Anything else we should know, or you want to share: the Grey A is a DC based band and artist who’s first album My Country is a Politi-pop opera, sounding off with ballads of truth about income inequality, a rigged election system and the climate change to come. From the song Dumb Fool to the track Unusual As Usual, the Grey A touches on issues from science to sin. Recorded in Nashville and packed with some of the catchiest hooks you’ve heard in years, the record has been well received by both NPR and No Depression. The band is the brainchild of songwriter and Texas native Grey Jacks, who is best known for his work on three full length albums with the Nashville indie-rock band Glossary. My Country features recording artist William Tyler on lead guitar, as well as many other well known Tennessee talents.
