Sevyn Streeter is busy working on her debut full-length album, but she took some time to visit The Recording Academy for a special acoustic performance and interview. One of her biggest breakthrough hits as a songwriter was Ariana Grande’s “The Way,” which she used to sing during her first showcases.
For a unique song to cover acoustically, Sevyn delivered the catchy song backed by a guitarist at the Grammy headquarters.
During her interview she spoke about working on her album, the benefit of touring to get feedback from fans on what they are looking for and what songs off her EP they like the most, and explained the importance of being in the right place when writing for herself.
“You have to remember where you were when, before you had a number one single, before you wrote this for this artist, because that pure place is what birthed everything that came after,” she said about delivering the most honest material.
