from all the theater I did, my mom being a Celtic harpist [and multi-instrumentalist] and my dad [Gene Hafermann] being in a barbershop quartet. So my influences are all over the map. I’m a chameleon and I can’t stay in one genre….”
