Q&A with Skye Zentz


“It’s a heartfelt anthem”


Skye Zentz will be the headline singer at the closing party for RIVERFest 2015.  She spoke with Elizabeth River Project about the original song she’s written for the river, and her plans to sing it for the first time at RIVERFest.

Skye grew up in Norfolk, VA, in a house full of strange musical instruments, star wars figures, and love. She taught herself to sing by osmosis, soaking up the influence of her very musical family, and humming along with the Motown anthems she learned on Oldies 95.7. Over the last decade, Skye has made a name for herself in the Hampton Roads area with her infectious, uplifting energy, honest lyrics and memorable melodies. Her releases have earned her multiple local nominations for Song of the Year (both in the 2007 Portfolio Music Awards and the 2013 and 2014 Veer Music Awards). Skye took home the Veer Music Award for Best Acoustic/Folk in 2013 and Best Busker in 2015. More
