"REFRESHINGLY HONEST AND CAPABLE OF PAINTING MEMORABLE WORD PICTURES, ZENTZ IS AN ARTIST BRAVE ENOUGH TO SHARE HER UNEDITED SELF WITH HER LISTENERS. IN AN AGE OF POSING AND ARTIFICE, THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL GIFT."
-SAM MCDONALD, DAILY PRESS 2012
Skye grew up in Norfolk, VA, in a house full of strange musical instruments, star wars figures, and love. She taught herself to sing by osmosis, soaking up the influence of her very musical family, and humming along with the Motown anthems she learned on Oldies 95.7. Over the last decade, Skye has made a name for herself in the Hampton Roads area with her infectious, uplifting energy, honest lyrics and memorable melodies. Her releases have earned her multiple local nominations for Song of the Year (both in the 2007 Portfolio Music Awards and the 2013 and 2014 Veer Music Awards). Skye took home the Veer Music Award for Best Acoustic/Folk in 2013 and Best Busker in 2015. A versatile artist, she spreads her music from concert halls to nursing homes and schools, from public libraries to coffeehouses and living rooms. Skye's music explores themes of infatuation, commitment, freedom and time, inspired by her own experiences and complemented by the insight found in mythology and traditional folk tales.
