BioAfter a rolling piano line, “Ain’t Running Scared” lurches to life with a pounding rhythm and weaving guitar riff. Mixing a garage rock delivery with elements of roots and blues, it’s a rawkus and jovulant introduction to The Grass’ latest album, Rogue Waves. ..Recorded in Halifax after the band’s core members – brothers Willis Ryan (guitar/vocals) and Dylan Ryan (drums) – returned to their Dartmouth, Nova Scotia roots, the album captures the band’s signature retro-inspired sound. ..The Ottawa Xpress boasts Rogue Waves, “fuses Beatlesesque psychedelica with the swagger of old-school Rolling Stones and Neil Young.” ..The album also embodies The Grass’ dedication to high-spirited old-fashioned rock n’ roll fun – an enthusiasm that is echoed in the band’s energy-laden live performances. ..The vigor of their jangly guitars, and the excitement of their throw-back sound has not only earned the band slots at South by South West, Ottawa Bluesfest and the Halifax Pop Explosion over the past four years, but also garnered them a nomination for Best Country/Bluegrass Recording at the Music Nova Scotia Awards in 2006. ..Now, with a newly revamped lineup that includes former Rock Ranger member Daniel Baldwin (bass) and newcomer Ryan Stanley (guitar), The Grass continue to bring their blend of retro roots-rock to new avenues, steadily performing throughout Eastern Canada... .. .. ........ .. .. .. .. ...... width="480" height="385">.............. .. .. .. .. .. ...... .... ....< .... ...... ....Myspace Co ....Myspace Contact Tables..
