Our Story

A few years ago, I answered an ad on Craigslist for some folks looking for a guitarist. The thing about that ad was that it seemed to have been written directly to me; as if they already knew me. I replied, and we agreed to get together. We played music that, at the time, was new to me - a mix of country and roots and Americana, yet recalled the music I loved when I was a kid, and I had more fun playing than I had in a long time. But, as it turned out, geography and life prevented me from joining them. Then, a year later, they approached me again. They had a name, Bleu Skyes, were looking for a guitarist, and they had a new singer, Sandra Macat. From the first time I heard her voice, I knew Sandra was the singer I wanted to make music with. Bleu Skyes was her first band experience, but her voice possessed a warmth and richness that reflected a lifetime of experience, and revealed her deep passion for singing. Time went by and I left Bleu Skyes, but it wasn't long before we began this project. It's been slow going, progress made in fits and starts; members coming and going, songs learned and set aside, but it's been a labor of love all along. With Ed Esposito on drums, Andy Batwinas on guitar, and Gene Williams on bass, we'd like to invite you to join us on our musical journey.  -Doug Reichert
