Skies Speak became interested in computer-based music after his father downloaded cracked versions of Reason and Fruity Loops for him in high school.
In a small rural town in Louisiana with nothing more to do as a teen than perusing Wal Mart in the late hours of the night, these programs formed a foundation for what would become his first album. After years of putting away his hobby, the itch to create was nagging him to pick up where he left off. Having always been interested in electronic, ambient, and atmospheric music; he set out to develop his first EP in late 2014, completing it in the summer of 2016. Using sampled vocals and drums, brooding synths, and guitar, his debut album Testament explores past hurts, present circumstances, and hope for the future. With a second album now in the works; he has begun to develop music with more of an emphasis on the use of analog and modular synthesizers inspired by composers such as Jóhann Jóhannsson and the duo behind the soundtrack of Stranger Things, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein.
