Bring Down the Sky was formerly a two man jam band known as Andre and the Machine. Consisting of guitarist Steve Braddock and drummer Matt Witt. They started their project in the Fall of '09, shortly after they aquired keyboardist Johnny Langdon. His unique style of playing catchy tones over Steve's upbeat guitar lended a new sound to the group.
A few Months later in the Summer of 2010, Steve was walking down Lakeshore Boulevard in Willowick,Ohio, jamming out on his acoustic while walking home from work. When soon to be lead vocalist Brandon Baker jumped out of some bushes and challenged him to a guitar battle. The two got to talking and soon became friends. Later, Steve asked Brandon to come jam with Andre and the Machine and shortly after, he was in.
A few weeks after that, they asked a long time friend of Matt's, Kacey Cullers, to try out to play bass. She was a perfect fit after a few others who never really panned out. After realizing that there was already a band with a similar name, they became Bring Down the Sky.
In March of 2011 they played their frist show. It was a free show at a local coffee shop formerly called The Enclave with another local band Measure Me Sky.
Since then they have played a multitude of shows with a variety of bands such as: Eatmewhileimhot!, Aiden, Eyes Set To Kill, Hawthorne Heights, We Came As Romans, Sick oh Sarah, and Falling in Reverse!
The greatest oppurtunity of their careers in july on 2011 when they got to play on the 2011 Vans Warped Tour in Camden New Jersey on the Kia Kevin Says Stage.
Their music is to some a mixture of styles ranging from Pop Punk, Post Hardcore, Screamo, and Ambient type music. They are seeking to further their growth in music by beggining their own tour and getting to get their music out to be heard by ears that have never heard it before.
for the future!
we hope to play music for all that will listen. after picking up a clothing sponsor, (Acathla) we presume to seek mangement!!!! if you have a lead, we would love to hear from you!
