New Things Happen

The Sky Colony's beginning in 2012 was something of a quiet, harmonic, and ethereal sound, thus coining the genre "dream folk". With changes in musicians, the remaining players held onto the same elements, but shifted toward treble, beautiful and unconventional bluegrass stylings.

Yet again, as things do, changes happened and new elements were added as players were interchanged. A kind of late 60's Bay Area sound with a taste of the southern country style of that era was brought into their arrangements.

Now, as the group explores a lineup of Kyle Findley-Meier (vocals, rhythm guitar), Ben Woods Meyer (lead guitar, vocals), Jeff Lacy (drums, vocals), Marcus Nevitt (lap steel, keys, vocals), and the soon departing Henry Smartt (upright bass), the sound shifts to a country (naturally, due to location) take on chill, tonal, harmony-infused, psychedelic strain of Americana and rock of the Kurt Vile, Allman Brothers, War on Drugs, and Dawes-influenced sort.
