New Single Release

Skyelar Clarke

Cape town based pop artist Skyelar Clarke has just released her new single “breathing underwater”. The single will be available on all major streaming platforms, as well as available for purchase. She first performed this track with a live performance on the South African TV show called “The Expresso Show” which was highlighting the theme of stress relief and dealing with increased levels of anxiety that arose during the pandemic. 

The single was co-written and produced by renowned lead singer of Isochronous, Richard Brokensha. Breathing Underwater shows a new side of Skyelar as a artist. The Funk bass line and darker lyrics create an intriguing dynamic that keeps the listener consistently engaged. Richards production is apparent with glistening synths and smooth catchy guitar licks.

A Born Star

angelic and hypnotic

Skyelar began paving her way in the entertainment industry at the early age of seven, where she starred as a child actor and began performing and working alongside the CMDA (Casterbridge Music Development Academy) founded by American recording artist and songwriter Dave Matthews.  This opened the doors to the exposure she needed and had the opportunity to learn from well-known South African artists such as Vusi Mahlasela, Prime Circle and opened for artists such as The Parlotones.

Skyelar moved to the UK to pursue her passion further and it paid off! The opportunity allowed her to train under and collaborate with many internationally recognised artists such as Tim Hawes (Ivor novella award winner, worked with Spice Girls, Sugababes, Aaron Carter), Leddra Chapman (Ed Sheeran), Luke Concanoon (Daniel Day Lewis, Jamie Cullum and Ed Sheeran). She also worked alongside Skunk Anansies lead guitarist Ace and Jennie Surmeli in a project called “Tuning In.” 

After Covid-19 halted her possible attendance at The Great Escape Festival, she returned home and began to work alongside industry renowned producer DJ Cosher on her four track debut EP.

“Skye’s debut EP establishes her as an artist with pop sensibilities but sits her slightly to the left of mainstream, with echoes of Christine and the Queens fused with Indie soul vocal textures reminiscent of Florence and the Machine. Intelligent lyrics sit nicely on a lush sonic landscape and invite further exploration.” states Tim Hawes
