Can Skylark is an independent female entertainer leaving her infallible mark on South Africa’s entertainment industry. The launch of her independent debut album “Pure”, has garnered rave reviews with 2 number one hit singles “Nothing’s Gonna Get me Down Today” and “Everything is Cool” on music charts in South Africa. “Nothing’s Gonna Get me Down Today” was also featured as the 6th biggest song in Cape Town for 2013. Her music is playlisted on both local, as well as international radio stations across Europe. “Pure” is a fine collection of well-crafted songs ranging from soulful and catchy pop tunes to roof-raising ballads, which has been well received by her fans.
With over 14 years experience in the music industry, and embarking on her solo career, Can Skylark has since made high profile appearances on various lifestyle and entertainment radio and television shows across South Africa, and is prominent in aiding the youth and community, being a celebrity ambassador for Re-focus anti-bullying campaign alongside Chad Saaiman, JP Duminy and Jody Williams. Her dynamic nature and hypnotic aura has allowed Can Skylark to feature as a celebrity guest DJ for a leading commercial radio station, and is an agent of change in campaigning for a popular radio station’s Christmas charity drive. Can Skylark is also the pioneer behind “The Motive”, a music skills development initiative, inspiring and educating aspiring musicians on the music industry -a programme developed by her and her team.
Her tenacity and determination has gained the respect and attention of South African award-winning singer, writer and producer, and current SA Idols Musical Director, RJ Benjamin, whom together have successfully achieved yet another number 1 song, with their duet “So High” co-written by Can and RJ Benjamin.
A highlight earlier in this year, saw Can travelling to Los Angeles to work with multi-platinum award-winning songwriter, Pam Sheyne who is best known for her works with Christina Aguilera, Cyndi Lauper, Elton John and SA Idols winner, Elvis Blue. The much anticipated single is scheduled for release later this year.
If you’re one of the few that are still wondering what Can’s story is, take a look:
Can Skylark’s ability to capture a crowd has truly separated her from her counterparts in the South African music scene, through her engaging and energetic live performances only few can master. The “Girl Next Door” approach to which Can was familiarised through the sound of her music, is vastly juxtaposed with Can’s on stage presence and powerful performances at every show. This opportunity has culminated in Can Skylark reflecting an image and sound that personifies her powerful and striking presence, with the launch of her new sophomore album.
“As with any and everything in life, evolution takes place. Therefore as an artist, I firmly believe in evolving and not to ever go down as a copy of myself”, says Can. “However, maintaining the quintessential signature and musical integrity which is Can Skylark are still of the highest priority and utmost importance”, says the pop singer.
The time has come for Can Skylark to launch her sophomore album, with the pre-release of her much anticipated EP launch entitled, Overdrive. Fans can experience a new elevated sound from the pop star. More glitz and glam, a new, edgier sound with an unmistakable essence of Can Skylark that fans have come to love.
The exclusive 3 night event is being held at the Roxy Revue Bar at GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World, with special celebrity guest performances by South Africa’s prime entertainment artists RJ Benjamin and Diggy Bongz. Overdrive will see the first ever debut live performance of “So High” with RJ Benjamin and “Ain’t No Doubt” remix by Diggy Bongz! Included in the line up is SADMC Champion & World DMC Champion Finalist, DJ ONQ, on the decks while Can Skylark entertains the audience to the very edge of their seats!
