“von Grey is poised to make a splash in the pop scene,” predicted the Santa Barbara News Press while TheComet.com hailed the quartet as an “Artist to Watch,” praising their “incredible musicianship…and intricate harmonies.”
The Atlanta Journal Constitution urged: “see them now, because a few years down the road, you might have to pay big bucks for nosebleed seats in an arena to catch these talented musicians” while American Songwriter observed: “When your song is the most added to Triple A Radio, behind Mumford & Sons’ latest single, you know you’re doing something right. That’s the case for von Grey and ‘Coming For You’…”
