You can't fully appreciate the long history of recorded music without taking the time to look at the breakups. Whether it's for good or for the season, Okey Dokey is the product of that natural reformation that occurs when musicians part ways. Fronted by visual artist Aaron Martin and The Weeks' guitarist Johny Fisher, these two former band mates made the rare decision to revisit creating music together in Fisher's small cabin about 20 miles outside of Nashville, TN. What they created was a well blended mix of everything they loved about classic Motown combined with a dash of their psychedelic storytelling roots. With the record and touring band including a revolving group of musicians from bands such as The Weeks, Rayland Baxter Band, Desert Noises, Morning Teleportation, Ron Gallo, Kansas Bible Company, Houndmouth and more, their upcoming debut album 'Love You, Mean It' has a little bit of treasure for every type of listener.
Brothers Jeff and Jon Lee sought emotional shelter in crafting songs during their teenage years in Rockville, MD. Jeff began playing the blues by learning the songs of his heroes Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, while Jon channeled his emotions through songwriting. The brothers' varied musical interests harmoniously create a sonic signature. While Jon's endearing songwriting reflects on his past, Jeff is a producer and multi-instrumentalist fascinated with drawing emotion out of song. Their unique strengths and differences fuse into the alluring pop/rock style of their self-produced EP, For My Dearest. The brothers' live lineup includes drummer Alan Slimak and bassist Zack Be. Skyline Hotel plays local venues around DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Jeff and Jon are currently recording their latest EP to be released in Spring 2015.
