Enter the Blue Sky



A multi-year San Diego Music Award nominee, 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 blend of poetry, and original and unique melodies that make room for reminiscing and musing, and encourage the listener to journey with them. Supported by warm inflections and textures, the sincerity of the lyrics and the band’s delivery is nuanced and powerful at the same time.

Award-winning vocalist and songwriter Sandé Lollis writes all songs for the band. Her performance is raw and emotional, and wholly uplifting. Sandé’s lyrics are thoughtful and speak to all generations, her melodies are hard to forget, moving and soulful. As rhythm guitarist and lead singer for Enter the Blue Sky, Sandé is an indomitable spark 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.

Backing vocalist Tina Dee adds an enthusiastic undercurrent of harmonies suited perfectly to Sandé’s leads, and to three-part with Karen making for transcendent moments of joy. Her voice is smooth and buttery, and puts a delicate finish on each song.

Each member of Enter the Blue Sky is committed to creating a welcoming and rich soundscape, fitting together like pieces of a musical puzzle. The talent and experience of the band is showcased collectively, as well as with lush and stirring solos.
