Skybound Blue is harmony-driven, dig-deep-and-tell-the-story-in-your-bones Americana. Fronted by married duo Matt and Jenny Behnke, Skybound Blue is magic on stage - entertaining, funny, and down to earth. Their songwriting and musicianship hold their own in the vein of Americana greats like Shovels and Rope, Brandi Carlile, and Patty Griffin.
Whether playing an intimate theater or summer festival, they engage audiences with sincerity and charisma. Matt's guitar playing is legendary and their stunning harmonies and melodies seem familiar and welcome the minute you hear them. Skybound Blue’s music has been hand selected for Portland’s KINK Homegrown Music compilation and national ad campaigns for Woolrich Outdoor Clothing Company and Sunday Afternoon Hat Company. They’ve also been recognized as writers to watch by the Nashville Songwriter’s Association. Most importantly, Skybound Blue has created a devoted following of fans who crave a heartfelt performance filled with good laughs, inspiring moments, and unbridled foot stomping.

"Skybound Blue absolutely mesmerized the audience with their amazing artistry, charisma and polished stage presence. Matt and Jenny's beautiful harmonies and heartfelt stories left the audience begging for an encore...in fact two encores! This band has paid careful attention to every facet of their performance from the moment they arrived to load in their gear to the last musical note. I definitely intend to work with Skybound Blue in the future and highly recommend them to other buyers!"
