Who Is Skylar Grey?

Skylar Grey

You may not know the name yet, but Skylar Grey is quickly becoming one of music’s most deadly secret weapons. As the first signee to producer Alex Da Kid’s Wonderland Music imprint, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter has contributed to records for Eminem and Rihanna (“Love the Way You Lie”), T.I. and Christina Aguilera (“Castle Walls”), Diddy-Dirty Money (“Coming Home”), and Dr. Dre and Eminem (“I Need a Doctor”).

The Wisconsin native, born Holly Brook Hafferman, has done a good job of keeping herself hidden. But we’ve finally been able to match a face to the name. Meet the woman behind the hits below.

    trying to stay hidden isn’t going to work if you are trying to be a star.

    I agree with the first comment, you guys really gave her a good introduction…music’s “deadly secret weapons”…I like that. Anyway I think she has an awesome voice and she has a pretty face from what I can see in the pictures.

    i fricken knew it was her. same voice as the artist Holly Brook who sang on Fort Minors “Where’d You Go” it was her. weird idk why the name change, and long pause in making music, deff talented

    Skylar Grey is definitely a cooler and more marketable name. Holly Brook sounds like a country singer name to me lol! But I had been wondering what she looked like, and she seems hot from that one image. But I love all the hooks she’s penned/sung so far, especially Coming Home & Castle Walls. Can’t wait 2 hear this single with Lupe, it’s gonna be crazy! Wonder what her solo work is going to sound like?

    [Reply]

  26. MusicAddict

    if ya dunno, shes the one who sang the hook for Fort Minor’s ‘Where’d U Go’

    I have to agree with “listen”. Do you want to be in the shadows or in the sun?

    Maybe she doesn’t want to be known? Maybe she just wants to produce what she loves? Music.

    Why are they hiding her? She’s gorgeous? Why didn’t she perform the song? Contract stories I bet….

    A phenomenal performance by all 4 at the grammy’s Her vocals were outstanding along with Rihanna together with the words of the two greatest urban poets to ever live – Eminen and Dr Dre. This was a historic performance.

    The picture at the bottom isn’t Skylar. That’s the Naoomi Rapace from the film The Girl With The Dragoon Tattoo.

    I might be wrong though. Might just be some uncanny resemblance.
