West Coast Tour, Brazil Shows,
CMJ, SXSW, Music Video, etc.

It’s been a busy year for Vermont based, Kris Gruen. Since the release of his sophomore record Part Of It All last spring, he’s toured up and down the West Coast several times, spent a week performing in Brazil, made his premier music video for the song “Red Doors”, played CMJ and SXSW, is working on a limited edition vinyl release, and is about to embark on a string of dates around the US throughout the summer.



Some Quotes on Kris Gruen

“He has an unnerving talent to take sophisticated material and make serious, grown-up pop songs, that neither sacrifice intelligence or hooks.”
- Rob F., Leicester Bangs, UK

“Kris Gruen’s Mother West label notch up another creative winner with this eleven-track curiousity. Gruen is of a similar proposition to The Pernice Brothers or Iron and Wine, armed with plenty of strong choruses and deft use of hook-line, but it’s the depth on this album that demands a wider audience-- a very organic and authentic album of warm-veined and druggy Americana that M Ward might even cop a nod to. Hopefully, Mr. Sony or at least Mr. Rough Trade or Ms. 4AD will see sense and license this fine collection in the UK as soon as possible. Heartily recommended - take note UK record-labels.”
- Paul Pledger, Allgigs, UK
