Following on the success of singles “Give It a Name” and “Angel Wings,” The Graysmiths are set for two 2016 tours through the American Southeast, Texas, and Oklahoma with a new line-up of band members.
The 2016 Graysmiths line-up features Gray on guitar and vocals backed by Katarina Pejak on keyboards and keys-bass, Slaven Ljujic on drums, and Rachel McCann on keys and vocals. Pejak is a Berklee College of Music graduate, well known in her native Serbia as a talented singer-songwriter and performer with two albums, Perfume & Luck and First Hand Stories, and a solid performance history in both Europe and America. Ljujic is a fresh Berklee graduate with outsized chops and performance experience in his native Montenegro and the U.S, including a history of collaborations with notable U.S. vocalists such as Vinx and Larry Watson. McCann fronts the vocal jazz combo Carnal Echo.
The Graysmiths and Carnal Echo are touring together in 2016 with dates lined up across the Southeast and beyond, debuting a fresh set of originals slated for release later this year.
