From a file on a computer sitting in New Delhi, to a full-fledged touring band with members from around the world formed over the internet – Skyharbor have defied convention every step of the way. The debut album ‘Blinding White Noise’ was released worldwide in 2012 to critical acclaim, and earned the band a dedicated fan following across the globe. Since then, Skyharbor have been performing regularly around the world and making waves with their distinctive brand of sweeping, ethereal prog-rock, releasing ‘Guiding Lights’ in 2014 after a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign. After a brief patch of turbulence that saw new frontman Eric Emery and drummer Aditya Ashok solidify the band’s lineup, Skyharbor embarked on a series of tours around the world, covering North America, Europe, UK and India. The future is especially promising in 2017 as a new album with Emery approaches its release and the band look set to hit even bigger stages as they march into the future.

Using music as a means of psychological introspection, Vespera’s debut embraces dark, technical guitars, intricate drums and haunting vocals, while lyrically exploring the depths of the subconscious and the unspoken strife of the human experience. Vespera is comprised of vocalist Jonathan Wolfe, drummer Jonathan Schwartz, guitarist Cairn Tse-Lalonde, and Paul Anderson on bass.
