Grey Sky Symphony is a project that encompasses the musical escapades of singer-songwriter Dillon Hutyra. Dillon’s adventures in the world of music started with piano lessons in elementary school soon followed by joining the school band program on clarinet. Since then he’s learned a number of other instruments and done everything from serving as a clarinet squad leader in marching band to producing two instrumental electronic albums and composing/ conducting a 3-movement symphony for wind ensemble. The roots of Grey Sky Symphony started with Forum, an alt-rock band he formed with a bunch of (awesome) friends during high school. When Forum was forced to break up due to college and what not, Dillon decided to continue his endeavors as a solo artist and eventually adopted the name Grey Sky Symphony. Dillon spent his first year of college at The University of North Texas (he originally planned on majoring in music composition) and is now studying Sound Recording Technology at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX.

Grey Sky Symphony’s sound is often compared to that of Death Cab For Cutie and Owl City, but draws influences from a number of other bands such as Wilco, Coldplay, The Decemberists, Good Old War, Bright Eyes, Said The Whale, and Tokyo Police Club.

At the moment, Grey Sky Symphony is mainly doing performances around San Marcos, TX and Dillon’s hometown, Grapevine, TX. Though a lot of GSS’s shows tend to be solo performances, other musicians/ friends may join in depending on the gig.
