She also works as the celebrity and Industry Professional Coordinator for VocalizeU.
Christie Lenée has been capturing a wide audience across the US, touring frequently and delivering vibrant energy at every show. Her unique guitar work is often compared to visionaries like Michael Hedges, Bela Fleck, Andy McKee, and John Mayer- fusing folky/funky playfulness with pop/rock inspired songs and virtuosic guitar compositions. Christie has been seen many times on stage with Tim Reynolds (guitarist for Dave Matthews Band) and a stellar cast of musicians including Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Jeff Coffin, and Stanley Jordan. Her eclectic guitar skills have not only accompanied other great artists, but she has also played a multitude of instruments on her own records. An extensive original repertoire of both vocal and instrumental music showcases her extensive musical background, with studies including classical, jazz, rock, blues, folk and flamenco. Her innate ability to fuse these styles propels an eruption of harmonic fluidity, delivering profound expressions and a vibrant live performance.
Born Emmett Spooner II in Baton Rouge, La., Skyy began singing at age 3 and performing in church choirs at age 12. His sound has been compared to Marvin Gaye and Lenny Kravitz. Skyy taught himself to play acoustic guitar, eventually crafting a repertoire of more than 100 original songs combining elements of soul and rock. Skyy eventually met singer/songwriter/producer Antonio Neal and the two spent time recording and producing Skyy's first few tracks in Nashville.
