If you do not recognize the name Schuyler Fisk, you may recognize her voice, as her music has been featured in both film (THE LAST KISS, PENELOPE) and television (Ugly Betty, Life Unexpected). An actress as well, Fisk (who is the daughter of actress Sissy Spacek) might be most recognized from her role in ORANGE COUNTY as Shaun Brumder's (Colin Hanks) ever-patient girlfriend, and she will soon be seen starring alongside Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper in Gus Van Sant's upcoming RESTLESS.

In between acting and creating music for the screen, Fisk is also an accomplished musician and songwriter who has toured with such artists as Sheryl Crow, The Weepies, Joshua Radin, and Ben Taylor. With her delicate vocals and instrumentation, Fisk's debut album, "The Good Stuff," was well-received and she is following that release up with her sophomore album, "Blue Ribbon Winner." Fisk's new album has a bit more of a Southern influence and is filled with new tracks such as the folksy "Tell Your Heart," the kooky "Zombie," and the beautiful "Waterbird" plus contributions from Harper Blynn to Sanders Bohlke to Jesse Harper.

Check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Fisk creating "Blue Ribbon Winner" after the break!

"Blue Ribbon Winner" comes out March 1st and the album's first single (also titled "Blue Ribbon Winner") is available on iTunes now.
