Biography

This six-piece rock band has recieved serious national attention since their 2002 release By Design. The album has garnered national radio play with the title track and the band's music has been featured on MTV's Road Rules, The Real World, ABC's Making The Band, and ABC's Celebrity Mole. Most recently, Big Sky performed with Sheryl Crow at the National Hockey League's All-star game in Sunrise, FL to a sold out crowd of 10,000 people and over 1 million television viewers. The band's upcoming release (June 2003) will blow away fans and industry goers alike.

Underscored by the same collective energy they bring to their studio work, Big Sky explodes on stage. This is easily apparent by their consistently sold-out audiences, ever-growing fan base, and the sale of over 25,000 CDs. Look to their upcoming June (2003) release to deliver a fresh sound of their dynamic brand of rock and roll.

Lyrics

By Design

Written By: Big Sky

By Design

Slippin.
Back against the floor.
Looking up to no one, forward to nothing.
And, The sun beats down through the window;
it cast a shadow,
that crawls along the walls until it is no more.
I’m broken, by design.
CHORUS:
Why are you always giving me the runaround?
The only thing that ever drags me down.
Am I a tragedy, a human comedy? I wont make a sound. And you can drag me down.

Turning around to face in. Hope to find exactly where I had been.
It seems to take so long to find me.
But now I see. I found a home there. Solace in my fear
I think that I could fly away, but I don’t know for sure if I can find my way
CHORUS

Cellophane

Written By: Big Sky

Cellophane
In this time and place, "Age of Celebrity", cookie cutter protocol trumps originality and everything tastes like cardboard wrapped in cellophane.
Pre-Chorus: Skepticise and roll your eyes, you cannot control the signal coming through in stereo. Realize, surprise, surprise everything revolves around the ignorance of everyone and I'm the only one.
CHORUS: It looks like the devil had himself a good day. And he's coming around again. Always worried what the world will say and I'm stuck in compromise, choking on the lies today. Perception as reality is not the safest bet. When what you're shown is what you see and what you see is all you get. And everything taste like cardboard wrapped in cellophane.
Pre-chorus CHORUS: Am I, Am I, Am I the only one who wants to dance like there's no one else around? Am I the only one who wants to sing and shout; who wants to go all out; laughing like a drama major; driving with the top down? Am I the only one? Am I the only one?
CHORUS

Tomorrow

Written By: Big Sky

You might even loose your mind. And everyday could be a Sunday drive, a breakdown just might do you some good. With all your money in the wishing well and all the secrets you'll never tell, the road can be your master if you want it too. "Ob, la, di," they say that life goes on "Long after the thrill is gone" and now I know that every word is true.
Pre-chorus: You can read the writing on the wall. When inertia is hard to shake and time hates to sympathize at all.
CHORUS:If tomorrow never comes could you leave these things behind? Paint a picture of your world. Tell me what would we find inside? Like an actor who forgot his lines, your loosing ground now in your prime. There's only one way out that's up. What you gonna do. White knuckled, bracing for the fall. You’re on the edge waiting for the call, but your holding on.
Pre-chorus CHORUS:If tomorrow never comes, could you leave these things behind? Paint a picture of your world. Tell me what would we find inside? You say it's all the same to you but your still searching for a sign. If tomorrow never comes was it just a waste of time. Paint a picture of your world. Paint a picture of your world.
