Emmett Skyy is one of our WorldArts December Spotlight artists! The American singer-songwriter began his singing career as a young child performing in church choirs, singing groups and talent shows, with guidance from his mother, Cheryl Spooner, who is also a talented singer-songwriter.
Skyy started a R&B group called THRU (Time Has Revealed US) making a buzz in their local market. However THRU took a dark turn when the youngest member of their group was murdered on his way home to Baton Rouge from a recording session in Houston. The band decided to discontinue their efforts mourning the loss of their friend, making way for Emmett to create a new musical destiny for himself.
Emmett continued to write and sing, however he also dipped his toes in the business of music, fashion and marketing, slowly building his repertoire of learning everything he could about the entertainment industry. He’s currently based in Los Angeles, playing local residencies at the Hotel Cafe and working on music and pumping out original compositions across various genres.
Exactly a year ago Skyy released his music video for his single “Love Leads to Nothing” touching on how one deals with their emotions after a break up. The classic rock melody with Skyy’s powerful vocals is the perfect combination for this somber, “walking the lonely road” mood of this song. Check out the music video for “Love Leads to Nothing” on Youtube.
