Fleeting Moments is the debut effort from Lancaster, PA based alt/folk/roots-rock outfit AJ grey. The five-song ep was recorded during two weekends in Lancaster, PA at MR.STUDIO, and mastered by legendary engineer Andy VanDette (Rush, David Bowie, Metric, Beastie Boys, De La Soul, and more). The ep was released at The Candy Factory in downtown Lancaster, PA on 8/5/11.
Composed of four friends, AJ grey write and play songs that evoke questions of life, of time, of how things are and will not always be. With the premise that life is a series of fleeting moments, they weave stories with fact, giving a sense of soulfulness that permeates the mind. Think of the times when you knew what you wanted in life, or of those times when you felt completely lost. AJ grey encompasses the spirit of both, while satisfying all that fall in between.
Stylistically, think the roots-folk elements of Ray Lamontagne, Tallest Man on Earth, and Bob Dylan with the rock elements of Dawes, The Band, and Wilco. Intelligently catchy lyrics riding atop solid acoustic guitar, blended with ever contagious harmonies, along with driving melodica (yes, melodica), bass, keyboard, bells, and percussion create AJ grey's original brand of folk/roots rock.
