SKYLIGHT Release Debut Album 'Made for More'
On first listen of Skylight's debut album, Made For More, produced and recorded with Grammy- and SAMA-winning producer, Darryl Torr, it's clear that their music is 'more" than a few melodic chord progressions strung together. As pleasing as it is to the ear, the songs are equally embedded with a sense of meaning and purpose that has elevated Skylight to where they are today, not only as musicians but as individuals as well.
Spreading the need for love and peace, Skylight work together with those around them to raise awareness worldwide, and it is with this sentiment that they hope their music will have broader reach, extending out to international markets. It has taken the band over two years of writing, pre-production and recording to produce their debut album, but one thing for sure - it doesn't disappoint.
Skylight's roots can be traced back to 2009 when three like-minded musos - Greg Jorden (vocals and guitar), Peter Klein (bass) and Bradley Cumming (drums) and later Wesley Ayliffe (guitar and back-up vocals) - joined forces after performing at a music event. The trio soon began writing music together, the chemistry instantaneous, and their individual visions started to take form.
In 2010, their song Always Enough became an instant hit, and it wasn't long before the track secured them a spot on the "Joburg Day" line-up, performing in front of 18 000 people. Early 2013, Skylight released their first single Give It Up, a taster of what they have to offer and it only gets better. This summer the band introduces the catchy hooks of Born To Love You, taking their fans into 2014 with a smile.
There is one thing, of course, that cannot be expressed through written word but must be seen and heard in person, and that is Skylight live in action. The energy generated from a single performance is enough to keep you going for an entire week, but if all else fails; now you can pop a disc into your CD player and enjoy!
