The Grain

The Grain


Railroad Earth meets The Doobie Brothers. "The Grain's" arrangements, and musical abilities are reminiscent of the 1970s style music many of us love.


The Grain's old school heart went Frankenstein during a warm February evening in 2005 when there was a spike in the pulse. Two Musical Lifers found themselves in the company of greats and brewing up some very rare grooves.
Based out of The Wilkes Barre Valley of Pennsylvania This Band finds itself un-defined and immerging strong from the stage at The Nationally Acclaimed River Street Jazz Café. Following in the footsteps of great musicians like Leon Russell, Dickie Betts, George Wesley, The Recipe and many others that have graced the infamous stage at River Street. The Grain released its self-titled debut album in June 2005 and gained quick recognition on the radio and the music scene for there hit Guster Baines. Currently the band is scheduling shows, recording their second album and playing new songs for the summer festivals. One thing this band does not lack is material or energy. Joe said "we tell autobiographical stories and make sure our music is woven carefully within the song. John Scofield, All Green, Hendrix, Jim Croce and many others have influenced us. We like to be remembered for following our souls and leaving a smile".
