Brand new album from THE SKY LIFE
THE SKY LIFE have a brand new album and a sterling new single that will absorb you and instantly grab your ear. “Roots and Wings” is introducing itself to the world by way of the song “Reflective eyes,” which epitomizes the dare-you-to-pigeonhole us pop rock of THE SKY LIFE.
“Reflective eyes” folds together a number of musical aspects – alternative, singer-songwriter, acoustic and poptronica, indie and more – into a brand new creation. The song is a poignant, melodic excursion into the hearts of Justin Carter, Bobby Kuhl, Dwight Werbicki, Daniel Hooft and Josh Steffen – the artists that make up the membership of THE SKY LIFE.
Both organic and electrically charged, brimming over with ambiance, personality and emotional resonance, “Reflective eyes” dips into the tender feelings of the human heart and boasts music to complement. It reveals a batch of songcrafters interested in winning fans – but not through sizzle-for-a-second cutout copycat music.
Rather, THE SKY LIFE is focused on rich melodies and thoughtful lyrics meant to bring out something special in the listener. Far from the typical rock out and sing along music, THE SKY LIFE's songs are intended to cause reflection, inspiration and emotional intensity.
Structurally, this is accomplished through a careful melding of ambient synths, piano, guitars and percussion which, according to THE SKY LIFE, “belt out their own songs and lyrics, thoughtfully crafted to connect.”
Twenty-two-year-old guitarist and vocalist Justin Carter hails from Alberta, Canada. Kuhl, 21, was originally a drummer but now serves as pianist for THE SKY LIFE. Josh Steffen, 23, has recently joined the group playing drums. Dwight also calls Alberta home. He is 25 and plays the bass. Daniel From Medicine Hat, AB plays lead guitar for the group.
