Blind The Sky is a band with the mentality of “why not.” Why can’t a rock band write long dynamic songs without droning on the same riff for 15 minutes? Why can’t a rock band play what the music dictates instead of what is conventional? Most Commercial music on the radio today is like fast food. Its convenience is the only thing that makes it appealing. What you pay for is grease, a spare tire on your waist line, and its way too easy to swallow. The band has always found its strength going against the common grain. Blind The Sky is a band like many others reincarnated from the ashes of previous bands. The band started out in early 2007, thru many transitions, Dave Kelly and Daniel Holderer remained the key members of the group. In 2010 bassist Mike Hollander joined the band completing the lineup. In early 2012 drummer Daniel Holderer left wanting the band to move forward even with his absence. The band had just started working in their studio recording the next full length record entitled "Humanity". In the true spirit of carrying on Dave and Mike continued on as a two piece playing many shows in the last few years while working on new material. During this time they were auditioning
drummers to find the right third piece of the puzzle. With Daniel Holderer gone finding a drummer that could pull this off would be a challenge but after some time the band recently added Daniel Cole to the current lineup. Exited to carry on as a newly reunited band they have began playing, recording, and finishing what the band started.
Dave has been playing guitar and singing most of his life in various different bands. Dave is the lead vocalist, guitar/synth player and is a major writing force in the group. At the formation of Blind The Sky Dave started becoming influenced by electronic sounds blended with rock. This led to his discovery of guitar synth which added a new dimension to the band’s sound.
Mike like Dave, has been playing guitar and bass in various different bands most of his life. A lover of music, Mike has come to the theory that there is always great music out there in many genres. You just have to look for it. Mike plays bass/synth, sings backing vocals and adds a Zen-like approach to the music.
Daniel has just recently joined Blind The Sky but has been playing drums for many years. He has an openness to many genres and a love for 80's and 90's rock as well as progressive music. With this background he adds the progressive edge to the sound the band has been looking for.
Blind The Sky is a band that’s passion for music knows no boundaries. They create music that includes many different genres and moods blended into one unique style. Their sound is one.
