Born in 1986, Holly Brook Hafermann (Skylar Grey) is a folk artist from Mazomanie, Wisconsin. She is a multi-talented singer and songwriter that recently made big waves in the music industry. Grey’s beautiful voice is similar to notable artist Kelly Roland, Natalia Kills, Holly Brook, and Diana Vickers. Associated acts include Kid Cudi, Machine Gun Kelly, and popular rapper, Eminem.
Grey began her musical career at a young age. Her mother trained her and started a folk ensemble called the Generations. The ladies recorded three albums, yet never found mainstream success. Later, Grey left the duo when she was fifteen and began her solo career. In 2003, she moved to the west coast to be closer to the music industry. While in Los Angeles, Grey created a demo that caught the attention of Brad Delson. The guitarist inked the singer to her first record deal with Machine Shop Recordings.
After signing her contract, Grey went to work writing and recording. She collaborated with Fort Minor on two songs and in 2006, dropped her debut album Like Blood Like Honey. The record failed to garner mainstream success but it did land her slots on several popular tours. The next few years, she joined with Fort Minor again to work on more singles and other collaborations. In 2010, Grey released her EP, O'dark thirty, which became a modest success.
She finished the year touring and writing more music. Afterwards, she officially changed her name to Skyler Grey and went to work with Alex da Kid. During this time she wrote the Grammy nominated song “Love the way You Lie,” which featured controversial artist Eminem and Rihanna. Although Grey had already gained some popularity, the single garnered her major respect in music circles and earned her a deal with KidinaKorner Imprint. Grey followed, by collaborating with popular artist Christina Aguilera, T.I.and Diddy-Dirty Money. In 2011, the singer appeared on American Idol for a performance.
Since, Grey continues to perform and collaborate with musicians across the industry. One joint venture included an impromptu performance with up-and-coming artist Karmin. In 2012, she worked with The Band Perry, and later with C’lo Green on their albums. One year later, Grey performed at WWE Wrestlemania and did further collaborations with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Eminem. In 2014, Grey dropped “Shot me Down,” which topped charts around the world. She recently played a tribute song “Coming Home” for Lebron James when he arrived back in Cleveland. Right now, Grey has no shows available at this time.
