Rising teen star, singer/songwriter and Cherrytree recording artist Skylar Stecker made her national television debut on NBC’s TODAY show on Sept. 9. Every month, disc jockey Duran spotlights a musical talent on the rise in his segment on The Today Show. This month, Elvis showcased the 13-year-old Stecker, who will be performing “Crazy Beautiful” off her debut studio album, This Is Me, due out today, Sept. 25, on Cherrytree Records/Interscope.
This Is Me is a mix of hip-hop-inspired beats, electro-pop synths and R&B-laced grooves that showcase the Wisconsin native’s natural grasp of melody, dynamic vocal presence, and thoughtful, yet uplifting lyrics. Stecker, who has writing credits on the majority of the songs on This Is Me, worked with a host of producers, including RedOne, Rock Mafia and The Stereotypes on the album.
Stecker released the first single off the album, “That’s What’s Up” last month, with Seventeen Magazine. The music video for the track recently premiered on Yahoo! Music. The singer, who has amassed over 300K subscribers and 27 million views on YouTube, was also recently featured on the national entertainment news program EXTRA, in a segment on rising stars.
