Raised in Toronto and then Vancouver, Margit grew up listening to rock, folk and classical music. Her parents were huge music lovers. After moving to Kamloops in 1992, she built a successful career as a local musician and hasn’t looked back since her first gig at Sun Peaks Resort.
Rod started playing guitar at age 10 in Vancouver. He was playing in bands at age 16 and hasn’t stopped. Rod was a huge part of the indigenous band, Waskesu in the mid 1990’s. They had the pleasure of playing for the Prime Minister and playing at the Commonwealth Games in Victoria along with Susan Aglukark and Kashtin. They also had quite a few appearances on Much Music.
Rod’s First Nations name is Little Sky. The decision was made to combine names for the band. Put these two together and you have the Margit Sky Project.
With Margit’s vocals and rhythm guitar and Rod’s jaw dropping lead guitar they have become a very sought after duo in the BC Interior. They have been fortunate enough to open for Kevin Costner and Modern West, Burton Cummings, Barney Bentall, Elliot Brood and Ridley Bent.
Margit and Rod are very passionate about their music and have just released their first CD, It’s Been So Long.
Keep an eye on these two…they are an incredibly dynamic duo with a very bright future.
