Despite starting out solely as a hobby and studio-only project, ‘Ro’ has transformed I Built The Sky into a fully-fledged, live act, performing worldwide.
I Built The Sky first made the voyage to Europe/UK in 2018 performing 23 shows with Aussie Prog friends Caligula’s Horse and Circles and by 2019, Ro left his teaching job to pursue I Built The Sky full time.
2020 saw Ro representing Bare Knuckle Pickups at America's own NAMM convention before returning to Europe/UK to perform with progressive metal heavyweights Monuments across another 23 dates.
Over the last few years, I Built The Sky has released the album ‘The Zenith Rise' which received a Top 13 debut (AIR) and Top 20 debut (iTunes charts), single ‘The Fire Inside’ featuring members of Monuments, an EP titled ‘Coalesce’ in collaborative with Jake Howsam Lowe featuring members of Intervals, The Omnific and world-renowned string smith Andre Nieri. ‘Coalesce’ debuted at #1 on Bandcamp across 4 categories including Djent, Progressive Metal, Progressive Rock and Guitar categories, #3 AIR charts and a top 40 debut on the iTunes charts.
2022 sees Ro make his most ambitious moves yet, with new album ‘The Quiet Place Away’ which sees his acoustic side take the lead with stunning results. The new album features live strings, mandolin, banjo, piano/keyboard and more with lushes arrangements and production by world-renowned producer Forrester Savell.
I Built The Sky are firmly set to take charge on stage in 2022 leading off with 3 ‘Uncaged’ Festival dates in Australia, followed by national and international headline shows, tours and festivals.
