Tivoli Skye / Press

"Promise"by Tivoli Skye just hit the top spot on our Top 20 for the Month of November.It is a catchy,well produced Poop song by a talented singer/songwriter who was only 16 at the time of it's recording. This stripped down live performance of " Promise" leaves no doubt as to why Tivoli Skye consistently tops our WOS charts. Her performance captured here at the Lovin'Cup is spot on & clearly a hit with the audience. The arrangement,with it's harmonies & a cappella breaks,is inspired. Get yourself a cup of coffee or tea & spend 5 minutes inthe coffeehouse with Tivoli Skye.

Four years ago. during the summer before entering ninth grade, Skye said she was physically bullied by a group of girls from a previous school. And that's when she started thinking differently about her music.."I Thought, I have to do something, I can't just let this go & let people continue to get hurt," she said."It's just horrible to think about- that kids can B so brutal & so disrespectul 2 themselves and to others."..she got more encouragement after her performance @ the conf. in Wash. DC w/ record labels Atlantic, Def jam who were listening in.After...a few music executives,they encouraged Skye 2 find a way to connect 2 her audience & the anti bullying cause was a good way 2 do so-(She'd played"I Don't Care"-& they wanted background on it)"Stand up & Stand Out"”

"Tivoli Skye may only be 16..but has been deeply involved in music for a decade..Tivoli has served her apprenticeship & has that extra creative spark, determination & drive to push herself to further success..Having supportive & encourageing parents has undoubtedly been a major factor..with a musical CV that incl. 2 alb.& an EP,numberous live appearances & videos avail. on-line..she was 1 of 20 selected from 15,000,to appear@a major event in the MOA in the twin cities,Minn.."Stand up & stand out"..highlight the anti bullying message that she is keen to promote..her music is certainly a world away.."Adventures of a Teenage LIfe"..Pop @ it's purest-lovingly written & performed by a very talented young lady.No espousing..self centered pleasure seeking. peppered with thinly veiled ref. to sexual activity.Tivoli seeks to promote family centered..ideals..the video for Promise emphasizes this ethos..each track (EP)has its own distinctive sound..obvious determination emenates/ grounded/astute.

“Tivoli Skye has a presence in her music that is different from the rest.All day long you can turn on the radio & hear song after song playing. Each artist sounding the same as the last.Once in a great while you get a voice, a sound, an energy that makes you really stop & listen.The break in redundancy grabs& forces attention. Tivoli Skye has the power to captivate & really entertain..Today's music world is full of highlly marketed artists that lack ability and talent. Take away dancers,fireworks, & other special effects, & many of todays artists just do not stand alone on their talents. Tivoli Skye can captivate an audience w/ guitar,microphone & stool. Her talents alone is all she needs. If you want to add all the special effects well I guess that is just a little more to the show, but a true talent like Tivoli can stand alone. With Tivoli's talents and support from family,friends,& fans-Tivoli will be a household name in our future! Good Luck Tivoli Skye, we are all here for you!”

"Adventures of a Teenage Life" Tivoli Skye,only just 16.. new EP drops this month- pretty in a warm contralto...she strings.. thoughtful, unconventional, and imaginative chord progressions..Her songs are plaintive and sweet and engaging.. It's Skye's guts and her willingness to bare her soul that really make you take notice... teen years, it's an age of precarious wonder, pressure, and curiosity. You don't necessarily equate being a teenager with fearlessness...excellent collection-The music has to-and does-stand on it's own. Skye stepped into Mark Baders studio.. emerged with a gem of a pop-rock collection. Her creamy voice/songs/ still there..all sparkles with a keen pop veneer-The difference- is the experience behind them."The burden of musically and lyrically interpreting life around her doesn't seem to get her down-And perhaps her songwriter's intuition and insight helps in the rough spots,making the adventures of a teenage life easier.
