ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Green Sky Grey's has been attacking the Columbus, OH. music scene since they were formed in 1997. Their musical message continues to spread to a growing number of fans, not only in Columbus, but throughout the state.

In February of 1999, the self-titled debut album was released on their own Poor Boy Records. The sophomore follow-up, "Walking Blind", was released January 2001 and maintains the positive momentum and buzz that has already begun. The CD release party was held at the legendary Newport Music Hall, with over 500 fans in attendance.
In addition to the release of two CDs, career highlights include sharing stages with national acts such as 38 Special, Robin Trower, Marshal Tucker Band, and King's X. GSG has also warmed the crowds for the Eagles concert pre-party outside the Schottenstein's Arena and pre-game/half time show for the Major League Lacrosse 2002 Championship at the Crew Stadium. Several tracks from both CDs have acquired airplay on Columbus' 99.7 WBZX, 101.1 WWCD, and 96.3 WLVQ. Ohio University's WOSB and Ohio Wesleyan's WSLN, nearby college radio stations, also included GSG in their play lists. GSG did their part for the community by taking the stage to benefit the Vietnam Veterans of America as well as Aids Walk 2000 and 2001.

GSG's focus on their goal of establishing themselves as the Midwest's premier young rock band remains strong. With an eye toward breaking onto the national scene, their emphasis on strong songwriting, powerful live performances, and an overall passion for music is undeniable.

Green Sky Grey's all original music has a rock base with a healthy dose of memorable pop hooks. With the current musical climate overflowing with uninspired hip-hop clichés, bubblegum boy-bands and rap-metal misfits, the eclectic combination of driving rock guitar, powerful grooves, passionate vocals and memorable hook-laden songs has proven to be a breath of fresh air.

A Good Rock Record.
Having never heard Green Sky Grey before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. They aren’t one of those bands who has a name resembling their sound, which is a quality that I both like and admire in a band. It allows the band the freedom to keep you guessing about their next move.

From their first track, it was obvious that this record wasn’t another futile attempt to re-invent Pantera. This record is pure rock. Aside from the excellent production quality of this record, the record reminds me of artists like Seven Mary Three, Live, or Vertical Horizon. Not too soft, not too hard, but just the right blend of everything to make something that everyone can enjoy. However, the music of Green Sky Grey has more of an edge to it than that of the bands I mentioned before. There is a definite guitar rock vibe on some tracks, and this may not be accidental. The guys in this band can all definitely play their instruments, but they obviously know the difference between playing & showing off.

"The Fading Light” has a good variety of music, from rockers to ballads & everywhere in between. The vocals are smooth and legible, with more emphasis on melody and harmony than on screaming and crying. Likewise, the songs are not about a battered molested child with homicidal/suicidal tendencies, which seems to be the band wagon that many people have jumped on these days. These are good solid songs that were well written, and equally well performed. The music itself shows a definite knowledge of how to write a good song that will be more than just a “flash in the pan”.

"The Fading Light" by Green Sky Grey is a great record, and a great addition to anyone‘s CD collection. It’s the kind of radio friendly music that you would expect to already be on the radio nationwide. If this band keeps turning out great records like this, it would seem that it is only a matter of time before they are receiving national airplay. But, I guess only time will tell.
