Drawing inspiration from the world of Hollywood, it’s unrealistic expectations and the vices that people use as a form of escapism, Grey hopes that her music will help listeners aim to be the purest and honest versions of themselves. “There is a lot about living in a pop culture centered world that we deem as ‘normal behavior’. I hope that the music can remind the listener that this follower-centric, alternate persona universe we live in is all temporary happiness,” reveals the songstress who is known for her dynamic glittery performances.
Grey’s highly anticipated upcoming EP Cult Classic vocalizes these cultural issues and expresses Grey’s vulnerability and anger towards the world we are living in and her desires for the world we are shaping. Produced by Grammy award-winning Mike Schuppan (Paramore, M83, Ziggy Marley) and mastered by Dave Cooley (Fitz & The Tantrums, Stone Temple Pilots), the release is packed with powerful storytelling and imaginative visuals. Grey admits, “Each song has its own identity and story it wants to tell”. Sonically the EP is built around organic instrumentation, fusing modern electronic soundscapes while ensuring that the production doesn’t take away from the honesty of the music. Featuring string arrangements, full choirs, and authentic instruments, the release delivers listeners with a dynamic and dimensional experience. Having been described by Galore Magazine as “bringing Hollywood glamour to a sultry story of love, drugs, and vanity” and adding theatrical elements, Grey is essentially the Elizabeth Taylor of the modern pop music industry.
