Your name is Sky but you go by Noosa. How did you come up with the name Noosa? Well, I lived in Australia for a bit a couple years ago and Noosa is this town I went through quickly on my way up the coast. I was living on the Gold Coast. And it was a really rainy day and it was really magical. But this town, Noosa, I was there for like an hour, and it was just so beautiful to me. And Australia is where I found my voice. I wrote my first song in Australia.

Why were you living in Australia? Just for fun. I quit school and I was like, I’ve got to get out of here. I convince my friend in college so study abroad there.

What school did you go to? I went to the University of the Arts in Philly, for film and animation.

How long have you been a musician? I started playing piano when I was eight. I don’t really play much piano anymore. Then I started playing guitar when I was ten, and I wrote my first song two years ago.

So what’s your journey been like as a musician? It seems like very recently you’ve become a songwriter. I guess in high school I knew what I was going to do in the long run was music, but I did not know how I was going to go about it. I figured, Oh, I’ll play guitar for some band. Because I wasn’t a songwriter. I stopped playing guitar for two years in college, and when I started writing songs, I put some of them up on YouTube just to see people’s reactions. I was not comfortable with my voice at all. And through that I met my producer, Micky Vallen.
