"Elements of Style"

Elements of Style started out as a solo project from former Atlanta band Suburban Soul’s lead guitarist Gram Wire. After leaving Suburban Soul in late 2010, Wire began writing an 11 song full length album containing multiple genres which would later become Elements of Style’s debut album “Waves”.

The album was engineered at Virtuo Sound Studios with owner and head engineer Josh Hack and performed with Grammy award winning drummer of the Derek Trucks band Yonrico Scott and Grammy nominated bassist Joseph Patrick Moore and released independently on April 24th, 2012.

After tracking was finished and the album was mastered by legendary engineer Rodney Mills (.38 Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rage Against The Machine), Wire decided the project needed to be a full group instead of a solo project.
He enlisted numerous musicians that entered and left the band, until finding the very professional current lineup of drummer and percussionist David Goodwin, bassist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Greene Ball from Wire’s Suburban Soul days and front-man and MC Zach Fortner (A.K.A Zach Fortnight).

The group’s large, diverse hip hop influences of artists like Rage Against the Machine, Sublime, Nirvana, 2 Chainz, T.I. and Big K.R.I.T. come out in songs like “ATLtude” and “Feelin’ That Music”, which are augmented by intense, high energy performances at live shows. They are currently in the studio recording their 11-song sophomore follow up to “Waves”. - Niji Magazine

"CD Universe"

Elements Of Style discography Elements of Style's debut record was recorded at Virtuo Sound Studio in Canton, Georgia featuring Grammy nominated jazz bassist Joseph Patrick Moore and Grammy award winning drummer of The Derek Trucks Band Yonrico Scott. Mastered by legendary engineer Rodney Mills and featuring guest appearances from such artists as Zach Fortnight, Jaymi Renae and VFloyd, this auspicious debut album from one of Atlanta's hardest rocking bands has been featured in Relix Magazine and gotten radio airplay around the country. - CD Universe


"Get In and Lift Off with Elements of Style"

"Do you think that if Sublime, Ben Folds Five and some alien band hailing from Keplar 186F had a love child, that it would be pretty? Well, whatever it looks like, I imagine it would sound like Elements of Style. All comparisons aside, what these chill-funk quadruplets bring to the table is something a bit extra-terrestrial."

Bio

"Elements of Style wants to address post-modern dilemmas in an increasingly dystopian American culture with an incredibly diverse display of musical genres. We see creativity as stagnate in today's mainstream music culture and believe in inventing new sounds with an important message of truth in an ever-growing deceptive world." -Gram Wire

Elements of Style started out as a solo project from former Atlanta band Suburban Soul's lead guitarist Gram Wire. After leaving Suburban Soul in late 2010, Wire began writing an 11 song full length album containing multiple genres which would later become Elements of Style's debut album "Waves". The album was engineered at Virtuo Sound Studios with owner and head engineer Josh Hack and performed with Grammy award winning drummer of the Derek Trucks band Yonrico Scott and Grammy nominated bassist Joseph Patrick Moore and released independently on April 24th, 2012. 
After tracking was finished and the album was mastered by legendary engineer Rodney Mills (.38 Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rage Against The Machine), Wire decided the project needed to be a full group instead of a solo project. He enlisted numerous musicians that entered and left the band, until finding the very professional current lineup of drummer and percussionist David B. Goodwin, bassist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Greene Ball from Wire's Suburban Soul days and front-man and MC Zach Fortner (A.K.A Zach Fortnight). The group's large, diverse influences of artists like Rage Against the Machine, Sublime, Nirvana, Minutemen, The Ramones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Queens of the Stone Age, Gorillaz, MGMT, Love and Rockets and Bauhaus, Immortal Technique, KRS One, 2 Chainz, Run the Jewels and Big K.R.I.T. (to name a small portion of the band's favorites) come out in alternative based, hip hop fueled songs like "Stand the Fuck Up" and "Feelin' That Music" and their live performances as a group in the Atlanta area stand out as being intense, creative, and high energy. 

Elements of Style is currently in the studio recording their 11-song sophomore follow up to "Waves". 
"We are witnessing the album, as it appears in the media, dying as an art form and single song streaming becoming the dominate force in how people consume music," states Wire. "It's mainly because of the one hit song then crap filler formula of making albums the corporate music industry has taken on doing lately. We completely disagree with this because as Prince says "Albums matter," and we think album streaming on sites like Spotify, if the album is actually done well, will be the future. Adele's "21" or Jack White's "Lazaretto" are perfect examples of excellent modern day albums that true music fans stream constantly or even purchase the vinyl versions of and listen to. Learn how to write or get a great writer and make a great album. You'll be better off obviously."
