Conquer Exclusive: Interview with Skye Dumont

We here at Conquer had the opportunity to interview the incredibly talented vocalist, Skye Dumont. Getting to know Skye a little more, it is safe to say that she is the full package. Beautiful and poised, voice of an angel, well educated, and a drive to use her music as a force for good in the world. Ranging from pop hooks to full blow Italian arias, this artist can sing it all and sing it well, and she uses those vocal abilities to inspire and move those that hear it. She’s so much more than just another pretty face!

Conquer Entertainment: Tell us a bit about yourself and where you’re from and where you’re going.

Skye DuMont:  Hi everyone! I’m Skye DuMont, a normal girl from Florida who loves singing opera, pop, and leading worship. I am blessed enough to have done all three professionally! I attended college at the Manhattan School of Music in NYC studying vocal performance under the tutelage of Mignon Dunn. I also love modeling, health and fitness, beauty, fashion, and empowering women and building community on social media! My goal is to always release music with a message and inspire people and make them feel like they belong. Unity within diversity is such a beautiful thing to me.

CE: What have been some of the biggest influences for you and your music? Where does your inspiration come from?

SD:  One of the biggest influences for me and my music are honestly going through an intensely rough childhood filled with all kinds of abuse, drugs, and neglect, and being able to come through that and stand here today healed and whole again. Music was always part of my healing process and I am whole again today because of it. I never want to forget where I came from, it keeps me humble. Musical influences include: Maria Callas, Jazmine Sullivan, Edith Piaf, The Beatles, Jamiroquai, Barbara Streisand, Lana Del Rey, Beyonce, and of course Mariah Carey. I love pulling inspiration from all different eras and genres of music. I always think there is something to be learned from each artist/group of artists and I want to continue to be  passionately curious and open. I strive to learn something new every day. Growth is key. Believe it or not my favorite instrument is the trumpet. I love horns and strings. They always make me feel something.

CE: For those who haven’t heard your music, how would you describe your sound in one sentence?

SD: Haha, this question makes me giggle. I don’t know if I can describe it in just one sentence because honestly…it’s  kind of like, what day are you asking??  I would have to say no matter what mood I’m in or genre I am singing my music is always passionate, is ALWAYS diverse from day to day, and should always have a message and make you feel something. I believe life is too short to only do one style of music when there are so many different genres that are beautiful and filled with their own nuggets of unique gold.

CE: What’s your opinion on music streaming services such as spotify and pandora?

SD:  I absolutely love them! I always discover new incredible artists on each of them!

CE: Do you have any advice for fans trying to make it in music?

SD: Absolutely! Always stay true to yourself. Check your heart and your motives to make sure you are doing it for the right reasons, that your motives are pure – that you simply love it and are passionate about it. Other than that, when you release content CONSISTENCY IS KEY! Also, professionalism is huge. Don’t think just because you are a talented musician you can be a diva, not show up on time, and not have your music memorized. Be respectful and kind to other people and their time. One of my favorite quotes is “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”. Don’t take your natural gift for granted. ALWAYS work at it. ALWAYS try to grow in your craft! Last but not least, if it’s your dream DON’T QUIT! ESPECIALLY when it gets hard.

CE: Got any upcoming events or projects we should be excited for?

SD: As of right now I will be consistently doing performances in the New Orleans and North West Florida area! There are also some conversations going on about collaborating on a project with other conquer artist Rome Stevenson that I am excited about. I am going to be leading worship at churches in Florida as well! Keep up with me on my Youtube channel for new videos every week! Channel name is Skye DuMont Music

I had so much fun chatting with you all! Thank you so much for having me. Looking forward to connecting more soon!
