South Africa's guitar bombshell, Sky Vega is something undeniably fresh! Her fiery stage presence and unique hooks make it easy to understand why this singer/songwriter has international appeal.
She has worked with respected Greek producer Kostas Kalimeris of Universal Records, French label Holy Records and Greek label Sleezey Rider Records as a recording artist and has several collaboration album credits in Europe under her belt.
Since relocating to New York, she has been making music independently out of her home studio. Indeed Sky does it all. This self-proclaimed 'computer geek' is equally comfortable programming, engineering, producing,composing, playing drums, writing lyrics or fronting her band, THE SKY BAND.
Additionally, Sky has toured extensively throughout Europe and has performed at many well-regarded shows including the European Rock Festival at Lekavitos stadium in Greece, where she was the only female performer selected to participate from 50 European countries.
Locally Sky has performed at the Goombay Festival in Miami and was invited on stage to jam with the Black Eyed Peas at one of South Beaches hot spots for an MTV show in 2005.
Sky has been featured in publications such as MusiciansOnly.net (Cover and feature article), New Yorks Urban publication 'IMT Styles Magazine' (Ones to watch Issue 5/Volume 1), and South Floridas 'Whats Hot Magazine' (Rockin' Lauderdale Issue 5/Page 27), 'Maelan Magazine' (The Gold Alter Egos Issue, feature article) as well as several mentions in Europe.
Recently, Sky has released the music video for her new single "Special" which is in rotation locally on Air 104.4 FM, an affiliate of the BBC & other EU stations.
Special is available on itunes,Amazon, Rhapsody, etc.
Although her lyrics remain faithful to mainstream rock, they are intensely thought provoking and profound.
Sky today is in the words of Musicians Only Magazine "truly a multicultural class act."
