Check out what they spilled about their music, the show and a special message to their fans!! Let us know what you think ladies!! Post a comments or tweet us a message!
T: Hey Savvy! Tell us about your group and how you guys got started. Mariah: Six years ago we had an audition in Texas, and we started as a six-member group. We went on a "Feeling Groovy" tour with Radio Disney, and that was in 2004, and then we kept on making music, and kept on dancing, and kept up with our skills. And then we met Doreen Spicer, in Las Vegas, and she fell in love with us and she is the creator of The Wannabes Starring Savvy, and from there we just started putting together the TV show. We've currently filmed two seasons and it is airing in 60 countries.
T: Can you guys talk about your music and what your sound's like? Drew: Our sound's kind of diverse. We're kind of a young version of Black Eyed Peas, to categorize it. We try to bring something different to the table, every song that we do, we have some rock songs, we have some love songs, we have some dance music songs, so I mean it's all kind of diverse. We try to keep it trendy, and we try to keep it edgy at the same time. We actually have two different sounds. We have the Wannabes sound and we have the Savvy sound, so that way it brings a wide variety to a fan base, and people can also relate to it in different ways. The Wannabes have the more kid friendly, and Savvy is a little more edgier.
T: Are you guys working on an album? Alan: We're certainly working on an album right now, we have a few songs, "Dance With Me Now" and "I Wanna Dance." Those are probably going to be the first to be released as singles. And our album we're planning to release sometime this year, probably during the spring. T: What's it like filming your TV series? Shaylen: It was such a great a great experience because it was completely different from the music side of it. It was truly an amazing experience and now we're having great success with it in South America, Australia and just a bunch of different countries, and we're really hoping they love it, and hopefully the ratings go well and hopefully we find a home here for it, we're really excited about that. T: Do you guys perform your music on the show, or is it music specifically for the show? Mariah: For the show, for "The Wannabes," we have songs that actually sometimes relate to the episode, and so we'll talk about things that happen, and if there's a problem that we have to take care of, such as the song "Guys Rock Girls Rule," where the episode is about the guys and girls fighting. I mean that's what sets the Wannabes songs apart from Savvy, Savvy is completely us and then the Wannabes portrays our characters from the show.
T: Are you guys touring, or have plans to tour? Gabrielle: We actually are planning to go on tour this February, we're going to go back to Latin America. And we actually just came from a Latin American tour, we were touring ourselves, we went to Argentina, Mexico, Peru and Chile.
T: Is there anything else you'd like to say? Savvy: We just want to tell the fans to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Our twitter name is @savvy_music, and on Facebook just search us Savvy Music, and our website is www.savvymusic.biz. Just follow us. And vote for our song "Dance With Me Now" on Radio Disney! T: Thanks Savvy!
