The Grayces / Press

““If you have been searching for rock ‘n roll that you can feel in your gut and that sends shivers down your spine, look no further than The Grayces” ~ Vents Magazine”

““The Grayces play freaky, heavy garage rock that you won’t want to stop listening to. Ever.” ~ The Deli Magazine”

"It’s an absolutely huge-sounding band for a three-piece, tailor-made to blast the eardrums of rock club patrons who love in-your-face displays of guitar bravado." ~ Paste Magazine

"Moody, driving rhythms, at times sullen and always deeply submerged in a turbulent pool of reflection, Nashville’s grungy psych-rock trio, The Grayces are making major waves." ~ Culture Collide

““Westing is a chemical reaction of fierce riffs and smoldering passion that could tear down walls.” ~ Vents Magazine”

““Westing” is a strong and unrelenting dose of grunge metal. The Grayces manage to throw it back to eras past while remaining distinctly original. It’s simultaneously hypnotizing and head banging, and should appeal to stoners, surfers and skaters as well as sober and landlocked listeners. With a distinct aesthetic and hooks that hang around for days, the album does the job in less than 45 minutes, proving that The Grayces not only rock hard, but also rock smart.” ~ The Deli Magazine”

"There’s a heavy, new vibe bubbling out of Nashville, blending the classic sounds of psychedelic rock with the heavy rawness of grunge. In the form of a rock trio, this vibe stems from the Grayces." ~ DIFUSSER.FM

““A classic rock style meshed with psychedelic grunge. It is a refreshing new style that will capture your attention.” ~ Music Junkie Press”

““Westing” is a superb example of the new age of underground rock." ~ Joonbug”

““Just when everything starts sounding the same, bands like The Grayces sweep in and bash your ears open with a great take on classic sounds. Dirty grunge riffs meet some psychedelic influences with today's born-to-rock-out trio." ~ D4AM”

"There is a certain swampiness to the rock and roll purveyed in by the Nashville-based the Grayces." ~ Pop Matters

"Each song on this album has something to offer. Whether it is the bass lines, dark lyrics, sultry singing, or masterful guitar playing, if you are a fan of rock music, be sure to check out this album. " ~ Voice Magazine

"Stone and Cantrell were the leather jacket and Ward’s bass line was the zipper that joined them together for a night of kicking some ass." ~ WG News

"Heavy on improvisation and full-to-busting with audio collage – this rock for fans of grunge metal – topped off neatly with a contralto voice that is properly eeky." ~ Raw Ramp

““ Brooding sounds bleed their soul into the atmosphere. Dark, chilling and the trio send cracks of sexual tension through the room like a dominatrix stiletto heel advancing on a stone floor.” ~ Emerging Indie Bands”

““My God, what a band. This band kicks. It’s like Ozzy and Joan spawned a grunge band this is original and ass-kicking at the same time. This is music you want to cruise to, what you listen to when you’re knocking down mailboxes. Not sure what is in the water in Nashville, but this band is great. Ass kicking rock and roll lives on thanks to you, The Grayces.”~ Audio Fuzz”

"The Grayces’s raging inferno sound mixed with insanity driven, haunting haunting vocals rears its ahead again in the video for “Lord and Gods of Alcohol”. The immediate headbanger only serves to further whet appetites." ~ Speak Into My Good Eye

““The Grayces have been bringing a new sound to the legendary stages of Nashville, releasing all-original tunes through a blitz of sounds,” ~ Pens Eye View”

"The Grayces sound like Bleach-era Nirvana with a girl behind the wheel. " ~ No Country For New Nashville

"Unapologetic grunge rock." ~ The Deli Magazine

““Westing” is a strong and unrelenting dose of grunge metal. The Grayces manage to throw it back to eras past while remaining distinctly original. It’s simultaneously hypnotizing and headbanging, and should appeal to stoners, surfers and skaters as well as sober and landlocked listeners. With a distinct aesthetic and hooks that hang around for days, the album does the job in less than 45 minutes, proving that The Grayces not only rock hard, but also rock smart.”

"Nashville ­based, female ­fronted, hard rockers The Grayces are prepping to release their new album this fall to fill your girl-­fronted hard rock void." "On the new record, the Grayces have gotten heavier. The band is more hardcore punk and metal, less sexy blues than The Dead Weather, reflecting their influences from the heavier side of Nirvana and Black Sabbath in their latest single, “Drop in a Bucket.”

"They are heavy and powerful in their execution and ambition, and worth every note. The Grayces consists of the fierce lead vocals and guitar skills of Iz Stone, masterful bass playing from Patrick Ward, and controlled intensity from drummer Chas Cantrell. Together they deliver their own brand of rock and roll that is both appreciative of old school rebellious rock and relevant to the modern listener."

"... the effect was primitive and effective, and this is a band I hope to cross paths with again."

"There’s nothing The Grayces do that doesn’t have an implicit Grayces touch. They’re inherently creative and make the mundane insane. It’s that ever-present creativity matched with their thoughtful and philosophical approach that make them truly unique in a vast Nashville music-scape."

"The Grayces, with an enticing and distinct sound that has a way of inducing your head to move involuntarily, silenced all conversation. Smokers came back inside, the bar staff stopped working to watch—no one was pulling their eyes away from the stage long enough to order drinks anyway. Conversations ended mid-sentence. Unique and catchy, The Grayces’ killer vocals and solid style opened the day off right."

"Lead singer Iz Stone’s ability to go from Pat Benatar to Grace Slick to Joe Strummer and back again in under 3 minutes is astounding..."

““The Grayces rocked everyone's faces off, (not surprisingly), grinding their way through ten energetically raw wailers." "The Grayces truly packed the pizzazz into their performance, and after seeing more of their brilliance through a longer set list, we look forward to listening to their record, and seeing what they will do in the future."”

"... the right mix of nervous energy, camp and pomp on their self-titled debut 7-inch ... the standout track here is 'Yep,' the jumpy guitars and carnival-esque whooping of which recall the late-’70s punk singer Poly Styrene and her backing band X-Ray Spex."
