WRINGS is an American alternative pop/rock band formed in Sacramento, California in 2011. The band comprises vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Zack Gray, lead guitarist Sean Stack, and drummer Brandon Lee.
WRINGS' music is a melancholic blend of alternative rock and electro-pop. With influences ranging from Coldplay, Radiohead, The Killers, U2 and Muse, Gray's lyrics convey the darker sides of relationships while still maintaining a "silver lining" positive message. Arjan Writes of Grammy.com describes the music as, "melancholic, atmospheric melodies and well-constructed soundscapes that are bursting with veiled optimism".
Having only been together for over a year, WRINGS have made some considerable strides. They have opened for notable acts; Imagine Dragons, AWOLNATION, Lindsey Pavao (NBC's "The Voice"), The Features and K.Flay. They were chosen to perform on the finale show of Sacramento's annual "Concert in the Park" series, with over 5000 in attendance. Most recently, they were awarded "2012 Musician of the year" at the "Raw Awards". With a handful of fresh new material and a captivating live show, WRINGS is surely on the cusp of bigger things to come.
Retro-Inspired Folk Rock darlings of Sacramento, CA attribute their signature male/female vocal stylings to a modern Fleetwood Mac, with a family-style vibe comparable to the eclectic culture of the Grateful Dead. Their live show is like slamming poprox and soda while cuddling up with a Dr. Suess book as audience members are encouraged to participate with drums, tambourines & sing-a-longs. With 3 albums and several national tours under their belt, Musical Charis is a tall drink of water in a dry spell of musical monotony.
"They manage to infuse a pop sensibility into a big-band style of writing...you have nine different instruments harmonizing together, and it's this accessibility that makes Musical Charis a standout."-Absolute Punk.net
