Scotty Sire is here to prove his talents on Youtube are just as good as in the studio. With 2 million followers on IG alone, the Orange County native showcases his artistry by creating music that not only sounds good, but for the people to relate to. Earlier this year, he unleashed the visual for his critically-acclaimed single “American Love,” featuring Elijah Blake and Myles. Now, Scotty stops by Power 106 for an exclusive interview on our Now You Know series
In light of the release of his debut album, Ruin Your Party, he gave fans an exclusive performance at Peppermint Club in Los Angeles. Speaking on the message in his music, he states:
“A lot of music is about overcoming something, or going through something but not taking it too seriously. For example, one of my songs is about ‘Mister Glassman,’ and it’s about growing up socially awkward and anxious, and scared to talk to people, etc. And then eventually overcoming that. I want all my songs to make people feel like they’re not alone in that. Not to sound corny, but I get a lot of tweets and comments that say, ‘This really helped me so much.’ I really like the songs have some sort of message that make the people FEEL something.”
Watch above as he describes his biggest influences, being socially awkward, transitioning from Youtube to the studio, and why he got the ant tattoo on his arm!
