~Hillberry Music Festival

Skye Pollard is a singer/songwriter, performer and vocalist based out of Eureka Springs Arkansas. Born in Memphis, TN and raised in Cotton Country in the Delta Lands of Rural Eastern Arkansas, Skye was instilled with a deep love and appreciation for the raw emotion in Blues Music and storytelling in Delta Folk and Country, steeping his own music in that energy, drawing from Gospel, Soul, and RnB vocal styles to create a sound all his own. Performing since the age of 6, Skye spent his teen years and early twenties developing his craft, performing live in various projects locally and in College in Baltimore, Maryland, before returning to his home state of Arkansas. Upon arriving to Eureka Springs, Skye found a rich and thriving Music community and quickly became involved with the local music scene, competing in and winning the 72nd Annual Original Ozark Folk Festival Singer Songwriter Competition, awarding him Studio Time to Record his Debut EP and the opportunity to open for Marty Stuart. Skye has spent his time in Eureka Springs carefully honing his craft, recording his original material, and collaborating with local artists, while continuing to perform solo as a Singer/Songwriter. In 2020 Skye joined the ranks of Eureka Strings, playing lead guitar for a supergroup of musicians from the area, and has since began fronting his own band Skye Pollard and Family Holler. Since their debut, Family Holler has performed locally and regionally at some of the best venues in the state, such as George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville and Hillberry Music Festival in Eureka Springs, and look forward to performing Regionally and Nationally in the coming months. Skye’s debut EP “Masquerade” will be released in the Summer of 2022.
