Skyway Man is the intricate, ufology-informed, delectably hazy folk futurism project of lauded musician James Wallace (of Nashville’s James Wallace & the Naked Light.) In 2017, Wallace released the sprawling Skyway Man double LP Seen Comin’ From a Mighty Eye (Yewknee Records), a project whose conceptual nature is difficult to articulate but a lot of fun to listen to.

WOUB’s Emily Votaw spoke to Wallace about a duo of beautiful Skyway Man music videos, his hopes for performing at the 2019 Nelsonville Music Festival, and, much to Votaw’s delight and surprise, the region’s most celebrated enigma, Mothman.

he Nelsonville Music Festival takes place on Robbins Crossing in Nelsonville June 6-9. Tickets are available now at
