Singer and songwriter Skye Holland began her music at 10 years old in Tokyo, Japan, where she was born. I first discovered her when I saw the video for the song “Superhero.” By the way, did you know that she loves the series Prison Break? You will have to read on to find out why and learn about some other interesting topics.
R: Tell us about yourself and how you got your start in music.
S: I started taking vocal lessons when I was thirteen. I met Steve Kroeger in high school and we started working together. Ever since then, my music started getting more serious, and I also started songwriting.
R: Tell us about your single “We Could Be.”
S: We always do this thing where we write music and never finish it. “We Could Be” was one of those songs. We came back to it a year later and it became one of my favorites.
R: Tell us about your other music. What are your top five songs to sing on stage?
S: Not in order, but my favorite songs are “Dive,” “Hang On,” “Her,” “Coastline,” which I’m featured on, and “Paradise.”
R: How do you come up with the ideas for your music videos? What is the best part about filming them?
S: My videographer Tim and I sit down and brainstorm ideas together. Seeing it all come together at the end is the best part of filming a music video.
R: Where can people hear or get your music?
S: Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Soundcloud, and Apple Music.
R: There are times when people are afraid to approach celebrities. What advice would you give them if they wanted to come up to you?
S: I would like to know the answer to that too.
R: What are some of your future goals?
S: To travel and work with other musicians and just keep releasing new music.
R: What are five things people may not know about you?
S: I speak fluent Japanese, I’m a certified eyelash technician, I love spicy food, I only have one cousin, and I’ve rewatched the series Prison Break six times. I have a crush on Michael Scofield.
R: Other than this one, what is the strangest question you have ever been asked?
S: When I was in Japan, I was asked if my mother was my translator because we look nothing alike.
R: What advice would you give teenage girls these days?
S: Don’t care about what other people think and do what makes you happy.
R: Are you on any social networking sites? If so, which ones and what are their addresses? Do you have an official website and/or YouTube page>
S: Instagram: @iamskyeholland
R: Is there anything else you would like to add or say to your fans?
S: Thank you for all the love and support. Follow me on Spotify- iamskyeholland
