Celebrating its 20th year, the Key West Songwriters Festival is the largest festival of its kind in the world. The event is being held at the Smokin' Tuna Saloon - Key West's premier music venue. Since 1997, BMI has been a presenting sponsor of the festival and has helped it grow into both a tourist attraction and favorite of island locals. The festival revolves around five days and nights, where live music is showcased through the stories behind the songs. And in this case, the interesting and conceptual lyrics of GREYE will surely be a standout.
The Florida-based group of musicians is comprised of five members: Hannah Summer (vocals), Jett Wolfe (guitar and vocals), Josh Reid (bass and vocals), Ray Grimard (drums and percussion), and Ken-e Williams (keyboards and vocals). Greye intertwines traditional acoustic folk instruments with additional guitar influences and you may pick up on the sounds of John Butler, Brian May, or Greg Lake, Steely Dan, Traffic, Motown or the prog rock sounds of YES.
The NEW CD 'The Tube' is a fresh collection of tunes from Greye, and is their second. Consisting of 14 cohesive tracks, the 'spirit of the London train' is echoed throughout the concept CD, especially in the title track, 'The Tube'. Hannah Summer's distinctive voice stands out in 'Devils School' and 'Cellophane'. Fans of the band will enjoy that free downloads of all songs on 'The Tube' will be available on both Reverbnation and via their website starting 5/9 at greyemusic.com
To quote Jon Allred, of Indie Music Lives Here,
'forget 50 shades, one dose of Greye is all you need'!
