Low Skies was an American Indie-Rock band from Chicago, Illinois. Their sound was described as "consisting of moody, atmospheric rock with a strong country and desert-rock influence." The band formed in 2000 after a chance meeting between drummer Jason Creps and guitarist/vocalist Christopher Salveter. After deciding to record together, they played with a number of local musicians before settling on a permanent lineup with Jacob Ross on guitar, Brandon Ross on bass and Luther Rochester on keyboards. Low Skies self-released their first EP prior to signing with Flameshovel Records in 2002.
