The Blues and Greys @ SOhO ~ March 14, 2014
New music isn't hard to find in Santa Barbara, you just have to look for it. What is hard to find, and not just
in SB, is a new refreshing sound. The Blues and Greys are just that.

When Thom Flowers and Jonathon Miller approached Lindsey Ann Waldon to lay down some vocals for
them, they thought it would be a brief affair. They realized immediately what a great collaboration they
made and decided to commit. Soon after, they enlisted the help of Joey McDermott and Michael Million to
fill out the sound and hit the road. Thus you have the Blues and Greys.

No stranger to Santa Barbara, The Blues and Greys played a headlining show at SOhO to a large audience
deeply invested in the music. Waldon's strong, smooth, feminine voice sounded refreshing against the
somewhat new-wave indie rock soundscape. Heavily driven by melodies and keyboards, The Blues and
Greys distinguished themselves from the common sound of current indie rock by inducing a somewhat
dark, but still upbeat presence. Waldon's voice remained the constant as they moved through the much
too short arrangement off their EP, "Bright Lights."
The Blues and Greys are a band full of much talent and potential. It has been nice to see the evolution, and
see how nicely the band has melded together. They can definitely see the bright lights ahead of them.
