Skylar Grey

Singer/songwriter Skylar Grey started out as a child folk artist in a group with her mother. She eventually branched out on her own and recorded under her name, Holly Brook, before taking on the stage name that's now credited with the simultaneously haunting and soothing vocals that have gotten several collabs with Eminem (including a Grammy nod for his and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie," features on his and Dre's "I Need a Doctor" and his and Slaughterhouse's "Our House;" and her own "C'mon Let Me Ride"). She's also guested on tracks with Diddy ("Coming Home") and Lupe Fiasco ("Words I Never Said") and has writing credit on Cee-Lo Green's "Only You."
