Sky Urchin is a high energy alt rock band that combines 70's rock riffs with early 90's rock songwriting. The sounds are a continuation of the direction that the now defunct Sky Road Fly was heading in for Robert Halstead (guitar/vox) and David Payne (drums). Their former practice space neighbor, Ryan Haimerl (bass) of The Phil Kegley Band, adds even more drive to the trio that has already pummeled through their first 100 shows, including opening for the likes of Against Me!, Cheap Girls, and The Sidekicks.
The name change serves as a chance to make a new first impression with a band that is already tight as the skin on a fresh apple. Expect to hear big anthem choruses, wild guitar solos, and an intricately rich rhythm section.
