Shiva Skydriver was formed by vocalist/bassist Kelsey James and guitarist Ed Skero around their mutual love of music and pop culture of the 1970s. Their 2015 self-titled debut reflects those influences from the arena rock of bands like Queen and Led Zeppelin to the soundtracks of musicals like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Tommy. The songs filter those influences through a mostly hard rock sound, while pointing toward something new. Their December 2018 follow-up builds on that creative foundation, while letting the songs expand in both length and dimension, with the addition of strings and guitar synthesizers.
The band has played over 1,000 shows together since forming in 2008. Their live show has taken them from coast to coast across the US and to Europe for the first time in 2018. A return trip is scheduled for the spring of this year, as well as new music, and evolving live performances.
