The Skyla Burrell Band is a full time, hardworking traveling blues band, known for their high-energy electric blues.
Skyla Burrell was born in Los Angeles and raised in Orange County, California. Skyla formed her first band at the age of 13 and has been a working musician ever since. Skyla played with several bands as a teenager and young adult, working her way up and down Southern California. She relocated to the East Coast in her early 20's where she continued learning and growing from her musical experiences and eventually co-forming the Skyla Burrell Band. In addition to her singing, writing and guitar duties, Skyla also plays the piano.
Onstage and on record, they play 100%

They're currently touring in support of their 2023 CD, "Broken 45s."
"On stage, she's equal parts siren, blues goddess and ring mistress"
THE DAILY TIMES
"The Skyla Burrell Band is tight. They don’t just lay it down; they knock it down and kick it. It’s blues, it’s rock, it’s swinging good time Saturday night fist fight low down hoe down get down and boogie music. They fill the songs with hot licks, sweet tones, impassioned vocals, and undeniable spirit."
"Skyla Burrell and Mark Tomlinson's set for Lil' Ed was the most incendiary and pulse pounding opening sets I've ever heard."
