She was born Sky Tonia Ferreira on July 8, 1992 in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California. As a young teenager, Ferreira aspired to become a recording artist and began maintaining a MySpace profile where she uploaded demos of tracks she had written herself. Her ambitions finally paid off when she signed a contract with Capitol Records in 2009.

In 2013 she released her first full length album, Night Time, My Time. Although the album received favorable reviews from critics, Night Time, My Time was not without controversy, which mostly stemmed from the album's cover, which featured a 21-year-old Ferreira topless and sullen-looking in a pointedly unglamorous shower scene, photographed by transgressive filmmaker Gaspar Noe. In the same year, she ventured into the movies for the first time with an appearance on the cannibal horror-themed film, "The Green Inferno" (2013). After the release of Night Time, My Time, Ferreira's audience took on a global scale was she joined American pop star Miley Cyrus' international Bangerz Tour, which began in February 2014, as the concert tour's opening act. While working on her second album, Ferreira appeared in several films, including Nicolas Cage crime drama "The Trust" (2016), comedy-drama "Elvis and Nixon" (2016) and Edgar Wright's action comedy "Baby Driver" (2017).
