The Skye Bleu Crew: Doll House
(Independent / Release: 11 March 2022)
If "keep it simple" had a musical expression, it would likely sound something like Doll House from Bloomingdale, Illinois's The Skye Bleu Crew.
The song was written for vocalist Jen Botka by Keith Fallico (any relation to basist Dominic?). The song blends elements of country rock and Americana, given shape by Botka's polished vocals, from clear highs to a growly lower register. Layers of guitar and percussion weave in and out of the melody underneath lyrics about a love gone right.
It's under 3 minutes, but feels just right.
Personnel: Jen Botka: Vocal, Jason Botka: Guitar and Organ, Johnny Gadeikis: Bass, Dominic Fallico: Drums
