1) Website: Grey Skies
A perfect complement to their melancholy namesake, the Grey Skies’ complex and unpredictable debut album pushes hard rock, pop and experimental rock in new directions. From the moody, driving lead track, “Bend In The Wire,” to the layered psychedelic swirl in “More Orange Than Tan,” the Grey Skies have crafted a nuanced, mysterious album that will appeal to indie and hard rock fans alike.
Never content to stay in one genre, songwriter Bryan Knisley (Push on Junior, Moon Maan) takes rock guitar out of its native habitat and into previously unknown places. Mark Pakulski (Signal & Report, Moon Maan) has a similarly adventurous rock pedigree, including stints in punk, avant-garde goth, retro pop and classic rock bands. Multi-instrumentalist/avocado player Stephanie Huss (Reba Fritz Band) is the band’s secret weapon, while Jamie Bollman’s (Luke’s Angels) unexpected, off-kilter fills and no-BS approach give the band its unique driving power.
2) from wikipedia: “Devin Townsend was born in New Westminster, British Columbia, on May 5, 1972. Townsend picked up the banjo when he was five, and began playing guitar when he was 12. He participated in several metal bands while he was in high school, and founded Grey Skies at the age of 19. Around the same time he joined a popular local group called Caustic Thought, replacing Jed Simon on guitar and playing alongside bassist Byron Stroud, both of whom would later become members of Townsend’s flagship band, Strapping Young Lad. In 1993, Townsend began writing material under the name Noisescapes, a project he later described as “just as violent as Strapping Young Lad” “
