Monday: Grey Joy – We Were Happy Once
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.
