Grey Revell's Roman Candles / Bio

Grey Revell (born October 28, 1973) is a music producer and songwriter originally from Los Angeles, California. In the late 1990s, he moved to New York City, where among other artists, including Kimya Dawson, Jeffrey Lewis and Regina Spektor, he found a creative home in the Lower East Side Anti-folk community.

In recent years, he has produced numerous independent artists, most notably The Show Is On The Road, Anti-folk stalwart Paleface's 2009 release on The Avett Brothers Ramseur Records Label.

With a strong emphasis on melody and atmospherics, His own work has drawn comparisons to artists like Grant Lee Phillips, Joe Henry, and Brian Eno.

"I'd Still Remember", featured on 2005's Little Animals, became a minor hit among fans of the National Lampoon film, Adam and Eve, starring Emmanuelle Chriqui.

He has one son with New Orleans- based singer Patricia Grace, who he divorced in 2009, and is currently living in Charlotte, North Carolina.

His song Gone Gone from 1999's "Crazy Like An Ambush" LP was featured in the Antifolk Vol. 1 compilation disc released by Rough Trade 2002, and later picked up for Hewlett Packard's 2012-13 Impresora Deskjet Campaign in Central and South America.

Spending most of 2012 on the road with Paleface as a guitarist, Grey released a new single, "I Don't Leave Friends In Darkened Houses", boasting a southwestern feel, and a new live approach, in November of 2012. He quit the Paleface touring band at the end of that year, and returned home.

2013 saw the formation of Grey Revell's Roman Candles, his new group, followed by a tour of Argentina, further productions, notably Indie Songwriter Fountain Penn's "Thermal Static" EP, and a 2013's Winter Single "A Rainbow In His Hometown", released in November.
