Almost ten years in the making, Gridline continues to captivate audiences with their high-octane blend of funk, soul, and rock and roll. Soul Brew, their full-length debut album released in 2017, is a culminating snapshot of a live band in motion. The eight original songs on the record developed over years of performing late night sets as the house band of NYC’s historic club, The Bitter End. The album also features notable contributions from established members of the extended Gridline family, including vocalist Corey Glover (Living Colour), Kim Miller (The Skatalites), Joel Thome (Frank Zappa), Mike Soprano (Streetlight Manifesto), and the Scorchio Quartet (David Bowie).
Featured in Relix Magazine as up-and-coming artists, the band has been internationally recognized as something of a rarity in today’s music scene. With members of varying ages and experiences, each musician contributes to a diverse sound that is equal parts energetic and refined. The band has opened for artists such as Iggy Azalea, Galactic, Max Creek, Kung Fu, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, and The Nigel Hall Band, and continues to set their sights higher and higher. Stay tuned for 2022 tour dates, new music, and more announcements to follow!
