Skye was so AMAZING! He was super flexible and his voice was excellent! He completely set the Christmas mood for the office and was very nice. Very respectable and exceptionally talented young man!
It was very easy working with Skye. He delivered as promised and was on time. Thanks Skye, your professionalism made my wife’s and my anniversary very memorable and special. I wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again.
Skye performed a POP-UP performance for our house party. It was organized as a surprise for my wife's birthday, but it quickly became a treat for all our guests. We all agreed after that it takes a lot of gusto to put yourself out there in a private setting like that and Skye completely owned it. Oh, and let's talk about his voice. The theme was crooner a'la Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra. He did those artists proud and also made it his own.
A super humble guy and naturally gifted. He is friendly, professional and a guy who is definitely going places. We recommend hiring his services while you still can!!
Thanks Skye and all the best with your promising career.
Skye was simply Amazing!! He performed at our office Happy Hour and he was a hit!

Skye Strickler is an American singer-songwriter and producer based in Austin, Texas. He grew up in rural Kansas and discovered his passion for composition through the local theatre. After dropping out of college a semester in, he moved to Texas to focus solely on his melodic obsessions.
He soon found himself in a notable downtown residency, of which (link hidden) said “he pulls you into the songs he sings and doesn’t let you go..” Quickly stepping back to focus exclusively on songwriting, he spent most of 2016 zeroing in on his craft for the debut EP “DNA.” Since releasing, Dance the Night Away and Where Did You Go have gone on to win the John Lennon Songwriting Contest Grand Prize and a separate, affiliated showcase performance on NAMM Show’s Grand Plaza Central Stage. The Iola Register calls the track “a torrent of notes, glittery, synthetic, a light show for the ears” and The Orange County Register and (link hidden) both called him a “rising star”.
He’s represented Austin at the 2ND Street Soundcheck Festival, multiple showcases during SXSW, and you can look for him as Austin Music Foundation’s Artist of the Month this May. With each song on DNA of a different sub-pop genre, they perfectly depict the larger picture Strickler had been challenging; to disembody his songwriting from any performance expectations and permanently push the bounds of his comfort zone. From piano ballad to electronic dance, big band swing-pop to a rap feature, noted along the way with uplifting messages and self-empowerment, there’s little uncovered in Strickler’s first five tracks. Focusing now on collaborations, including another group of which he started called bordrs., you can expect to hear more boundless feel-good tunes from Strickler soon.
