Colby O'Donis Interview

By: Sindy

Sindy:: Hey Colby, where are you calling from?

Colby: I’m in L.A. in the studio.

Sindy:: Cool! So you were nominated for a Grammy Award—how does that feel?

Colby:That feels good! It was very cool and interesting to go. I got to meet everybody.

Sindy:: What’s it like working with Lady Gaga?

Colby:: It’s cool, Lady Gaga is great, she’s definitely a unique person to work with. I had a lot of fun doing Just Dance with her.

Sindy:: What do you think of Lady Gaga's style?

Colby:I think it’s amazing, it’s great—Lady Gaga’s bringing back a style that’s been gone for such a long time, so it’s cool to see her do it so successfully.

Sindy:: You collaborated with Akon on Beautiful and I saw you guys performing the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno!

Colby:Yeah it was really cool. I’ve been watching Jay Leno since forever, so to actually be on the show is a little mind-blowing to me.

Sindy:: Did you get to talk to Jay afterwards?

Colby:Yeah I did, Jay Leno’s a really cool guy.

Sindy:: Nice! So your album took three years to finish—can you take me through the process?

Colby: I was recording songs all the time and if I thought something was really hot, I’d put it aside in a folder, and over time I would take it to the label and let them choose from there.

Sindy:: And you worked with some big names, right?

Colby::I did, I worked with a few different people on the record—T Pain of course, Paul Wall, Clinton Sparks, Akon, Lil Romeo and The Dream.

Sindy:: Do you like collaborating or do you like working on your own?

Colby:: At the beginning I liked working on my own, but now I do like doing a lot of collaborations now—just kind of expanding the horizons musically.

Sindy:: Who would you love to work with?

Colby:: Timbaland.

Sindy:: And Let You Go is the new single, right?

Colby:: Yeah, it’s based on a true story of a relationship I was in for about three years. We broke up and the song pretty much explains the whole process of what happened and how it went down.

Sindy:: Maybe your song will make other people feel better.

Colby:: Yeah, definitely.

Sindy:: You toured with New Kids on the Block. Do you have any funny stories from the road?

Colby:: Not really, it was a pretty exhausting tour—a lot of driving! It was pretty crazy, lots of fun.

Sindy:: Did you guys have a big tour bus?

Colby:: Nah, not me, I just drove a little car—kept the budget small as possible.

Sindy:: Good job (laughs). What’s a live show like for you?

Colby:: I have a guitar, dancers—it’s a pretty big show, it’s exciting.

Sindy:: What instruments do you play?

Colby:: Just two—guitar and piano—those are the instruments I love the most. I’ve been playing guitar for over ten years.

Sindy:: Do you still get nervous before you go on stage?

Colby:: Just a little bit before I go on, but once I’m out there, it totally disappears.

Sindy:: Any advice for aspiring artists out there?

Colby:: Yeah, just believe in your dreams and keep moving and eventually, in time, you’ll get there if you have the sticktoitiveness.

Sindy:: Cool, Colby! Thanks for chatting.

Colby:: No problem, thanks for having me.
