by - Daniel Audet, Writer, Blogger, Radio Host (Feb 0Blue Sky Drive is a South Florida band that has just come charging over the indie artist and music horizon with a unique sound and blend of musical influences. If you're a country fan or alternative or even a pop music fan then this group of seasoned musicians will entertain you with the strong mix of ballads and freight train rocking tunes. My fav is "Breakdown". Give them a listen, I'm sure you will agree and follow them on their rise to stardom."
There's another Dream Factory on the East Coast by - Kael Moffat, Utne Reader(Mar 27, 2012)
There's another Dream Factory on the East Coast—Hollywood, Florida, from whence Blue Sky Drive hails, whose self-titled EP is a strong folk-rock offering. The disc comes pre-packaged with accolades—“Take My Hand” was named an honorable mention in VH1's 2010 Song of the Year contest. What makes this disc so listenable is Sheldon's sincere and immediate voice, reminiscent of Ani DiFranco, Lisa Loeb, or Jeff Tweedy, and the band's tight, clean sound. “Starlite” is peppy and inviting, while “Take My Hand,” is warm and earnest. The third track, “Breakdown,” is psychologically dense. Sprawling to over seven minutes, This song has a singular emotional punch that wanders through several musical styles, driving to atmospheric with a Peter Gabriel-esque vulnerability and grandeur. The fourth track, “Long to Be” completes the journey, taking solace and healing in nature and memory. The disc is well-produced, intelligently arranged, and leaves us wanting more."
