SkyBabyRecords is music artist Paul Terry's independent label. It was created so he could write, record and release his own music, both as a composer and a songwriter.
In 1999, the dual task of composing his first film score (for a short called SOLD), while performing live as a singer-songwriter, provided the spark for SkyBabyRecords.
SOLD's soundtrack was composed to intentionally sound like several different artists had contributed to it. Ghostly, piano-led cues sat alongside industrial rock, late-night blues, and aggressive metal. It was a sketch of what Paul wanted to do: write and produce music for a wide range of soundtracks and projects, rather than focus on one style or genre. And always remain, one-hundred percent, an independent artist. Inspired by his musical heroes that created indy labels, Paul did exactly that. Since then, SkyBabyRecords has released more than thirty albums.
Paul's eclectic records to date include: his award-nominated solo moniker, CELLARSCAPE (six albums and eleven singles); the soundtrack to the 13-time award-winning feature documentary SIDNEY & FRIENDS (which Paul also executive produced); the score for SYFY's podcast documentary series BEHIND THE PANEL; and the score and sound design for the award-winning horror film CARE.
Paul's musical collaborations include: a duet with award-winning Dutch artist Anneke van Giersbergen (on the Cellarscape song “The Same Place”); Kenyan vocalist Silas Miami, South Africa-based artist Lana Crowster, cellist Tom Wraith, Danish singer-songwriter Martha Meganie (on her song “Mistaken”, produced by Flemming Rasmussen for Philyra Records); and British artist Emily Ewing (on her song “Two”, via her own label).
The rest of 2020 is business as usual, with SkyBabyRecords releasing yet more eclectic scores and songs.
