ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Skye Pixton is a fresh singer/guitarist who is quickly rising in the ranks of Portland’s favorite chanteuses. Somewhere between Alanis Morrisette and the Indigo Girls in style, there is a woodsy quality to this seamless and emotive pop, which has also been compared to Shawn Colvin and Jewel. Her commanding yet sensitive voice, incredible original songs, and magnetic personality have earned her a growing list of loyal fans.

Skye’s most recent musical project, Love Lies & Skye, is a venture into performance art. Breaking with traditional concert format, her new show implements audience engagement, visual art, story telling, and weaves the music into a whole "piece" or “story,” rather than the typical list-of-songs style performance you usually see.

Regardless of whether you catch her solo or with her ensemble, she’ll carry your heart away. She is most often seen playing an acoustic guitar, accompanied by the rich harmonies of backup vocalists, a cello and light drums/percussion, creating an acoustic folk/pop sound that soars and shimmers with a passionate sense of the melodic.

In 2005 she won the Portland Songwriter’s Association’s “best overall song” award , a competition she’s won twice before in the folk category. Her credits also include three television appearances, multi-state radio play, placement in the State Talent competition, singing of the national anthem at a Portland Trailblazers game, and a long list of popular venues where she has performed.

Her never-ending stream of new songs, each seemingly better than the last, make her not only promising for the near future but also a definite mainstay in the music scene for many years to come.





“The sky may indeed be the limit for [Skye Pixton] who is a rising star”
~Julie Russell, Lake Oswego Review

“Portland’s own folksinger and songwriter, Skye Pixton, recipient of multiple awards from the Portland Songwriters Assocation, provides a powerful yet somehow gentle voice - complementing lyrics and music about the tormented search for belonging” ~Robert Hamrick, Willamette Week

a good choice!
Hadn't ever heard of her before, was just buying some things out of the $5 bin and thought it'd do alright. Well, I can see myself playing this CD over and over again . . . it's really quite infectious!

Powerful yet somehow gentle
Portland's own folk-singer and songwriter, Skye Pixton... provides a powerful yet somehow gentle voice - complementing lyrics and music about the tormented search for belonging.

Can't wait
I could just sit here and listen to the previews of this disc all afternoon... that will have to do until my copy comes! Seriously, this disc grabbed me from the start. Skye's got great energy, and a great sound.
