About Skyterra

Skyterra, recently winners of Best New Artist at the 2017 San Diego Music Awards, is an uptempo piano based psychedelic dream rock band with both male and female singers that write songs about life and love.

Coming from San Diego, the band consists of Chetan, Melissa, Carlos and Jon. Even though two of them (Chetan and Melissa) have excelled as classical concert pianists, they all share a love for current and forward-thinking music. Their sound contains atmospheric synths and bass intertwined with acoustic piano, beautiful floating guitar leads, electronic and acoustic drums, and both male and female singers. Some of their influences include Coldplay, Radiohead, The XX, and Portishead.

Chetan and Melissa met in conservatory at the Cleveland Institute of Music while studying with the same piano teacher. During this time, Chetan, a Yamaha Artist, had a lot of success performing around the world and gaining top prizes in the most prestigious and rigorous piano competitions, soloing with orchestra, and performing in world class venues such as Carnegie Hall. Melissa pursued classical piano from an eclectic approach, garnering attention premiering new music internationally. Their paths nearly went down the route of a classical performance career, but their passion was in creating their own music.

Later, they met Jon as they were in a position to replace a drummer from their previous band. They auditioned quite a few drummers, but Jon stood out so clearly with his precision and creativity that Chetan declared “I will never let him go." Jon’s high musical training and quick instincts made him a great pairing to add to the mix as they all work methodically with precision and detail while caring deeply about the art and passion behind it all.

A year into their growth as a band, they were approached by guitarist, Carlos Morales and instantly fell in love with his unique guitar sound. It was literally the perfect missing piece to the band’s sound.

Skyterra's mission is to spread awareness, self-acceptance, and oneness through the power of music while challenging and influencing the notion that high art can excel in a popular medium. Their lyrics draw from personal experience and also address connectivity, including subjects of love and coming of age. While they aim to spin things in a positive, hopeful manner, they enjoy exploring the dark side as well.

Having launched in spring 2016 Skyterra released it’s Debut EP titled “Rise” on November 11th and is planning more releases later this year. They are quickly gaining popularity in San Diego and have played to full houses at the Music Box, Casbah, House of Blues and other popular local venues as well as hosted special private shows at their house. Their show features the virtuosic talent of the performers as well as their depth of emotion.
