THE GRAHAMS: The Grahams, traveling troubadours, always itching for the next ride out of town guitars and whiskey in tow. In 2013 their wanderlust took them down the Mississippi to the Atchafalaya swamp in Louisiana, then in 2015 it was the American rails, and a cross-country odyssey that resulted in not only a new album but an award-winning film. In 2017, with the country reeling from a seemingly unstoppable vortex of disorientation, The Grahams embarked on perhaps their most adventurous journey yet, pointing their Harleys west to explore the “Mother Road” and the concept of “real” America with the eccentric and notorious characters who live and work in the strange and mysterious world that is Route 66. What they discovered was both heartening and heartbreaking, an America torn, but aching to come together, the culmination of decades of manhandling of the so called American Dream.

As is typical of the Grahams this dusty excursion begat a fountain of inspiration, the results of which are, so far, a new feature length documentary film and accompanying soundtrack, with contributions from some of Nashville’s finest musician, including Elizabeth Cook, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Dylan Leblanc, Chuck Mead, Andrew Combs, and many more. Love & Distortion is not a travel guide or a musical biopic, this documentary, which follows The Grahams down Route 66, is an unconventional narrative weaving in and out of moments and realities that can be found in the various sub-cultures of America’s Main Street.

Love & Distortion, the film and soundtrack, along with a brand-new studio album currently being recorded with producers Richard Swift (The Arcs, The Black Keys, The Shins) and Dan Molad (Lucius, JD McPherson) will will be the twin carbs on the snarling machine that will drive The Grahams forward in 2019.

Formulaic country music is something their talents, if not their pride, would allow them to do, but instead they choose to go their own unique way, something deserving of huge applause. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if their reward is the huge success that such an original couple deserves.” – American Roots UK
