The album was performed by talented musicians, such as, Salvatore Romano (Drums) Ryan Glennan (Percussion) Lauren Grimaldi (Percussion) Aaron Stern (Bass) Connor Hill (Guitar). [bio]
“Skyline Hotel infuses pop/rock with the guitar driven sounds of the ‘70s and sensitive, emotion-laden feel of the ‘90s. Born and raised in Rockville, MD, brothers Jeff and Jon Lee sought shelter in crafting songs during their teenage years. Jon’s endearing songwriting reflects on his past while Jeff is a producer and multi-instrumentalist fascinated with drawing emotion out of song. Their unique strengths and differences culminate into the alluring pop/rock style of their new self-produced EP, Sparks of Light.” [bio]
