    LEGREE Announces the Release of Debut Album and Spring 2013 Tour

     

    North Carolina talent celebrates an overwhelmingly positive reception by music fans and prepares to take the music industry by storm and become the next breakout talent.

     

     

    After a whirlwind trip to Hollywood and an impromptu performance at STATUS LA Magazine’s star studded Fall Ball for some of Hollywood’s brightest stars including singer songwriter Grace Valerie and actor Jeremy London (Mallrats/Party of Five), contemporary country rock artist LEGREE jumps up to the music industry big leagues.

     

    Often compared to multi-platinum artist Ryan Cabrera, and lovingly dubbed the other man with the hair, LEGREE's lead singer Legree Graham has been experimenting and perfecting his sound. “It’s sort of a mix of Jason Aldean and Matchbox Twenty with my own unique twist. It's got a rock n' roll with southern rock/country influences” Legree Graham shares. Now, after several years of testing the bands talents in North Carolina, LEGREE is ready to go from jamming in bars to performing for thousands of fans. LEGREE is slated to release their first studio album Spring 2013. In addition to their much anticipated album, LEGREE is planning a bi-costal tour for Spring 2013.

     

    LEGREE's as of yet untitled album is a collaboration of several talented and nationally recognized artists including Mike Gossin from Gloriana who graciously co-produced singles "Good Friend" and "Radio" and Tommy Brothers who co-produced the remainder of the tracks. Billboard Country Music Chart Topping band Gloriana has won the Top New Vocal Group Award, Breakthrough Artists of the Year Award, and has been nominated for Country Music’s Artist of the Year, Single of the Year & Music video of the Year Awards.

     

    The release of their first album serves not only as a showcase for their amazing talent, but is also a way to celebrate the bands recently released music video “I’m Alive” reaching the 50,000 mark for Youtube views in over 30 countries around the world. "Legree is a perfect mix of classic southern and progressive alternative rock that appeals to a broad demographic" exclaims award winning actor/director Jeremy London.

     

    “Like any new musician trying to break into the industry, I’ve experienced my fair share of ups and downs, and have learned by trial and error. But with determination and perseverance, we are taking a leap of faith that we will get there”. Said lead singer Legree Graham.

     

    LEGREE is made up of Legree Graham (Lead Singer/Lead Guitar), Steve Williamson (Bass Guitar/Back-up Vocals), & Seth Rice (Drums/Back-up Vocals).
