sky stahl smlRoslyn’s own is coming home to play. Sky Phoenix Stahl was born in Lake County, Northern California and grew up in Roslyn. His style is a combination of rock, blues, jazz, funk, and experimental. Since he can remember he has been fascinated with the guitar. He got his first electric guitar for his fifth birthday, and has been actively playing since. Having grown up with an abundant variety of music, it is his goal to combine as many styles and techniques that he can with the modern musical approaches of today.
Sky has played in a variety of bands, for many of which he composed the majority of the original music. In 6th grade, Sky was invited by the band director to join the high school jazz band and continued playing with them throughout middle and high school. Sky is twenty years old, entering his second year at the University of Washington in Seattle studying Communications and Business. He is working to collaborate with as many other young musicians, artists, and visionaries as he can in hopes of sparking a movement centered around multimedia art forms, positive vibes, and the quest for the best way to find happiness.
