Pop-focused songwriter and vocalist - I focus on radio-ready melodies to inspire excitement and thrill. Hear more at skyestrickler.com
Hi! I'd love to work on your project; I'm pretty versatile. I'd say my strength is creating melodies that are radio-ready; mostly anthemic. Check out my first EP "DNA" on all the major players.
My songs Where Did You Go and Dance the Night Away have both won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and Dance the Night Away was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. I'm experienced with writing top-line, singing, hooks, vocal production and direction, musical arrangement, transcription, and creative production/direction. The tracks you hear I wrote, produced, and sang.
I'd be happy to talk about your specific needs and discuss our potential working together. Not everybody is destined for every project, but when it comes to music, I've definitely got an ear for making something with a radio-friendly melody. I also write love songs, ask to hear those.
Ghost-writing considered for higher rate. Inquire if interested. Rates vary depending on project.

Interview with Skye Strickler
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Song-writing or music arrangement. I also track Hans Zimmer-style theatrical pieces and record piano.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Max Martin. Ryan Tedder. Jay-Z's work ethic.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I've got some monitors and a full-sized keyboard for listening, but I don't do a lot of the production. I make the music. I can have a guy mix pretty quick and cheap (amazingly talented) if you want those services, but it's not my specialty; I'm the writer. :)
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Give me something to work with. I'll give you something back. Usually within a week if not sooner. If you're specifically looking for a fully-fleshed out melody with lyrics and vowel nuances defined, that's a longer process, so not usually ready within a couple days; we can always chat about your time constraints, if any.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop / EDM / Soundtrack
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you've got the analytic mindset, fresh ears is imperative.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Max Martin. Google Him.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Mischievous Pop.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started making music. Professionally for a year.
