In the four plus years that I’ve run JOVM, I’ve received a number of emails from unsigned and signed artists from all over the world. Recently, I heard from a singer/songwriter by the name of Skylar Fri, who happens to be a big fan of the site. Not much is known about her but her debut single “Man Is Strange” has a spectral sound that employs elements of electronica/electro pop and of country in a fashion that’s vaguely familiar to the likes of Daughn Gibson. However, unlike Gibson, Skylar Fri’s debut single manages a breezy, slightly pop feel while revealing that this singer/songwriter has an uncanny ability to write a catchy hook – a rare skill, indeed.
