Tuesday: Grey Joy – Lilith
In October of 2017, the Alt-synth-pop, New wave inspired, five piece act Grey Joy of Phoenix, Arizona was born. Singer Avidan “Wolf” Santana and Guitarist; Alexander Philip began to write the bones of their music in a small art space located in the heart of the Downtown district. Soon there after, the song-writing tandem brought on the efforts of Cameron Clark (Synth/keys), Nathaniel Tappy (Bass) and Justin Lucio (Drums). Grey Joy began recording with local great Cory Spotts who’s most notable credits are bands such as: The Maine, The Summer Set, Lydia and Bless The Fall. In due time the group became a collective, sharing creativity transforming the five into one idea. The days become Seconds as these strangers become family, chipping away at a record in hopes to make the listener just as much a part of that. Check out Grey Joy on Facebook and Instagram then preview their song “Lilith” below. If ya dig it, vote to hear it again for Song of the Week at the bottom of the page.
Wednesday: Doll Skin – Daughter
If life was a comic book, Doll Skin would be right at home in the larger than life color pages. Four Glitter-fueled, teenage, punk rock superheroes, wielding mighty guitars, as they battle tyranny and oppression with adrenaline-fueled rock anthems. Shortly after forming in 2013, when members Vocalist Sydney Dolezal, Guitarist Alex Snowden, Bassist Nicole Rich, and Drummer Meghan Herring met at the Phoenix SCHOOL OF ROCK, the fledgling band came to the attention of Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson, who took them under his wing, and together they began a sonic assault on the West Coast, playing shows with Social Distortion, Green Jello, DRI, SLUNT, and many more, and set out to work on their Ellefson produced debut studio release.
2015 saw the Worldwide release of Doll Skin’s debut EP In Your Face, through Ellefson’s own imprint EMP – Ellefson Music Productions, distributed Megaforce Records, (also known as the launching pad for legendary big 4 thrash bands Metallica and Anthrax and many more.) and Cargo Records in Europe, and set Doll Skin on a trajectory straight to the ranks of the Hard Rock elite.
Says David, “When I was first introduced to Doll Skin, I knew there was something really special there. Through working with them as a Producer, it became even more apparent what these girls were capable of.”
Catch Doll Skin at Trunk Space with Playboy Manbaby Saturday, November 10th and on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube. Preview their song “Daughter” below, then give em your love votes at the bottom of the page for Song of the Week!
