Schuyler Iona Press / Bio

Schuyler is a 15 year old singer/songwriter from NYC. She is the youngest artist ever invited to participate in the prestigious Singer/Songwriter Sessions at NYC's iconic Bitter End. The music video to Schuyler's 911 tribute song "Playground Museum" which is a first hand account of Schuyler's experiences at 3 years old and includes a combination of home video of Schuyler shot on 9/11/01 and 9/11/12, had its premiere at the International Film Festival Manhattan and is a winner of the prestigious My HERO International Film Festival Music Video category in Los Angeles. "Playground Museum" is also a 2012 finalist for the Ron Kovic Peace Prize.

In June 2013, Schuyler opened a 4 week NYC workshop run of a new theatrical concert called "What I'm Failing to Learn" (http://www.whatimfailingtolearn.com) featuring Schuyler and her band performing 11 of her originals songs supported by Irish step dancers and multimedia video. The show received rave reviews and is planning a larger run fall 2013.

At 13 years old, Schuyler wrote the score and main theme song "Summer Child" for the 2013 soon to be released indie feature film "Theresa is a Mother" winner of Best Film awards at the Orlando Film Festival, Washington DC Reel Independent Film Festival, Amsterdam Film Festival, and International Film Festival Manhattan.
