"This is a band that has their own staying power."
- Pulse of the Twin Cities

"Room For Gray @ the Garage"

“Room For Gray combines unique song structure with an exceptionally polished stage presence to craft an attractive and filling sound.” - The Voice - Burnsville, MN

"Warm & Cozy"

Room for Gray proves there is room for "Pop Rock" in this world. Pop haters beware. These guys redefine pop and shove it right in your face. This Tool meets the Goo Goo Dolls (back when they were cool, of course) is full of melodic and almost heavy metal sounding riffs and chords that will confuse the hell out of you, yet make you feel all warm and cozy inside. - Midwest Music Factory

"Watch Out Daughtry"

“Watch out, Daughtry: Hard-working hard-rock quartet Room for Gray, effectively channels Bon Jovi, Matchbox 20 and other lovelorn but manly hitmakers on its fourth disc, "The Next Step.” - Chris Riemenschneider - Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Raise Your Lighters"

“...they're also more likely than most to find success beyond the Twin Cities. They play straightforward, radio-friendly rock akin to Matchbox 20 and the Fray, and they've just put out their fourth album, "The Next Step," which is filled with riff-heavy rockers and a few slower tracks begging for the lighters-aloft treatment. ” - Ross Raihala - St. Paul Pioneer Press

"The Next Step"

Room For Gray are a fairly good-lookin’ bunch of guys, but, no offense intended, just don’t stack up against Spears in the I-can-make-a-career-out-of-being-eye-candy department. They do, however, got chops.

Room For Gray play hard-edged soft-rock with several of the surest hands around. Luck, desire, and commitment get an able assist from solid songwriting, effective vocals, and most capable musicianship. - Dwight Hobbes - Twin Cities Daily Planet

Anyone in the music industry knows that success is contingent on a bit of luck, but luck is useless without a burning desire to win and a relentless work ethic to back it up. Failure is not an option for Room For Gray. Hailing from Minneapolis, MN James Gray (lead vocals, guitar), Jared Hedberg (bass, backing vocals), and Stephen J (drums/percussion) have endured 7 years together electrifying audiences across the Midwest. Fueled with pop-rock energy and claiming influences such as Bon Jovi, Matchbox 20, and U2, Room For Gray continues to expand its fan base through the power of grass roots support. As a testament to this progress, the band earned a spot as a top 10 finalist in the 2007 Spin Magazine Hot Pursuit nationwide contest.

To date, Room For Gray has sold over 5,000 records independently and has just celebrated the official release of its 4th album entitled, “The Next Step” (February 2009). This new record, produced and recorded by World Record Productions (Quietdrive, Dropping Daylight), helps convey RFG’s mission. “Our goal has always been to write and record hook-ridden pop rock songs that you will either love or hate,” explains James Gray. “Over the years, through experience and continuously studying our influences, we have finally honed in on our musical identity. I believe this record really represents us in the truest sense.”

Refusing to leave any stone unturned, Room For Gray continues to draw attention from industry executives. Those such as producers James Harley (Grammy Award winner) and Jeremy Tappero of World Record Productions, seven-time Grammy Award winning producer Andre Fischer (MCA Records), and former staff writer Jeff Harrington (Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records) have all given their stamp of approval. NBC’s Kare 11 news anchor Belinda Jensen referred to Room For Gray as a “red-hot band.” Through various media outlets such as radio, live TV (NBC, CBS), and featured segments on MTV’s The Real World, the band is reaching a mass audience. Armed with a powerful new album, support from its legion of devoted fans, and a renewed spirit, Room For Gray is truly on to “The Next Step.”
