Biography

"The language of music is a beautiful thing that many seek to take part in, all the while hoping to add something to its melody. It is something that we love and enjoy, and something that hopefully we will be able to contribute to in some way."
-Ricky Taylor

In the fall of 2008, four musicians came together at a Moes in Charleston, SC and decided that there would be no other option than to start creating music. The goal was to create indie pop music that was easy to grab a hold of, but not surfacy to the point that there would be no depth to its lyrical content. At the helm of the songwriting are front man Ricky Taylor and drummer Josh Luke who stream many of their influences from bands such as Copeland, As Cities Burn, and Sigor Ros. Joining with them is guitarist Brian "Jonas" Jarvis and bassist Austin Campbell, who each had successful stints in fronting other bands. With all of the pieces now in place to begin the writing process, Meet the Sky began on its journey. Recording their first EP with producer Taylor Bray (The Dirt and The Flood, The Lovely Few) in October of 2008, the band came out of the studio with 4 songs that accurately expressed their musical desire to maintain an indie band feel, while incorporating different elements of the pop rock world into the mix. With their debut EP released February 4th of 2009, expectations are high for this group. Whether it's their catchy melody lines or their meaningful lyrics, the band's hope is to embrace the calling that has been placed on their lives and point people ultimately to the hope that lies within the songs they write. With more studio time slated with producer Lane Johnson (Rookie of the Year, the Record Kid), the future is an exciting place to look forward to, but it's hardly the focus. Meet the Sky's desire to progress musically is constantly on the forefront as they move from a relatively unknown band into the mainstream, but as they tred toward the future, they sure don't dissappoint with their current offering.

Lyrics

To Night

Written By: Ricky Taylor

Time is on our side, is on our side tonight - we step in line, and hope rests in our minds, is in our minds tonight - we're more than fine. Staring into those eyes - the star's reflections so devine - a risk never worth more than tonight, because it all comes down to this, it all comes down to this - it all sums up to this love. Time is on our side, is on our side tonight - we step in line, and love is in our eyes, is in our eyes tonight - your hand in mine. Staring into those eyes - the star's reflections so devine - a risk never worth more than tonight, because it all comes down to this, it all comes down to this - it all sums up to this love. Time is on our side, is on our side tonight - your hand in mine. Staring into those eyes - the star's reflections so devine - a risk never worth more than tonight, because it all comes down to this, it all comes down to this - it all sums up to this love.

The Needed Becomes the Needy

Written By: Ricky Taylor and Joshua Luke

searching for a way out
i've come this far on my own
i think i found what i want
but is it what i need
all these questions surrounding
it's killing me

hold to me love, hold to me love
we can make it out to tell

please take me away from here
(i've waited so long)
draw me close to your heart
i can't seem to shake the fear
(my love holds here)
is it enough to lift me up
is it enough to lift me

could i even ask that you'd forgive me
ask that you'd forgive me
ask that you'd forgive me
it's killing me

hold to me love, hold to me love
we can make it out to tell

hold to me (is it enough to lift me up)
hold to me (is it enough to lift me up)
hold to me

hold to me love, hold to me love
we can make it out to tell

i'm falling in, falling in, falling into open arms
falling in, falling in, falling into your heart

we can make it out to tell

Some Call This Giving Up, I Call It Progress

Written By: Ricky Taylor Austin Campbell and Joshua Luke

would you stay here, for just a little while
cause this can more than a passing moment as you pass me by
you’ve captured my attention, though i’m unable to find
an escape from this confusion that controls my mind

this is not what i imagined it would be
this is not what i imagined

come close
is this who we are, is it me who needs to go
cause every single second i waste is a moment the truth remains concealed
that it’s you who needs me here
it’s you who needs me

i’m not invisible
i am not, i am not invisible

this is not what i imagined it would be
this is not what i imagined

come close
is this who we are, is it me who needs to go
cause every single second i waste is a moment the truth remains concealed
that it’s you who needs me here
it’s you who needs me

this is not what i imagined it would be
this is not what i imagined

a lovely dream

It's Been Three Months Since My Last Confession

Written By: Ricky Taylor

light find your way
a smile that once shown clear
has all but disappeared
and is there maybe one thing i can say to cause me to find your eyes
can you hear me out
will you answer me now

rest now love

hope find your stay
it seems you're all i have
at least what's left to grasp
and is there maybe one thing i can say to cause me to find your arms
will you hear me out
will you answer me now

rest now love

Day

Written By: Ricky Taylor and Joshua Luke

stride for stride we dance to the rise and fall of the crashing tides
my sunshine
night comes soon
though the clouds reel around us i'll stay still here with you

light is fading
won't you run away with me
the night embracing
won't you run away to the other side of the sea
we'll be free

your hand in mine
a smile breaks through as we walk to the rise of the moon

i can't imagine life without you
i can't imagine life

light is fading
won't you run away with me
the night embracing
won't you run away to the other side of the sea
we'll be free

see the sun shine
see the sun shine on our new life

see the sun shine
see the sun shine on our new life
it's a new life

stride for stride we dance to the rise and fall of the crashing tides
my sunshine
