Sky Orchid is an Alternative Indie band of two brothers, Gabriel and Daniel Traknyak based out of Houston, Texas. They play and write professional, timeless music that has been aired on 100+ college radio stations and can now be streamed anywhere! They mostly record themselves but have worked with award winning studios and producers like Edgewater Music Group out of Sugarland, Texas and Simpson’s Sound Lab out of Kansas City, Missouri which has produced four albums for Tech N9ne. Songs like, Apache, were recorded by Tambora Records, a studio in Bogota, Colombia nominated for the 2017 Latin Grammys!
Sky Orchid’s forte is… well their music. It’s beautiful, prominent, and poetic. The brothers are literally perfectionists when it comes to their recordings; however, they’re also experienced live performers! Sky Orchid has played over 90 shows within the U.S. and Abroad including three festivals and a personal invitation to play at the Bauhaus in Dessau-Roßlau, Germany. Furthermore, Sky Orchid placed twice as finalists in Kansas State University's battle of the bands competition organized by OPUS.
One thing that separates Sky Orchid from any independent band are their surreal music videos. Some of the incredible cinematographers they’ve worked with are: Joe Dooling with Beatwatch, Marius Klovning with Silver Camera Media LLC, and George Chuang with Vessele.
