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.

VivaLaVelvete.com Spotlight Interview: Skye Townsend
We caught up with this refreshingly young and multi-faceted artist to give you an opportunity to know her better and see what she contributes to the world as an artist. Please enjoy this spotlight interview with Skye Townsend:
VLV: Briefly, tell us who you are and where you are from?
ST: My name is Skye Townsend and I’m an 18 year old singer/songwriter/actress born and raised in LA.
VLV: When did you first discover your creative talents? What about it initially sparked your interest?
ST: I was three years old when I initially told my parents I wanted to be an entertainer. I remember feeling on top of the world when I would perform for people as a child. I don’t remember loving anything more than I loved my art.
VLV: What do you feel distinguishes you from other artists?
ST: I do all types of artwork and am equally passionate about them all. My friends laugh at me because I take on a new hobby or art form each year. When I’m not working in entertainment, I run an at-home photography business and do hair and makeup for shoots. I believe in utilizing all God given talents.
VLV: What affect do you strive to have on people with your art?
ST: I hope to educate people while still keeping their attention. I have messages in all of my music and hope to inspire and not bore people with the messages.
VLV: How do you keep yourself motivated?
ST: I look at the lack of change going on in the world and am motivated every day.
