Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 4, 2007
New York City based singer-songwriter Skye Claire is performing an exclusive hometown gig in Greenwich Village on Tuesday, December 11, taking the stage at The Bitter End at 9 p.m. The venue is located at 147 Bleecker Street.
This date follows her successful 2007 residency at the famed club, where, due to her sizable fan draw, she headlined every Wednesday evening during the summer.
Truly living up to online indie tastemaker NorthEast In Tune's praise that "this Skye is unlimited," the critically acclaimed performer was recently listed in three key categories on the ballot for the 2008 Grammy Awards. Her popular song "Hope It Helps You Sleep was entered in the sections for Record Of The Year and Best Female Pop Performance. In addition, her seven-track 2006 EP Good Boys Don't was among the contenders for Best Pop Vocal Album.
The results of the first round of voting will be revealed December 6 by the Recording Academy.
Good Boys Don't is devoted to the universal topics of love, life and loss for a young woman in the Big City. The seven compelling tracks prove why Skye is "a new force taking the industry by storm." (Women In Music)
On the radio, the Indie Connection show--in conjunction with Inside Connection Music Magazine--broadcast Good Boys Don't in its entirety, and Billboard Magazine's Song of the Year recognized, with honorable mention, her song "Left of This."
Indie.In.Tune, an organization that supports independent music worldwide, gave Skye a full sponsorship, including promotion, reviews and her own website. Star Polish.com, an online magazine that promotes new talent, also featured her in a front-page interview. MTV requested Skye's EP for consideration for "MTV Road Rules."
Always in demand, Skye has an aggressive touring schedule with performances at numerous events, conferences and showcases throughout the NYC area, including NY's Meanie-Fest, the AMG Major Record Label Showcase, and the Millennium Music Conference. In Manhattan, Skye has been a regular at Pianos, The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, Don Hills, Lion's Den, The Sidewalk Café, and CBGB's. Skye, who has performed live as far away as Paris, is also on the hot list of several colleges including Wesleyan, Cornell and C.W. Post where she has been invited to perform concerts and benefits.
In addition, Skye was selected to be an artist in Deena Miller's Chick Singer Night (CSN), an original songfest featuring the top female talent in the nation. CSN is supported by NAMM and the Guitar Center and has a national and global presence.
On the business end of things, music industry executives from renowned firms such as Big Noise Productions (Christina Aguilera) , Alpha Music Group (the most selective A & R Firm in the U.S.), and Rainmaker Public Relations (one of the top five publicists in the country) have added Skye to their rosters. Skye is represented by Janine Small, Esq. of the acclaimed entertainment law firm, Carroll, Guido and Gruffman, LLP.
