Blueskyreality have been touring the United States opening for alternative rock veterans, Third Eye Blind for the better part of the Summer to promote their upcoming EP 'Cabin Sessions' which drops this Tuesday, October 13th (available on iTunes). Likened to bands like Maroon 5 and Incubus, the five piece have already proven their level of musicianship through self-recording and production for the release of their first EP; with these credits under their collective belt they are full of promise and poised to become mainstays on the alternative rock music scene.
Hailing from Santa Barbara, Blueskyreality have gone from a three-piece accompaniment to full-fledged indie rock band with the addition of two new members in 2008. They will be joining our eclectic roster of musical acts for the live music portion of the Rock-n-Platinum showcase, performing an stripped down set, featuring songs from the brand new EP. We would like to thank all of the talented musicians who are helping us raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles through this unique blend of design and sound!
Over the course of his career, Ben has afforded his time, money and talent to a number of charity organizations, most recently donating a portion of the profits from the sale of his February 2009 album release 'The Rebirth of Venus,' an album that celebrates Venus, the Goddess of love and beauty. A portion of the proceeds raised benefited FINCA's Village Banking Program, a charity organization that offers financial services to the world's lowest-income female entrepreneurs.
Ben will be performing an acoustic set during the music portion of the Rock-n-Platinum showcase on Thursday, October 29, a charity event benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. This one-of-a-kind interior design showcase will take place at the new Lofts @ Cherokee Studios in West Hollywood, the former site of the iconic Cherokee Recording Studios. This unique blend of music and the very best of green design + architecture will all converge under one roof for one night only.
