A lady of sophistication and musicianship, Skyler Reed, was born a singer. She’s been based in LA for three years; pursue her dream of becoming a successful artist. Her heart desires to perform, and the stage has become her home. She hopes to inspire and uplift through the words and melodies of her songs. Last May she released her debut LP, I Keep Dreamin… and just a few weeks ago, she released an EP titled Movement Of A Sunflower. The LP was a compilation of songs written over the years, which she pulled from to establish a diverse sound to display her range in tones. The EP focuses on her current stage in life as she has been evolving as a woman, and touches on love, fear, people, and her perception of life.
Born Skyler Lynn Boardley in Wilmington Delaware, this artist was surrounded by music. During her 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.
Becoming a songwriter at the age of twelve, to help cope with the loss of her mother, Skyler was a big dreamer and a curious girl with an immense aspiration of sharing art. At a young age she had dreams of working with the best in the industry, and someday establishing her own music company. Since then her dreams have only grown bigger and better, and she has molded herself into the artist she is today.
Skyler has been committed to performing, and growing up was a musical journey. There was never an interlude from music. She continuously made her presence known by participating in school talent shows, joining church choirs and praise teams, and even performing at family functions. She went on to receive a Bachelors of Music from Virginia State University. She took heart in the value of being classically trained, while still staying true to her music by performing continuously at school events and functions. Her wish is that some of her positive, driven energy will rub off on her listeners, and that they too will follow their dreams!
