Upon first listen, it's hard not to be taken by the indie songstress' celestial vocals but Skela's real anchor is burrowed in her thoughtful and inventive lyricism.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Skela began singing when she was a little girl, spending hours mimicking the songs on her mother's cassette tapes. When she was a teenager, she used her train commute to school as a time to write down the thoughts in her head. She didn't know it at the time, but this was the beginning of her music education.
The self-taught artist made her first entrance with break out track, 'Not Alone' (with Josh Jacobson) in 2015. She spent the next year cultivating a sound & message unique to herself and released her first EP and poetry zine in October 2017.
Skela has since then captured the ears and hearts of her listeners who look into her lyrics as if it were a scavenger hunt.
Her first single of the year will be released this Spring 2018.
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/producer SHEARE has unveiled the release date for his debut EP TURBULENCE today. SHEARE (Brandon Sheer) wrote, recorded and produced the five songs on TURBULENCE, which will be independently released on May 12, in his home studio during a dark and cold January. In what he calls the “Post-Holiday Blues” period, he locked himself in his apartment, and created the songs in a matter of weeks. Thematically, the EP explores the experience of a long-term relationship ending, and running away from those feelings of loss until they inevitably catch up with you. The process of creating the songs was a catharsis for SHEARE – releasing all of the hidden feelings from the relationship and confronting them, and the end result is a collection with a darker tone from his sun-soaked 2016 singles.
Using the same precision to craft his songs as a couture designer approaches their craft, SHEARE singularly writes, records and produces his glistening, hook-laden gems. Borrowing influences from the present and past both musically and in his own style, he remains relentless honest underneath the pop sheen. SHEARE’s effervescent, infectious tracks have been praised by the likes of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tumblr, Teen Vogue, Z100, Spotify’s Fresh Finds, MTV Radar, The Huffington Post Galore, PopCrush, Artist Direct + more.
