Skyler Wind, natively Claudia Wind, is a 23-year-old Swiss-Canadian singer-songwriter. Born in Singapore and raised in Erlenbach ZH multilingually with (Swiss-) German, English and French, the artist began writing her own songs at the young age of eight years old as a way of processing the world. Talent, passion, ambition, gratitude, modesty and an extraordinary amount of diligence belong to the young musician’s stand-out qualities.
After several successful single releases, Skyler Wind gained a lot of national and international attention last year through her single “Digital Pressure”. Wide-ranging airplay (rotations on SRF3, RSI Rete 3, Radio Swiss Pop, Radio 1, Radio Sunshine (No. 1 on the listener charts), Energy Discover & in Germany, UK and Canada and many more), a direct entry to No. 3 on the iTunes charts, a total of more than 200’000 streams on Spotify, 158’000 views of her music video “Crazy About You” and over 10’000 followers on Instagram reflect the steady growth of this young artist.
Her musical journey now leads to her next release: “worst thing”. Another massive step forwards, both musically and as an artist gaining maturity. Modern and exciting, “worst thing” captivates the listener from the first note. Clever lyrics paired with Skyler Wind’s simultaneously sensitive and powerful voice, inspiring young and old audiences alike, are this song’s true USP.
The song “worst thing” is a modern love story. Almost. It’s as painfully relatable of a song as it gets. The track excels in reflecting the international zeitgeist of 2021 pop music, both in its content and execution.
A quote from Skyler Wind:
“While my last single ‘Digital Pressure’ was about my experience with social media as a whole, and how we must increasingly rely on it to communicate, given the current global environment, ‘worst thing’ gets much more personal. Inspired by true events, I wrote this song about the sheer dread I’ve felt of potentially ruining something that’s good by confessing my feelings to someone.
Did it go over well? That’s not what matters.
The song touches upon a growing restlessness, the vulnerable truth and reaching a point of no return by no longer holding back. It’s about being true to yourself, knowing that the consequences might hurt, and expecting the worst, while always hoping for the best. Ultimately, it’s about learning that no one defines your worth but you.
In today’s world, these watershed conversations are likely to happen online or over text message. After all, what’s the worst thing that could happen?”
A further career milestone is accomplished.
And Skyler Wind's exponential journey continues.
