We’re just two months from 2015 and here’s an artist ready for her big breakthrough: SKYLAR GREY.
Holly Brook broke onto the scene with her voice on Fort Minor’s #1 hit, “Where’d You Go”. But Holly’s true claim to fame has been her songwriting. “Love The Way You Lie” with Eminem & Rihanna, “Coming Home” with P. Diddy, and Zedd’s dance hit “Clarity” are just three of the songwriting trophies in her meteoric career. After singing with Mike Shinoda’s band, Fort Minor, Holly changed her name and persona to Skylar Grey in 2010. She said she chose Grey with an “e” because it’s more original and masculine. Despite recording with artists as dynamic as Eminem, David Guetta, Moby, Lupe Fiasco, Cee-Lo Green, and Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park’s side band Fort Minor, Skylar’s solo career has yet to take off in the same manner. Her 2013 CD, “Don’t Look Down” co-produced by Eminem debuted in the Top 10 but quickly disappeared from the charts.

But keep an eye out for this artist on the rise. Skylar (Holly) just recorded a new single with T.I. called “New National Anthem” from his ninth CD “Paperwork” that should blow up on the Hip Hop charts. Her minimalistic and sultry cover of Robert Palmer’s “Addicted To Love” was a unforgettable moment on the Endless Love soundtrack earlier this year. And her third CD is scheduled for release for next year.
