There are bands out there that are on the cutting edge, breaking new ground and pushing musical boundaries. While The Skylight Crowd certainly wishes those bands luck, they definitely don’t fall into that category.
“If we’re really honest with ourselves, our sound is fundamentally based on the music we like,” smiles singer Keith Porter. “Bands like Counting Crows, Train and Hootie and the Blowfish are the reason we exist. We’ve been influenced by that genre for fifteen years, and now we’re creating music that would fit into that world.”
