About

Skylar Kaylyn, Singer ~ Songwriter ~ Musicianary

Christian singer/songwriter Skylar Kaylyn was born in 1996 in Mission Viejo, CA, spending most of her life growing up in a small town in Wyoming.  She has loved music and has been writing songs since before she could walk or talk, and says, “It’s all I remember.”   She has acted, sung, and danced in her community since she was 6, singing and acting in her church from a very young age, and, after teaching herself how to play guitar when she was 12, she has helped to lead worship during church and youth group meetings. 

Her mother, Summer, started a song and dance group in 2007, which performed at their home church and around their town at community events for many years.  The group started going to a Christian dance festival in California every year, and God started opening doors to her music ministry with the connections they made at that festival.

In 2011, Skylar Kaylyn started moving forward with her very first solo album project.  She released her album titled, "La La La," in December of 2012 and has since enjoyed a traveling ministry of sharing her music at churches, youth retreats and camps, festivals and community outreach.  She has opened for bands such as Citizen Way, Unspoken, Chris August and Jonny Diaz, developing friendships and soaking up generous encouragement and advice. 

With the December 2014 release of her second album of all original songs titled, “In My Head,” Skylar Kaylyn weaved the musical thoughts from "in her head" with the talent of Nashville producers and musicians to create a refreshing and deeply inspirational compilation.  While much of this project was done over Skype, Nashville, TN, producer Eric Copeland of Creative Soul Records brought in such talent as musicians Dave Cleveland (guitar), Steve Brewster (drums), Gary Lunn & Danny Lannerghty (bass), Jason Webb and Blair Matthews (keyboards), at the same time sharing his own talent on keyboards and tapping into the creative genius of Steve Dady at Sunset Blvd Studios, engineer/producer/musician extraordinaire Jonathan Crone, and photographer Erick Anderson through the lens of his camera and design work.

Skylar Kaylyn has performed at Christian music festivals and events all across the United States, including the Ingite Festival in Meadville, PA, Nehemiah Fest in Smitheville, MO, Hills Alive in Rapid City, SD, Reach Out Music Fest in Cortez, CO, Connection Music Fest in Norwalk, IA, and LifeLight of Sioux Falls, SD.  In 2015, she performed on the LifeLight main stage after winning a regional Christian Festival Association talent competition.  She was also very excited to share the stage with Citizen Way and the Florida band, Cadence, for the historic Red Rocks Easter Sunrise Service in Colorado in 2015.  

Skylar Kaylyn’s third album titled, "This is Love," released in October of 2016 with the help of talented Nashville producers, Riley Friesen and Nathan Dantzler, and the talented graphics designer, Sherlan Gittens of SVG Graphics.  Gathering love songs she had written for family and friends on different occasions, she compiled those songs with some written of her own love story, as well as songs about God’s love for us and our love for Him. She played multiple instruments that she had never picked up before, including the banjo and accordion.  Skylar was also very honored to have Jon Steingard of Hawk Nelson sing with her on the title track, "This is Love.”  She was privileged to finally meet him when they both performed at LifeLight the month before the album release. 

Touring with the Iowa band Bread of Stone in the summer of 2013, Skylar Kaylyn was profoundly impacted by their hard work ethic and talents, their love for the Lord and others, and their desire and efforts to serve anyone with whom they come in contact.  A year later, meeting back up with Bread of Stone for a festival tour, she met her husband-to-be, the band’s new drummer.  Upon getting married in the spring of 2017, she will be joining the Bread of Stone family and ministry, touring with them, helping with their production company, and continuing to sing and serve anywhere she can.  Skylar Kaylyn wants to thank all her amazing fans for their constant support, and hopes they will continue joining her on this ever-changing journey of life and ministry!

What others are saying about Skylar Kaylyn:

 

I was blown away by the maturity of Skylar's writing on the new album we just created for her. Song after song, I found myself loving each one. Veteran Christian music industry session players, engineers, and others here in Nashville were also very impressed.  I think it's the authenticity in her songs that is most effecting. You never get the feeling she is 'trying to write a song,' but that they come from a place of realness. The lyrics and melodies flow simply, and hit home well.  It's been a complete pleasure to work with her on this project. I'm a fan!  Eric Copeland, President of Creative Soul Records, Nashville, TN



 

I have had the opportunity to work with many artist – both nationally known signed artists and independent artists as a promoter, technical coordinator and as a musician.  I would rank Skylar Kaylyn high on my list of favorites.  Not only is she a talented songwriter and performer, she exhibits a very unique quality not often found in today's music industry professionals – HUMBLENESS!  She is very accommodating and flexible with promoters and venue operators.  She is equally comfortable taking the big stage or performing for small groups and always demonstrates deep gratitude for any opportunities to share the message of Jesus Christ with any who will listen.  Skylar is an excellent role model for young ladies (and old ones too!)  I would highly recommend booking Skylar Kaylyn for your next event!"  David Lin, Nehemiah Festival and Smithville Christian Family Day Coordinator, Technical Production Manager for His Song Evangelism Ministries, Lead Singer for 9th Hour

 


 

