CLICK HERE to watch the video that explores the theme of "realizing that you are all you need as a female," says Skela.
In support of the visual album, Skela kicks off her Project 10 Tour with stops at Brooklyn'sRough Trade on February 9, 2019; Chicago's Schubas on February 16, 2019; and Los Angeles's The Peppermint Club on March 2, 2019. Tickets for all three shows are on-sale now.
Project 10 is a collection of 10 songs and 10 accompanying music videos and is the latest passion project from the indie-pop songstress who crafted and filmed the visuals for the entire album in her hometown of New York City and Brooklyn with the help of three friends and little-to-no budget over a six-day period this past summer.
Rolled out as a countdown since September, the videos from the visual album have already clocked 400,000 views and counting on YouTube and Atwood Magazine recently raved,"Closing off the year strong as ever, Skela is sure to earn herself a special place in our hearts with Project 10, and we cannot wait for more to come from this exciting, powerful, and poetic voice."
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Skela began singing when she was a little girl, spending hours mimicking the songs on her mother's cassette tapes. When she was a teenager, she used her train commute to school as time to write down the thoughts in her head. She didn't realize it at the time, but this was the beginning of her music education.
Skela caught the attention of record execs in 2015 after she was prominently featured as the lead singer on Josh Jacobson's single "Not Alone" that has hit 1 million streams. The young artist has since gone on to amass a dedicated following that consists of 6,000 monthly listeners on Spotify by cultivating a sound and message unique to herself.
In October 2017, Skela released her self-titled debut EP and poetry zine that captured the ears and hearts of her listeners who delve into her lyrics as if it were a scavenger hunt. As the evolution of Skela continues, the princess of alternative pop discovers her inner voices with the debut of her egos: Venom, Bohemia, and Baby Angel. There is also rumor that her persona of "Alex Aller" will make a debut as well.
Outside of performing, Skela has collaborated extensively with the feminist community by working with companies like Pro Mujer, What's In Your Box?, and Unbound Box. She has received support from feminist focused channels and companies like Feminist Voice, Dolores Haze, and Glazed NYC.
Skela's latest singles "Holy" and "Heartbreak & Liquor" are available now on all digital streaming platforms.
