Edmonton’s GRAYtheband Releases Emotionally Charged New Single “All Done” From Upcoming Debut Album

Edmonton-based alternative, neo-soul, R&B project GRAYtheband, led by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Gray Ford, is excited to announce the release of their first single, “All Done,” from the upcoming debut album of the same name. The band, known for its unique fusion of traditional instrumentation and modern production, showcases a refined and unfiltered take on the neo-soul genre.

With a goal to pay homage to the Edmonton music scene, Ford has poured his heart into the long-awaited debut album, All Done. The album offers a thought-provoking exploration of the pervasive nature of modern society, relationships, and the challenges of self-preservation. As the overarching theme of love and disparity emerges throughout the album, listeners from all walks of life will find resonance and solace in Ford’s introspective lyrics.

The title-track, “All Done,” is the emotional gateway to this compelling debut album. The song delves into the concept of moving past an exceptionally challenging period in one’s life. For Ford, the song draws inspiration from a time when he put everything on hold to support his family. The raw emotion and vulnerability Ford channels through his warm, melismatic vocal style are sure to captivate listeners.

The band’s polished yet raw sound effortlessly complements Ford’s distinctive vocals, resulting in a sedately powerful and evocative listening experience. “All Done” weaves warm piano melodies, echoing instrumentation, and soulful velvet tones to create a sonic tapestry that encapsulates the essence of navigating through adversity. As Ford explains, “I was closing a chapter of place and time with this song. Since showing others, folks seem to associate the lyrics and general emotion of the song with their individual trying – and sometimes traumatic – experiences that they have endured.”

The song’s repetitive line, “all done,” serves as a comforting and supportive affirmation, offering listeners a sense of safety and validation. Through Ford’s heartfelt vulnerability, listeners are reminded that they are not alone in their struggles and can find solace in the shared experience of overcoming life’s challenges.

As the highly-anticipated release of the debut album All Done approaches, GRAYtheband is poised to become a prominent fixture on the music scene. With their unique sound and emotive storytelling, the band will surely capture the hearts and minds of listeners worldwide.
