Interview | ‘Respect The Next’
Skye Townsend is so much more than Robert Townsend’s youngest daughter. She is a multi-talented singer and actress that has so much to offer in both fields. Obviously talent and greatness is in her blood, and since the age of three Skye told her parents that she wanted be a songwriter and singer. Born for the spotlight Skye began to create online videos of herself doing musical covers, and hilarious ”Celebrity Rehab” skits that garnered roughly 5 million views on Youtube.
What separates Skye from others is her creativity, sense of humor and her ability to uplift her culture through music, art or cinema.Her debut E.P. titled Vomit is an effective blend of different genres R&B, Classical, Rock, Soul, Pop, Latin, Italian, French, Folk, Electronica, Reggae as well as Spoken Word. She has also starred in a B.E.T. web series titled ”8 days a week” in which she plays a young student pursuing the perfect life. Her second E.P. titled H.E.R. is set to drop sometime this year. The Los Angeles Native is set to make her film debut later this year as well. Whether it’s in front of the camera or behind the mic Skye Townsend is a trendsetting talent that is #NEXTUP.
Check out our interview with her as we discussed her childhood, career, hobbies and family.

Magazine Spread – EDGE Magazine “What’s In A Name? Skye Townsend”
It’s a story as old as time itself: famous parent has offspring. Offspring has doors opened to them regardless of their own ability. We all gripe about how unfair it all is. Well, the story of Skye Townsend doesn’t fit this mold. In fact, if she had her way, she’d be an all together separate entity from her groundbreaking father. Choosing to craft her own path in the industry, the beautiful rising star has gone from YouTube fame to indie recording artist to a budding acting career and she plans to add show creator to her growing repertoire as she is slated to work alongside her father to make the future and past of TV live in perfect harmony. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Skye is that she is just 18 years old but possesses such a great wealth of knowledge of who she is, what kind of art she wants to create and what she won’t ever let herself be identified as. Sitting poolside with the stunning teenager on a summer day in Los Angeles, we discussed everything from family legacy to social network etiquette.
EDGE Magazine: So at just 18 years old, who is Skye Townsend? Right now…
Skye: It’s hard to describe myself. I’ve always been an artist. In addition to music, I’ve always been passionate about visual arts. A lot of people don’t know that I do photography and paint. At 3 years old, I told my parents that I wanted to sing. My mom wanted it to be “just a phase” so bad (laughs). I’m a super old spirit: half the time I’m listening to old Lauryn Hill or jazz. I’m sort of aggressive and people take that the wrong way but overall, I’m a passionate artist.
