“Atlanta alt-folk band von Grey is made up of four real-life sisters. Think of them like Mumford & Daughters,” quipped the “Conan” website. The group’s self-titled EP jumped into the Top 10 of the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart the day after von Grey’s performance on “Conan,” which can be viewed at: http://teamcoco.com/node/50122
The current issue of Billboard takes a look at the classically trained sisters in a “Scouting Report,” noting: “One listen to von Grey’s first single, ‘Coming for You,’ explains the buzz. Crystalline harmonies, stirring lyrics and inventive melodies are the calling cards of [the] siblings…”
The band continues to tour in support of its independently released EP, which was recorded with GRAMMY® award-winning producer/engineer Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Train, The Gaslight Anthem). See below for itinerary. Upcoming dates include a performance during the opening session at NARM’s Music Biz 2013 conference on May 8. The band will also headline a trio of festivals in Georgia taking place in conjunction with the FTI THEATRE REVIVAL TOUR, which will showcase three of the Fox Theatre Institute’s latest theatre restoration projects.
