|ALYSON STONER: BREAKING THE MOLD
Had the pleasure of talking with Alyson
Stoner a few days ago about her new
projects and how she has grown from the
child spitfire you first saw on Cheaper By
The Dozen, to the poised young woman you
Alyson is totally psyched about her new
single "Woman" which came out this week.
She describes her sound as
percussive pop/rock with a vibrant
International Groove. If you listen
closely you can hear Latin and African
drums. And of course, being the dancer she
is, the song has gotta be something you
can dance to. Alyson says the music has
allowed her to pursue and grow in her
passion of dancing.
Woman was written as a comparison of a
dancer from childhood to adult.
Autobiographical I asked? Yes. "I'm my
greatest obstacle." Alyson comments,
saying it took her a long time of being in
the LA acting world to realize it is her
responsibility to follow her dreams. Not
let anyone else, or herself stand in her
way. She feels the single gives fans a
taste of the real Alyson Stoner, and will
help to create a true audience. Living in
LA where there is so much fakeness she
authenticity is important. Says "It
doesn't do me any good to be anything I am
not, and it doesn't do fans any good
because then they are looking up to
someone who isn't real."
Alyson has been using her twitter as
a diary she shares, tweeting a lot of
inspirational yet personal messages.
People are surprised at how open she is,
but Alyson says she feels good expressing
herself. "I know what it's like to be
silent." she shares, adding that she'd
rather be open than keep everything
What is her favorite part about all of
this? Finding community by sharing her
weaknesses. "I am less concerned with
being a perfect popstar." Alyson confides.
She wants people to get to know her for
her. Nobody is perfect, everybody has
their flaws, everyone is human. And Alyson
wants her fans to see that.
Stoner has an EP slated to be released
this fall. Says her songs are on the same
essence and appeal as "Woman". Not only
does she sing and dance but Alyson is 100%
involved in the process of writing, and
Those of you that loved her acting
projects, will be happy to hear Alyson has
a new one. Her movie "Mr. Invincible", a
comedy/adventure/romance comes out this
summer. Fans will see Alyson portray a
much more mature role.
Talking with Alyson I was impressed with
just how genuine, and poised of a young
woman she is becoming. I wish her nothing
but the best in this next chapter of her
life and her journey.
