Great Days for Gramercy Riffs

Posted: February 3, 2011

It's Heartbreak - Gramercy RiffsNewfoundland & Labrador band Gramercy Riffs had spent 2 years of gigging, writing and recording before the release of their debut CD last May 2010, so it’s really no wonder -              It’s Heartbreak has met with such great reviews.  Their sound is solid – and their fan base is growing. 

 "Whether it's Mara Pellerin's ethereal vocals, Lee Hanlon's Orbisonesque stylings and a sound that is not only rocking, but danceable too - heartbreak has never sounded so good!" Kevin Kelly, Newfoundland Herald


SABS first heard of Gramercy Riffs when we sat down for a chat with Krystin Pellerin (Republic of Doyle).  She told us her favourite song was their tune “Call Me” and that her sister Mara is in the band...and man is she ever!!!  Mara Pellerin’s vocals along with those of Lee Hanlon have the critics taking notice.

Their cool song writing, their unique style and their killer performances have them on the rise and now on the road - opening for fellow NL band Hey Rosetta!

It's Heartbreak - Gramercy RiffsOur friend, Newfoundland Herald Senior Editor, Kevin Kelly says “Gramercy Riffs are a band people should really experience themselves”.  When someone who knows that much about great music gives you advice like that – you best take it….we know we will! SABS
