Bio

Pure Grain is the commercial hard rock band the millennium has been screaming for. In just a few months, Pure Grain has become the hottest group in West Virginia. Pure Grain has played with beneath the sky KITTIE,IN THIS MOMENT,wednesday13, Bobaflex, Byzantine,Full blown chaos, LA Guns, Mushroomhead, Soil, Sworn Enemy, and Diecast. Pure Grain has headlined huge shows as the Charleston, stern-wheel Regatta and Kanawhapalooza. Pure Grain is one of the few acts to play at the Huntington Music Hall. Without major record company support. Pure Grain will soon release their debut album on their own label. They provide an outstanding live show which excites, stimulates and moves the audience. Pure Grain is as exciting to watch as they are to listen to Pure Grain is four gifted artists doing what they do best making timeless music. Jason Morris, on bass guitar and vocals, at 26, has made a lasting impression on the West Virginia music scene with his stage presence, and original bass lines. Jason is an exceptional songwriter, heavily influenced by Megadeth and Iron Maiden, and is the inspiration behind much of Pure Grain..s music. Dave Miller, at 27, maybe Valley Grove,s greatest claim to fame. Dave,s unique emotional guitar playing combines fast sound with great showmanship. Dave assists on vocals, and his songwriting ability is a perfect blend with Jason,s. Together they create most of what is Pure Grain. Brian Moles, age 26, on drums, is high energy personified when Brian picks up a stick no one sits still. Whether he is playing sticks, drums, cymbals, gongs, cow bells, or wood blocks, Brian..s ability and showmanship is unequal. He is another important component uniquely contributing to Pure Grain. Nathan Hudson, shaved head, 26, lead vocalist and writer. Will have the girl..s hearts throbbing. Nathan commands the stage and his every move are watched intensely. Nathan..s unique styling and versatile range were influenced by Phil Anselmo and Ronnie Van Zant. He is the final piece creating the band Pure Grain. When Jason, Dave, Brian, and Nathan, came together the magic was instantaneous and Pure Grain was born. The creative genius of these four performers has brought fourth a new music that will not soon be forgotten. There music and showmanship are anew driving force and rock. The themes which run through their songs involve the audience and a musical reality of day to day living expressing joys and tragedies to which today.. youth can relate. Pure Grain is what the youth of the millennium has been waiting for- the sound to move to, the words that speak, and the look heroes are made of. Pure Grain is not a rebellion but a revolution in rock. A return to the hard-driving sound of the Beatles reenergized for the millennium.
