EXCLUSIVE: Dove Cameron Reveals Her New Band’s Name!
by BOP and Tiger Beat || May 15, 2014
Calling all #Rove fans! Are you ready for an exclusive, hot-off-the-presses scoop? BOP & Tiger Beat spoke with Dove Cameron today, and she told us the brand new name of her band with her boyfriend and Liv & Maddie co-star, Ryan McCartan.
A couple weeks ago, we told you that the adorable couple was starting a band together, which they originally wanted to call Rove (Ryan + Dove!). Well, Dove cleared that up by telling us, “Rove was sort of a placeholder. We never actually intended on being called our couple name,” she admitted.
When we asked her about the band’s new name, she was initially a little hesitant to reveal it. “We have a name. I don’t know if it’s something… you know what? I’ll text Ryan right now and see if it’s something that I can tell you. We’re really excited about the name!” she said.
Our hearts were racing as we waited for Ryan to respond. Finally, he gave it the green light and Dove spilled the secret!
“The name of our band is Vignette,” she revealed. “The date that Ryan and I met was April 3, and in Roman numerals, that’s VI. So we knew we wanted something that started with “vi,” so it could be meaningful to us.”
So how did they come up with Vignette? Dove explains: “Vignette is defined as a little sketch at the beginning and the end of every chapter, and we thought that was beautiful — something that is constant throughout all change. Something that is the same at the beginning and the end. And something that weathers through every chapter.”
OMG, so beautiful! But wait — we have some more exclusive deets! Dove said she and Ryan have already started to record songs together, and she describes their sound as “upbeat, pop-heavy and super romantic, with some jazz elements.” We’re so stoked to hear it!
