The blu sky difference: So whats the difference with blu sky radio?...well everyone on the team loves music and wants Indie and Kiwi music to succeed around the globe..we think they have the right formula...check out the station and judge for yourselves..


Created by a group of Kiwis who want to see Indie global and Indie New Zealand music prosper in New Zealand and around the world - the station runs 24/7 and has a range of different shows that highlight Indie and Kiwi music 24/7.


Playing an eclectic range of music blu sky is proud to get Indie and Kiwi music heard - so much so that they have a show called "Indie Garage" which plays Indie music from the garage - thats right! - rough and ready garage recordings from aspiring bands can now be heard on the station, providing an avenue for Kiwi talent to be heard in its formative stages - apparently thats how Nirvana were discovered!!


Blu sky has teamed up with "Crank it Up Magazine in America to provide a "bridge to America" through this well established online Indie Magazine. John Reign the director of Crank It Up and also the director of Polestar Productions a movie company that makes independent films for Amazon Prime and other distributors is excited about the new connection.


"We're excited to be working with people like blu sky who have the energy and the direction and chutzpa to get music more widely heard - we'll be working with them to bring great Indie Artists to New Zealand and the well as reverse marketing Kiwi artists to America on the Crank It Up platform, a place where you will be able to sell your music and make more money than through any other distribution service like the currentl online stores and streaming services..


We know Laurie Stanbridge, mPHATic, Dionne Bidois, Maryanne and Tony T will bring an exciting new station to the world and we want to partner with them to showcase Indie music from the world to the world.


We will link American Indie musicians to the station and also link Kiwi Indie musicians to Crank iT Up Magazine - we believe there may be other opportunites we can link to as we build a solid group to promote Indies Artist from around America, New Zealand, Canada and the world to the people fo the world. This will be fresh exciting new music - not music regulated by people sitiing in ivory towers trying to control what the world listens to - this will be ground breaking music...fresh and exciting and different...


You might be asking - yeah but will they play my music - and the answer is a resounding YES! Laurie Stanbridge runs the Library at blu sky and you can email tracks to him by following the intructions on the blusky facebook page. Tracks must be well recorded and produced to be played but there is a real desire to showcase kiwi music to the world. Tracks that are not well produced will be played on the Indie Garage everyone has a chance to be heard...


Go Blu sky!! its about time we had a station like your to promote Indie music around the globe!!!
