Darcy Rose Byrnes is lending all of her talents to the Disney+ series Big Shot!
The actress plays Harper in the series, and she doesn’t just act on screen in the show.
Darcy is also a singer / songwriter and she contributed to the music in the new episode, “Everything to Me,” which just premiered TODAY (June 4).
In the episode, Marvyn (John Stamos) teaches the girls a lesson: never underestimate your opponent. Emma auditions for the play.
For the audition, Darcy wrote and arranged multiple numbers, including the school play audition piece performed by herself as Harper, and by Emma (Sophia Mitri Schloss).
“Big Shot is very empowering of women and that translates to behind the camera too,” Darcy told JJJ. “Before this show, I was an untried songwriter. What I pitched for Mouse to sing is simple and pure because it’s written from her voice.”
“So to then ask me to write 4 songs for Beth Macbeth (which is vastly different in tone and composition) was a risk. Being given a (big) shot to show what I can do means everything to me,” she added.
