Atlanta-based indie-alt-folk group, vonGrey, will perform at the Gem Theatre in Calhoun, Ga., on Thursday, at 7 p.m. The group’s return appearance is sponsored in partnership with the Fox Theatre Institute.
The four talented and classically-trained sisters, labeled an “American Masterpiece” by the media, have appeared on David Letterman, Conan, NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams, and CNN’s Road Warriors, and were praised by “Billboard” for their “crystalline harmonies, stirring lyrics, and inventive melodies.”
The group has opened for Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan, Lindsey Stirling, Rusted Root, and Company of Thieves, and performed standout sets at SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Gathering of the Vibes Music Festivals. Their self-titled EP shot into the iTunes Top 10 following their memorable Conan performance, and they accomplished all this without the help of a record label before their 20th birthdays.
vonGrey is comprised of co-lead singer/songwriters Annika (violin, banjo, guitar, keys) and Fiona (guitar, violin, percussion); Petra (keys, lap steel guitar, background vocals), and Kathryn (cello, bass, mandolin, and background vocals.) They evolved significantly with their new six-song EP “Awakening,” branching into musical forms of self-expression that are a little more experimental in nature, beautifully blending the acoustic world with a more modern electronic feel. “Awakening,” which features the infectious first single, “Come On,” will be released independently early this year.
Observed the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “…see them now, because a few years down the road, you might have to pay big bucks for nosebleed seats in an arena to catch these talented musicians.”
Advance tickets range from $5 to $12, but prices will be higher if purchased at the door. For more information, call the theatre at 706-625-3132 or visit the website at www.calhoungem.org.
