Sky Is The Limit

High acheivement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.

-Charles Kettering

Growing up there's always been a set of rules or a level of expectation that we as our parents' children have had to abide by. "Don't do this/that..." along with many other wise sayings that were for the most part were and probably still are the catalysts that continue to shape us into who we are as maturing adults. It's a standard. It's the standard that's been put in place generationally and culturally for us to either meet or exceed.

Generally speaking, most may perceive this standard as silly or stupid initally, but as we come into our own and experience enough, "the standard" starts to make some kind sense. However, the standard isn't something that's foreign to our next feature (Singer/Songwriter/Program Host) Dana Sky.

Consistently setting new standards for not only herself, but also for her career, Dana strives to reach new heights with the desire to progress. Dana Sky is the limit and there isn't anything she sees herself settling for.

[As Told To Why Blue Matters]

So tell us a little bit about yourself:

Hello world, my name is Dana Sky Faison. Im in my early 20's(a woman never tells her age). I am in the entertainment business but I have so many other interest that consume my off time! I love to read,write, do almost anything outdoors, people watch, and Randomly break out in song and dance in a crowd of people on Wall street. Cooking and Baking are two things I love to do but don't do it enough! My future husband better have a sweet tooth ; )! I love to meditate, Dance, Cheer, Make fun music, Perform, and Walk my dog. Im such a normal "dorky" person. I enjoy old Star Trek reruns, watching the Boon Docks, Making Silly Music videos with my best friend and every now and then a good "Stoli around the world" and dinner with my girls! Oh and did I mention I'm a huge WWE fan!

What do you like most about music and entertainment?

I like being able to express myself with out having to actually tell my life story. I could be talking about someone else's personal life but still releasing the stress that I have day to day! I love reaching people with out physically touching them or speaking straight to them! I love to teach others and to Learn as much as possible.

How long have you been involved?

I've been in the industry since I was 9 years old. I modeled for the Lyons Group NYC and I started Professional Singing with my father. We did Shows for this organization called HAI(Hospital Audiences Inc.). We traveled through out NY state singing at different Hospitals, Shelters, centers and homes. Its something I cherish and still do today! It brings me so much joy knowing that my voice can bring a little bit of hope and Happiness into someone's life!

What inspires you?

Everyday life inspires me, My niece and nephews acting a fool, My best-friend breaking up with her boy friend, My Dog getting sprayed by a skunk! I could go on and on but I wouldn't want to bore you!

How have you been able to balance what you do?

Having my parents show me the way as a young lady has prepared me for the craziness that I live today!My father was always balancing a regular nine to five then performing at night from Ten P.M. to two A.M. From the first time I performed with him (pic on twitpic) I knew this was the life I was meant to live and I knew no matter what obstacles came my way I would fulfill that destiny.

Where do you see yourself 5 yrs from now?

Oh Gosh, I See my self at the premiere of a movie that I am staring in; which is two days before the release of my sophomore album! :)I would hope to be in a relationship maybe even talking marriage, but hey thats just the small town girl talking!

Any future projects?

Im writing and recording an ep, as of right now, I'm on the hunt for new Management so if anyone out there is interested HOLLA ;) I'm singing 3-5 days out of the week so hit me up on twitter (Dana_Sky) and I'll let you know where I'll be performing. I'm hosting and Associate Producing a new show on called the Memo, So look out for that! I also want to design my own swimsuit line but you'll have to wait a little bit for that one!

Any advice for those who want to pursue their music and entertainment aspirations?

Never give up! Don't let anyone tell you your dream is out of reach! When people try to pull you down rise above it! Remember that not everyone will agree with you and to take a lot of things with a grain of salt, All in all this is a business and to keepa business mentality, don't get to emotional because you may lose out on a lot of things if you take it to heart!
