I Built The Sky is known for intricate guitar work, hooky melodies and an eclectic mix of tunes from heavy as hell in your face riffage, to stunning acoustic tunes and ambient pieces to drift off to, all intertwined with fantastic musicianship and some tidy production.

To start the year off I Built The Sky released a song and video for an acoustic track called ‘Striations’ which featured the very talented Tim McMillan and Rachel Snow and has surpassed 525,000 views 100,000 of which were reached in less than 2 days.

A solo project turned touring band, I Built The Sky managed to clock up some mileage touring Australia with Caligula’s Horse in the later part of 2017 with a headlining tour earlier in the year.
