Exclusive Bonnaroo Interview: von Grey
A few years back, Andy Hull sent us a hand-written transcription of an interview Luke had passed along to him and we each sat around our computer screens in awe of how cool it turned out. As soon as we published it, we received a great deal of feed back from fans of the band thanking us for presenting an interview in such a unique format. However, it was completely a product of someone else’s creativity and we were fortunate enough to be the recipients.
Fast forward and we’re getting ready to head to cover Bonnaroo and begin discussing fun ways to interview the bands we’d lined up to talk with. Building on Andy’s original post, we picked up a moleskin and wrote out the things we were curious about from each band.
I think it caught a few bands off guard, but everyone had fun with the interviews. The non-traditional manner of the project was as exciting for us as it was for them and I can’t wait to share the other features.
I was thrilled to see von Grey back on the Bonnaroo lineup this year. The Atlanta-based band of sisters has have been on practically everyone’s radar over the past year – making appearances on “Letterman”, “Conan”, and with Brian Williams on “NBC Rock Center”, let alone all the printed media and radio that have been featuring them. The group was featured in our “Georgia Does Bonnaroo” post, as well as one of our “10 Artists to Watch at Bonnaroo“, so meeting up with them to chat sealed the deal for us – we’re fans.
Earlier this year, the girls released Live at Criminal Records: 01.01.13, their first live album. After hearing the album, it’s no wonder that the four of them have supported Sarah McLachlan, Lindsey Stirling, and Company of Thieves and have dates on the book with the Indigo Girls.
Catch von Grey on the road throughout the remainder of the year.
