Meet Alexander Skye

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexander Skye.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I moved to Los Angeles alone when I was nineteen years old to pursue music and acting. Soon after, I realized that acting was NOT my main priority and I decided to go to Musicians Institute and try my hand in songwriting and singing. I had always had a passion for singing but it wasn’t til I really immersed myself in music that I found I also have a deep love for songwriting.

Not only songs for myself but also cowriting for my friends’ projects. I’m proud to say that I just recently dropped my debut single, “Losing Sleep” and I’m working on writing my first batch of songs I want to release. Pretty surreal stuff. I’m ready to find more of myself in the music.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
A lot of my struggles in the past have been financial/time based. Balancing the start of my music career while also working 35+ hours a week at my “day job” has definitely been a drag. Sometimes it’s hard to see my friends that have a little more time on their hands do all the things that I would love do, whether its mid-day studio sessions or late-night jam sessions. Or even if it’s just them getting new gear that I can’t afford until that bimonthly coin is in my account. I’ve come to find that you really learn to prioritize and maneuver your time and budget around the things that are most important to you in life.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I would definitely describe my music as the early 20s experience. I try to embody youth, lust, euphoria and togetherness in my songs because that’s really all I stand for; doing everything that makes you feel alive and young, no matter the consequences. I never like to take myself too seriously because at the end of the day, we’re just floating on a rock in space. Do whatever you want! I really hope that shines through my art.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was definitely an outgoing kid. I was always trying to hang out with my friends, film YouTube videos, or write a song! There was never anything to do in Redlands, CA so I was always trying to go out to LA or the beach. I’ve always been a pretty creative person that wants to explore the world.
