On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, GRAYTheBand has released his new single, All Done, from his debut album of the same name about society and relationships.
Gray Ford, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, leads the Edmonton-based alternative, neo-soul, and R&B project GRAYtheband, along with a rotating cast of artists. GRAYtheband is an unfiltered yet refined take on the genre that is the result of mixing traditional instrumentation with contemporary production.
Ford’s warm and melismatic vocal style is perfectly complemented by the band’s polished yet unpolished approach, resulting in a sedately powerful sound. As Ford sings about maneuvering through turmoil, his music is set against the backdrop of warm piano melodies, echoing instrumentation, and soulful velvet tones.
All Done, Ford’s long-awaited debut album, is a moving look at the subtleties of modern society, relationships, and the difficulties of self-preservation in an effort to honor the Edmonton music scene. The album’s overarching theme of love and difference will resonate with people from all walks of life as we conquer the ups and downs of this world.
The title track, “All Done,” will be released as the debut album’s first single. This moving introduction to the album makes reference to overcoming a particularly difficult time in one’s life. It refers to a time in Ford’s life when he stopped doing everything to help his family.
With this song, Ford was closing a chapter of place and time. People seem to associate the song’s general sentiment and lyrics with their own difficult, and sometimes traumatic, experiences. The recurrent line “all done” serves as an affirming and encouraging declaration of safety. Ford’s vulnerability acts as validation and support for listeners, giving them comfort and reminding them that they are never alone.
GRAYtheband is certain to be on everyone’s radar when the highly anticipated album All Done comes out.
