Sky Hi returns with this super heavy 7” EP and it is hard as hell! The band continues to evolve their modern soul sound under defacto band leader/organist Josh Cochran and the results are mighty pleasing.
DeRobert “Dee” Adams’ vocal performance shines brightly on this EP filled with the signature “Big Horn” Sky Hi sound, bumpin’ beats and diabolical keyboard lines. From the off kilter swing of the title track “Reality Check” to the old school Sunday soul feel of “Plan B”, Sky Hi comes correct on this latest offering on G.E.D. Soul Records. Don’t sleep on this slice of raw southern soulful goodness!

Attn: G.E.D. Soul Records Release 45 Title: GED007 Sky Hi - "Junkyard Dog" - w/ B side "Voltron's Dance Party"
The members of nine-piece Nashville based modern funk and soul greats, Sky Hi, and G.E.D. Soul Records have been busy writing, recording, and spreading the Southern Soul Love from coast to coast. We're proud to announce a new G.E.D. Soul Records digital 45 release from Sky Hi , and we know you are gonna dig it!
Side A, "Junkyard Dog" is a quick stepping soul cut with a rock solid groove and soaring horns. If you've ever been put down by some jive suckers and had your dreams put on the shelf, then you've felt like that poor ole dog yourself. Let DeRobert's vocals move you on over that hump, and then let some tasty Hammond organ and tenor sax solos take you even higher!
Side B, "Voltron's Dance Party" is a party-favorite, an instrumental piece of dirty, funky swagger. Featuring the Sky Hi horns and rhythm section, "Voltron's Dance Party" is a non-stop groover filled with thick horn lines, sticky clavinet, floating guitar lines, and a deep bass and drum pocket. Mark Spain's sultry sax solo smooths out the mid-section and Josh Cochran's hyper Hammond takes it on down the road, but the dance party is never over!
(We're hoping the physical 45's will be out mid February!)
We've decided to byte the bullet (heh) and sign up for yet another social/music/interweb site. RN seems to have a great set of tools and we're looking forward to using them to promote the funk.
Stay tuned for more info!
