Recording Wrapped, Hello 2014…

December 30th, 2013

Our two-week recording session in Chicago was a success!  After 13 twelve-to-fourteen hour days in a row, the band has returned home to Austin.

Working with our producer-for-hire Chris Kress at Groovemaster Studios was a humbling and gratifying experience like no other.

We can’t wait to debut the album, but alas, that is still a few months away.  So come check out some shows in the meantime!

Happy New Year to all, and Long Live Rock n’ Roll!

Here comes the new album…

December 1st, 2013

Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit are embarking on their most exciting adventure to date: recording their brand new full length LP.

Sam, Seth and Patrick will be making a 1500 mile voyage north to the Windy City, for two weeks, to put down a whole new collection of original songs.

Joining us will be our producer for hire, Chris Kress.  Chris has over 15 years experience mixing, editing, engineering, and producing all over the world.  He has worked with major acts such as Dave Matthews Band, and is thrilled for his chance to work with the Grit.

The cream dream of a studio known as Groovemaster Recording Studios in Chicago will be our home and office for a fortnight of relentless creation.

This will be the band’s most important work to date and should be available for all in the Spring on 2014.

We can’t wait to get to work and we can’t wait to share our creation with the world.

A very HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!!  You’ll be receiving our gift about four months late, but it will be well worth it!

See ya’ll in 2014!!!!

Tour a Success! SPECIAL THANKS!!!

September 3rd, 2013

Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit have touched down back home  in Austin, TX after nearly 4 weeks on the road.  Our 2013 Summer Tour was a complete success and an amazing experience for all three of us.

We would like to give special thanks to all the friends, family, and fans who made the trip such a delight.  Without your exuberance, food, shelter, ideas and support- this tour would not have been the joy it was.

With yet another major stepping stone under our belts, it’s time to keep marching forward and concentrate on our next major project: THE NEW ALBUM.

Stay tuned!
