One Direction support act Camryn: "Harry Styles has impromptu dance parties on tour"

Camryn is the envy of millions of girls worldwide at the moment. The 13-year-old US star is currently supporting One Direction on their European Take Me Home tour, mixing it up with the lads backstage and enjoying a strong crowd response. Pressparty caught up with her to find out more...

You're out supporting One Direction on tour - what has it been like so far?

Amazing! Even though we're already a couple of months into the tour, I still can't believe I'm here. The fans have been so incredible and I've gotten to see so many places I've never been before. I feel so lucky.

Any fun 1D related backstage stories from the tour?

Harry [Styles] loves to have impromptu dance parties backstage...those have made for some of my favourite moments with the boys!

Do you feel like you're in a privileged position with regards to supporting One Direction? Countless acts would love to warm up for them...

I feel so privileged to be on the 1D tour! I've worked really hard to get where I am, but I know a million people would kill to be in my shoes so I'm not taking a single moment for granted.

Do you prefer touring over working in the studio?

Definitely! I really like working in the studio, it's a great place to be creative and experiment with my music - but there's no better feeling in the world than stepping on stage and playing my songs for a crowd.




For those who haven't heard of Camryn, how would you describe your sound?

I like so many styles of music, so I tried to incorporate them all into my songs to make it my own, original sound. For instance, when you hear my single 'Now or Never', it sounds like it's going to be a straight rock song, but once the chorus hits, you'll hear a lot of pop and dance influences.

What does the rest of 2013 hold for you?

Well, I'll be on this tour through to the end of May so I'm just soaking this experience in until then. But I'm really looking forward to working on a full-length album when I get back home.

Who would you love to collaborate with in the future?

I'm such a huge fan of Rihanna! She seems like such a hard worker and all of her songs are so on point. I'd love to see how she works in the studio. 

You're only 13 - how are you coping with fame at such a young age?

I'm just taking every day as it comes. My schedule has been so crazy that it's hard to even know where I am sometimes. But I have an amazing support system with my family and friends - they keep me on track.

How long do you see your career lasting?

I love what I do so much, I can't imagine doing anything else. As long as I have something to write and sing about, I'm here to stay.
