Marano appears on the cover of the December 2014/January 2015 issue of Cliche magazine. She talks about her next projects, her show Austin & Ally, and songwriting.
I was always singing—like, always. I obviously would sing along to songs I knew sometimes, but I actually would mostly just sing random songs that I wrote. When I was doing homework, visiting family, or just chilling in my room, I was always making up songs. Whether they were actually good songs is a whole other conversation. Honestly, writing songs was just something I felt like I needed to do; it felt more unnatural to not write songs. When I turned twelve years old, I realized that music was something I really wanted to pursue. I started going to voice lessons and writing with people more aggressively because I knew if I really wanted it, I had to work really hard at it. I really wanted (and still want) it.
