GREYE Windows

 

It has been quite a while since we have covered an Americana collective, but we recently discovered some sweet sounds from GREYE, a Florida-based Progressive Americana Rock Band. GREYE just released their latest project “Windows” and the band’s lead single of the same title currently has the global music-sphere lit.

Released in July, “Windows” is a polished performance with a blistering down-home feel. The song, which carriers a laid-back vibe is driven by a distinct score which consists of addicting guitar riffs, robust bass rhythms, catching percussion and a luscious vocal performance. “Windows” is the quintessential fusion between some of America’s most popular genres with a distinctly modern feel. GREYE gives a flawless performance and production on the single is among the cleanest we’ve ever experienced from an indie band.

GREYE offers music lovers a rich listening experience which not only includes alluring vocals and professional musicianship, but also an opportunity to experience thought-provoking songwriting content which is often difficult to come by in the mainstream. “Windows” is a performance that can be appreciated from various perspectives regardless of your music preferences and most of all, it is a great song and easy to absorb.

GREYE is a refreshing introduction to neophytes of Americana who have not yet had the opportunity to experience its nuances, while Gen X-ers will gravitate towards the progressive sounds that defined the 90s, reflecting back on music’s evolution. Millennials just now stumbling upon bands like Pearl Jam, will marvel at the sounds of real music, and those that relish in the conventions of The Allman Brothers Band will give a nod to the deeply rooted influences heard in GREYE’s release.

Listen to GREYE “Windows” on Soundcloud.

Based in Daytona, Florida, GREYE consists of band members Hannah Summer (vocals) Jett Wolfe (guitar), Joshua Reid (bass), Ray Grimard (drums). The band got its start in 2012 and has since performed at both local and national venues.

In 2014, GREYE released their debut album ‘Providence’. Following the success of ‘Providence’, the band released the full-length LP’s ‘The Tube’ and ‘The Worrier’ in 2015 and 2016 respectively. GREYE members cite a number of musical influences ranging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to John Butler Trio, YES and many others. Jon Allred of “Indie Music Lives Here of Portland” stated, “…forget 50 shades, one does of GREYE is all you need at the end of the day to unwind and lose yourself to a music masterpiece…”

Having been praised for their work ethic and in receipt of numerous accolades, the band has definitely made its mark on music since its original inception. GREYE was highlighted at the 2015 BMI Key West Songwriters Festival and vocalist Hannah Summer was selected as Songwriter of the Year at the Songwriters Showcase of America 2014-2015.

The APX

The APX

If you happen to be in need of a good electronic music fix, then The APX, an Atlanta-based duo is ready to deliver with the release of their recent production “Capture The Moment”.  The multi-faceted song is the quintessential blend of infectious rhythms, playful melodies and lush vocals. Without a doubt you will not want to “let this one pass you by” as the song’s lyrics suggest. “Capture The Moment” is fun, inspiring and refreshingly uplifting.

“Capture The Moment” is robust with highly synthesized electronic elements, funky guitar riffs, rolling drums and intoxicating bass rhythms. The track is a dynamic expression of various electronic genres with a dash of soul. While the songwriting is catchy and uncomplicated, the vocals are executed in a peerless manner. The music consists of complex layers, sweeping transitions and cascading waves of modern sound.

What is most fascinating about The APX? The talented duo fuses together elements of the past with styles of the present to deliver a remarkably flawless performance. There are moments during the song that are reminiscent to 80s freestyle and performers such as Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, Starpoint, and many others. “Capture The Moment” is the type of song that crosses generational boundaries and outlasts the ages because it is simply that timeless.

Whether you fancy Synthpop, Funk, Disco, or Deep House grooves, you will fully embrace the sounds of The APX and their latest release “Capture The Moment”. If two worlds were to collide, The APX might fall somewhere between Tiesto and Daft Punk, however the collective has created their own unique sound that won’t soon be duplicated.

The APX Capture The Moment

Husband and wife duo Dee Rhodes and Erika Rhodes put together an electronic alter-ego project now known as The APX. Though the collaboration is a new undertaking for the pair, neither artist is a stranger to the music industry. The APX went into launch mode following the culmination of a successful private event band known as “The After Party Experience”.

Artist Insights

Before The APX, power couple Dee and Erika Rhodes were leaving their mark on the industry. Erika performed at Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration and opened up for pop icon Mariah Carey. Having shared the stage with greats such as Pat Benatar, Floetry, and Diana Ross, Erika Rhodes is known for having a versatile vocal range and diverse repertoire crossing over several genres ranging from rock to R&B.

Dee is also an established musician that has performed on the popular shows such as ‘Being Mary Jane’ and ‘Single Ladies’. Dee performed for industry legend Stevie Wonder and celebrities such as Vivica Fox and Usher at the young age of 12. Gaining industry experience as a live music promoter in Atlanta, Dee has put his skills to work in booking concert tours for The APX.

The group released “Capture The Moment” initially to “test the waters”. Since the song release in January 2016, the team has expanded on their breadth and zoned in on refining their distinct sound which is a fusion of Nu Disco, Electro Funk and Synthwave. The APX hopes to take a myriad of influences including 80s music and “fuse them into a new era” according to the band. The duo accomplishes this by incorporating a 50/50 split of DJs and producers and live performers much like Chromeo, Capital Cities, and others.

The APX recently remixed several of their live performances to illustrate what fans might expect at a live show. Live performance videos have been a source of success for the creative project, having allowed the group to grow their fan base exponentially while receiving kudos from world-renowned artists such as Teddy Riley, Dave 1 of Chromeo, Alex Frankel of Holy Ghost, Nick Littlemore, Empire of the Sun, Dam Funk, Native Instruments and many others. Dee and Erika describes The APX sound as “creating a galactic funky atmosphere using synths, sax, and vocals”.

The APX is set to release another single titled “Lose Yourself to the Groove” on April 28th, 2017 and the groups debut EP will be released on May 22nd, 2017.
