    1Sound Soldier [2007]
    2Noise From The Basement [2004]


    With influences like Alanis Morissette, Green Day and Nirvana, singer Skye Alexandra Sweetnam (born in May 5 1988) grew up in the tiny Toronto suburb of Bolton, where she studied singing and dancing from a young age. By her early teens she'd moved on to songwriting, and recorded a demo with the help of a local Bolton music school.

    A combination of luck and marketability brought the demo to the attention of Canadian label execs, who hooked Sweetnam up with a local producer and instrumentalist named James Robertson. Together, Robertson and Sweetnam hammered out the structure of what would become Noise from the Basement, her Capitol Records debut. The single "Billy S." appeared in July 2003 on the soundtrack to the Mandy Moore's movie How to Deal; the song's sassy popternative sound proved quite popular, making some waves in the U.S. and hitting the top spot on Canada's Disney Channel-style offering, YTV. Sweetnam supported the single with a tour of summer camps. She also began downplaying the comparisons to Avril Lavigne to whoever would listen, though the reference seemed valid based on their similar upbringing and sculpted, rock-based sound.

    Sound Soldier was released 30 October 2007, the lead single, "Human" was nominated for a 2008 MuchMusic Video Award for Best Cinematography, but lost to Hedley' "She's So Sorry". For the second single EMI picked "(Let's Get Movin') Into Action", a rework of her previous single with Armstrong. Skye directed two music videos herself for "Music Is My Boyfriend" and "Babydoll Gone Wrong". Throughout 2009 and 2010 she released a number of songs from Sound Soldier. In her Youtube make-up tutorials she has used the songs "Rock n' Roll Baby", "Love Sugar Sweet", "Heartbreak", "Boomerang", "MuSick" and "Wolves and Witches". Sweetnam also released a song entitled "Stay", "Boomerang", "MuSick" and "Wolves and Witches" on her MySpace page.

    Sweetnam began working on new music in 2009, also forming a new band, Sumo Cyco. They are a four piece rock / metal band who opened for Hollywood Undead in Toronto in April 2011. Sweetnam now goes by the name Sever, which is her current alter-ego. Sumo Cyco has released so far five singles: "Mercy", "Limp", "Interceptor", "Danger", and a cover of Oingo Boingo's "Who Do You Want To Be?". With each new song, Sumo Cyco directs and puts together their own music videos to their YouTube channel which as of April 2012 received over a million views.
