Biography

The band broke into the local scene with tremendous force in the summer of 2004 and began touring the United States soon after. Composed of four well versed and highly experienced musicians from several other successful bands, Field of Grey knew its goals were attainable in a short amount of time and they set out to accomplish everyone of those goals.

After signing with the indie label Level 3 Records in June 2005, their debut release WARNING, was recorded in November of 2005 and has already shown significant album sales worldwide and a briskly growing fan base as well. The band chose platinum producer Scott Spelbring (Jason Mraz, SR-71, Plunge, and The Speaks) of Dragonfly East Studios to put his magic touch on the record and, in less than a month, the 12 song record was complete after a myriad of 14 to 16 hour day sessions. WARNING was then sent off to Grammy winner Jay Frigoletto (Shinedown, Oasis, INXS) for mastering and is currently being pushed to radio by Randy Sadd (The Black Crowes, Josh Joplin Group, Shawn Mullins, Tag Team) of Protocol Entertainment. Randy's push and the rabid fanbase have already garnered Warning as album of the week on St Louis' own KSHE 95 and American Beauty has been charting on major FM stations nationwide as well as XM and Sirius Sattellite radio.
Warning features guest drummer Kevin Murphy (Tonic, Sheryl Crowe, Jimmie's Chicken Shack) on several of the album's tracks.

The band's ever growing and dedicated fan base has become such an integral part of the band's repertoire that a drink was created by a fan and dubbed The American Beauty in honor of their first release. American Beauty, the drink and first release have already infected numerous venues throughout the country. The band's philosophy on fans, "We don’t have fans, we have friends all over the world who just happen to like our music" has proven to be a formula for success in such that the members are in constant contact with the fans through their websites and Instant Messages. This ritual has lead to a loyalty unseen in a band of this degree. Fans are known to drive from as far as four states away to catch Field of Grey live.

One listen to any of the tracks on the record WARNING and the energy and emotion that was poured into the making of it, will command your attention, not only with masterful song arrangements but clever lyrics that speak clearly to the soul. After hearing WARNING you WILL want to own a piece of Field of Grey and catch up to the band on tour. The band is most notably known for its live shows that are a reminiscent of stadium rock acts of the past, oozing with raw energy.

Lyrics

American Beauty

Written By: Chris "Blackie" Starks

I wanna ride on a love rocket
Mmm, till the ocean looks like a teaspoonful
I want an unloaded gun and cock it
Till the look on your face tells me I'm not dull

I wanna hide away on another planet,
where no one can phone in my grief
Ahhh my daily dose of physical beauty,
my american beauty

Tell me do you tire of television
Predicting what you'll wear next year
Tell me do you tire of American beauty
Telling you what to feel in here

I'm tired of ridin on a roller coaster, I keep fallin off the track
It wouldn't matter if it wasn't so far, just to get a little back
Sometimes I leave the earth and then I'm happy
and then I run out of fuel
Fallin down I relive the same mistakes, in my American beauty

Tell me do you tire of population
Predicting what you'll hear next year
Tell me do you tire of American beauty
Telling you what to feel in here

They have control, they have control, they have control
Tell me who the fuck are they

Tell me do you tire of television
Predicting what you'll wear next year
Tell me do you tire of American beauty
Telling you what to feel in here

Tell me do you tire of population
Predicting what you'll hear next year
Tell me do you tire of American beauty
Telling you what to feel in here

They have control, they have control, they have control
Tell me who the fuck are they

Alone, Undone, and Unaware

Written By: Chris "Blackie" Starks

What have we become
What have we left undone
How did we get this far
The legacy that we've left our sons

What is the price they'll pay
Now we've taken hope away
how did we choose to ignore
All of their dreams all washed away

And I can't undo this alone
And don't act like you care
And I can't bring the blind to see
And don't act like you aren't aware

I am the blind leading the lost
and I can't find my way
I am thirsting at all cost
the starving are all they

I am hopeless for answers
the pages are all empty
and I am fearing consequences
we refuse to see

And I can't undo this alone
And don't act like you care
And I can't bring the blind to see
And don't act like you aren't aware

...Alone
undone
you leave me
unaware unaware...

And I can't undo this alone
And don't act like you care
And I can't bring the blind to see
And don't act like you aren't aware
And I can't undo this alone
And don't act like you care
And I can't bring the blind to see
And don't act like you aren't aware

What is the price they'll pay
Why have we taken it all away
Alone, undone, and unaware

Written By: Chris "Blackie" Starks

Drivin, down the freeway
Lookin in my rearview mirror
Thrivin, on words that she said
Lookin for answers anywhere

But I can't seem to find
Why I've wasted time
Her words invade my mind
Over and over again

Laughin, like we used to
What was the last thing that she said
Thick skinned, I guess I'll have to be
What was the last thing that we did

But I can't seem to find
Why I've wasted time
Her words invade my mind
Over and Over again

Why…

Her name, I can't remember
A fleeting moment I know will pass
Her face, I can't forget her
Forever in my mind will last

But I can't seem to find
Why I've wasted time
Her words invade my mind
But I can't seem to find
Why I've wasted time
Her words invade my mind

Over and over again
