Bonnie McKee is the American Dream: she’s a California girl who pushed her way up to the top with nothing but raw talent and determination in her back pocket. This fiery combination ultimately helped her etch a mark on some of the biggest Hot 100 hits of the decade, with writing credits on chartoppers by Katy Perry and Britney Spears.

I wrote most of Trouble when I was between 14 and 16 years old, so I think it’s safe to say things have changed quite a bit for me! They were my first attempts at songwriting, so they were pretty sloppy and all over the place- cryptic. I was confused back then. I was writing kind of classic singer songwriter style songs, but in my head I wanted to be Madonna, so it took me a while to figure out how to write the music that matched the visual in my head, and that matched my personality. I am a lot feistier than that first album! My writing evolved immensely having the privilege of working with [producer] Max Martin and the like, his influence changed the way I thought about songwriting forever. (more…)
