"Strong Bones and Teeth" EP - Released 05/06

"City Parks After Dark" - Full Length Album due March 2008



After 2 years as a group with a multitude of contributors, just under 100 live shows, and a new full-length record on the horizon, Grey Milk is more ready than ever to kick things into full gear. 2006 saw the birth of Grey Milk with a debut EP entitled "Strong Bones and Teeth" and an array of shows all across the Eastern US in support of their first effort. 2007 proved to be a year of learning, growth and adaptation, as the fluid group of members expanded to collaborate on their upcoming full-length album and tested the waters with many new friends, writing music and performing all around the Eastern United States.

What has seemed a quiet period for the band in the past few months has actually been a time of intense preparation. 2008 will finally see the release of their new album, "City Parks After Dark" on Nobody's Favorite Records. With it will come a barrage of New England Shows as well as a more than three-week tour, covering their tracks of the past two years. Thereafter, Grey Milk will be in every place they can, in their many forms, from unplugged to boomingly loud, from street corner to living room to cafe to bar to venue to treehouse. Grey Milk will happily appear anywhere.

Now primarily the work of Jesse Houle and Sean Watson, with many others rotating appearnces live, the band is setting up to be constantly active in the upcoming year upon their new album's release vigorously booking dates around the country and at home in New England. Known for their high energy and positive attitude, Grey Milk takes to the stage with a dire urgency not matched by many acts of the day- especially those with an acoustic aesthetic. They are known to play in any setting in many forms, and just as their lineup varies from show to show, so can their sound. Ranging from stripped down "skim" performances to large scale exhibitions mirroring their recording effort of over 10 contributors; their show is refreshingly unpredictable and formidable for virtually any setting.

When it comes to the music itself, their sound is as varied as it is unique. With ample vocal harmonizing, intricate interactions between instruments, group participation and an undeniable intensity, their songs constantly take new form with each new setting. Stylistically Grey Milk songs are anything but static. The guitar whispers and the vocals serenade as often as the drums pound and chords rumble. Wondefully blended vocal harmonies, smooth bass lines, and tastfully added melodies from an array of instruments layer songs to a not overwhelming but satisfying completeness. Songs reach cathartic peaks from withering valleys, although never losing focus on a keen sense of humor and humility.

Lyrically, Houle focuses on both the personal and the global, the philosophical and the empirical. Fluently blending emotion with intellectualism, his songs are constantly earnest, their message relatable and altruistic, maintaining a balance of melancholy and lightheartedness. His and the band’s persistence, energy and life-affirming attitude on stage and in person, regardless of the setting, continues to win over the minds and souls of people wherever they travel making clear one thing; Grey Milk will be moving forward and with full steam for a long time to come.
