Skye Steele Discusses "All That Light"
Thu, 25 May 2017 09:01:29
Born in Montana, residing in New York, Skye Steele has an eclectic palette. His forthcoming album, All That Light, mixes his violin-based folk-art sound with 808s, Moog basslines and synths, and takes full advantage of each specific element. The result is a smooth and diverse effort that creates its own classification.
The record was written in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley before Steele headed to Los Angeles to record. What might seem like an odd juxtaposition of destinations is what makes Steele’s music unique. It’s where nature and machine meet, where rural and urban collide. The new record looks out at nature and the interplay between energy and matter.
ARTISTdirect caught up with Skye Steele as he was waiting for a flight in the Burbank Airport to discuss exactly how his record came together, why he always keeps a notebook with him, and what is it that keeps him making music.
