Grand Hallway - Featured Artist
|Bio:||Grand Hallway is an orchestral art-pop ensemble from Seattle, Washington. Consisting of Tomo Nakayama on piano and vocals, Erik Neumann on bass, Bob Roberts on drums, Jeramy Koepping on guitar, Alina To and Jaclyn Schumate on violin, and Esther Shin on cello, Grand Hallway has been making music since the fall of 2005. Equally influenced by Nina Simone, Nick Cave, The Smiths, Jeff Buckley, Rachels and Neil Young, Grand Hallway inhabits a richly melodic and deeply personal musical world akin to that of Andrew Bird, Rufus Wainwright, and Antony & The Johnsons.
Their debut album, Yes Is The Answer was recorded in the summer of 2006 by Koepping and engineer Moe Provencher at Jack Straw Studios. The eleven songs which comprise the album feature Nakayama's instantly memorable melodies, supported by layers of guitars, upright bass, pedal steel, jazzy percussion, and strings. Grand Hallway's music spans a myriad of genres, often within a single song, all the while evoking a sense of familiarity in its spacious structures and plain spoken words. Yes Is The Answer is released exclusively in Japan on Sideout Records (home to Bright Eyes, Cursive, Nada Surf, The Velvet Teen), and self-released by the band in the US.
