About Grey Sanford Band
With a uniquely appealing sound and unassuming style, Grey Sanford has a singer/songwriter feel with hints of blues, jazz, rock & a little bit of jam which harkens back the sound of The Allman Bros & Marshall Tucker Band with a new millennium spin. With their infectious melodies, harmonies, chilled hooks and honest lyrics Grey Sanford, based out of Providence RI, has gathered quite a diverse following. At any given show youll find a crowd filled with a range of ages from 20 somethings to 50 somethings, each dancing and singing along and wanting more. Started in the winter of 2004, Grey Sanford was born around 4 musicians with a love of music and songwriting. With influences ranging from Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Stevie Ray to Grant Lee Phillips, Dave Matthews and Phish, Grey Sanford intricately weaves these different styles into their songwriting to create a sound all their own. Their first CD Sunday Morning Breakfast, was released in 2005 and was quickly embraced by their loyal fans who wasted no time learning the lyrics and singing them at live shows. 2006 began with the rootsy, americana styled "Country Song" being selected as a finalist in VH1's song of the year contest. In the summer of 2006 Grey Sanford rounded out their lineup and sound with the addition of two new members. The soulful vocals of singer/songwriter Kim Petrarca and grooved out fretless bass stylings of Mike Geer have brought their sound to the next level. Grey Sanford is currently working with Grammy Award winning producer Vini Poncia (Ringo Starr, Kiss) on their follow up album. With 2 songs already introduced at the live shows, Shes Like and Crazy All Over Again have quickly become fan favorites. GSB has shared the stage with many great artists including Badfish, Damone, The Click Five & Garrison Star. Grey Sanfords infectious melodies and hooks combined with their love for playing music create a musical atmosphere to let loose, chill out and more importantly have fun.
