Elements Of Style started out as a solo project by former Atlanta band Suburban Soul's lead guitarist Gram Wire. After leaving Suburban Soul in September of 2010, Wire was interested in recording a unique album that included "elements" of alternative hard rock, blues, jazz, funk, hip-hop, acoustic folk and world music. The result was a full length 11 song album entitled "Waves" that was recorded with DJ Rhett Whatley (known as DJ Dale E Bread) at Virtuo Sound Studio in Canton, Georgia on January 18th, 2011. The album was a cavalcade of multiple genres, following the blueprint of such bands as The Minutemen, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sublime. The original lineup for the recording was Wire on guitars, keyboards, and vocals, as well as guest musicians including Grammy nominated jazz bassist Joseph Patrick Moore and Grammy award winning drummer from The Derek Trucks Band Yonrico Scott. After tracking for the record was completed on June 30th, 2011 and mastered by legendary engineer Rodney Mills (Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, The Doobie Brothers), Wire decided to turn Elements of Style into a "Beatle-esque" 4-piece group. He enlisted a talented group of songwriter musicians including the passionate and exhilarating Alex Stone on bass and vocals, genius guitarist and vocalist Jake Brown, and singer, drummer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Goosman to fill out the lineup as an all vocal juggernaut. Look out for upcoming gigs around the Atlanta/Athens area soon!!
