Music career

2003–2005: Noise from the Basement

She worked with local producer and instrumentalist, James Robertson. Together, Robertson and Sweetnam worked on what would later become Noise from the Basement, her Capitol Records/EMI debut. The single "Billy S." appeared in July 2003 on the soundtrack to the movie How to Deal, and quickly took off in Canada. Two more singles were released from her debut and fared moderately on the charts. In 2004, Sweetnam went on tour over Europe and North America, as the opening act for Britney Spears on her Onyx Hotel Tour, although her performances were cut due to Spears' knee injury. In early 2005, the album was re-released with a DVD.

Skye eventually gained a bigger following with a younger crowd by doing theme songs for various television shows for children and teenagers, such as The Buzz On Maggie, Wayside, and Radio Free Roscoe, the latter of which she also guest starred on for one episode. Sweetnam then took part in five compilation albums for Disney: Radio Disney Jingle Jams, Radio Disney Jams, Vol. 8, DisneyMania 3, and DisneyRemixMania.

2006–2008: Sound Soldier

In 2006, Skye acted as the singing voice for Barbie in The Barbie Diaries. In 2006, she recorded the song "Boyhunter" in Simlish for the October 2006 release of The Sims 2: Pets. "Sugar Guitar" was featured in a Zellers commercial for the 2007 back to school season. It was also the 9th track featured in the Love For Nana - Only 1 Tribute CD for the Japanese comic Nana. Tim Armstrong and Sweetnam released the single "Into Action" in March 2007.

On August 30, 2007, Sweetnam performed at the CD release party for dodger, her first live performance since her August 4, 2005 Club Sea World in Sea World San Diego gig, and her with her new band. She performed brand new material including "Boyhunter", her version of "Into Action", "Makeout Song", "Ghosts", and "Music Is My Boyfriend".
Sweetnam was the opening act for Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter on tour.

Sound Soldier was released 30th October 2007, the same day as Bitney's Spears Blackout with leading single Human. The music video for "Human" was nominated for a 2008 MuchMusic Video Award for Best Cinematography, but lost to Hedley's "She's So Sorry".

The album was released in Japan on February 14, 2008 as stated on her MySpace page, which also featured the bonus track "Girl Like Me".

For 2nd single EMI picked (Let's Get Movin') Into Action, which previously was released as a single from Tim's Armstrong solo album (in his version). Song was used on soundtracks for Hotel For Dogs and Degrassi: The Next Generation. Skye directed herself two music videos (for Music Is My Boyfriend and Babydoll Gone Wrong) which she published on her youtube channel. Her song "Into Action" was featured in the 2010 movie, Ramona and Beezus.

2009–present: Third studio album

On August 26, 2009 Skye posted on her twitter that she is recording vocals for a song for a video game that will be released in Japan. The song was later revealed as "Lava Rock," which appears on Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll. Skye provided vocals for the song "Where I Want To Be", a song on Jun Senoue's new album, The Works. She also directed a music video for Leah Daniels' song, "Northern Senorita", and for Ashes' song "Explode (Makes My Head)". It was later revealed that she also co-wrote two more songs for Ashes: "Reckless" and "Party Song."

Throughout 2009 and 2010 she released a number of songs from the making of Sound Soldier. In her Youtube make-up tutorials she has used the songs Rock n' Roll Baby, Love Sugar Sweet, Heartbreak and Boomerang. On April 7th, 2010, Sweetnam released a song entitled "Stay" featuring Ak'Sent, on her MySpace page. It was promoted as one of her "Songs from the Vault." It was originally recorded for Sound Soldier, but "Boyhunter" was chosen instead, with Sweetnam "feeling that 'Stay' was stylistically different from the rest of the record".[4] She posted a full demo of another song, "Boomerang," on July 9th, 2010. In September 2010 she used two previously unreleased songs (MuSick and Wolves and Witches) as background music to a new make-up tutorial. As of October 16th 2010, both "MuSick" and "Wolves and Witches" appeared on Skye's myspace page as part of her "Songs from the Vault."

On April 25, 2009, Skye posted on her personal Twitter that she was at the studio. Prior to this, Skye also announced that she would be in the studio working on a new album.
