NHTE 182 Bryce Hitchcock
On-location in Nashville with this singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and actress! This past February she put out an album entitled, “I Wonder.” Last year she’d put out an EP that had a bonus track co-written and produced by Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick. Approximately a year-and-a-half ago a single for the holidays that she had released got airplay on thousands of stations worldwide. She has written songs for TV and film, including having had a song placed on the Canadian TV show “Debra.” She has a handful of sponsors and last year performed up and down the east coast of the U.S. as well as in Ireland.
“I don’t really get very nervous. I don’t think I ever have when I’m on-stage. I’m actually less comfortable just, like, one-on-one with people.”
“I didn’t like feeling restricted. With the acting stuff you have to wait for someone to give you an audition or whatever. You can’t just work on it at any time. So I kind of like the freedom that music gave me, I could write any time, I could always record music, I could always perform – there’s nothing really stopping me.”
“If you’re really passionate about a company, just do your research and find out who runs the artist part of it and contact them, send them emails – send them a video of you playing with their stuff.”
“Whenever you go to those red carpet events they’ll take pictures of you, they’ll do interviews and stuff like that, which is always a great chance because you never know who’s going to be looking at the Internet and happen to see your picture and wonder ‘Who are you’ and listen to your music and find you.”
“They actually wanted to use (my song) for the theme song but there’s a Canadian law that they have to have a Canadian performer doing the song… so they were like, ‘Well, we’ll just put it in the show,” so it was in the show, which was awesome ‘cause, again, it was the first song I wrote so it was good to have that validation that I actually could write and it made me want to pursue it more.”
“I think I’ve learned from having a lot of things end up being disappointing, you kind of learn to just take things for what they are.”
