This week’s Pick of the Week is for a band called Open Sky, and we loved how their cool blue and black design came out on our acetal material picks. “After years of preparation, Open Sky is about to burst onto the scene with their debut full length album! Brothers Mike, Jared and Nathan, along with longtime friend Jon, have been tirelessly forging songs that feature infectious rhythms and powerful, heartfelt lyrics from their studio in Ottawa, Canada. Over the years, Open Sky has worked in various studios across Canada, including the prestigious Metalworks Studios in Mississauga, and has shared the stage with acts such as Starfield, Honeymoon Suite, Social Code and Grammy winners Leeland. ‘Hearing the lyrics of our songs is like reading a page from my journal.’ Mike comments on his writing style. ‘We just open our hearts and empty them onto the page. Nothing fancy, just raw emotion.’ Adds Nathan. And finally, after years of writing, rewriting and fine tuning, Open Sky is set to bring their music and their hearts to the public. A message of hope prevails throughout the album, pushing the listener to press on through whatever life might throw at them. It’s this hope that drives Open Sky as a band and as individuals to live life to the fullest and inspire others, through their music, to do the same. It’s as the famous playwright Oscar Wilde once said, ‘We’re all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.’ And we can only see those stars when there’s an Open Sky.'” Find out more about Open Sky at www.openskyband.com.
