Summer is winding down, leaving us TV addicts in that lazy slump during which most of our summer fun is over, and now we're forced to anxiously await new episodes of our favorite fall shows. But when you're not too busy suffering from Chuck Bass withdrawals or counting down the days till the next juicy episode of True Blood, consider occupying yourself by checking out what Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester has been up to on the off-season!
The multi-talented starlet, who has appeared in both TV and movies, also uses her breaks from playing Upper East-Sider Blair Waldorf to explore her budding music career with producer Shahine Ezell and collaborating band Check in the Dark. With hit singles "Somebody to Love" and "Your Love's a Drug"already under her belt, Leighton is in the process of changing up her dance pop sound, experimenting with new musical stylings and finding that perfect balance between soulful and rocker-chic. And now, with her recent team-up with Summer Sessions, presented by HTC Status™ (the first-ever phone with a dedicated Facebook™ share button!), she's giving fans an inside video peek at her creative process, recording sessions, and sharing how her new sound reflects her personality and experience adjusting to life as a Hollywood insider and growing musician!
Think of it as your own behind-the-scenes summer concert exclusive... except without having to brave crowds, sun, and sweltering heat of late summer!
