KISS THE SKY was formed by world renown guitarist and experimental bluesman Jean-Paul Bourelly.
KISS THE SKY successfully intersects blues with new sonic possibilities. Working this brave new world, KTS creates an x-blues with an exciting unpredictable edge that cuts deep between blazing guitars, vocal hollers and pumping polyrhythmic thrust.
The group was formed in Berlin, as KTS naturally embodies ideas that reflect their unique experiences of working and living in the Diaspora.
"We are constantly coming up with new ways in this capital city Berlin to express our own direction through re-contextualizing motifs and re-defining styles. For us, music is the constant discovery of transformations." (JPB).
The songs unravel into a fresh blues space. "Music is for the people. We are artists, we are here to serve the people of the planet and suggest something different that at the same time is connected to our history" (JPB).
