ROOTS rock n roll outfit The Grape And The Grain released their self-titled album at the end of last year.
The New York band was started by 3 guitarist Daniel Grimsland as a solo project in 2012, releasing a short album and recruiting pals to help him continue - blooming into the present band.
He told RealSoundsOK: "We are all writers and multi-instrumentalists. Having grown up together, we have a pretty good understanding of where each of us is trying to go musically and all that makes for a very easy, open and inviting writing process."
The self-produced album was recorded at Applehead Studio and was mixed by Chris Bittner and Michael Birnbaum, whose work includes Coheed and Cambria, Bad Brains, Weerd Science and Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes.
Grimsland added: "I think this year is about getting on the road and getting our record out there. We love to play live and we want to do that as much as we can. We have also begun writing new material, so we may even get back in the studio in 2015."
The Grape And The Grain can be purchased from iTunes and Bandcamp and you can also have a listen below.
