Bio

They scream, but they’re not screamo. They have emotion infused lyrics, but they’re not emo. In a time of ever evolving musical styles, Aurora Skyline spans across music genres to become, simply put, a straight ahead rock band.

Aurora Skyline, formerly known as Blank Verse, began in 2001 when Andrew Clary, Chuck Medlin and Ryan Sims joined in Lufkin, Texas to form a band by mixing their talents and their favorite music. Andy Satterwhite came on in the summer of 2002 to bring his drumming abilities to the group. Ryan left in 2004 and Sean McClure joined in July of that year. Sean brought with him a unique style of guitar playing, mixing a sound of blues and jazz that are evident through his solos. He also brings a guitar tone and style that is heavier than the previous sound. The sound ends up a culmination of driving bass riffs, screaming guitar solos, intricate, but solid drums parts and melodic vocals that seem to transform the listener into a new dimension.

Like most musicians who have played for some time, the members of Aurora Skyline have no choice but to play music. Just as the blood flows through their veins, the music falls from their bodies. What may have started out as an escape for each of them in their respective homes as young boys has now turned into a love and passion – a life.

They presently have two recordings out. The first, Waiting on June, was released under the previous name Blank Verse. The second is a two-song demo. They will go into the studio in January to begin recording their first full length cd, set to be released in the spring of 2005. They currently play around Austin and can be found frequenting the stage at places like Momo’s, The Backroom, Red Rum, Room 710, Red Eyed Fly, Headhunters and Maggie Mae’s. They have also shared the stage with such Austin acts as Rubberhed, Ill Camino, Dames Violet and many others. After the much anticipated CD release, the band plans on touring throughout Texas and as far as the music will take them.

As life has handed them more challenges and opportunities, their sound has begun to change. One of their newer songs called “Believe Again” is not about a girl , for once, proving that they are able to use life’s experiences to open boundaries in both their lyrics and their sound. It is this growing up while growing together that allows Aurora Skyline the ability to break rules and define their own style of music.⋆
