Grey Season electrifies living room music, perching harmonies atop a sound that is, in essence, folk wrapped in rock n roll. Throughout the variety show that is a Grey Season performance, one might find most memorable the occasional 5 part harmony; blues rooted guitar solos between wholehearted lyricism, memorable melodies driven by the nostalgic plucking of bouzoukis and banjos. Grey Season is a band that calls upon a collective musical memory, while pushing forward as a band dedicated to the power of song and the hearts of a growing audience.
Their debut album, Time Will Tell You Well, was released to a sold-out show on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the Middle East in Cambridge, MA. It was produced by Boston Music Awards Producer-of-the-Year Benny Grotto and 3-time Grammy-winner Justin Guip at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY.
Grey Season is a 5 piece folk-rock band based out of Boston, MA. The members met in 2011 and began crafting their music by busking on the streets of Boston and Cambridge, learning how to please and cultivate an audience in the process.
Their debut EP "Troilus" was released in May 2013, and since then they have performed at a variety of venues throughout the Northeast: from radio stations, basements, pop-up markets, and conventions to galleries, bars, colleges and concert venues.
In January 2014, after a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign, Grey Season recorded their first full-length LP with Grammy-winning engineer Justin Guip and Boston Music Award Producer-of-the-Year Benny Grotto in Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY. The album, released in April 2014, exemplifies their constantly evolving sound and has been steadily garnering attention amongst their expanding national listenership.
"Time Will Tell You Well," has received critical and popular acclaim in the Boston community, and the band has been playing across the northeast in support of its release.
In 2015, Grey Season's performances at SXSW, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, and Lowell Summer Series made their national visibility palpable. The band is looking forward to their upcoming festival date at Boston Calling Music Festival.
