Enter the Blue Sky is a collection of dedicated instrumentalists in support of passionate storytelling at its best. Playful and lighthearted at times, the majority of their sound is a composite of poetic, original, and unique melodies that create a space for reminiscing, musing, and a desire to take the journey with them. Supported by warm tones and textures, the songs are lyrically- and vocally-driven in an atypical yet harmonious blend.
After winning Best Female Vocalist and Best Female Entertainer of the Year in 2017 at the West Coast Country Music Association competition, Sandé Lollis went on to win Best Female Vocalist of the Year nationally in 2018 with the North America Country Music Association International in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Sandé has performed regionally in several bands over the years, and writes all songs for the band. Her lyrics are thoughtful and melodies hard to forget. As rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist for Enter the Blue Sky, Sandé is a powerhouse of energy and melodic bliss.
Not a back burner type, Karen Childress-Evans on viola, jumps in with both feet and keeps smiling. A refreshing and innovative team player, she brings achingly beautiful tones and a classic sensibility to the project.
Happy to be part of the trio, Paul Tillery on bass, is the consummate yes man, both in attitude and style, always at the ready with tasty solos and silky bow work, leaving the listener in a haunted state of elation.
Each member of Enter the Blue Sky brings years of experience and individual talent together to blend into a new and vibrant musical force on the scene.
