Tracks 1. Fiction Man (3:52)

Fiction Man is the ‘classic rock’ third single by multinational band Perfect Blue Sky. The single is released on friday 9th March and taken from the album The Eye of Tilos, which debuted on the 19th May 2017. Fiction Man relates to “anxiety and the struggles to keep one’s perspective; how it can mislead human reality. We must try to remember it’s not who we are, it’s what happens,”  hence PBS decided to release an official lyrical video at https://youtu.be/VT5tFqrSt5Y

The live version video also performed by the duo of ‘Fiction Man’ was filmed recently at The Preservation Room in London UK by videographer John Kye. Watch at https://youtu.be/CvGLo0tfSMk

Perfect Blue Sky are the ‘Hippie-delic’ duo of Swedish guitarist/vocalist Pna Andersson and Australian vocalist Jane Kitto. With their organic artistic vision, uplifting songwriting and mesmerising live shows, they champion a songbook laced with passion and integrity. Their music invokes a timeless journey that weaves poetry, melody and compassion into a blend of 60’s/70’s rooted music.

Background: Andersson and Kitto formed Perfect Blue Sky in 2014, drawing together a wealth of well-known guest musicians who share a love of classic rock. The album features Jerry Donahue (guitarist for The Proclaimers and Fairport Convention) and Dave Getz (Big Brother and the Holding Company drummer). Also in the line-up is Frenchman Frank Bessard (Joe Satriani, Stanley Clarke) on drums, Australian keyboardist Danny Oakhill, and British viola player Lewis Parsons.

Andersson is co-founder of leading Swedish metal band Netherbird, who have released 8 studios albums to date. As well as song writing and performing, he is a highly ranked sound engineer who has worked on productions featuring Ed Sheeran, Martha Wainwright, I Blame Coco, Icona Pop, Salif Keita, Fu Manchu, Charlie XCX, and Sonic Youth.

Australian rock artist Kitto has performed in over 34 countries, including Belarus, Tahiti, and at the North Pole! She was first signed to Mushroom Records (Kylie Minogue), and features in Australia’s Who’s Who of Rock & Roll. Whilst playing in Sydney in 1994, she was discovered by Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter of Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers, who encouraged her to move to LA. There she supported Sheryl Crow at The Roxy, and performed at the Whisky a Go Go with Teddy Andreadis (Slash’s Snakepit) and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers). She has also appeared at the infamous CBGB in New York.

In 2006 Kitto toured the UK and Scandinavia as lead vocalist for Janis Joplin’s original band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Now based in Sweden, she has shared the stage with Dionne Warwick and Status Quo, and performed on live TV from the Prince’s Palace of Monaco.

Together Andersson and Kitto have supported Pete Doherty and Tony Joe White. Their influences include Led Zeppelin, Wishbone Ash and Pink Floyd, and their sound and partnership has been likened to a current day Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks!

Perfect Blue Sky have so far completed two UK live radio tours in 2017 including BBC and several commercial stations. They are scheduled for live dates throughout the UK this summer 2018.

Perfect Blue Sky is a highly anticipated collaboration between Swedish folk/metal artist, Pontus (Pna) Andersson, and Australian rock singer and guitarist, Jane Kitto. With the uninhibited vibes of 60s/70s psychedelic classic rock, the album is filled with imagination and spirit.

The album features Jerry Donahue (guitarist for The Proclaimers and Fairport Convention) and Dave Getz (Big Brother And The Holding Company drummer).
