One word... "Invisible". One of my favorite songs of 2011 and the debut single for the upcoming album of Interscope recording artist Skylar Grey. She wrote the hook to the massive 2010 hit "Love the Way You Lie" by Eminem featuring Rihanna and earned a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year for her contributions, she can be heard performing a demo of the song below. Grey's music can be described as dark and eerie pop/hip-hop while her voice has a similar tone to that of Sarah McLachlan and American Idol finalist Haley Reinhart. In the end product, her music balances itself out well. She has a great variety of influences, the most telling being Marilyn Manson, Sarah McLachlan, Bob Dylan and Death Cab for Cutie. Skylar Grey's debut album "Invinsible" is scheduled a January 2012 release, with Interscope behind her, the world should prepare to be wowed. This girl is definitely one to watch.
