Skymonk is an gritty alternative rock band out of Columbia, SC formed by Kelly Nash (Guitars, Vocals), Scott Roberts (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Jared Cooper (Lead Guitar), Ben Evans (Drums) in late 2012. Skymonk has developed an infectious sound with driving rhythm that resonates with any crowd. The group’s maturity as performers has been road tested with many Columbia shows, several successful local/regional radio appearances (WUSC, The Palm, WXRY), and a 25 night fall tour spanning 3 states
Skymonk draws influences from many places but the band revolves around grooving rock and alternative music. Taking elements of groups such as Band of Skulls, Kings of Leon, and The White Stripes, Skymonk compiles energetic, melodic rock, syncopated rhythms, and soaring melodies in a way that moves and connects them with the audience.
