Laura Marano Opens Up About Finding Her Musical Voice

Laura Marano goes for a classic look in this shot from her cover story for YSBNow.

The 19-year-old actress and singer opened up about Ally Dawson, the music business and more. Check it:

On Ally versus Laura: “As Ally gained more confidence in her music ability over the course of the show, I was getting more confident in the writing sessions I was doing. When we were filming the last season, I was like, ‘okay, I’m ready. I’m ready for this’.”

On being in two businesses at once: “The acting business and the music business are completely different. Just because you’re in one world, doesn’t mean you’ll be in the other. I was always secretly writing, but I think I still wasn’t totally secure with myself musically. It was this conflicting mindset of, ‘I want this so badly’ and ‘I’m so insecure about it.’”

On her music: “My songs are about my experiences: relationships, working in the music business, and finding yourself. I’m compiling what the past three years have been like for me and putting that out there. It’s so exciting and so awesome, but I’m being as selective as possible because I want to tell the story I want to tell.”
