Who are SkyWay and how did the band emerged?
We are a band of 7 unique guys, charged with love for music and hunger for big dreams. When there are such people, the universe brings them together not by accident, so there is some reason we are brought together, we have yet to find out what it is, but we’re excited. We believe that the sky is the limit for SkyWay.
What stands behind the name?
That’s a very interesting question. The real answer is that even we don’t know and that’s the beauty of it. SkyWay is based on the mysterious and limitless cosmos.
Do you think your choice of music style has and audience here in Sofia?
Yes, we think so. Implementing a different style of music that’s combined by some genres is an interesting recipe. We combine pop with jazzy, funky and lo-fi elements. We are always ready to explore different music and make something unique. Our goal is to tell a story.
We believe that musical traditions should be respected and we wanted this to be the first step in our musical journey as a band. Elvis Presley is one of the people who changed music and we are honored to be able to pay tribute to his wonderful career.
Where are you headed for the future?
Only forward! The only thing we can say is that you can expect some great stuff from SkyWay’s musical kitchen.