We had the joy of getting to know both Skylar and her manager/mom last year through our mutual friends, Bread of Stone.  Skylar performed at our 2014 Celebration Life Festival and I was especially shocked at her level of spiritual maturity for such a young artist.  We were equally impressed with her ability to tap into the cultural pulse of this new generation and communicate biblical principles so effectively and clearly through her music, while leaving a definitive impression on the hearts of all generations in attendance the night she performed.  Skylar has a true calling and the anointing of God to equip her to impact not just Wyoming where she is from, but I believe the whole world in God's time.  The girl is totally in love with Jesus Christ, and is not one bit bashful about sharing her faith in Him!   If she is coming to a church or event in your community, I strongly recommend you make a point to take your entire family to witness the work God is doing in this young woman's life!  Ellis Lucas, President of HSE Ministries and author of the book, "The Potter and the Clay"

Skylar was refreshing to serve with. She has a transparent heart that is easily translated in her lyrics. She has a bright future ahead of her and I look forward to being there to see it.  Ben Calhoun of Citizen Way

 


 

KCMI has had the pleasure of working with Skylar on several occasions, and it’s always been a joy to hear her share her love for Jesus through her music and testimony.  We’ve also had the pleasure to meet her family, and it’s been a real encouragement to me to see a family who is “sold out” to Jesus and lives their faith.  We have nothing but good to say about our dealings with this dear family, and are thankful for the ways Christ is working through them and through Skylar’s music!  Gary Almquist, General Director, Christian Media Incorporated

 


 

This past August, we at the First Baptist Church of Scottsbluff were greatly blessed by the talent and grace of an amazing young lady by the name of Skylar Kaylyn.  With just her guitar, a couple of accompaniment tapes, and a winsome and joyous spirit, she sang about her walk with the Lord, and offered a message of hope for all who were present.  Skylar may be young in age, but has a presence and heart well beyond her years.  Her smile is infectious, and her confidence in what she does draws the listener into her music.  As an up-and-coming Christian artist, Skylar has a bright future ahead of her.  We are most definitely bringing her back to our community!  Rev. Gary Cole, Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Scottsbluff, Nebraska

 


 

We have been very fortunate at New Life to host Skylar two times.  I was so impressed with her talent, character, and charisma the first time, and then discovered she possesses even more of these than I thought when she returned a few weeks later.  Her honest from the heart music and message have something to say to everyone in the audience.  Skylar is genuine and very much a young lady of God, and I love how much my daughter and the youth of our church look up to her!  Randall Weinzierl, Family Pastor of New Life Church, Gillette, WY

My name is Johnny Britt. I've been a professional recording artist, producer and vocal coach in Los Angeles for a number of years.  I first met Skylar through a friend in the business who asked me if I'd consider giving this little girl from Wyoming vocal lessons.  At first I was skeptical, but after meeting and working with her I noticed immediately that she was very special.  She carries the intangibles that an artist/writer needs to make it in this industry today.  She is the real deal ... it is an honor to recommend and help guide this gifted young singer as she matures as a professional spreading her gift of song and voice to the Glory of God!!!   Johnny Britt, www.JohnnyBritt.com

Skylar Kaylyn is a young, singer/songwriter with a relevant message for this generation.  Not only does her sweet voice soar with liquid luminescence to the listener, she also stands proud and unabashed of her faith.  This character trait, along with the talent with which she has been gifted, inspires us to pass her music on long after we have listened to the last note of her original songs.  Her music connects people to people. Her youth and passion for life are ingredients that, when mixed with music, permeate the hearts of everyone within a listening view.  Skylar’s music leaves a ‘feel good’ sensation with every audience.

It has been my privilege to watch Skylar grow up from just a small child to a very fine young lady.  God has blessed her musically.  It is the desire of her heart to use this ability for the honor and glory of Christ.  Her music will be both positive and uplifting.  I would highly recommend that you consider her for a music ministry.  Denzil G. Mauk, former Senior Pastor at Wheatland Bible Church, Wheatland, WY

Skylar Kaylyn's story could easily be titled, "Skylar Goes to Nashville." Skylar is a small town girl with a huge heart. She grew up in rural Wyoming, but she is destined for something much different than the quiet life of a country girl. Born into a very musical family, she showed signs from a very early age that music would one day be her second-most fervant passion. Her love for Jesus is number one, and her faith is evident in the songs she writes and performs. For "In My Head," her Sophomore release, Skylar "headed" for Nashville. There she found the guidance, mentorship and the helpful talent she needed to take her game to the next level. "In My Head" is a truly stunning effort. Musically, it is a sort of an amalgam of easy pop, acoustic country and folk that is not only a delightful, sometimes beautiful listen, but served to help artists such as Taylor Swift and Colbie Caillat become so well appreciated. The instrumentation is tasty and top-notch, accenting Skylar's lyrical themes perfectly. Although Skylar is just eighteen years old, over the past four years or so she has managed to become a formidable song-writer. The hooks on this album are monstrous, and are bound to stick "In YOUR Head." Lyrically, trusting in God's providence and being encouraged in your own personal faith are consistent themes. When buying this album you will be accomplishing two very worthy objectives. You will provide yourself the best listening experience of the year, and you will be helping launch the career/ministry of a very special young lady. It's a win-win. Tony Borton, personal friend and mentor

 


 

 Skylar is the consummate performer.  Beginning as early as age five, Skylar entertained audiences with her presence and her gift of entertaining.  It has been a pleasure watching her grow into a young woman whose desire to put God above all else has developed into a reward for the rest of us.  She has tenacity, believes in teamwork and brings humor and kindness to everything she does.  Skylar has a rewarding life ahead of her and I know she will use her skills accordingly.  Linda Fabian, owner of Dance Wyoming dance studio, Wheatland, WY
