Model/singer, Sky Ferreira is America's newest pop sensation even though you've never heard of her.  But judging by the internet buzz from bloggers and music websites singing her praises, Ferreira is about to take the world by storm.  Last week at The Bootleg Theater, this 20 year-old proved why she's deserving of all the hype.

Growing up in Los Angeles, Sky was signed to a record label at 15 and has since gained a dedicated cult following since she released her two singles "Obsession" and "One." That led talent scouts to sign her to major modeling gigs with Calvin Klein, Diesel and Adidas.

Performing ahead of a planned tour East Coast tour, Sky had planned to release of her debut album two years ago but the idea was scrapped in order to focus on a new music direction, away from the direction that originally saw her in a Katy Perry/Britney bubble-gum, pop mold.  Now she returns with a more new wave, electro-pop sound -songs that have a distinctly Garbage-esque vibe delivered with the supple vocals of Fiona Apple. 

 Within the past few months, she's released a few songs "Red Lips" and "Everything is Everything" and "Lost in My Bedroom" off her just announced EP called Ghost this October 2nd.  Her full-length debut album will be released later this year.   And this night, she showcased her talents from romantic, vulnerable angst to aggressive pleasantness.

There was no mistaking the talent in Sky's rousing and performance. A surprisingly packed crowd filled the Bootleg to watch Sky's first performance with a live band. Towards the end, she shyly teared up and thanked the crowd for showing up on a Monday night. And after hearing her perform at The Bootleg Theater last Monday, her debut album will be well worth the wait.
