Sky-Pony is an art-pop band with theatrical roots. Based in Brooklyn, they've built a cult following for their lushly-orchestrated, darkly ironic songs and their shows which blur the lines between rock concert and performance art. In the past they've collaborated with circus artists, burlesque performers, monologists, even a fortune teller - as well as for creating the original theater piece The Wildness at Ars Nova in 2016 (nominated for a Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical). In 2016, the band released their debut LP Beautiful Monster on Knitting Factory Records, to strong reviews. That same year they also premiered their rock-theater hybrid piece The Wildness, presented by Ars Nova in collaboration with The Play Company. That too received strong reviews, and the show was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical. Alongside Worsham and Jarrow, the Sky-Pony lineup also features David Blasher (cello), Eric Day (bass), Kevin Wunderlich (guitar), Perry Silver (drums) plus Katie Lee Hill & Jessi Suzuki (backup vocals).
