Shaun Degraff is in the midst of a personal journey, exploring uncharted territory, with unremitting influences of positive and negative energy, away from his comfort zone and approaching that sweet spot between good and evil. Thats where he survives. Its the tight rope he walks every day, and the title of his new album Grey Area.
One only has to listen to this insightful singer/songwriter to understand his message. Grey Area for instance, provides a track titled Green Man, where he applauds the universe for coming together (no matter the color of our skins) to deal with the damage we have done to our planet on one side, and then counters with the distain he has for those that would use this for their own personal advantages.
Another offering, Scenic Route to Die, speaks of the importance of living life for ourselves by staying true to our beliefs. We need to enjoy the ride itself, not concentrate on the inevitable one way trip towards death.
As a two time award winner for Best Modern Rock Album by Just Plain Folk the largest indie music organization in the world, Shaun has played such venues as the Hard Rock Café, the House of Blues, the Viper Room, and has toured with the USO. He now lives and works in Las Vegas, the Petri dish of mankind. Its the perfect place to observe all thats right and wrong within humanity. We all have the ability to be a little of both, mankind is bipolar, and thats what this (his 4th) album is about, exploring the good and bad in life and learning from the extremes. He believes that energy is both positive and negative and one cannot exist without the other. Once you experience his music, you will be inspired to dig deep within yourself and look at each of those sides. He wants to help you face your fears head-on, in that Grey Area.
