In November 2015, sixteen-year-old Skyler released her debut single “Fire” featuring acclaimed rapper Snoop Dogg. The song’s urban dance mix rhythms and hypnotic lyrics resonated with her audience and “Fire’s” official music video garnered more than 250,000 views within two weeks of its release. According to a February 2016 feature in Cliché magazine, she’s “on her way to stardom”.
She opened the Cinco4 event in LA, appearing alongside The Janoskians, Sammy Wilk, and numerous other new and upcoming talents. Her second single, “I Just Wanna Dance”, and accompanying video which she co-produced, was premiered on Just Jared Jr.
Since then Skyler has been writing and recording with executive producer Randy Jackson. The debut single from that collaboration, Carnival which features American Idol finalist Mackenzie Bourg, released in July 2017. Premiered by BreatheHeavy.com:
"The ballad is about missing someone, a lost love," Skyler tells us. "It's about rekindling a flame, after realizing that no matter how hard you try to move on, the heart wants what the heart wants. Sometimes life and love can be confusing, but never give up and always listen to your heart."
Skyler’s musical success follows on the heels of an already impressive career as a model, actress and comedian. Born in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Skyler moved to Los Angeles at age ten to pursue modeling and acting. She is a veteran of film, television, theatre and print and appropriately, has a featured appearance in Lil Wayne’s “This Is What Rock N Roll Looks Like” music video.
Self-described as edgy and determined, she is full of surprises. Not only is Skyler a blue-belt in extreme martial arts but she is also a stand-up comic who devotes much of her free time to volunteering at animal rescue centers. And, though born in the USA, she has dual citizenship in the UK where she completed a successful promotional tour for Fire’s release.
Skyler is as versatile as she is talented and it seems there is little she can’t do. Her hard-work and determination have certainly paid off.
