Have you ever been to a place that completely changes your vibe for the better? A place where you can forget your worries, because it feels it all for you. That's what Skyler Reed's music emulates. A safe haven. A raw oasis of one’s deepest emotions. Written specifically to touch your soul and lift your spirits. She dives deeper with each piece of music she creates, and each performance she shares.
Her upcoming EP, "Are We There Yet" is a sweet blend of R&B, Soul, and Jazz. The project was penned by Skyler Reed and Jessica Lloyce, a talented songwriter and producer. Nearly a year has been put into curating a fresh new sound for this Atlanta based artist. The journey started with a session for "Superpower," which is the last song on the EP. It really set the tone for the rest of the project.
With Jessica's style of storytelling, and Skyler's melodic nature, they created six timeless pieces that cross genres. The melodies captivate her strong, rich tone, and flow with the transparent words. The intro, "Moonlight," was inspired by Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, and showcases Skyler Reed's classically trained vocal ability. The title song is meant to pull on the listener's hearts.
A lady of sophistication and musicianship, Skyler Reed, was born a singer. She is a classically trained R&B/Soul artist based in ATL. Her heart desires to perform, and the stage has become her home. Since her time in ATL, she has established her music lessons business, Skyler's Music Studio, LLC, and has performed frequently around the city. She hopes to inspire and uplift through the words and melodies of her songs.
Skyler grew up surrounded by music. During early childhood, her mother, who had the gift of singing, made music an integral part of her life. She introduced her to the greats; such as, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, and Lauren Hill. Skyler loved the music of Aaliyah, Destiny’s Child, and Brandy. Although, Skyler’s mother is no longer here, she definitely was her inspiration to pursue music. Songwriting has always been a form of therapy and self-expression, since Skyler was twelve. She was a big dreamer and a curious girl with an immense aspiration of sharing art.
After four years of studying vocal performance at Virginia State University, she received a Bachelors of Music Degree. She took heart in the value of being classically trained, while still staying true to her own music. Shortly after graduating, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career, and made great strides. There, she performed in several operas, and then found herself as an artist. She released two studio projects, “I Keep Dreamin…” and “Movement of a Sunflower". Since being in ATL, she has released the R&B-filled "Descended Crowns EP." She has recently started releasing new music off her upcoming EP, "Are We There Yet," which will be released in early 2021.
