Kiss the Sky


Kiss the Sky is a modern blues train, steaming into new sonic territory.
Jean-Paul Bourelly guitarist and free range blues sorcerer, born in Chicago, has always strived toward fresh musical experiences. This cd is characterized by strong guitar cross rhythms with a healthy dose of pimped up re-sampled esoteria against a groovy drum and bass. If one is hungering for a fresh experience then the tracks are varied and compelling.

On this set of tracks Bourelly connect blues with funk, hypnotic, and outer body digital elements melted down into the body of a fresh jazz-like impulse. The group is augmented by the emerging voice of Isabelle Rivera Dimbuki. Make no mistake this is the tradition of change and a quest for sonic and rhythmic uncharted territory. Its a sound that asks questions and reflects the ever migrating soul, soul that is necessary for thoughtful music.

The music is all further elevated by the bands world view.

The band started out doing cover songs but over 7 years the Berlin based musicians have evolved a unique sound that was buried deep in those cover songs.


"If music is to serve the people then we are artists putting down our creation for you, to suggest new ways, to stimulate thought and feeling."

Bourelly is joined on the album by the other members of Kiss the Sky. A first class line up of authentic soul players are here.
Kenny Martin previously appearing on JPgotMangos with Sadiq Bey and Citizen X and a musician who has played and recorded with countless funk groups in his career including Defunkt brings a thick drum beat with a sense of adventure.

Darryl Taylor is bassist from Houston Texas, living in Berlin, who worked with many greats in soul music including Archie Bell and the Drells and James Brown's legendary drummer Jab'o Starks. His work here is stable and sure handed, just what you would ask for accompanying JPB’s fire power.
