Skyflight Productions presents an evening with The Lovers on Thursday July 30, 2020 at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. The Lovers duo featues Amanda June and Cole Vosbury, two singer-songwriters who met in Nashville back in 2014 shortly after Cole’s Top 4 appearance on NBC’s The Voice Season 5. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Amanda’s love for music and passion for singing brought her to Nashville to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter & to develop herself as an artist when she was only 18. Cole, a Louisiana native, went on to lay roots in Nashville as well after his time on The Voice. Cole has been playing music and producing since he can remember. He is a master of his craft and plays multiple instruments including piano, drums and guitar. His style stands out with a soulful, intriguing gravelly voice that compliments his blues, rock, pop influence on guitar. In 2016 The Lovers was officially created & you could say it was in the cards. After the two had been touring around the states and cowriting with each other, they realized there was an effortless magic happening on and off stage. They have an undeniable sound and unforgettable look. Together they are seamless, each artist's voice complementing the other's wonderfully. The Lovers tour most of the year as full time independent artists and are working on their first EP to be released soon.





Tyler Sjöström will be special guest opening for The Lovers on Thursday July 30, 2020! Tyler Sjöström’s gritty vocals and vintage arrangements have reverberated from the Chicago music scene since the release of his freshman EP, What We Say We Are, at the end of 2014. Following his debut, rooted in Americana and Folk, Tyler’s track “Red River” was given EDM treatment with collaborator, Chris Meid, and signed as a single with Warner Music. Following was a slew of collaborations from across the globe resulting in tens of millions of streams on Spotify alone. Since, Sjöström has taken his new role as Singer-Songwriter to heart, working with DJs and producers around the world developing a taste and adeptness for topline writing, studio work, and live performance.

As a multi-instrumentalist and avid songwriter, Tyler finds his niche in spanning the genres, and in terms of music he is keen on distinguishing himself as a “jack of all trades”. Equipped with an honest and thunderous voice his live performance has been described as “bone rattling”. He’s shared the stage with Judah and The Lion, Joseph, The Mighty Oaks, The Secret Sisters, Corey Kilgannon–to name a few.

With studio work nearly done for a new album and several collaborative tracks in the works, 2020 is looking very good for Tyler Sjöström.

Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Sofia Talvik on Friday August 21, 2020 at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy. A veteran performer with 7 full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her.
Growing up in Sweden her music has always had a special tint of her Scandinavian heritage, making her a favorite among music lovers, but her 16 month, and 37 state long tour, through the USA (in an RV) has moved her music closer to the Americana tradition. The adventure on the road spurred a lot of emotions, both those of triumph and joy, but also those of self doubt and defeat – all of which found their way into the songs of her 2015 album ”Big Sky Country”.

Living like a musical nomad, moving from place to place, slowly but steadily building her audience through her heartfelt and personal performances she got to experience the USA in a way few people do. The people she met opened their homes and hearts to her and some of them even made it into her songs. But the new album is not a diary from her tour, it’s more of a storybook of emotions, new and old in which everyone can find their own place.

Sofia’s debut album Blue Moon was released in 2005 to much critical acclaim followed by Street of Dreams in 2007 which features a duet with indie pop icon Bernard Butler from British band Suede, released on her then newly formed record label Makaki Music. Continuing a steady pace of releasing albums Sofia released her album Jonestown, named after the tragic 1978 event in Jonestown, Gyuana, 2008, and was the first Swedish female artist to play the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, that same year.

“It’s not often that an album takes your breath away, and I hate to sound hyperbolic, but “Florida” actually has several “Oh my God!” moments of sheer beauty.” – CD Baby

about Sofia Talvik’s 2010 release Florida, and album inspired by spending a few hot summer months in Florida in 2009.

Sofia who toured the US several times from her first success at the Lollapalooza festival in 2008 has been invited to officially showcase at SxSW 3 years as well as to The Folk Alliance International Conference in 2012, completed a 16 month long tour of the US promoting her 5th release The Owls Are Not What They Seem. The tour took her through 37 states and she did over 250 concerts. She’s been noted in media all over the the world for her impeccable live performances and captivating stage presence. In October 2013 she released her album Drivin’ & Dreaming LIVE an album with live recordings from her U.S tour.

In March 2014 Sofia Talvik released the EP “FOLK” – a six track special. A hauntingly beautiful EP of old Swedish folk songs in a new modern presentation.

“Folk is as short as it is blissful. It gracefully bows to tradition. Sofia Talvik captivates the listeners with the soul and emotions of these folk songs. The Swede is one of those singer-songwriters who turns everything she touches into gold.” – Lie In The Sound

April 2015 Sofia’s 6th studio album “Big Sky Country” was released. A storybook of adventures and hardships, about sometimes doubting yourself but also finding strength within yourself. 10 original songs written on the road as well as in the contemplation after, beautifully packaged in a simple yet powerful production. “Big Sky Country” also contains a cover of “Starwalker” by Buffy Sainte-Marie. The album is being distributed in the USA and Canada by ILS/Caroline/Universal. The album was appointed 4th best americana album of the year by U.K newspaper The Telepgraph.

After having continued her tradition of releasing an original Christmas song, every year for over 10 years, Sofia released her Christmas album “When Winter Comes” in 2017. The album reached no 5 on Folk Radio Charts in the USA, and Sofia was the 3rd most played folk artist of the month of December.

The new album “Paws of a Bear” is in the works and is planned to be released 2019.

Skyflight Productions presents an evening with The Rough & Tumble on Friday September 25, 2020 at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep-- and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler, have been hobbling around the country in their 16’ camper since 2015. They picked up a couple of actual strays along the way-- two 100lb dogs, Puddle & Magpie Mae-- and have been making themselves at home in living rooms, bars, theaters, and festivals across the country.

Even at their start in 2011, The Rough & Tumble are collectors. Trinkets, instruments, stories shoved in cupholders, and scraps of paper sticking out of old books they never planned to read, the duo couldn’t resist filling their pockets with tiny things that may be useful down the road. Until they hit the road. Limited in space, The Rough & Tumble are a new kind of collector: songwriting with illustration, and arranging each song with a menagerie of instruments, ranging from acoustic guitars to mailbox snares to a banjulele. "Their Americana music is restorative, their performance highly entertaining, their orchestra of unusual instruments intriguing, and… jokes and stories are worthy of an HBO special." (Linda Bolton, Cozy Cabin House Concerts).

The stray folkies are as industrious as they are scrappy, releasing five EPs and two albums in their 8 years. The Rough & Tumble’s 2018 release We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know, brought the listener to the road and the road to their home, an album “as cozy, comfortable and inviting as a well-worn couch.” (Bill Kopp, Mountain Xpress). This is in addition to their weekly livecast, a monthly blog, a Cook & Color Book, a food blog, 2018 SERFA Official Showcase Artist, and playing upwards of 150 shows a year.
Written during a time of doggedly trying despite the odds and a self-proclaimed “year of honesty,” The Rough & Tumble released their new studio album Howling Back at the Wounded Dog on September 6, 2019.
