Amidst the growing anxieties and threats of the closing year, some artists have thrived and grown throughout 2020. One such artist is SCY, who has recently released his new single “The Sky is Falling,” which continues to make rounds across digital airwaves.
SCY (pronounced as “Sky”) is an artist and recording engineer based in Los Angeles. He currently owns and runs Real-Life Music LLC, a sound engineering company that has worked with many influential artists on the west coast. The engineering and music company started in the early 90s with the sole intention of delivering high-quality music that would go beyond the white noise of no-substance music that invades today’s radios.
A resident of the less inviting areas of Los Angeles, SCY knows all too well the crime, corruption, and violence that plagues the streets of Crenshaw and other neighboring regions. He grew up amongst music circles and would listen to music that would glorify the community’s degrading aspects. “Every song seemed to be about degrading someone or partying and every video put out seemed to show life as nothing but a party,” SCY explains.
Unsatisfied with where the local music scene was going, he started pursuing his own music brand that would deliver content with substance that other people could relate to and draw inspiration from. The artist formed Real-Life Music to “bridge the gap between make believe and reality.”
Real-Life and SCY have made a living and legacy, creating music that enriches people. Yet after years of being on the supporting end, SCY has decided to step out of the mixing booth and start recording his original material. He starts this new journey with the release of “The Sky is Falling,” which is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, and other channels. The song narrates the life of a man who appears to have it all but struggles with emptiness. He then meets a woman who fills the void instantly and gives him a sense of meaning.
The new single is but the tip of the iceberg as SCY has many other songs and arrangements lined up for release, which are all currently in the works. “I have so many songs, musical arrangements, and melodies in my head,” he shares. “I already have the bare bone concepts of 3 future albums ready to go. I also feel it is imperative that I keep educating myself on the ever changing music businesses.” Accordingly, SCY looks to make his way through the sea of artists and climb his way to the top in the next five years. He settles for nothing less than the highest of goals and works hard to reach them.
The artist relies most on the originality and relatability of his music and, as a man with a day job, seeks to connect with all the realities of life. The themes of his music are not far from the daily musings that fans face regularly. He writes about everything people know best, including stories on life, bills, taxes, and anything under the sun that occurs to anyone. He also does his best to keep his music original, staying away from the proverbial “Big Mac of music” that guarantees results but sounds like the majority of tracks that continue to make rounds on digital platforms today.
SCY is committed to bringing high-quality music, and “The Sky Is Falling” is the starting point of all of that. To check out his latest single and learn more about the musician, check out SCY’s website and Spotify.
