They started out by making a name for themselves in their local area by playing in a number of bars and schools, mostly in their hometown. Today, October Sky also consists of Andrew Walker and Yanik Rouleau, and are more professional than ever before, although it took several years to become so. In 2005, October Sky won their first contest, "Exposure," presented at Club Soda in Montreal. In the summer of that same year, they took home their second contest, organized by les Studios Sixième Sens, finishing first of 85 bands. Following the contest, October Sky had the opportunity to cross paths with La Shop Musicale, a company that took them under their wing, allowing them to produce their first professional recording. During this time, the band also had the chance to work with TAXI agency in designing the concept of all visual material related to the band, namely the band's logo, and the concept for the MySpace web site and the EP's cover design. The band members spent a good part of 2006 in studio and released their EP demo album September 23 at College St-Maurice auditorium in Saint-Hyacinthe for a crowd of more than 500 people. Performing their first professional and self produced concert, the band was able to awe their spectators and prove to them that they had reached a new level in their career. The October Sky name was meanwhile promoted, being featured on the cover page of the "Les Versants" newspaper of Saint-Bruno, and also appeared in "L'Oeil Régional," the local newspaper of Beloeil, and in "Le Courrier" of Saint-Hyacinthe. Furthermore, October Sky's music has been broadcasted on several radio stations across Canada, such as HITS FM, CIUT FM and CFBX FM (located in Montreal, Toronto, and Kamlooops, BC, respectively), and the group was ranked in the "Top Charts" of the two latter. They were also listed as number one on, an online radio website, for independent artists. October Sky is now backed by an administrative team with whom they have been working in the aim of achieving their full potential, which as yet is limitless. They are currently working on the creation of a new album as well as a whole new show. To be continued...
