She explains that she has spent a great deal of time in her father’s studio and during this time, she was exposed to several different music artists as they worked on their music in the studio. Straus says that as she listened to the final production of the music, after the music labels would make edits on their artist’s music with her father, and she disagreed with how the music labels would change the feel of the artist’s music from its original form. Therefore, she says that she did not want to sign with a record label until she was definite in her definition of her music and how she wanted the production to look like as well as who she wanted to work with.
