Biography

Originating from Montreal, Canada, October Sky has been playing music together for over a decade. What started as three teenagers with a passion for music developed into a threesome with a common desire to excel in the studio and on stage. The Canadian trio consists of Karl Raymond (vocals & guitars), Alex Racine (drums) and Yanik Rouleau (keyboards). Their musical output includes four albums (2 EP and 2 LP), three music videos, several international tours, and a host of sold-out live performances.

Back in September 2008, October Sky released their first full-length album “Hell Isn’t My Home,” which garnered them instant success. The album features 10 tracks which alternate between melodic rock and ambient alternative. The LP earned them three awards for best provincial rock song, rock CD, and rock music video. Two music videos soon followed, one of which was in rotation on MUCH Loud and in the Top 5 on Musique Plus. During this time, the band also performed live on national TV for CTV’s Telethon of Stars and was interviewed on Musique Plus.

Since this time, October Sky has not looked back. They followed their debut LP release with a national tour which touched down in 15 Canadian cities from Montreal to Vancouver. Their music often brings them on the road and they have also performed alongside such well-established artists and Alexisonfire, Mobile, Bad Religion, and Michel Pagliaro. As national winners of the Global Battle of the Bands, October Sky represented Canada in London, England in April 2010 at The Scala.
