Skyjumper started in late 2000, in downtown Toronto, Canada, with singer/guitarist Shane Macaulay, bassist/songwriter J.R. Russell, with Dave Grim on drums.
Over time, a mixed variety of musicians came on board, filling a fresh new flavor of rock and jazz fusion. The group released their much~anticipated self~titled album "The Skyjumpers" in 2002. The 8~song album sold very well at their live performances, as well as online.
2007 issued another album, aptly called "Chute The Breeze", which can be found at CDBABY.com. The 12 studio tracks were an undertaking spanning eighteen months, bringing a fresh feel to the music Skyjumper would slowly evolve toward.
Yet another evolution of Skyjumper took place a couple of years later, with the group trimming back to a power~trio. After a wave of concerts in Toronto and southern Ontario, Shane took some time off from playing, focusing on some personal issues.
After a hiatus, Horizon and J.R. Russell got back to work in the studio, this time joined by Chicago native and percussionist Mike G.
Bringing back some of the Skyjumper single hits, as well as fresh new material, the boys are back at it, and are nearly ready to hit the road again, for what should be another exciting round of music and energy.
