TI Exclusive: The Grape And The Grain On Upcoming Tour!

1417746880168
With their self-titled, full length album out, The Grape and The Grain is ready to get on the road for their 2015 tour! Melding blues, folk and hard rock, this band of multi-instrumentalists have created a balanced album that rock fans are able to connect with.
This TI Exclusive is all about The Grape and The Grain.  From their beginning in 2012 to their upcoming tour, we have the latest scoop!
Where did the name “The Grape and The Grain” come from? 
The grape represents wine, and the grain is whiskey or beer. There’s a saying that you shouldn’t mix the grape and the grain when drinking, and that saying became a long running joke in the band ‘3’ after a night of drinking the grape and the grain.
You are all extremely talented musically, what are some of the drawbacks of this?  
I guess being artistic in anyway can sometimes make a person kinda weird…
But that’s not really even a drawback. I think that just makes a person more interesting.
Does it make things easier that you are all really musically talented?
In life? Probably not! But, when there’s a group of people, and you’re working together writing songs it definitely can make things easier.
How has “The Grape and The Grain” changed since it began in 2012?
In 2012 The Grape and The Grain started as just a thing for me to do for fun. I wanted to learn how to write songs really, and I sorta dived in on my own, and started this as more of a recording project at first. But, it quickly grew into something more, and I knew I really wanted to play these songs live. Thankfully my best buds in the world are some of the best musicians I know. I was lucky enough to just have to give my friends a call. Since then it’s become a band. There’s now multiple writers and musicians. We recently recorded this album, and it’s the first that we’ve done as a full band.
We have also done a little bit of touring since 2012, and we’ll continue to do so in 2015.
What do you hope listeners take away from your music?
I kind of hope that everyone takes away something different. Most of the songs are stories lyrically. Some of them are based on true stories and some of them are just made up. I like to think that with some stories you can take away your own meaning from them. Whether it’s just for entertainment or maybe something deeper hopefully people can connect to this album.
Where will your February/March tour take you? 
We will be mostly staying in the north east this time around. The full schedule will be posted on our Facebook page soon.
What are you looking forward to from this tour? 
I love to be on the road. I love to travel and play shows so I look forward to touring in general. There’s always something weird or crazy that happens when touring and great stories always come out of it.
What is your favorite thing about studio time/live performances? 
My favorite part of being in the studio is really the whole creative process. The songs start as just an idea in someone’s head, and watching them come to life in the studio can be really fun, and a really cool experience.
Live performance is something completely different. I love it just as much. The live show is the moment, where as in the studio you’re trying to create something.  Make sure it’s perfect, make sure it’s what you wanted. Performing live, it’s a split second and it’s gone. It’s very exciting and nothing can match the feeling of a great show.
