You can hear Raini Rodriguez and Calum Worthy from Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally” on the new Disney Channel Play It Loud CD, and recently they visited with Disney Playlist about what music inspires them and more!
What was your favorite Disney Channel show growing up?
Raini: That’s So Raven was my favorite show growing up!! I loved Raven so much! That show is what made me want to be on Disney Channel!
Calum: My favourite Disney Channel show growing up was Even Stevens. Beans was da man!
What is coming up next in your music career?
Raini: I’m currently working on writing and recording my own music. I’m performing at different venues and introducing the world to my sound! It’s such a fun journey.
Calum: Over the last few months I have been producing music videos for my show The Coppertop Flop Show. I hope you like them!
What inspires your music?
Raini: I am in love with old school funk and soul music. That’s what I grew up listening to and I want to bring that style back with my music. I love artists like Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and more!
Calum: A lot of the music I have been writing lately have all been parody songs. Most of the time they are inspired by my flaws (haha).
