“EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE” is highlighted by a pair of recently released new hits, “A Train” and “Bandit,” both of which are on sale now at all DSPs. “Bandit” is accompanied by a compelling companion video recently named MTV Hits’ “Hit of the Week” after a duel premiere via MTV Hits and MTV Jams.

The “Bandit Mini Tour” begins tonight at Philadelphia’s Balcony Bar at The Trocadero Theatre, followed by stops in Boston, Washington, DC, and Charlotte (see below itinerary). A full-scale US tour schedule will be unveiled soon — for regular updates and ticket information, please visit www.justineskye.com/tour.

Justine Skye blew up the Internet at just 16 with a hugely popular Tumblr page showcasing her unique personality, style, and extraordinarily soulful voice. The Brooklyn-born artist soon joined the legendary Atlantic Records roster and in 2013 released “EVERDAY LIVING,” acclaimed by The Fader as “a seven-track EP full of simmering, lovelorn tracks.” The following summer saw the arrival of Skye’s biggest hit to date, “Collide (Feat. Tyga),” which proved a top 40 favorite on Billboard’s “US R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay” chart upon its August 2014 release. Produced by DJ Mustard (2 Chainz, YG, Jeremih, Kid Ink), the track’s companion video is even more successful, earning more than 1.5 million views thus far at Skye’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AgYGrXxEIg.

Skye has received rapturous attention from a variety of high profile media outlets, including features in SEVENTEEN, COMPLEX, NYLON, The Fader, V, Ladygunn, and Galore. Recent highlights include Teen Vogue naming her among “the seven singers who are shaking up the music scene” in their “2015 Music Issue.”
