Skye Zentz

Skye Zentz is an accomplished singer songwriter and regionally notable ukulele player from Norfolk, VA. A hometown gal, Skye's love for her city inspired a grassroots music video for her original song "The Tide", which won the 2016 Veer Music Award for Music Video of the Year. Her eclectic, soulful music is singable and warm, once described as a "cozy home with many wildly decorated rooms". In 2017, Skye composed the original music for the new play "Alice", which made its debut in April 2017 at Old Dominion University, where Skye served as Music Director. Skye's Emmy-Nominated educational children's songs for the WHRO Educational series "Green Beats" can be seen regularly on our local PBS Kids channel. Skye has been teaching at The Muse Writers Center since 2012 and considers it her home away from home.
