WITH AN ALBUM COMING IN MAY 2024
“haunting, ethereal, emotionally wrought dark-pop anthem punctuated by SkyDxddy’s biting rap verses. Speaking directly to the source of her trauma, SkyDxddy creates a powerfully relatable track that is as much of an emotional catharsis for the listener as it is for the artist” – New Noise Magazine
Fresh off her first national tour run, playing to capacity venues across the USA, singer, verse-maker, and alt-pop artist SkyDxddy is releasing her new song and video “7 Years”. Her first release with It Goes Up Entertainment/Compound Interest. Stream it here: https://outnow.io/t/sevenyears
“7 Years,” is a haunting slow burner with no-holds-barred rhymes which are deeply reflective and finds her veering between pain-stricken vulnerability and snarling rage.
Unafraid to share her story, SkyDxddy is a survivor of an assault that changed her life forever. After struggling with mental health issues, for which she was diagnosed as having PTSD, she finally found a way to start to heal from that trauma through her music by delivering filter-less anthems of empowerment. Sky shares, “Everyone always tells me it’s time to move on… move on from what exactly? Everywhere I go I’m triggered at least four times a day. Everywhere I go I hear their name, everywhere I go my PTSD anxiety and depression follows me. This doesn’t mean I’m not happy, I’m living my dream. My true self gets to flourish and let other survivors know that they are not alone. I have moved on. And I’m using every ounce of power I’ve obtained to make sure people know not to fuck with me or my Traumacore family.
When asked for her definition of Traumacore she explains, “Traumacore is music therapy. It’s a coping mechanism for anyone who’s dealt with trauma and struggles with their mental health. For those hurting so deeply inside that they need a cathartic release and find it within music that contains hard-hitting lyrics that allow the listener to feel all of the emotions that come from the abuse and trauma that they’ve suffered. It’s a community of people who are understanding, empathetic, and considerate of one another. It’s one big chosen family”.
She paved the way for her success using TikTok as a way to share her music and story and has engaged over 1.4 million followers to date. As an independent artist her song releases, “Triggered” (2019), “Hold Me” (2021), “Monsters Ink” (2021), “Battlefield” (2022), and “Don’t Talk About It” (2023) have collectively racked up over 41 million streams worldwide. Her latest song, “Pretty Distraction” released in September 2023, has already garnered over 3 million streams worldwide and counting.
SkyDxddy is proving to be an authentic and powerful artist. For her and her listeners, her music is therapy, a way of coping, understanding, and sharing feelings. Her much-anticipated forthcoming debut album is arriving in May 2024 in tandem with Mental Health Awareness Month.
