McKenna Camille is Putting in the Work for Herself
HI, WELCOME TO ABOUT INSIDER! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO CHAT WITH US! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS MCKENNA CAMILLE IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
I am a singer/songwriter from Oregon, currently studying drama at NYU Tisch! Aside from music and acting, I am a nature lover and an avid water skier.
CAN YOU TELL US HOW YOU BECAME INTERESTED IN THIS PARTICULAR CAREER PATH?
I watched Hannah Montana a lot when I was younger and wanted to be her so bad that it stuck!
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR FIRST EVER SONG?
I came up with the concept of my first ever song by scrolling through some text conversations I had had a while back. The texts sparked some unhappy memories for me and my producer and I just rolled with it.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SUMMERTIME SMASH STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE.
“Strawberry Shortcake” is probably one of my favorites. I call it my “personal duet” because we wrote it with the vision that the verses are one version of me singing and the chorus is another.
YOU’RE A SUCCESSFUL SINGER, HOW DID YOU GET ENTICED ABOUT ACTING?
I actually started acting first! I have been acting since I was about nine and I am a drama major so I would say for most of my life acting has been my main passion.
WHO ARE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES?
In music I have to say Blu DeTiger, Elton John, Frankie Vallie and the Bee Gees
WHAT’S SOMETHING WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU THAT MIGHT SURPRISE US?
I am scared of escalators!
WHAT ARE THE MOST FASCINATING OR EXCITING PROJECTS THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
I am currently working on my second EP which is crazy exciting! I am releasing a new song here in a month to introduce this next EP and I couldn’t be happier with how it is turning out.
WHAT IS ONE MESSAGE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO YOUR FANS?
Put in the work for yourself, not because anyone else is telling you.
