Bio

Sky Island brings the world to it's listeners. We have toured Asia, Europe and the Americas for 15 years studying and absorbing the sounds and vibrations of these places. Our mission is to bring high vibrational, consciousness raising sound energy to groups of people who want to dance and revel in this existence. We believe that all who live on this planet are citizens of the world who deserve to reach ecstatic transcendence and hear quality music as often as desired. In a media culture where product is driven by profit we remain idealistic and strive to serve our listeners by providing them with quality music that is both powerful and gentle, deep and pure. This music is safe for people of all ages and has no harmful side effects! In the tradition of Airto Moreira and Manu Chao, we sing our songs in a mix of English, Spanish, Nepali, Shipibo, Quechua, Sanskrit and Japanese. We have played together for about 15 years in differnt formations and lineups under a variety of names including but not limited to Spontane, Rogue State, Multipass, Ether, The New London Beat Collective and the Apocalypse House Band. Mason (vox/guit), Noah (bass) and Jason (drums) are old friends from school. Jed (keys) is also a founding member of the current incarnation of the group. Sammy (flute/sax) joined the group via electronic correspondence recording on Chain Lightning (2009). Cailen (violin) also joined the group in 2009 durring an acoustic tour of the southeastern US. Daniel (vox/keys/guitar) joined the group on the band's 2009 tour of Japan. Our primary influences are Airto Moreira, Bob Marley, Alice Coletrane, The Police, Roni Size and Agustus Pablo. We pride ourselves on having solid chops and a nice rapport with audiences.
