State Theatre Presents Bay Ledges with Greasy Grass
July 7 @ 8:00 pm
Zach Hurd started Bay Ledges in his bedroom after moving to Los Angeles from a small town in coastal Maine in 2015. It began as an attempt to make fun, creative sounds with no expectation. Chopped up guitar lines, playful beats and manipulated vocals created soulful, glitchy songs with a feeling of nostalgia.
The project took off when Hurd’s 2016 single, “Safe,” jumped to the number three spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart. In the years that followed, Bay Ledges toured all over the US and Canada, sharing the stage with such acts as Yoke Lore, Magic City Hippies and The Palms. In 2020 Hurd utilized time off the road to get back to the more personal process of making music – writing, producing and mixing his 2020 EP, New Daze. The result was a more intimate exploration and an evolution of the Bay Ledges sound.
Greasy Grass is a psychedelic pop quartet from Portland, Maine, USA. Their music is a shifting combination of unbridled psychedelia, vintage saccharine softness, loose garage groove, karaoke bar melodrama, razor sharpness, effortless passivity, and film score grandiosity.
In 2021 the band released their debut EP Abject Luxuria, recorded with engineer Jerry Streeter just before March of 2020. The sessions produced two music videos: one for Century Gothic, made by the band themselves, and the other directed and produced by internet oddball legend and hero Phil Thomas Katt.
