How did you come up with the idea for your song, "Paradise"?
Izzy: We were talking at lunch and I told this story about how my dad and I got stuck at an airport and ended up driving twelve hours through the desert. So we put some lyrics together and it all came together.
Why Overboard? How did you come up with that?
Madeline: Carson thought that it sounded good and looked good with the logo.
Izzy: We all agreed.
Who plays what instrument?
Celeste: Izzy's singing, Madeline is on drums, Sophie is playing keys and singing a little bit, Carson is on bass, Lindsey is on guitar and vocals, and I am playing the glockenspiel, keyboard, and singing as well.
How did you create your song?
Izzy: We winged it.
Lindsey: We just played around with some chords and we came up with the chorus.
What artist(s) inspire you as a group?
Everyone: Imagine Dragons!
What was your favorite part of camp?
Sophie: I really just liked jamming with everyone.
Izzy: I am just really happy that we wrote a good song!
Madeline: I was worried we were going to end up with a song about banana monsters.
How would you describe yourselves at a group?
Izzy: Disagreeable. But we make peace.
What did you guys learn about the recording process?
Sophie: It takes a really long time!
Izzy: I thought with professionals, that it would go quickly but it actually takes a lot of time. And they treated us like professionals which was cool.
Carson: I feel bad for the professionals (people recording and mixing) it's a lot of work!
