00:00:07,494 --> 00:00:11,960
Music has always been important for Sara Bareilles.

2
00:00:11,995 --> 00:00:16,454
She began performing in school at an early age.

3
00:00:16,489 --> 00:00:21,210
Later, she joined a singing group while studying

4
00:00:21,245 --> 00:00:24,467
at the University of California, Los Angeles.

5
00:00:24,502 --> 00:00:28,170
“I got started my sophomore year at school,

6
00:00:28,205 --> 00:00:31,431
and I was just talking about it earlier.

7
00:00:31,466 --> 00:00:35,303
Actually, I felt like I had sort of found
my home because we were all sort of equally geeky.”

8
00:00:44,075 --> 00:00:46,446
Bareilles had an easy time

9
00:00:46,481 --> 00:00:49,140
combining singing with songwriting.

10
00:00:49,175 --> 00:00:53,882
“They felt very, like, they went hand in hand to me ...
writing the songs and singing them.

11
00:00:53,962 --> 00:00:59,443
Because I think they are all so personal
and I tend to be a very autobiographic writer.”

12
00:00:59,478 --> 00:01:02,176
Her songs are often very personal.

13
00:01:02,211 --> 00:01:07,542
“I do write very much from my own perspective.
I’m writing about things I’ve gone through ...

14
00:01:07,856 --> 00:01:12,935
and, you know, a lot of relationship stuff
and just sort of how I see the world.”

15
00:01:21,338 --> 00:01:25,315
She talks about her album “Kaleidoscope Heart”.

16
00:01:25,350 --> 00:01:29,581
“I feel like I took more risks this
time around both from the song writing perspective

17
00:01:29,616 --> 00:01:33,316
and from a production point, as well.

18
00:01:33,351 --> 00:01:35,508
Like, we’ve just kind of swung for the fences.

19
00:01:35,543 --> 00:01:37,643
And I wanted to have ...
I didn’t want to limit myself or

20
00:01:37,678 --> 00:01:40,973
self-edit too much this time around,
so I really did what felt good.

21
00:01:41,008 --> 00:01:43,661
And I had a blast recording the record.”

22
00:01:57,042 --> 00:02:02,962
Sara Bareilles is best known for her 2007 hit “Love Song”.

23
00:02:02,997 --> 00:02:06,962
You may be surprised to learn why she wrote it.

24
00:02:06,997 --> 00:02:09,185
“It was actually written for my record label.

25
00:02:09,220 --> 00:02:10,784
I had been turning in new music.

26
00:02:10,819 --> 00:02:12,094
I was getting the red light.

27
00:02:12,129 --> 00:02:13,778
I couldn’t go into the studio yet because

28
00:02:13,813 --> 00:02:15,629
they were waiting for something.

29
00:02:15,664 --> 00:02:17,864
But they wouldn’t ...
nobody said what they were waiting for.

30
00:02:17,899 --> 00:02:21,156
And, so I kept turning in new songs,thinking like,

31
00:02:21,260 --> 00:02:22,852
‘Is this what you want? Is this what you want?’

32
00:02:22,887 --> 00:02:25,333
And it was always a big thumbs down,

33
00:02:25,368 --> 00:02:28,690
and I ended up writing ‘Love Song’ out of frustration.”

34
00:02:42,508 --> 00:02:49,701
In her career, Sara Bareilles has already
earned several Grammy Award nominations

35
00:02:49,736 --> 00:02:53,307
and sold more than a million records.
