Sky Country offers up warm, hazy sun-soaked Rock n Roll inspired by the coasts and deserts of the western frontier - a genuine California sound born and bred from the lineages of renegade surf culture and ramblers of the lost nowhere lands to the east.
The songs amble down the bleached highways and byways of windswept americana where guitars can still sound like bones, drums still barrel down the tracks, and poets still wink and grumble at the human heart.
These fellas are at the core of the do it ourselves spirit. Representing the DIO crew out of big sur, these dudes inspire all the brainwaves you might feel when cruzing a sun-swept pacific highway...
Listen to a track off their latest album, Warm Storm:
The Sextones are a family of music renegades known for viciously executed soul compositions and white-knuckle driving funk. Fronted by the charismatic and soulful vocalist Mark Sexton - The Sextones’ sound is a tip of the hat to the days of Tower of Power and Stevie Wonder - while actively forging the path for a new generation of soul and funk.
Based in the wild desert of Reno, NV, these young souls have relentlessly toured the United States gaining a multifarious group of loyal fans that help turn every show into an all-out funk dance party.
Give 'em a peak in the track below:
