“….I actually named one of my dogs after that bottle of wine. Her name is Margaux….”
– Skylar Grey, The Daily Beast

Inside Musician Skylar Grey’s Liquor Cabinet | The Daily Beast ::
“….Are there certain types of red wine you like in particular?
“I really enjoy Napa cabs. And I’m really into older wines. Wines that have age on them. I like a full-bodied red from anywhere. The oldest wine I’ve ever had is a 1919 Château Margaux.”

Wow! What was the occasion?
“It was just a night out.”

Sounds like a pretty good night out.
“I actually named one of my dogs after that bottle of wine. Her name is Margaux.”….

You’ve worked with such incredible musicians. Are any of them good drinking buddies?
“Macklemore doesn’t drink. Marshall [Mathers, aka Eminem] doesn’t drink, either. I’m trying to think who I’ve had a beer with. I’ve had a drink with Nick Jonas in the studio. He likes red wine as well, so we bonded over that.”….

Is there any musician dead or alive that you would like to share a bottle of wine with?
“Thom Yorke just because I’m a huge fan and I’ve never met him, and it would be really fun to have a bottle of wine and pick his brain.”….

Do you collect glassware as well?
“The glass is super important with wine. Drinking wine out of a good wine glass makes the whole experience so much better.”….”

Skylar Grey MLIII :: Remembering Chester Bennington – 21-JUL-2017

Following the very unfortunate passing of Chester Bennington (of Linkin Park/Dead By Sunrise/Grey Daze/Stone Temple Pilots) this past Thursday (July 20), Ms. Grey, who knew Bennington, shared a post remembering how he had impacted and influenced her.

Read her tribute below.

Skylar Grey Remembers Chester Bennington ::

The news of Chester Bennington’s death is a hard pill to swallow. His unique and powerful voice changed music and has made him a legend in this industry. I got to watch from the side of the stage many times as he performed for die hard fans and it was clear how deeply he affected their lives. I’ve never seen such dedicated fans. It’s been years since we were in contact, but he made a huge impact on my life being the lead singer of the band who signed me to my first record deal and publishing deal. My fellow Pisces was also the one who influenced me getting my first tattoo, a Pisces symbol, which happened back stage at a Linkin Park concert. Though he was an intimidating talent, he was a kind, gentle soul people couldn’t help but love. My thoughts are with his family and his band mates in this difficult time. RIP Chester, and thank you for everything. You are sorely missed.

Skylar Grey MXLVIII :: ‘Glorious’ w/ Macklemore – Reviews and Buzz

Three weeks out from the (June 15) release of Macklemore x Skylar Grey‘s much lauded Glorious, the first live performance of which received a standing ovation on The Tonight Show, many music fans and blogs have now given their opinion on the collaboration – check out a selection below!

Macklemore Teams Up with Skylar Grey | RESPECT. ::
“….here lies the single “Glorious, an inspirational cut that features acclaimed singer-songwriter Skylar Grey….”

Macklemore Drops “Glorious” | Idolator ::
“….featuring the powerful pipes of Skylar Grey, this is the 33-year-old’s best, and most autobiographical, solo offering to date….

Macklemore is in a deeply reflective mood…. He looks back on his career and comes to the conclusion that he’s right where he needs to be via Skylar’s soaring chorus. “I feel glorious, glorious, got a chance to start again,” she belts. “I was born for this, born for this. It’s who I am, how could I forget?”….”

[new music friday] | idobi ::
“….Skylar Grey, guest vocalist extraordinaire, turns the track into absolute ear candy….”

(New Music) | Respect My Region ::
“….the record sounds great, I’m not the biggest fan but I see this getting radio play and Skylar killed that hook….”

“Glorious” ft. Skylar Grey | Hillydilly ::
“….Macklemore is back with a new track featuring Skylar Grey, “Glorious”. It’s a very promising one, and, while it’s not close to fitting in to the popular musical climate (trap-leaning rap), it is a refreshing, extravagantly arranged, Budo-produced song that sounds like it was made to be played live in front of fifty thousand, and that speaks for itself….”

Inspiring New Song | Rolling Stone ::
“….“Glorious” has a rapid percussion and an energizing piano loop. Macklemore unravels a torrent of lyrics that complement Skylar Grey’s gospel-tinged hook. “Glorious” is an ode to fresh start and embracing life….”

Macklemore Returns | Sway’s Universe ::
“….pairing up with the beautiful and incredibly talented, Skylar Grey….

The wordsmith takes to this triumphant instrumental and puts together some meaningful and thoughtful wordplay, giving us something refreshing and addictive. Skylar adds her vocal touches along the way, as they come together for something solid….”

SINGLE REVIEW | ThomasBleach ::
“….“Glorious” is the lead single from Macklemore’s forthcoming solo album and it’s a big one.

Grey acts as his inner voice during the chorus and reassures him that he is doing exactly what he is meant to be doing in this life.

It’s quite the empowering track without feeling cliché or cheesy. It doesn’t have any gimmicks….and is just purely a feel good track….”
