Like a Rocket


A bloody mess of American music smashed together by a tanker truck stinking of oil, gasoline and carnival fried dough. Shit sister, it's music, so stop asking so many questions. By the way you look a little over dressed, take off that sweater and let me buy you a beer.


Often described as beautiful pairing of Levon Helm and Roger Waters, Like A Rocket mix great Alt-Country and 70s stoner psychedelia to bake a blisteringly funky creamy dreamy cake. A serious love of dreaming in rhythm, the songs all have something to move your body or engage your head. The lyrics are extremely personal, about broken relationships with mates, lovers, and the surrounding world of politics and dissatisfaction. You find yourself grooving along while picking up on choruses that speak to the world around you, particularly if you happen to being pulling twenty to life for a crime your ex actually committed.

Gray is an award wining songwriter getting nods from heavy hitters such as NPR's nationally broadcast Mountain Stage and the Carolina Theater Songwriter of The Year award.
