Teen musician Skyler and fellow musician and singer-songwriter MacKenzie Bourg have teamed up to release a beautiful single, "Carnival" featured on Skyler's soon to be released EP out the end of July.
The pop up-and-comer, Skyler, is already paving a successful way for her fast-paced, budding music career. She released a collaboration with the hip-hop legend himself, Snoop Dogg. " Her upcoming EP is being produced by former American Idol judge, the renowned Randy Jackson.
Musician MacKenzie Bourg, has also garnered a successful music career, since he landed in the top four in the last season of "American Idol," and has a strong following due to his popularity on the show. He's also been featured on top entertainment outlets such as Billboard. Bourg's voice accompanies Skyler's vocals on their duet, "Carnival."
The lead single "Carnival" is featured on Skyler's upcoming EP and is an original, acoustic single featuring Bourg, who previously had a single "Roses" that placed in the top four on the Digital Rock Charts. The producer for the single, DK (also from Randy Jackson's team), is known for Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness (Radio Mix)." The song will officially be available for purchase and download when it debuts the end of July. The single is reflective, anthemic and the duo's harmonies and vocals blend well for a single that is an ode to unrequited love.
In an exclusive quote to AXS, Skyler states that "'Carnival'" is a song about missing someone and rekindling the flame from a lost love after realizing no matter how hard you try to move on the heart wants what the heart wants. After hearing MacKenzie's amazing rendition of Elvis Presley's 'Can't Help Falling In Love' as a finalist on 'American Idol,' I knew I wanted to work with him-- his amazing soulful voice made him my top choice for "'Carnival!'"
