What an amazing interview!
So cool to hear the writing process for Invincible, who David wrote Waiting in the Stars for, what Upset With Me is about, sort of, generally, hypothetically, in a broad sense 😆 … and his relationship advice “don’t follow what I do” awwww
What did you guys think??
Great interview and story in The Ithacan HERE.
Found this part particularly interesting:
Archuleta’s publicist Ken Phillips worked with the Jonas Brothers even before Disney picked them up and has also aided other “American Idol” stars like Cook, who won the show’s seventh season, and Lee DeWyze, who appeared on the ninth. He said some artists grow frustrated when the public pays more attention to their old hits than their new creations, but that the enduring popularity of their first hits comes with the territory of stardom.
“I think every artist is always going to keep trying to create and make new music, so of course they want people to listen to their latest creation, but they understand,” he said.
Archuleta said he is grateful for his fans’ support and enjoys connecting with them, even if on a nostalgic level.
“I don’t really feel pigeonholed by it because I feel like I can do as I like,” Archuleta said. “And I think it’s been nice because I think it’s cool to have that nostalgia behind it. I still sing the songs that bring people that nostalgia. You know, ‘Crush,’ specifically. … They’ve always just been really open to what I have to offer now, and it’s fun that they still remember ‘American Idol,’ and they remember ‘Hannah Montana’ and ‘iCarly.’”
