5SKS is two guys from Salt Lake City, Utah that like to get together and write and record music. John Kammerer and Mike Doran were in various bands in the 90's and went their separate ways. But in 2008, after not seeing each other for over a decade, they started working on new music. Since then they have written and recorded dozens of new songs to add to their existing discography of well over 100 songs. Trying to focus on organic melodies rather than traditional song structure, some have called their music "experimental pop" while others refer to it as "alternative/pop/rock". John sings and writes the lyrics and they both write the music. Mike and John both play a variety of instruments, with Mike playing the lead guitar parts. They record their music on an 8-track and use drum machines on most songs, with the exception of a few where Devin Affleck plays drums. This website is still very much a work in progress, and 5SKS thanks Orbsix Software for hosting this and to all our families and friends who have always supported what we do and why we do it.

Song should write themselves :-)
