"Without warning, Eyezon Soweto jumped on stage during Sky Country’s set at the Nacarubi Festival in Big Sur the summer of 2010. To listeners it felt as if he was pushed onto the stage by some divine entity: His voice added delicious soul-music texture to Sky Country’s tight blend of funk, experimental jazz and psych rock from Nico Georis (keys), Shaun Elley (drums), Matt Baldwin (guitar), Peter Arensdorf (bass) and Robin Macmillan and Brett Eastman (percussion). It was the band’s first introduction to the South African hip-hop artist EYEZON.
It was also the beginning of something special."(Monterey Weekly)
