Feeling a bit camera shy


The SKY CIRCUIT are a new original rock band from Boston. Led by guitarist/vocalist/composer Jeff O’Brien, SKY CIRCUIT was created in December of 2004, out of the still-smoldering ashes of the Exeter, NH rock outfit, the Ninth Satellite, with the help of drummer/collaborator Tucker Dawson. Christopher O’Donnell, a friend and former bandmate of Dawson’s from the now-defunct group Paradaem, was forcibly conscripted to the group to play bass and produce an eclectic demo EP in a smattering of sessions during the early months of 2005. The current power trio known as SKY CIRCUIT are just now breaking onto the Boston scene with an unwavering confidence in their ability to melt the walls with the power of their irresistible songs, heady free-playing, sprawling epic compositions, and high voltage rock n’ roll.

SKY CIRCUIT's sound uses melodic rock songs as stakes in a billowing tent of free improvisation. An eclectic blend of slightly campy space-rock, dream-pop, free jazz, and heavy art rock, the band's growing repertoire of pieces just as often stand on their own as serve as vehicles for wild extended improvisation. Dawson and O'Brien, both alumni of the Berklee College of Music, have been playing together since grade school, and share a musical communication that allows for virtually limitless spontaneous experimentation. SKY CIRCUIT's goal is to marry "free playing" with extended and complex musical forms, with melodic and thematic material acting as the glue that holds it all together.

SKY CIRCUIT's influences are extremely broad, ranging from rock icons of the 60's and 70's (The Beatles, the Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Yes), to modern rock (Radiohead, Soundgarden), and jazz influences (Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Pat Martino), with healthy doses of classical, latin, and progressive rock mixed in. The hope is that purists on both sides of the pop-song/jam-band fence will recognize the value of balancing exploratory improvisation with direct and efficient song presentation. Regardless of whose opinions change, however, the driving force behind everything the SKY CIRCUIT pursue will always be the desire to move the listener to new heights of consciousness and electrify the audience.
