With boyish good looks, a fresh sound and an alluring persona, twenty year-old singer, dancer and songwriter Skye Stevens is gaining momentum in the world of pop music. His debut single, "Takes All Night" shot to the #3 spot on the Billboard dance chart and dominated the Internet - raking in millions of views on YouTube while debuting at #8 on MTV's Hot Videos List.
Stevens' second single, "Rewind" saw similar success. Quickly shooting to the Top 25 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play chart with a music video featuring Pretty Little Liars star Sasha Pieterse.
Now, Stevens is back with perhaps his most infectious track yet. An amazing cover of Afrojack's "Ten Feet Tall".
I asked Stevens about the new track and video - which premieres EXCLUSIVELY here first! Check it out!
Why did you decide to cover this song?
Afrojack is an amazing artist/producer/DJ that I have a lot of respect for. He was in LA recently for a massive album release party and I received an invite through a mutual friend.
I remember Afrojack was playing his set to this massive crowd and when "Ten Feet Tall" came on, these massive fog machines blasted and about a thousand laser lights came on - filling the air with booming colors and sounds. It was just this incredible euphoric moment and was so dope just to be there. Afrojack has made some timeless records and I wanted to cover this song in hopes that he'd see it and want to get in the studio someday!
Where did the idea for the video come from?
The idea for the video is fairly simple, even though it's a pretty elaborate set up. It's based on the Chinese philosophy of the "Yin and Yang" symbol and how we live between the light and dark and highs and lows of life - which is why I'm standing in the center.
Skye Stevens has been busy touring over the past year with the likes of Phillip Phillips, Andy Grammer and Cher Lloyd and is set to tour more of America in late 2014. Be sure to check out the exclusive video for "Ten Feet Tall" and leave a comment below!
