Most often billed as a jazz guitarist, Eric Skye actually occupies a unique niche, exploring areas between Americana, jazz, and blues, all threaded together with a healthy respect for groove and unadulterated acoustic tone. Skye’s release, A Different Kind Of Blue -a solo guitar re-imagining of the Miles Davis’ iconic Kind Of Blue- was acknowledged by the Davis family and named in Acoustic Guitar magazine’s top ten albums of 2012. His 2015 release, Artifact, with longtime Jackson Browne guitarist Mark Goldenberg, was also critically acclaimed. In an unexpected departure from past projects, Skye’s 2016 release, June Apple, is a collection of early American fiddle tunes arranged for mandolin and guitar. His most recent release is Ballads and Blues, a collection of jazz and blues standards and originals for solo guitar.
