When it comes to triple threats, Sky Ferreira's name comes to mind. She's a model, actress and a singer/songwriter. But don't get this 20 year-old mixed up with the rest of them. This girl is the real deal.
Ferreira spent her teen years maintaining a Myspace profile where she uploaded various demos of self-written tracks. Shortly before her 15th birthday, she caught the attention of Swedish production duo Bloodshy & Avant by contacting them. The producers were impressed and decided to work with her. Talk about putting yourself out there!
You might've heard Sky's catchy electropop track "One" in various clothing stores like Forever 21 and H&M (I hear it practically every time I'm shopping.) Her current EP, Ghost, has sparked a new sound for Sky, going for a more Blondie-esque sound rather than electropop. She even worked with my personal hero, Shirley Manson of Garbage, on the track "Red Lips." Her current single, "Everything Is Embarrassing," was named one of the best songs of 2012 by music publications such as Pitchfork and Spin. Her much-awaited debut album, I'm Not Alright, is scheduled to be released this year.
