BYOU Magazine: Can you tell us about your music and upcoming projects for The Girl and The Dreamcatcher?
Dove: Yeah! Mine and Ryan’s band, The Girl and The Dreamcatcher, is a huge passion of mine. I am so excited. I am really, really grateful to Disney Channel for showing our stuff, helping me promote and cultivate this music career. It’s amazing! I could not feel happier. It is very rare that an artist in my position, or in almost anyone’s position really, has full power and autonomy over what they put out, but Ryan and I really do. Everything that you hear form our band has been written by us. We get the music back and we say, “we want more drums here,” or “want more guitar here,” or “we definitely want this part to be longer.” We shoot, pay for, and edit all of our own music videos. So everything that you’re getting from us is 100 percent authentic; you’re getting it directly from us and that’s something that we’re really proud about. We have a lot coming out this year. 2016 is going to be a huge year for us, and we’re really excited about all this support we’re being shown by the fans — we love our “dreamcatchers”! And there’s so much more coming your way and I can’t even wait to show you guys! Lots of live performances, lots of music videos, singles, possibly an EP! (see update below)
BYOU Magazine: If you had the possibility of signing with a record company, what would you do?
Dove: That’s a conversation we’re in right now because we’re both people that understand that the only way to break a plan is to make a plan. So we’re never going to say, “We will never sign with a record label.” Right now, we’re not really interested but if we were to sign with a record label, the first thing we would say to them is, “We’ve done this all by ourselves and we don’t want to lose our control. And we don’t want to lose our relationship with our fans if we sign with you. Can you offer us that?” If they say “yes,” we’ll look into it further and if they say “no,” then we will remain independent forever.
