We wrap up our week-long tribute to our 5-years of covering music, independently. And it would not be complete without a look back on the time we first found the sounds of the remarkable Sally Grayson and her band, Black Swift. Over the past few years, Grayson has continued her journey through the music and art scenes. Appearing on a popular German TV program and releasing a brilliant new album, 2017’s ‘See Me Human’. She (and her band) have remained a GTC favorite and in celebration of her talents, let’s go back to 2015 when I went 3 Reason Why Sally Grayson’s Black Swift (The World Howls)…a Global Texan Classic.
Sally Grayson’s is Black Swift or vice versa depending on how you interpret 2014’s debut release The World Howls. An intriguing trip down many roads charted and not. The songwriter explores many forms of thoughtful imagery in rock, blues, whimsical, country, theatrical and many places in-between along the 10 tracks.
Where Grayson shines the brightest is in the lingering emotions on tracks “Tragedy Magnet”, title track “The World Howls”‘ and “Dungeon Birth'”. With the weight of these songs being carried at times by a single word or line pulling the listener in with little notice or chance to ignore. The World Howls is a great study on how a debut album should be created which is no surprise with a multifaceted artist such as this.
Here are 3 reasons Why Sally Grayson’s Black Swift.
