Skytown is a consistently top-ranked, Acoustic Rock band from Tulsa, OK (ReverbNation.com) The early days of Skytown consisted of Dale Crain (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Tim Burress (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar), and Eliot Cooper (Drums).
In 2012 the three started writing and recording original songs. They began playing for friends and family which soon escalated to playing larger house parties. After playing a few small bars and even auditioning potential members, it was by chance that Jason Ford was at his local watering hole when he saw the band for the first time. Impressed by what he saw and heard, Jason approached the band asking if they needed another acoustic guitar player and volunteered for the job.
A couple of weeks later after a quick audition, the band was complete and as they say, the rest is history. The then band added Carson Clemishire, a national award winning banjo player, who's talent on the banjo has helped to further shape Skytown's sound and most recently, added Dave Williams on the bass guitar. This lineup of incredibly talented musicians has established Skytown as one of the most unique sounding bands making music today.
After receiving extremely positive feedback from crowds and venue owners they were playing for, the freshly charged Skytown decided it was time to take their music to the masses. After playing just one show with the complete lineup in Tulsa, word spread quickly that there was a "new sound" in town and Skytown's phone started blowing up! Skytown has since been booked every week, playing upwards of 3 shows a weekend, and have no plans on slowing down or letting up!
The band is being contacted on a weekly basis by venues and talent buyers looking to entertain their patrons and the venues have NOT been disappointed with most venues re-booking Skytown for another show as soon as they leave the stage! Skytown not only packs the house but they also bring it down! With an extremely energetic live show with plenty of crowd participation, Skytown continues to attract new fans and new listeners every time they play out.
The band is currently booking shows 7 - 8 weeks in advance and doesn't see it slowing down any time soon. In 2014 alone, Skytown has had the privilege to share the stage with such national acts as: All About a Bubble, We the Ghost, Framing the Red, Dellacoma, Black Hole Gypsy, Fists of Rage, Drugs Delaney, Kick Tree, Bluce Flea, Saving Able, Seven Days Lost, Sage Cook of Elephant Revival and many others!
Most recently Skytown traveled to Denver, CO to record their first EP with producers Glenn Sawyer and Rich Veltrop (production credits include Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine, Macy Gray, Sophie B. Hawkins and many others) at The Spot Studios.
The band is working on their release campaign and expects a physical disc to debut in 2015 coinciding with a national tour and many summer festivals.
