Bio

Skyepaint is the solo synthpop/electronic project of Newcastle-based songwriter and producer Amos Wellings. The project was envisioned as a modern take on synthpop music, drawing inspiration from artists such as Depeche Mode, The Postal Service, Purity Ring and Jamie xx.

Skyepaint's debut single “Maybe It’s My Fault” was released in October 2017 and quickly garnered support from music blogs such as Purple Sneakers, Electronic North, Newcastle Mirage, Arc Street Journal and more. His live show was debuted in December 2017, supporting Sydney duo MEZKO on the Newcastle date of their EP launch tour.

Skyepaint comes recommended by Newcastle Mayor Spencer Scott, and also Crown Prince Of Newcastle Joab Eastly. Who am I to challenge the oligarchy? pop sheen + compelling darkness.

Definitely reminiscent of CHVRCHES, I could listen to a whole album like this. I can't wait to hear more of your songs!
