Project Skyward

Real Name:
Alexander Ryan Field
New York-based Electronica/Dreampop/Space Rock music project. In January 2002 the first official Project Skyward EP "Breakthroughs" was released. It received sustained airplay for several months on college and public radio shows across the US and Canada and reached number 15 on the collage charts. The following September the single "Distant Blue" was released on Nebula records. It debuted on the radio show Hindsight KYMC St. Louis, and remained on their play list consistently for over eight months. "Distant Blue" reached numbers 12 and 20 on college radio charts. It was listed at number 165 on the Earshot charts for most played albums on college radio in 2003. The single carried the project's first remix "Shine (Interstellar Mix)", showing a more club oriented side to their sound. At the close of 2003 "Distant Blue" and "Shine" were featured on the Supple Records compilation, "Ambient Volume Two".

At the close of 2004, after dealing with some label set-backs, Project Skyward released their first full-length entitled "Strange Synchronicities". The LP flows smoothly and seamlessly from beginning to end, carrying the listener into deep cosmic imagery that is both thought provoking and emotional. The songs are abstract yet do not alienate the listener, vocal melodies and guitar lines get stuck in your head leaving lasting impressions. "Strange Synchronicities" was co-produced and mastered by Joerg Koehler of Malory. Weeks after its release it climbed to number 2 on college charts in both the US and Canada.

It's gained the attention of club DJs and offers great remix potential for the electronic dance genre. "Strange Synchronicities" is Project Skyward's most original work yet, displaying their intentions to create a sound which stands outside of classification, and which conjures a unique experience. Project Skyward released a second studio LP, "Moved by Opposing Forces", in 2007.
