Biography

Sky Pilot is what every fan of "local" music has been craving. This is that group that combines the sounds of a band you think you've already heard on the radio, with lyrics and styles that you know you've never heard before. Sky Pilot is that band that after hearing hoards of local rappers, and rock acts that do the same thing over and over again, restore your faith in up and coming music. From the inside out this band is different than what you think you know about the "local" scene. Brian Rowland’s master craftsmanship behind the boards at Cold Clock Productions has given him the skills and knowledge he needs to be the drummer and guitar player. Kyle Layng's artistic abilities and sheer uniqueness give him what he needs to be the DJ and background vocals. And Preston...Preston is on a planet all his own, and we're just visiting. From his humble beginnings in choir to his other attempts at bands, he carries everything with him. It's hard to tell if he carries it with him in his heart or on his shoulders sometimes. When you see him on stage it’s like he has something to prove to everyone watching, and by the end of the night...he does. All three of these guys have done their own things in the past, but nothing has ever clicked like it does when they are together. I don't want to go as cliché to say it's like peanut butter and jelly, but damn it fits. Rather it's a full on set, dj, drums, guitars, Preston jumping around; acoustic set, or just Preston to the background beats: Sky Pilot does not disappoint live. At the age of 23 Preston is the youngest of the trio but his energy on stage carries him well as the front man. Brian is the quiet leader though, and with every show you can see in his eyes before the set that he knows "this is my baby." Kyle feels it too as he mans his station, but his choir background and the fact the he cofounded Cold Clock Productions with Brian takes over. At the first beat of the drum all the butterflies disappear as these 3 kings of their own craft do what they do best. If Sky Pilot comes in to your town do yourself a favor and go see them.

Lyrics

Every Wall

Written By: Sky Pilot

These words that I cant write, Things that I cant say
This world that I cant love, it all seems so fake
But this feels so real, I only wanted you to stay
I don’t wanna let go, I don’t wanna let it change

I cannot explain the difference between you and me
But I can say I brought this onto myself
Repeat the obvious, then tell me its gonna be ok

Im breaking through, Im tearing down every wall
Come find the truth, Im tearing down every wall

I hope youre right this time cause lately all hope has died inside
I swear ill try this time but its never enough
Destroy the evidence then hide it underneath my skin
Then tell me, its gonna be ok

Im breaking through, Im tearing down every wall
Come find the truth, Im tearing down every wall
