Grey began performing in Madison professionally with her mom Candy Kreitlow at age 6. The duo went by the name Generations and independently recorded three albums.
Known then as Holly Brook, Grey started performing solo at 15. She dropped out of Wisconsin Heights High School at 17 to move to Los Angeles.
In 2006, Brook got her first big break and put out a major label album. Things didn't work out as she planned and she left Warner Bros. Records, she said, spending time in the Pacific Northwest.
"I kind of retreated into the woods because I was feeling like I was failing or something. I didn't know what to do anymore. I was trying so hard," she said in a 2011 interview. "It's kind of abusive to be in a relationship with the music industry, to be quite honest."
Grey said she went through a dark period but recently had a metamorphosis, emerging as Skylar Grey.
She wrote "Love the Way You Lie," with Alexander Grant and Eminem, who recorded it with Rihanna. Grey said it was inspired by her struggle with the music industry.
