She re-entered the competition in 2011 with her radio-ready hit "Masquerade" where the singer's perseverance placed her 3rd at the Swiss-Italian final of the nationally-televised show. With such exposure, Scilla caught the eye of world-famous clothing brand GUESS who has endorsed her. The energetic singer recently moved to Los Angeles to record her upcoming project and graduated from Hollywood's Musician's Institute in 2011.
Working non-stop on perfecting her craft, the pop/rock princess has made it a point to highlight her independence. Slapping adversity and weakness in the face, she releases her single "Barbie Doll" co-written and produced with Rafael Moreira (guitarist for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Paul Stanley of KISS). "Barbie Doll" is filled with spunky attitude and injected with classic electric guitar rifts that force heads to nod and bodies to jump. With the release of her new single and EP, the Switzerland native is out to win over the American public as she did back home.
