Skyview is an indie rock band from Tallahassee, Florida. The band's influences include: U2, Coldplay, Muse, Snow Patrol, The Joy Formidable, Foals, and Angels & Airwaves. Skyview has an energy-driven sound with a unqiue vibe. First formed in 2007, the band took it's first 3 years to create something different but marketable. Skyview really began playing shows in 2010, where they made a great impact. Skyview recorded their first full length album at Full Sail University and booked & performed 3 National Tours as an independent band selling over 250 physical albums to fund their tour and begin on their next project. This Fall, Skyview will be playing a few shows but they are also currently writing for their next album. A new single & music video will be available January 1, 2013.
Skyview will be playing a few shows this Fall Season mostly in Tallahassee and neighboring cities. After spending the summer on their 3rd national tour, Skyview is looking to reorganize and prepare for the spring and summer months. In the Spring alone, the band is looking to perform 30+ shows in areas where their music is marketable. They'll be booking mostly in the southeast, and not looking to tour (on a national level) until June. This Fall, Skyview will be debuting 8 or 9 new original songs. These new songs will be a harder indie rock sound. Some of the newer influences include Muse, The Joy Formidable, and Foals. During this Fall Season, Skyview is reforming it's sound & image but also they are working to market themselves online and therefore reaching more people on a national level. Check out Skyview's official show schedule to see if they've added any new dates.
Skyview's new album is now available on iTunes. The artwork was done by Tate Music Group (Mustang Oklahoma). The music was recorded at Full Sail University, Mixed by Evan Smith (of Skyview), and Mastered by Michael Ricks. "The Sound of Flight" is an indie rock album consisting of anthemic melodies, inspirational sound, and dramatic intros that build to waves of intricate layered loops with hard hitting drums, driving electric guitars and hook-lines that get stuck in your head. The intention of the album is that each listener will find themselves stepping back and visualizing their own personal "big-picture" reality.
