THE SKY'S THE LIMIT FOR SKY FERREIRA

A model. An actress and a singer.  Sky Ferreira's talent is endless. She is paving her own path and forging ahead to carve out her own identity.  She's bloggers best kept secret, managing to  secure nearly 100,000 Facebook likes and over 140,000 Twitter followers without releasing a formal debut album. And she's done it without the help of MTV or radio.  What Sky has done is create a buzz that surrounds her wherever and whenever she plays. Rare shows that pop up, seemingly to test out new singles and gage crowd reactions.  At The Bootleg Theater last September, it was to play with a full band for the very first time ahead of her coming out performances at New York's CMJ Music Festival.  

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.  Since then, and with an announced debut album dropping in 2013, Sky has premiered videos off her Ghost EP, including the fuzzy-sythned pop "Everything is Embarrassing" as well as the vulnerable, acoustic ballad "Sad Dreams."  Check them out below!
