When people listen to songs by Skylar Johnson a typical reaction is; "Skylar's songs sound different than most hip hop" or "I've never heard a producer use a piano like that before".
This is true and it is no mistake that Skylar is distinguishing himself from the rest of the pack.
Unlike many emcees in the game Skylar, for the most part, creates every aspect of his songs. He is a true triple threat, emcee, producer, and DJ. He fine tunes these three elements with laser-point focus. His multi-layered beats are characterized by interesting piano and guitar sounds that intertwine as an equal part to his well crafted, interesting, heart-felt rhymes that put most other emcees to shame.
Skylar Johnson is a unique artist in a genre characterized by overused images and sounds. Sklyar is different and that is no mistake, it is by design.
