Gravel Switch might be the name of a Kentucky town, but it’s also a perfectly suited name for the band that Seth Wade (Lead Vocals), Josh Pierce (Guitar/Vocals), Harlyn Richardson (Guitar), Matt Vanhook (Bass), and Johnny Hodge (Drums) have put together. Between the heavy riffs and the crashing cymbals, Gravel Switch has a sound that feels familiar yet aggressively fresh at the same time. After the December 2012 release of “Face The Day”, the band is moving a step closer to launching their music into a mainstream rock sound that is ready for the airwaves.
Some bands have been around forever and for some reason the stars just don’t align right for me to get to see them. Gravel Switch has been one of those bands for me. Their reputation for powerful, straight-forward, down and dirty rock-and-roll is always a draw for me, so I’ve wanted to see them for a good long while. Having done so I can now verify their reputation is no rumor. They pretty much have it all. Good tunes, great vocals, high energy, awesome stage presence, and lots of movement both on and off the stage. Yes, they like to get down with the audience and play amongst the crowd. You’ll see some great posturing up on the stage, and many Kodak moments (does anyone remember Kodak?) when the boys hoist their guitars up high, do the stance, and switch places from side to side.
