In an era when music tends to focus significantly on the highs of life, SCY, pronounced as “sky,” aims to shatter the norms by tackling real-life issues through his songs. The artist was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. But, he grew up in the buzzing streets of Los Angeles, delivering the perfect blend of southern charm and the guts of a Californian.
For SCY, music has always been a passion. It’s an avenue to tell untold stories and hard truths about today’s society. Like most people, the artist has a nine-to-five job, making it inevitable for him to genuinely experience the pains of an ordinary individual—the stress, pressure, needs, and financial factors. He realized that life isn’t just one big party from such experiences, and it’s a gap that music has to fill. Being able to share the same hardships as his listeners make his songs relatable to everyone.
SCY recently released a new song called The Sky is Falling. “It is a song about a man who appears to have everything to the naked eye. However, at the end of his usual busy day he feels as if something is missing. Then he meets a specially mysterious woman who seems to fill that missing gap instantly,” shared the artist.
The artist writes songs based on experience and observation. Additionally, SCY is also a recording engineer, singer, and producer at Real Life Music, a record label that embraces artists’ creativity and uniqueness. The label was launched to provide artists with an opportunity to be different, to express in their songs every avenue of life, not just the typical party scene. Real Life Music does not tell one-sided truths but digs deeper into issues that affect people every day, bringing back substance into the music industry.
Asked what motivated him to start his own brand, SCY shared that he felt that there was a need to revive originality in the music scene. Working as a corporate professional in a bank before made him realize how the worlds of finance and music are alike. Often, people with great business ideas are pushed aside because they don’t already have the finances to back their plans. The same goes for the music industry. Those with guaranteed success are always the ones who get the opportunities because big-name labels fear loss.
Instead of complaining about the problem, SCY decided to become the solution and pave the way for upcoming artists like himself to have a voice. The artist aims to produce music that would stand the test of time, captivating listeners with what the song has to say rather than creating fleeting melodies.
“It’s not just a simple matter of pushing a few buttons on a computer. Music has the power to heal; take you back in time to the greatest times of your life; walk you down the dark path of the pain that comes with life as well. It can also take you right into the future, brighten or darken your spirit. Music is very powerful,” said SCY.
Indeed it’s time for an artist with such a profound purpose to take the reins. Without a doubt, SCY will capture music lovers across the globe as he puts their pain, truths, feelings, and struggles into harmonious words.
