EP- Blue Sky Miners (self titled)
Release Date- October 23, 2015
Genre- Rocky Mountain Desert Rock
The Blue Sky Miners are a five piece band currently based in Toronto, and are most definitely one to keep an eye on. Their sound is a mix of melodic strong harmonies, that leave you wondering where a band like this has been.
While listening to their new self titled EP, I was taken on a ride full emotions. It’s one of those that you just sit down, you listen and really do “Get lost” in the music. It was needless to say one of my favorite EP’s of recent months.
The first single off the EP is Cold Water, a dreamy, folky tune. My other favorite was “Are you Lost”, a forlorn yet catchy composition. This EP feels so relaxed, filled with beautiful lyrics, catchy riffs, and strong elegant vocals. I am in love with the mix of male and female vocals featured in this band, and I look forward to hearing more from them as they progress.
Having finished up a West Coast tour and having done a few shows locally in recent weeks, I hope to see this band live in the future. Make sure to check out their EP release party in Toronto today (October 23, 2015).
Get in touch with Blue Sky Miners:
I wear many hats, such as working full time as an ophthalmic assistant, Birth Doula, selling Younique- and now I also have taken up writing with Canadian Beats. I have always enjoyed writing, and I am so excited to be doing it again. We all need outlets and this for me is something that I love to do. Music has always been a big part of my life, and attending concerts is one of my favorite things to do. The energy that I get from seeing a band play live is like no other, I think it’s almost an addiction for me!
I tend to lean towards rock, alternative, indie, folk and acoustic music- but I am also open to listening to something new too! Maybe I’ll see you around at a concert!
