Biography

The Grayscale story begins with Douglas Dunbar finding William Weaver through the murky soup of the Internet, discovering that both the songwriting musicians shared not only the same geography of Cleveland, Ohio, but a passion for alternative pop as well. They also found that they shared influences ranging from Cold Play, to Snow Patrol, to The Cure. They began collaborating and formed Grayscale in early 2005. They rapidly assembled a catalog of alternapop gems that would become their debut album, That Flawless Flashing Day. Effortlessly fusing American folk with Britpop, their combined talents generate music that impressionistically explores the lush and beautiful landscape of human emotions.

Douglas Dunbar hails from Los Angeles where he began in the 90s as a singer/songwriter solo artist, recording and performing his compositions in the live showcase circuit in Hollywood and the Sunset Strip. Douglas recorded and performed with the support of veteran musicians including keyboardist Bruce Lowe (Stevie Wonder/Kenny Loggins/Elton John) and drummer Chet McCracken (The Doobie Brothers/Stevie Nicks/Kim Carnes). Destiny brought him to Cleveland where he was eventually able to hook-up with William Weaver who had the perfect compliment of talents that enabled them to craft the musical alchemy that is Grayscale.

Prior to meeting up with Douglas, William Weaver also spent time on the West Coast and was trained in film and television production. He has worked professionally in the visual and audio media, writing music for Indie movie scores, radio and television commercials, Spanish television programs, music libraries, and independent record releases. In addition to his independent instrumental project Ruah, William has written and performed with a several musical groups, including Garden of Dreams (Seraph Records), and The Firmary (Approaching Storm Records), as well as producing two stand-out tracks for up-and-coming Asian-fusion pop artist Aasha.

Shortly after its completion in August 2006, TFFD was signed by Angel Alamo and Don Lichterman of Alamo Records/Sunset Records Group (www.alamo-records.com, www.sunsetholding.com) and released worldwide by them on May 20th, 2007. Their music is in rotation on WDYN Radio (100.1FM Rochester, NY, www.wdyn.net, worldwide), iChannel Internet Radio (www.ichannelmusic.com), Brainwave Radio/Indie Artist Radio (www.brainwaveradio.com), among many others.
