Indie Spotlight: SKYLER DAY

Posted in News on October 5, 2017

Georgia native Skyler Day wrote her first song at age 10 and started learning guitar at 14. Fast forward and she’s released two EPs and wrapped up a successful residency at the Hotel Café in LA. Day’s second EP, Los Angeles, was co-written with producer/songwriter Steve Solomon (known for hits like James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go”) and peaked at number 39 on iTunes. Day is known for her folk-meets-country roots, but Los Angeles has more of an experimental vibe, blending in modern sounds and merging subtle synthesizers with her acoustic guitar. Steven Ward of Grimy Goods wrote that Day has “a voice that cuts like silver and a penchant for honest songwriting.” As Day explained to Ward, “I’ve loosened the reins a bit and now we’re experimenting a lot more … we’re going more towards a pop-alternative thing—I don’t know how to categorize it—it’s just very different from anything I’ve done before.” Day, who is also a well-established television actress, has appeared on shows like Parenthood, Pretty Little Liars, MTV’s Sweet and Vicious and Raven’s Home on the Disney Channel.
