Bio
Mario “SkyBlew” Farrow grew up in Alabama. Most of his neighborhoods were polluted with drugs, gangs, and violence. Surrounded by negativity and transitioning into various foster homes, he could have easily chosen the wrong path. Rather than succumbing to his environment and dire circumstances, Mario chose to rise above them and use music to soothe his soul and escape. He would freestyle and rhyme to himself, eventually penning his lyrics under the name, “Young Millionaire,” in 2004. In 2008 Mario relocated and acclimated to Chapel Hill, NC. During this transitional period, he delved deeply into his craft, linking up with local emcees and producers like ACee, Shoton, and KdotMills. Taking his lyricism to the next level, Mario decided to change his handle to “SkyBlew.” His music is proving to be unique with an uplifting, powerful, and positive message in Hip-Hop. SkyBlew uses his sincere, substantive lyrics & soulful sound to breathe life into a genre saturated with lies, darkness and gimmicks. Most say, SkyBlew is a breath of fresh air! He pushes the boundaries with his music and brings a new/unique flavor to the music world. In addition to his solo career, SkyBlew is also half of the dynamic duo known as Blaze the Sky, with fellow emcee, Azon Blaze.

Scott Erickson

Scott Erickson, a musician who calls Danville, Pennsylvania home, has been performing professionally for 25 years and can be seen regularly at venues in PA, NJ and DE. He also plays annually in Chicago, IL, and has performed as far West as California and Oregon. “Playing live music has always been my passion,” says Erickson. “and I love expanding my shows and scope & playing in new places.”

As a solo artist, he has opened for The Bacon Brothers (actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael), classic rock icons Blue Oyster Cult, and comedians such as the legendary Gilbert Gottfried. He has also performed with former Paul McCartney sidemen Robbie McIntosh and Hamish Stuart (who has also worked with Ringo Starr), country music superstar Keith Urban, and jammed with members of legendary rock ‘n’ roll band The Smithereens. Recently, he performed on a Monkees tribute album and also recorded a song with famed “Wings” drummer Steve Holley for Pop Garden Radio’s upcoming release, Commotion: A Tribute to John Fogerty and Creedance Clearwater Revival.

The late Pat DiNizio (Lead singer/songwriter of The Smithereens) once described Scott as, “…an enormously talented walking encyclopedia of pop music, with a reputation for excellence that can’t be glossed over.”

After all these years of performing, Erickson still loves what he does and is ready to play for as many new audiences in as many new areas around the country as possible. He freely and proudly admits, ’’Without my audience, I am nothing at all. I sincerely thank them, and I am eternally in their debt.”
