The Grays

The Grays were a short-lived rock band comprising singer/songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Jon Brion, Jason Falkner, Buddy Judge, and Dan McCarroll. They released only one album, the out-of-print but highly regarded Ro Sham Bo (1994) on Sony/Epic Records.

Their musical style featured careful composition married with pop-friendly melodies influenced by The Beatles but with a harder edge. Their songs also contained musical surprises such as atonal harmonies ("Is it Now Yet"), backwards vocals ("Everybody's World"), and dissonant ukulele-like solos ("Oh Well Maybe") mixed in with traditional rock instrumentation.
