Outgrabe's "Bullet the Blue Sky" Music Video Racks Up Awards

LOUISVILLE -- In early 2005, Boojum Records created a documentary-style music video to accompany Outgrabe's recording of U2's classic anti-war anthem, "Bullet the Blue Sky." This gritty yet moving video has helped spark the widespread airplay of "Bullet the Blue Sky" in North America and Europe. At the 2005 Telly Awards, one of the premier international shows for television and video, the "Bullet the Blue sky" video was honored by judges around the world with two Tellies and one finalist trophy.

Recently, Outgrabe’s "Bullet the Blue Sky" music video won a 2005 Silver Davey Award as well. This show, sponsored by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, honors groundbreaking creative productions by indie firms.

These awards are just the latest recognition for Outgrabe, the San Francisco pop rock duo that has been taking North American college radio by storm. Now playing on almost 700 radio stations around the world, Outgrabe's new version of the San Francisco sound has been hailed by the press as something new, evocative, sexy, spooky, and transcendent.

For example, Accent on Tampa, St. Petersburg, FL, said: "Outgrabe has the ability to sound like LA punk legends X at some points and Heart at others. The two harmonizing vocalists of the group, Christopher St. John and Chloe Calaveras, intertwine their complementing roles with a smooth and dark twist."

And Zero Magazine in San Jose, CA weighed in with: "Outgrabe's release entitled City of God features seven incredibly new and original songs. The band features prominently the vocal talents of both male and female - Christopher St. John, who, along with vocals displays his talent with an acoustic guitar and Chloe Calaveras, who reminds me of Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac."

A sneak preview of Outgrabe's newest music video can be seen at www.outgrabe.com. Free mp3 downloads are available there as well. CDs are may be purchased at www.amazon.com and many other outlets. (Janice Hergovy)
