Skye Alexandria Sweetnam (born May 5, 1988) is a Canadian singer-songwriter and music video director.
Skye began her career as a pop (specifically, teen pop) and pop punk musician. She released two albums: Noise from the Basement (2004) and Sound Soldier (2007). Skye also performed music for various shows such as Wayside and The Buzz on Maggie. She provided the singing voice for Barbie in The Barbie Diaries, which also features several of her songs.
