ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Often compared to Jack Johnson, G. Love, and Nick Drake, Graybill is the stage moniker of vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist Kevin Graybill. Though comparable to others, he’s developed his own unique sound and genre sometimes referred to as Coastal-Folk, or Ganja-Blues.
Although his passion for music and performing started in his late teens, he spent much of his 20s living in Seattle and exploring ways one might blur the lines between vocation and play. It wasn’t until his late 20s that his passion for music was rekindled along this path in the most unlikely of places.
Moving to the central coast of California, he found the perfect place to allow his creativity to peak. Turning into a working musician, he started playing for tips at seafood shacks on the water, eventually building up to playing every stage in the area, over 150 shows a year.
2020 was set to be Graybill’s biggest year yet with a tour through the West coast and Montana booked. That’s when COVID hit. Instead of wallowing in disappointment, he redirected the ambition for touring into recording his debut album, High Tide/Low Tide. Recorded as two six-track EPs, together they strike a balance between High Tide’s sunny optimism and full-band arrangements and Low Tide’s more stripped down rainy introspection.
High Tide/Low Tide was self-released on April 16th, 2021, and went on to win Album of the Year on The Central Coast of California for the 2021 New Times Music Awards.
Graybill’s momentum continues into 2022 as he follows up a remix collaboration with electronic artist 9 Theory, with progress on his sophomore debut “The Path Less Traveled,” which includes the single “It’s Alright” featuring G. Love, which was released on Friday, March 18, 2022.
