Formed by Jared Mullins (guitars, drums, vocals) and Joe Brooks (bass, vocals, piano) in 2007, Grin's Edge is not your typical modern rock band. They're a multi-instrumentalist trio. How's that for unique? This album displays the piano work of Joe (who is also the bass player) and Jared's drumming (who is also the guitarist and singer.) Convinced yet? Ever wonder where the name 'Grin's Edge' came from? In 2006, Jared was jamming with some other musicians when he came across a line in Macbeth: 'there's daggers behind men's smiles.' 'Smiles' was changed to 'grin's,' 'daggers' was changed to 'edge' and...voila! a band name! So about the album...It features 11 tracks all of which were recorded, mixed, and mastered in Southern California. (Greg Lurssen at Lurssen Mastering of 'O Brother Where Art Thou' fame mastered the CD.) Every song is musically diverse. 'Powertooth' leans toward folk. 'Aubrey Sky' is good riff-rock. 'A Penny Gone' features mandolin etc. Etc. If you like music with crafty drum-work, heavy yet tasty guitar licks and solos and soulful bass-work, then this is the album for you! Check out the singles, 'Aubrey Sky' and 'A Penny Gone.'
