From a file on a computer sitting in New Delhi, to a full-fledged touring band with members from around the world formed over the internet – Skyharbor have defied convention every step of the way. The debut album 'Blinding White Noise' was released worldwide in 2012 to critical acclaim, and earned the band a dedicated fan following across the globe. Since then, Skyharbor have been performing regularly around the world and making waves with their distinctive brand of sweeping, ethereal prog-rock, fronted by Daniel Tompkins' powerful and emotional storytelling vocal style. Having played at some of the biggest festival stages in the world barely 20 shows into their career, Skyharbor continue to grow rapidly as a group and musical entity as they prepare to launch their second album 'Guiding Lights' in November 2014.
Curtis and Johnny opted to go in a new direction and started a new band called Lips of Velvet, bringing in Curtis's brother Kary as the drummer. Kary's drum skills brought a whole new sound to the band opening up a lot of new ideas. Curtis loves being the front man and he gives the audience the performance any good lead singer should. With Curtis picking up the lead vocal role, the bass duties went to Johnny, as well as the background vocals.
Curtis, Johnny, and Kary were eager to have their good friend Colton Bishop join the band and eventually Colton joined them as the lead guitarist and provided additional back ground vocals. Colton is a extremely skilled guitar player who builds his own guitars in his spare time, and plays the same guitars on stage.
With Colton on board, the line up was complete and VAGRANT was formed. They are a close knit band with heart felt dedication to each other and the band. Even though Curtis and Kary are brothers by birth, the four of them are true brothers at heart.
As of February 2012 the band added Brandon Wall as their rhythm guitarist. Brandon is a long time friend that not only was a big fan of the band, but was a great supporter as well. Brandons guitar skills have brought a new fuller sound to the band, which in turn also allows Colton more time to play some lead riffs in the songs. Brandon has been a part of the DFW music scene for quite somitetime, and fits in with the bands attitude and personality perfectly.
After a 2 year hiatus to deal with personal issues, the band decided it was time to evolve into a heavier more modern sound. They decided to put their old school rock sound aside to pursue a heavier genre leaving behind the name Vagrant and the old songs. Reinventing themselves as The Drop Deadlys
The band is just as close knit now as they ever were. If you have not been able to make it out to see the show you are in for a full set of awesome original metal.
Come join the ever growing crowd of Dead Beats!
