Songland 2019 Katelyn Tarve
The new music competition Songland airs on NBC on a new night and time. Songwriters compete to have their tune recorded by that week’s mega-artist. Songwriter/producers Ryan Tedder, Shane McAnally and Ester Dean will help the contestants bring their ideas to life.
Katelyn is an American actress and singer. She is known for her recurring roles as Jo Taylor on the Nickelodeon series Big Time Rush, Natalie on the ABC series No Ordinary Family, and Mercedes on ABC Family The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She also co-wrote a hit song for Cheryl Cole. “Young” is a trifle of a song. Shane calls it “amazing.”
He loves the song’s statement. The group discusses adding more “information” to the lyrics. Ester riffs new lyrics, changing the verse to “for you.” The band worries the verses are “too feminine.” Hm. Ryan thinks the song checks “all of the boxes” for themes such as freedom, youth, etc.
