Skye Delamey is a singer, songwriter, performer with a wide range of music that intrigue the audience. She has been playing piano, singing and acting since childhood, and holds a bachelor of arts degree in Theater Arts from Loyola Marymount University. Skye Delamey has studied performance, voice, and theater for most her life. She also studied at the Santa Monica Playhouse, Stella Adler’s Theater, UCLA, with private coaches, and more.
As a versatile songwriter, Skye’s music always tells a story. Some of these stories are fun, some poignant, some thought provoking. Skye’s most recent album contains harder rock songs such as “Detention,” “Girlfriend Muzzle,” “Untamed Circus,” and “Raquel,” and tell the tale of turbulent youth, the underdog who finds strength and resurrection because of being the underdog (as is the case with song “Detention” as well as other tracks). Essentially, the theme of freedom, liberation, and strength is present in many of the songs on new the upcoming album “Untamed Circus.” This album very truthfully and sincerely portrays this perspective. Skye Delamey’s rock performances also visually portray the songs in a very entertaining fashion.

What would you say has had the largest impact upon your particular style?
