Skyeline is an Alternative Rock group from Ocean County. They formed in 2015 from members of Ocean County Vocational Technical School. The band’s influences include Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers, Deftones, Turnover and Failure. Their self-stated mission is “to experiment with letting different genres collide while retaining an honest and human element to songrwriting all while providing an entertaining live show.” Skyeline recently released the single “Three Years,” the brand new video of which is this week’s Jersey Rock Video of the Week. You can score a download of the song HERE. Before they rock Live At The Pier Skyeline will be in action on 8/1 at Winward Beach in Brick and 8/5 at Eliot’s Barber Shop in Toms River. More info HERE. Skyeline Singer Brittany Byrne will call in to Jersey Rock on Tuesday night at 11:30pm.
Skrizzly Adams has a unique sound that blends elements of Southern Rock and Hip Hop. In 2015 he won what is considered to be the most selective and prestigious songwriting competition in the world, the International Songwriting Competition Grand Prize, for his track “Tipping Point.” At home in a large-scale, well-orchestrated, presentation and just as comfortable performing alone, on a stool with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a microphone, he will be a perfect fit for Live At The Pier. Skrizzly Adams’ “Stains” EP is available now. You can score a copy HERE. Learn more at skrizzlyadams.com. He also has his own brand of beef jerky, a very hot item out on tour. You can score some at skrizzlyadamsbeefjerky.com. Skrizzly will call in to Jersey Rock on Wednesday night at 11:30 pm and we’ll premiere his brand new single “Redemption”
Long Branch Alternative Rockers Mind Riot will be on their home turf when they perform a full-band acoustic set at Pier Village On 8/7. Comprised of family and life-long friends, the band is definitely a rising force on the local scene. The group kicked off last winter’s Jersey Rock Showcase with a bang at The Saint in Asbury Park back in February. They’re great plugged in and just as good unplugged. Mind Riot demonstrated their acoustic skills with their becausejersey.com performance of “Perfect Sky,” which was featured as The Jersey Rock Video of the Week back in May. Mind Riot plans to start work on another new recording soon. Their self-titled album is available now. You can score a copy of it HERE. Learn more at mindriotband.com. Singer Mike Rainone will call in to Jersey Rock on Thursday night at 11:30 pm!
