Christian singer/songwriter Skylar Kaylyn released her first album of all original songs, "La La La," in 2012 and launched her "musicianary" career singing across the country for churches, youth events, retreats and community events. Opening for bands such as Citizen Way, Unspoken, Bread of Stone and Hyland, she has continued to be challenged and encouraged in a multitude of experiences. With the December 2014 "In My Head" album release of all original songs, 18-year old Skylar Kaylyn weaves the musical thoughts from "in her head" with the talent of Nashville producers and musicians to create a refreshing and deeply inspirational compilation. Nashville, TN, producer Eric Copeland of Creative Soul Records brought in such talent as musicians Dave Cleveland (guitar), Steve Brewster (drums), Gary Lunn & Danny Lannerghty (bass), Jason Webb and Blair Matthews (keyboards), at the same time sharing his own talent on keyboards and tapping into the creative genius of Steve Dady at Sunset Blvd Studios, engineer/producer/musician extraordinaire Jonathan Crone, and photographer Erick Anderson through the lens of his camera and design work.
The completion of this album reflects two years of spiritual and musical growth for Skylar Kaylyn, as well as her deep love for the Lord. In the songs of “In My Head,” Skylar Kaylyn has written about a variety of life situations that reflect her relationships with God, family, and friends, and that she hopes speaks to a wide-range of people. In thoughts that transcend the many stages of life, “You Belong” speaks to the age-old battle of feeling hopeless and worthless, and reminds us of where we fit in…right where we belong. The title track, “In My Head” is the musical musings of a teenage girl holding out for the love of her life she knows the Lord has waiting for her. She continues to show her romantic and fun-loving spirit in “Once Upon A Time” and “Happy Mother’s Day,” while baring her soul in “This Too Shall Pass,” “Build a Wall” and “I’m Alright.” Her strong and certain faith that keeps her anchored in life’s ups and downs is clearly revealed in “All That Really Matters,” “Faith on Snowy Days” and “Sanctuary.” And, as a tribute to dear missionary friends who lost a loved one recently, “Tears in a Bottle” is an achingly honest cry to the Lord reminiscent of King David’s prayers in the book of Psalms.
Skylar Kaylyn wants people to know that Jesus Christ is her all-in-all, and prays that through her music people will come to know Him and lean into Him through the joys and sorrows and all the many happenings of our journey on this earth. She hopes to be singing in a city near you very soon, and invites you to get to know her on her social media sites and at her website.
