Melding together the grit of the old-time blues with the blood-red soil of classic country to forge a well-worn hammer of modern music.http://www.granadatheater.com/event/1306191/
The Work is a band formed and based out of the great city of Fort Worth, Texas. Songwriter Grady Spencer met and befriended guitarist Trevor Powell and drummer Blake Sager on the stage of Paradox Church, under the marble angels of Bass Hall. After an absence of a steady bassist developed into an issue, Grady took to the dank underbelly of the Craigslist musician forums. It was there he found seasoned veteran Steve Moore lurking in the shadows, vintage bass in hand.
Grady Spencer and the Work meld together the grit of the old-time blues with the blood-red soil of classic country to forge a well-worn hammer of modern music. Their high energy shows keep people thirsty, rowdy, and always ready for more. The Work, from time to time, can be found riding around in what has been deemed "Jean-Claude Van Dam", an iconic and stately Econovan, to criss and cross all over the Southern United States. Their shows have been described as "unmissable" by more than one late night drinker...and they always know everything about everything.
If you could hear the sounds of love and loss, heartache and happiness, life and death, all at once, it may sound something like The Phantom Sensation.
The raw emotion in the words of songsmith Brandon Burnett is a pleasant escape from the norm. It is easy to see how perfectly matched he and his wife, Jessica, are, when their vocal harmonies blend together onstage, coupled with Brandon's guitar and the army of folk instruments Jessica plays in each song. Add to that the powerful drumbeats of Aaron Burke, Zach Zanetich's smooth bass lines, you will be hooked!
