Cosgrove began playing guitar at age 8, and has been largely influenced by her parents’ collection of music including time-tested rockers like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Clash. Although she’s been performing since she was a child, she only discovered her passion for making music after recording the iCarly theme song. “I was always shy about singing, even though I’ve been taken singing lessons for a long time,” she says. “Getting to go into the studio and actually record a song made me realize how much I really enjoyed it and wanted to do it. That’s what made me want to make an album.”

All of the songs on Cosgrove’s debut album are about boys and first loves, subject matter that’s hardly far-fetched – the teen sensation and her friends are “always talking about our relationships and stuff.” But Cosgrove’s songs also have cross-generational appeal. Tracks like the synth-laden “Bam,” the confessional pop smash “Disgusting” and the club banger “Oh Oh” all feature irresistible hooks, and are nearly impossible to forget – no matter how old the listener is.

Cosgrove is showing her fans a new side of herself, and reminding audiences why she’s in a league of her own. “I used to always think I was just going to be an actress, but now I’m leaning towards music and singing too,” she says. “In the beginning, I didn’t really think about my sound too much. I was just trying to figure out the kind of music that was really me and my thing. But my songs are about the experiences I’ve been through, and when I’m singing them, I try to put myself into it, so hopefully my music just reflects me.”
