    After a full year in the studio and countless performances later, New York City’s own SKYFACTOR is back with a brand new album, A THOUSAND SOUNDS. This collection of 11 songs truly represents the acoustic-based rock/pop quartet in its finest form yet, thanks to an even deeper level of songwriting and an ever-growing soundscape.

    From the country-ish stomp of the title track to straight-ahead rockers like “Long Way To Go” and “The Whole World’s Here”, to the gravitas of meaningful cuts such as “Better for the Moment”, “Lost At Sea” and “What We Had”, the album is full of hooks at every turn, while always staying fresh and unique.

    Available now on all streaming services as well as good ol’ CD (remember those?), response from fans worldwide has been nothing short of electric so far. Local radio has begun to play the lead single “A Thousand Sounds”, which features guest backing vocals from Ninja Sex Party frontman and Game Grumps YouTube star Dan Avidan (a.k.a. “Danny Sexbang”).

    Always a force to reckon with live, the band kicked off their tour schedule with the official THOUSAND SOUNDS album release show at NYC’s famed Cutting Room, and is gearing up for a slew of high-profile shows this spring and summer, including legendary NYC venues The Bitter End and The Mercury Lounge, plus a very special performance Saturday May 11th at Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.

    Formed on a rooftop in the East Village of New York City over a decade ago, SKYFACTOR was born when the musical paths of longtime friends Bob Ziegler and Jason Taylor (formerly of Michigan’s Brother Rabbit) and brothers Jon Rubin and Cliff Rubin (formerly of NYC’s Sky Blues) finally crossed. Almost instantly the songs started flowing, and they knew they were on to something.

    Their debut album Daydreams received much critical acclaim and notice, including that of MTV’s hit show Teen Mom, who chose the track “OK” as their season 2 finale theme, resulting in thousands of downloads and streams from around the world. The band then honed its musical chemistry and style for Signal Strength, which further spotlighted personal, insightful lyrics backed by a big acoustic guitar and one very powerful rhythm section. The guys even had a song from the album prominently (and humorously) featured on Adult Swim’s Eric Andre Show, resulting in even more buzz for the band.

    Cut to 2019 and just one listen to A THOUSAND SOUNDS proves these guys know how to craft memorable and powerful songs that grab you from the get-go -- and won’t let go. SKYFACTOR’s simple but effective melodies combine with edgy dynamics to take the listener on a ride each and every time.

    A THOUSAND SOUNDS – and all of SKYFACTOR’s music - can be found on iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon, as well as Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play. Reviews, tour dates, new merch and plenty of music videos can be found at www.skyfactormusic.com
    Greetings From Anywhere
    Greetings From Anywhere
    Formed high up on a hill in Dobbs Ferry, NY in 2007, Greetings From Anywhere mashes folk, blues, bluegrass and country into a unique roots-rock hybrid, performing with the gritty, impromptu abandon of a good-old-time garage band. Veterans of the NYC and Hudson Valley club, pub and festival circuit, GFA features a wide array of original compositions rooted in their signature American Stomp N' Twang style.

    Graceful lead vocalist Sheila Noonan-Gorham, who's steeped in the tradition of Irish music, is joined by a supporting cast with diverse musical backgrounds; acoustic guitarist/banjoist Andrew Schriever cut his chops in the Boston folk scene, electric bassist Adam Friedman and drummer Doug Schneider are veterans of the jam band circuit, and Ken Lockwood plays fiddle with various NY bands in genres from jug-jazz to rock.
