About

SKY Covington is a singer-songwriter who has been writing and performing most of her life. Her music is as fascinating as her head and hair styles - which range from a full afro to a shaved head. All are accented by her signature beaded forehead and nose. Born and raised on the west side of Detroit, like many free-spirits, she had an unconventional but impressionable start.

She left home and married at 15, and when the marriage fell apart, she turned her heart fully toward her craft.

By 19, she was committed to living the life of a musician. She spent three years traveling the states and the globe, making work and art however and wherever seemed like the right path.

Eventually she landed in New Orleans where, with the help of fellow poet-activist John Sinclair, she settled into a residency at the Audubon Hotel. At the urging of her mother Sky returned home in the late Spring of 2005.
Though primarily known for Jazz, Sky spans multiple music genres. She has won nurmous awards including "Outstanding Jazz Vocalist" at The Detroit Music Awards in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016 and Detroit Black Music Awards "Best Jazz Vocalist in 2010.
