Singer and songwriter, Casey Baer’s latest single, “Make Me Hate U” was born out of a songwriting session with her friend, Annie. Originally written about a boy who kept toying with her feelings, this song was not only cathartic for Casey, it also was her big break on Radio Disney. Casey recently sat down with Glitter to talk about her new single, “Make Me Hate U,” best advice she was ever given, and also how she uses her voice for change. We also love her dream collaborations. We’d be down to see a duet between Casey and Justin. Read on to find out what’s next for this songstress.
GLITTER: What was it like growing up in LA?
CASEY: Growing up in LA like all places has its pros and cons. The weather is amazing, you meet people from all over the world, it’s the land of opportunities in the entertainment world but at the same time, it’s not easy! It seems like everyone is trying to climb the ladder, socially and professionally! It’s nice to just be able to be friends with people you connect with on a personal level and that’s it!! Overall, I love LA!
GLITTER: When did you start writing and making music?
CASEY: I have been keeping a songwriting journal since I was thirteen-years-old, as a way to express myself. Then at 16, I went to a writing retreat with the incredible James Fauntleroy and it was there that I really started to write music.
GLITTER: What was it like playing, the younger version of Sharpay in a rendition of High School Musical at the age of just six-years-old?
CASEY: It was literally the highlight of my six-year-old life! I’ll never forget it!
GLITTER: How would you describe your sound?
CASEY: I would describe my sound as emotional pop with an edge.
GLITTER: Who are your musical influences?
CASEY: My biggest musical influence is Justin Bieber, but I also love Rihanna, Sia, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Billie Eilish to name a few. I could go on!
GLITTER: What is your songwriting process like?
