SkyanI started in 2012 when the girls were in high school together. Sky and Charlotte were seniors while Khalil was Junior at Morris Central School. They started playing music together in the hallway during lunch. Just having fun, playing some of their favorite songs by Modest Mouse, Warpaint, Allison Crauss and many more. As their friendship grew, so did their music. They eventually started writing songs together, and then started playing at open mice and other venues. These girls hit it off from the start, and continue to grow together.
