Eric Skye occupies a unique niche. Most often billed as a jazz guitarist, he actually plays in an eclectic and highly original style, with a range of influences from bluegrass, to blues, to vintage funk, even a little classical guitar… all threaded together with a healthy respect for the groove and pure unadulterated acoustic tone.
Skye's latest release, A Different Kind Of Blue, is an adventuresome solo acoustic guitar re-imagining of Miles Davis’ iconic 1959 record Kind Of Blue, by Pacific Northwest guitarist Eric Skye. The album was named in the top acoustic records of 2012 by Acoustic Guitar magazine.
Eric has also been featured in magazines such as Guitar Player, Acoustic Guitar, Jazziz, Jazz Improv, 20th Century Guitar, Acoustic (UK), Akustik Gitarree (Germany), The Guitar Note, The Guitar Bench, and on podcasts such as The Guitar Show, and the Fretboard Journal blog.
His music has been on National Public Radio and Public Radio International. He has performed and been interviewed on many live radio broadcasts in the United States and Europe. In the past year Eric has played all over the United States, at such notable acoustic and jazz venues as Yoshi’s in San Francisco, The Freight And Salvage in Berkeley, the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz, the Alberta Rose Theater in Portland. Plus the NAMM shows in both Los Angeles and Nashville, and at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival.
In 2011 Eric was bestowed the rare honor of having the renown Santa Cruz Guitar Company release a signature model guitar: http://ericskye.com/00-skye and http://www.santacruzguitar.com/instruments/oo-skye.
Eric is also an artist endorser for the D’Addario string company.
