Deep Sky divers is a two man team comprised of Jon Short and David Jones formed in 2000 when they released their music on mp3.com. Their musical compositions were originally a form of therapeutic escapism (in the early 1990's) due to hectic working schedules and home lives and intended for use in film and TV scores (which never came to fruition). They have been making music on and off since then, both having other full time jobs, but taking time out to create their highly acclaimed new music.
Their ambient/new age sound is well summed up in this quote off of their website: http://www.deepskydivers.com/
"Jon and David compose and record music that is hard to categorize. It blends the melodicism of adult contemporary music and classic new age with some of the breeziness of non-urban smooth jazz and the electronic keyboards of ambient and EM. There is meticulous attention to musical atmosphere, faultless engineering, composing in a variety of tones and textures, using ultra-high quality keyboards, and all of it wedded to an accessibility that somehow walks the fine line between being both commercial and heartfelt. This makes the music almost virtually unclassifiable in usual terms, which (if I can be so bold as to say this) is probably just what Short and Jones prefer."
