Biography

Sky Shelton is a talented singer/songwriter born in the Mississippi Delta. He has traveled the U.S. playing in all areas of our great country starting from the deep south, and stretching all the way to New York and Hawaii. Being a preacher’s son also gave him the opportunity to travel, and play with many Christian bands throughout his career. In 2003, he had the honor of opening for todays well known artists, Jason Mraz and Nappy Roots. These travels have enabled him to have a large, underground fan base who have eagerly awaited his new album release.
Sky is a true musician in every meaning the word can portray. His talent is off the charts in all areas of creativity. Composing music, vocal arrangements, lyrics, and creating beautiful melodies are Sky's specialty. This combines nicely with his super powerful voice that is smoother than silk. He also has a 5 octave vocal range that other male singers only dream of.

Musicianship Background:
Sky began playing bass at the early age of nine years old. Not long after, he was playing bass in a Christian band with his father, traveling to youth camps and churches all over the south. At the age of 14 the guitar chose Sky and he was blessed with a God-given talent. He was an overnight prodigy, even surprising his father who was also a guitarist. His father, Joe Shelton, has played guitar for artist such as Percy Sledge, The Drifters, The Shirelles, and toured as the opening act for the Zombies during the 60’s. In the late 70’s Joe met God in a very intimate way and dedicated his life to preaching the word and playing contemporary gospel across the nation. Not only did this strengthen Sky’s faith but it also gave him the opportunity to excel as a guitarist. Being an amazing guitarist is what got Sky Shelton’s name out to the world and it expanded even further when he began playing in a band called Rhymes With Orange.
Sky Shelton wrote the music and popular rifts of all Rhymes With Orange’s songs. They were very popular in Oxford, especially after winning Ole Miss’s Battle of the Bands in 2003 and having the number 8 most requested song on Rebel Radio. A few years later the band broke up over artistic differences and Sky discovered another hidden talent, his voice. Sky had began to sing at the age of 18 but did not really pursue singing until he did not have a front man anymore. That is when he began to sing, write, and play his own songs. To his, and many others, surprise his voice was equally (if not more) impressive than his guitar skills. This opened a whole new world of opportunities to him as he moved to Nashville to pursue his career in music. Now Sky has released his first album titled "New Sound Old Soul" which is all written, recorded, and performed by him. His talent is off the charts when it comes to originality and creativity. A part of the music business Sky loves is winning over new fans. Once fans hear his amazing talent that feeling of love is mutual. Sky Shelton is now preparing to travel and promote his outstanding album titled "New Sound Old Soul."
