Fall From Grace is a Hard Rock Phoenix rising from the ashes of adversity. Each of the five band members are a walking testament to the saying “that which does not kill you, makes you stronger.” Creating music for the masses, each song is a story of struggle, and triumph.
Fall From Grace formed in the musical hotbed of Seattle Washington. However this punk-rock, foursome does not subscribe to the indie pop culture or grunge persona most are used to from the area. Instead, Fall From Grace live and play in the underbelly of the Seattle scene, hitting the hardcore clubs and breathing life into a new movement they are building, one that is breaking through with the help of acts like Aiden and Amber Pacific.
Fall from Grace’s gritty punk-rock sound is exemplified by their non-stop action packed live show. Front man Tryg commands the mob of psycho scenesters while singing songs with infectious melodies, brutal breakdowns and crowd clap choruses. Their music gives something to everyone. Although the subject matter is dark at times the display is up tempo and incites a dancing riot. This band has come together and faced the darkest of times but has spun it in a way that brings the message of hope and hard-core happiness to all who hear it.
Each of the four members of Fall From Grace has remained victorious against possible impending doom making this band their career and life focus. Ken Olson made it to every show and every daily practice while he was homeless and living out of his car. Drummer Kenny B signed up to serve in the US military but prior to even being able to serve in Iraq he became afflicted with health ailments and placed in a VA hospital in critical condition. As a soldier Kenny was forced to get inoculations for Small Pox and Anthrax, these vaccines turned against him giving him Epilepsy. To this day he suffers from seizures but works with Operation Ward 57 a group dedicated to the support of troops and the improvement of the conditions and environment at Walter Reed AMC. Singer, Tryg Littlefield has risen above early life issues. After divorcing his biological mother at the age of twelve due to mental and physical abuse, Tryg packed his bags to move in with his father and stepmother who became the pinnacle of strength in his life. Subsequently, Tryg has been leading a nomadic life. His wanderlust, love for touring and couch surfing ability was born from these years. His lack of family roots was the driving force that leads him to build Seattle’s musical community and reach out to his fans as family. Brian, the lead guitarist, and Ken Olson, on bass, share more in life than just being band mates. These brothers have unified to survive many mishaps, a tumultuous childhood in an impoverished environment, and a deadly car accident. In the middle of the night a drunk driver hit the car Brian was riding in. The car that struck them was traveling above the speed limit without their lights on and caused the car to spin out crushing the passenger side killing the opposing driver. Brian was pronounced dead on the scene however after 45 minutes of flat lining he awoke. Miraculously Brian came out of the accident without suffering brain damage, blindness or becoming paralyzed. After three weeks in the Trauma Intensive Care Unit and over a month of recovery he performs with vigour today. Faced with all of these challenges Fall From Grace has one goal and that goal is to rock your face off.
Understandably they were named “the band that will not die” during the televised finals of the Fuse TV $1 Million Battle Of The Bands. Fall From Grace outperformed over 7,000 bands nationwide on the internet, on local and national stages and on TV. FFG took the Seattle champion title which lead to them appearing as one of 17 chosen continental finalists to contend for a $1 Million record contract. As these bands competed against each other week after week on the Fuse TV series, Fall From Grace proved time and time again that their true hard rock spirit and endurance would reign supreme. With each challenge put before them the band gained the reverence of the celebrity judges; Johnny Rotten, Bif Naked and Billy Duffy, the respect of fellow competing bands and the love of the viewing audiences everywhere.
Their cult following continues to grow as the band tours non-stop. FFG has been playing alongside heavy-hitters coast to coast and hitting up touring festivals like The Vans Warped Tour. Now that Fall From Grace is part of the Bunk Rock Entertainment roster they are ready to take their message to a whole new level with the release of their 2nd full length album “Sifting Through the Wreckage” available nationwide and online on iTunes.
