Earlier this month, Emily Kinney released "Walkin' Round Your Dreams," a warm, retro pop song that recalls '60s girl groups and Rilo Kiley. The track is off of her upcoming album Swim Team, due out in September.

Fans of Kinney may know her from roles like Beth Greene on the The Walking Dead and Anna in the Broadway musical Spring Awakening. For more than a decade, she's been writing and performing original music. In fact, she was working on an EP when she landed the role on The Walking Dead.

In this episode of It's Real, Kinney talks to Jordan Edwards and Demi Ramos about the musical side of her career and what it was like to join one of the most popular shows on television.

The last time we talked to GAYLE, her megahit "abcdefu" was just entering the top 10.

Since then, she's carved out a place as one of pop music's most distinctive and versatile young stars. In addition to a GRAMMY nomination for "abcdefu," she's continued to pump out catchy singles like "ur just horny" and "everybody hates me." The singer-songwriter has also stayed busy with collaborations, including tracks with blackbear, Justus Bennetts, and "Fantasy" with Lauren Spencer Smith and Em Beihold.

Although her music is often guitar heavy, GAYLE considers herself a pop artist who writes through a rock lens. Her latest release "don't call me pretty" is a great example of this. It's heavy enough for alternative radio and accessible enough for top 40 rotation.

And yes, Taylor Swift is a fan. After meeting at an awards show, Swift asked GAYLE to open for her on several dates of the Eras Tour.

Watch Jordan Edwards talk to GAYLE about her career and what it's like to befriend one of the biggest artists in the world.
