Allow me to introduce you to Skylar Grey.You may recognize her voice. She's been on some big hits, singing some big hooks (she wrote the hook to the Eminem/Rihanna song, "Love the Way You Lie", along with co-writing P Diddy's, "Coming Home", Eminem's, "I Need a Doctor", and Lupe Fiasco's, "Words I Never Said"...my favorite).
Not too long ago, I caught a performance/interview with Skylar Grey on TV, and was kind of amazed to hear the singer/songwriter-side of her.
She's got a new album in the works, and, from what I can tell, it'll be pretty Top 40-sounding. But, when I checked her out on YouTube, she's got a killer singer/songwriter side, too.
Skylar's got a song on the soundtrack for the upcoming movie, The Host, called Slowly Freaking Out. To hold you over 'til then....
