Album Notes
While breakthroughability may not be a word, according to Webster, Melani L. Skybell's musical talent certainly should compel the editors of today's New World Dictionary to consider adding it to the book.

Her repertoire includes traditional jazz numbers, sultry ballads, swing standards, bossa novas, and pop classics. With a new, unique sound of her own, Ms. Skybell's style stands apart from other entertainers and their treatment of those familiar favorites.

Ms. Skybell has been playing piano and singing since she was four years old. Her formal education includes classical piano and vocal performance at Boston University. In 1984, her on-stage experience blossomed when she joined an alternative pop/rock group, Innocent Bystander, frequently backing up headliners. Innocent Bystander was a regular act in Austin's Sixth Street clubs.

In order to refine her jazz style, Ms. Skybell entered the highly reputable University of North Texas Jazz Studies Program. It took very little time for her to build a reputation of her own. Demand for Ms. Skybell's vocal work grew rapidly among many of the area's jazz orchestras, including a performance at Caravan of Dreams with the University of Texas Jazz Orchestra and several appearances with the Eastfield College Jazz Orchestra.

This work enabled Ms. Skybell to assemble a group of the area's most gifted musicians, with whom she now entertains at Dallas' hottest clubs, hotels and restaurants, including, The Four Seasons Resort and Hotel, The Mansion, and Texas Stadium. She is also in demand outside of Dallas, having recently performed at special events in Atlanta and Jamaica. As a soloist, her unique interpretation of classic jazz uplifts her audiences with rich vocal nuances and charm.

Whether she is swinging hard on her up tempos, or warming your heart with her intimate ballads, Melani L. Skybell is an exciting talent. Her musical training is extensive, as is her performance experience and multi-genre skill. Combined with her potential as a composer, Melani L. Skybell is a rising star. She possesses breakthrough qualities with crossover appeal to all generations of music lovers
