"Beautiful album. Piper-Grey well produced indeed. Great vibes, sweet, soothing and uplifing harmonies throughout, "Drive All Night" and all the rest! "Apples" reminescent of Buffalo Springfield, you guys have the vocals dialed in, and you sure can pick them git-tars. "Glossolilla" mighty pretty. Dig the rock-gospel dobro on "Tookie", and the spirit permeating the whole album actually. "Your love was always stronger than a storm"; that line got me. Orchestral ending on "Open Sails", and the abrupt ending on "Tookie" reprise, nice touches. Great job you guys. I really am enjoying it! Thanks for doing the trade it's worth more than gold."
Played last night with Earl Grey, as part of the duo "Piper~Grey" at a community center in Newbury Park, CA. The Fireside Concert Series, run by Bob Kroll, had a last minute cancellation and he asked us to fill in. We played a half-hour set (six songs) to open the evening, followed by the fine works of Brad Colerick and then Sabrina & Craig. Great audience.. filled the room (about 100 people) who hung on every word and note. Earl and I have not played publicly since May but have been practicing and it showed. We played well. When that happens, there is a transcendency to the experience that is palpable. It carries. A similar experience, musically, took place in Cleveland OH, about a month ago. I played a wedding reception with some old band mates of mine ("The Late Show"; Jack Hire, Robin Jung, Steve Bain, Billy Piper and myself with Paul Roberts on the drums) and damn was it fun! We had not played in six years, had one rehearsal in July, and still we managed to find a vein and a way to run with it. Great musicians all.. what a joy to play with them again. The response was electric with people up and not just dancing... letting it loose out there in front of us. Last night in Newbury Park, Earl's hometown by the way, had some magical moments when the music seemed to take flight, bigger than both us. Piper~Grey is an experience like none other I've had. I look forward to the next time.
This series, at the West Valley Music Center in the San Fernando Valley, is a premier place to hear some of the best acoustic songwriters in Los Angeles. We are honored to be in the company of Jeff Gold and Garrett Swayne on this evening.

Sabrina & Craig, a great duo, has invited Piper-Grey to play on Sat. 3/13 at Hallenbeck's General Store in North Hollywood. This will be a fun evening. Hallenbeck's is a great place to hear original acoustic music.
Brad Colerick's songwriter showcase at WineStyles in South Pasadena has invited Piper-Grey to play on Wed. 3/10 starting at 7pm. We've heard good things about this venue and about Brad. Looking forward to it..
Piper-Grey played a 30 minute set in Irvine (Hyatt Regency) at the Far West Folk alliance. We brought out two brand new songs ("Must I Go Alone" and "Signatures in the Sand") plus a few of our standards. Nice experience to see all those great songwriters and to be playing amongst them. We hope to do the whole weekend in the future.

This is very nice room to hear music. - The Church In Ocean Park is located at 235 Hill St., Santa Monica, 90405 310-399-1631 for more info...
Piper-Grey will be on hiatus this summer (2009) while Earl (Grey) recuperates from back surgery. We expect to be back with a vengeance in the fall, if not sooner. Good health to all. P-G
This past Monday night (3/23/09) in South Pasadena, TROUGH RECORDS showcased nearly all of the artists on the label in an evening of acoustic acts at the Fremont Center Theatre. Every act "brought their A-game", said Dave Morrison, a terrific songwriter who performed that night. It was great song after great song. Many thanks to Lois Tedrow for all she did to provide the space for all of us to perform and husband Tim who not only ran the sound board, but also performed as half of the fine duo, Tedrow-Vreeland. You can learn more about all of the artists on TROUGH RECORDS at...
Piper~Grey's debut album "APPLES" has been named 4th best in 2008 as part of a top ten list compiled by American Songwriter Senior Editor Paul Zollo. The lists were published on December 15th in the latest edition of American Songwriter magazine.
"Apples", the debut album by Piper-Grey, is available now on
Trough Records proudly announces the release of APPLES (Catalogue No. TRCP 1314), the debut album from Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter duo PIPER-GREY. Recorded at Tin Drum Studios with such great musicians as Freebo on fretless bass, Matt Brown on keyboards, Greg Krueger on mandolin and legendary Ambrosia drummer Burleigh Drummond (who also engineered the album), coproduced by David and Earl and featuring 11 new songs (8 of which the duo cowrote), APPLES presents two superbly talented artists bringing out the best in each other and their art. Filled with beauty, love and adventure ("Ireland," "Tempe," "This Winter's Lullaby" and the spiritually-tinged title track), wistful memories ("Ioway"), celebration ("Open Sails" and the rollicking opener "Anyone Else in the World") and cries for justice and unvarnished rage against war and political gamesmanship ("Tookie," "The Decider"), APPLES soars with the emotion of two gifted voices and unquestionable musical talents forming one incredible sound.
