A recording born during lockdown, Big Sky Mountain pay tribute to their country roots with their latest single ‘Bed Of Roses’. Lassoing the talents of producer Jackson Barclay (Vera Blue, The McClymonts), this evocative, tell it like it is, boot skootin’ ballad captures all that it means to be human. The hopes, the failures and the comebacks.
The seven piece all female Americana band from Sydney bring it on home with soaring harmonies and lush arrangements and quotable lyrics. Featuring guest Aussie slide legend Bruce Reid who puts the twang in the …. “The ultimate silver lining in a really crap year – this is one to curl up in bed with.”
Big enough to be a netball team but small enough to be a good luck charm … BSM don’t look like your typical Australian country band … Seven women, a kaleidoscope of harmonies and one trumpet – chaotic, earthy and real. Big Sky Mountain make no apologies for not having an obscure cool edge, they are what they are and they love what they do.
With a sound reminiscent of The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and a pinch of Kasey Musgraves, these ladies can sing and they’ll hold you to ransom with their jaw dropping harmonies, driving rhythm section and fierce musicality.
2019 saw the birth of ‘All Our Minutes’ – the first studio album from Big Sky Mountain. Produced by ARIA award winner Paul McKercher, the album is clean, classy and commercial and already boasts international sales in Europe, South America and Asia.
In their short time together, the band has already played gigs at the Perisher Peak Music Festival, Girrakool Blues Festival, completed regional tours, become regulars on the Sydney live music scene and where also invited to perform at the 2020 National Folk Festival in Canberra. Early 2020 also saw Big Sky Mountain make their debut at the Tamworth Country Music Festival to packed shows that captured them a bounty of new fans.
During the COVID pandemic Big Sky Mountain got busy in the studio re-defining their recorded sound with producer Jackson Barclay. The results were two fantastic new singles, a new contemporary twist on their sound and a fabulous musical partnership.
