"Cityscapes & Countrysides" is the culmination of two years of transition and growth for a young man trying to figure things out. Grayson's songs capture the heartbreak of losing loved ones, the trials and triumphs of everyday life, and aspirations for something bigger than himself.
Raised in a small town in western Kentucky, Grayson developed an appreciation for all things genuine. Grayson and his band, the Resolutions, cut the core elements of "Cityscapes & Countrysides" live in order to deliver the songs with as much raw energy and intimacy as the day they were written. Grayson wrote nine of the eleven songs on the LP, with "Decades" co-written by band member, Ryan Allen.
Grayson’s music reflects his influences from several genres - country, rock, folk, and bluegrass are all prevalent in this album. His lyrics are inspired by the words of Mark Twain, who always said, “Write what you know.” In keeping with this motto, Grayson’s songs pay homage to the things most important to him—family, friends, and a life without regrets.
A staple on the Lexington music scene for over three years, Grayson sold over 1000 copies of his 2015 debut LP "Down on Southland". His upcoming release shows growth as both a songwriter, performer, and band leader. Grayson and his band have opened for Sundy Best, played Moontower Music Festival, and been featured on Red Barn Radio. With this album, Grayson Jenkins & the Resolutions are poised to continue the growth of their regional and national presence.
