we are all a part of the grand shell game. these are just some players. historians. scribes, if not for our age, then at least for their times. they sing songs of love and loss. of failure and resulting growth. of conflict and resolution, and conflicting resolutions. they borrow textures and tones from the past. they blend elements of style towards a new future. their accounting is playful and dynamic. rocking in a waltz and swaying as they roll. there is power in their arrangements. rooted in the structure of the song, yet each is given the opportunity to shine in the light of their talents. the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. this is a band. the connection is undeniable.

we are all a part of the grand shell game. these are just some players. historians. scribes, if not for our age, then at least for their times. they sing songs of love and loss. of failure and resulting growth. of conflict and resolution, and conflicting resolutions. they borrow textures and tones from the past. they blend elements of style towards a new future. their accounting is playful and dynamic. rocking in a waltz and swaying as they roll. there is power in their arrangements. rooted in the structure of the song, yet each is given the opportunity to shine in the light of their talents. the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. this is a band. the connection is undeniable.
the sound has been called “cosmic roots-rock”, “prog-Americana”, “folk-core”, and sometimes just good old rock and roll. the songs are deceptively simple yet contain an elegant complexity. danceable, even in odd times. singable, even as the melodies challenge and bend. thoughtful, even when the whole of a tune fits on a fortune cookie slip. there is a familiarity in the music, but it is clearly different. surprising. then the next song begins. the experience is revisited from a different angle. the theme is one of love, in all its forms. it speaks to a belief in each other. it champions the potential found in all of us. it celebrates life….

the grand shell game celebrates life.
