Similar to upcoming artists Thrice and Taking Back Sunday, fear of grey's brand of modern rock is harsh, aggressive, and sometimes desperate, but always passionate.

Biography

Fear of Grey was formed in June of 2000, founded by members Matt Rowley, Brad Crouse, and Adam Osmianski. After many line up changes, the band’s line up was set with Matt Rowley on lead vocals and guitar, Jason Krivanek supplying the bass lines and backing vocals, Brad Crouse on guitar, and Adam Osmianski behind the drum kit. With personal influences ranging from jazz, progressive rock, indie, and mainstream rock, Fear of Grey worked on bringing together their hard-hitting melodic rock sound and wasted no time making their foray into the Pittsburgh music scene. Playing in venues around the Pittsburgh area such as: Nick’s Fat City, Rex Theater and the American Music Café, as well as winning a 64-band battle of the bands, helped them to gain a local following. Fear of Grey is no stranger to playing with the local acts, they’ve played with such bands as Mercury, Brownie Mary, and 7th House, as well as with Solid-State recording artist Beloved.
Along the way in 2001, the band teamed with 30-year recording veteran Dave Hayden, whose credits include production for Salt-n-Peppa among others, to record and produce their debut EP, entitled Support. The EP helped garner local airplay on 105.9 The X and enabled them to play festivals such as the Coors Light South Side Summer Street Spectacular and festivals and radio shows at Slippery Rock University, University of Pittsburgh, and Penn State University. Fear of Grey has also performed at numerous charity and benefit shows, including three consecutive years playing for the Make-A-Wish foundation at Nick’s Fat City, and a benefit for the American Red Cross to raise money for the families of victims in the 9/11 attacks.
With the previous experience under their belts, they sky is the limit for this up-and-coming rock band from Pittsburgh. With a new manager in place, the band is currently working on their follow up record and are eager to move forward towards expanding their audience, sound, and to playing their own brand of melodic hard-hitting music in a venue near you.
