“….singer-songwriter, Skylar Grey, is quite possibly the most down-to-earth artist in the music industry. Her “cool factor” almost supersedes the raw talent she showcases….”

VIBE magazine published an online article yesterday, featuring an interview with Ms. Grey conducted during her July 25 DON’T LOOK DOWN Summer Tour stop at The Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Among other topics, she discusses the inspiration and meaning behind Tower (Don’t Look Down), as well as working with Skrillex, and her thoughts on the EDM genre.

Interview w/ Skylar Grey | VIBE ::
What about the album/track title? Can you give VIBE readers any insight on the inspiration for that choice?
The song is written from the perspective of someone who is in a small town watching their love leave to follow their dreams, which is basically what I did.

If you could collaborate with one big DJ/producer, and remix a track off the new album (if you haven’t already) who would you imagine working with?
I’d love to have a Skrillex remix or something. I’m friends with him, I just feel like it would be interesting. I’ve worked with Kaskade and Zedd.

Are you going to any EDM festivals this summer?
I’m not really big into the EDM thing. It’s cool, but it’s not really me. I dabble in it, but I would never make an album with EDM music. For some reason midtempo, live instrument stuff is more me.”
