Orange Sky celebrates 20 years with new EP & sizzling “Summertime” single
2016 marks the 20th year of the musical journey for Trinidad and Tobago’s island-Rock impresarios Orange Sky.
With 7 full length albums, 3 international recording contracts, 4 major tours, 17 radio hits and over 700 live shows already under its belt, the band commemorates its landmark 2 decade anniversary with the upcoming release of a new album “Sugar” and Summer holiday anthem “Summertime”.
What began as a childhood dream for brothers Nigel and Nicholas Rojas turned into the opportunity of a lifetime for a group of Trinbago ‘island boys’ to embark upon an adventure of travelling the globe to perform and share their original music and unique Southern Caribbean vibe.
In its fulfilling and humbling 20 year journey, Orange Sky, whose influences range from Rock greats Motley Crue and AC/DC to Caribbean music icons Bob Marley, Jacob Miller and Andre Tanker has managed to gain and cultivate a loyal fan base around the world due to its signature Reggae-Rock style. The Caribbean Rock-fusion ensemble has toured extensively around the region, has performed multiple times in every US state with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii and has shared the stage with notable such as Evanescence, Kings X, Kansas, Skid Row, Damien Marley, Steel Pulse, Maxi Priest and Beres Hammond.
The band’s new track “Summertime” is written by Nigel Rojas and Dante Pantin and is already being labelled as a July/August anthem by some music fans and industry insiders due to its ‘feel-good‘ nature, upbeat rhythm, infectious melody and catchy lyrics.
This latest musical offering is the lead single off the band’s new EP entitled “Sugar” which was produced by Pantin who also serves as the band’s keyboardist and musical director.
Sugar is considered by Orange Sky to be its best production thus far and features a rootsy, melodic, Pop sound with tracks to satisfy all musical palates.
These members view the band’s journey as more of a lifestyle and are presently hard at work in between live shows preparing for the release of the new EP as well as promoting ‘Summertime’ and its soon to be shot accompanying music video.
Possessing an original sound that has influenced the evolution of an entire Caribbean Rock movement and armed with new material, panoramic productions, electrifying performances and an uncanny ability to overcome all obstacles, Orange Sky is poised ride its 20th year in fine style.
