Grey Season

Thursday / July 10, 2014 / 12:00 p.m.
Kendall Square
300 Athenaeum Street
Cambridge
MA

Grey Season electrifies living room music, perching harmonies atop a sound that envelopes folk in rock 'n' roll. The variety show that is a Grey Season performance may include the occasional five-part harmony,  blues rooted guitar solos and lyricism, and 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 with the power of song and the hearts of a growing audience.

"[Grey Season's] songs on life, love, heartache, and hope are so wonderfully constructed they could leave an impression on even the coldest of souls". -Under The Gun Review
