ABOUT

Founded in 2003, Skyline is one of the most renowned fusion Jazz bands in Taiwan. Its music covers genres like Jazz, funk, Latin, R&B, soul, pop and rock. Embracing influences from Jazz masters in U.S., Japan and Europe, the band is committed to creating their original music by combining western elements with local cultures for an unique fusion style. 

As the name indicates, Skyline’s music boasts a distinctive metropolitan style and strong urban focus. 

In 2013, Skyline launched "Alchemy”, its 10th Anniversary round-the-island Tour, and received wide acclaim from music fans. Thus we decided to kick off our debut album“City Glide” in June, 2014.Since the album launched, Skyline has received wide acclaim from home and abroad for its diverse music elements and mature urban Jazz style. In addition to being nominated for the Best New Artist at the 5th Golden Indie Music Awards in 2014, the band was among the world’s top 12 bands at the 3rd Cotai Jazz and Blues Festival in Macau in the same year and then invited to perform live at the 2015 Java Jazz Festival, the world’s biggest Jazz music festival. Following its debut success, Skyline launched its second album “City Colors” in 2016. Extending the concept of “silouette of the city”, Skyline seeks to inject greater musical richness and cultural depth into the production to create some truly unique Fusion Jazz tunes.  Meanwhile, we seek to go beyond our music boundary and produce pieces catering to an  international audience.


Skyline is also devoted to promoting Jazz music from Taiwan via innovative online platforms. On the strength of the power of the Internet as well as the group forming power of social media, we have more than 15,000 fans on Facebook, becoming the most followed Jazz band in Taiwan. We also have a multinational fan base on YouTube and Google+, receiving greetings and questions from people worldwide. At Skyline, our ambition is not only to promote Taiwan’s Jazz music among international music lovers but make Taiwan known to the world.
