With his diverse blend of folk, bluegrass, and country, singer-songwriter Josh Gray jumps back and forth through the decades drawing inspiration from a vast array of musical influences.

With echoes of Johnny Cash and Townes Van Zandt as well as modern day troubadours like Joe Pug, his debut self-titled EP is a delight of finger-picked storytelling, heading off the beaten track whilst still covering the age old themes of love, loss, murder and death.

Listen to the excellent Ballad of Brady below.

One day a stranger arrived in town / with stars upon his boots
he asked where Brady could be found / they said the red saloon
upon the doors a partin’ wide / saw Brady sittin’ there
drunk off cheap liquor boys / and slumped back in his chair
