|Artist||The Gracious Few|
Produced by legendary Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads, LIVE, No Doubt, Foo Fighters) the self-titled debut “The Gracious Few” captivates with
amazing songwriter qualities and the charismatic voice of ex-CANDLEBOX singer Kevin Martin.
“We knew what type of album would get us excited. We were pissed off and sick and tired of the status quo. We wanted a return to music
that wasn’t careful to please the masses. We had that with our previous bands,” Taylor reveals.
The album opens with the hard driving “Appetite,” a song Gracey is quick to name his favorite. “I can’t get enough, the mix of bass, guitars and
drums with Kevin’s vocal just kills. This is a song that will crush at our live shows.” The tender “What’s Wrong” will remind listeners of early Black
Crows or even Prince while “Crying Time,” was written to honor a fallen friend.
The collection of songs takes you on a musical journey from heavy guitar riffs to Reggae infl uenced Rock to more ethereal tracks and closes with the
fi nale “Sing,” a no holds barred anthem that captures the grand emotion of arena sing-a-longs as Martin bellows, “I take my place and I am song! I
wanna sing, sing my song.”
“We wanted to capture the raw, unfi ltered energy of the music. The drama of the last few years really aided in their ability to capture an
internal energy.” (Jerry Harrison; producer)
