Van Nuys, CA
Born and raised in Northern California, Sibley found music and
entertainment early on and made sure she had a plan to take her
passion to a whole new level. Sibleyʼs quest to be an artist took her
to L.A., where she became a sought after girl in town, doing acting
and modeling jobs in order to pay for her studio time and develop her
skills as an artist.
She made cameo appearances in videos for artist like Usher, and heated
up the screen in David Bannerʼs popular Play video. The attention
was great, but it only fueled Sibleyʼs ﬁre. At the end of 2005,
Sibley recorded a female answer back version of Kanye Westʼs Gold
Digger, which made a big impact when it hit radio, and quickly became
a mix show & request line favorite. On the back of that momentum,
Sibley was recruited as the rapper on NeYoʼs hotly tipped R&B girl
group , LʼCreme. She recorded hot demos, learned even more about the
music industry but soon realized being in a girl group wasnʼt for her,
and that it was time to focus all of her energies on being the artist
she truly wanted to be and her solo career.
Soon Sibley began meeting and working with top producers and writers
to create a sound and style all her own. The infectious I Eat
Donuts got her off to a good start, when West Coast radio took
notice, landing her a prime time interview spot and a need for more
request lines. In addition to demos, Sibley wanted to create videos to
visually represent her sound, and when she met and collaborated with
Los Angeles based director, Ryan Goble, she had a chance to do just
that. The beautifully shot sharp and edgy videos and Sibleys strong
performances led to multiple Youtube and Myspace hits and soon caught
the eye of the music industry.
Sibley started working with producers Marc Kinchen (Ne-Yo, Pitbull),
Mars (TI) , Brian Kennedy (Rihanna, Chris Brown), Kadis & Sean (50
Cent, Pussycat Dolls).
A trip to London the summer of 2009 introduced her to outdoor music
festivals, new sounds and new styles and she was soon recording with
Ant Whiting (MIA), GreenMoney (Kid Sister) and up and coming new UK
producers Labyrinth & Inflo . Tie Me Down her collaboration with
Andre Merritt (writer of Fight For This Love & Disturbia) got a
GreenMoney remix, and was soon getting spot plays on BBC Radio 1 and
Galaxy and her creativity hit an all time high.
Sibleys music was also introduced to Stella McCartney who used I Eat
Donuts as part of the soundtrack on her Spring Summer 2010 Paris
Catwalk show. On the back of this, she received mention in New York
Times and The Wall Street Journal.
By Fall 2009 Sibley had recorded several solid hits and successfully
created a style, sound and music genre all her own. She is now
internationally recognized as a one to watch female artist poised
for very big things in 2010.
