GreyMarket is a two-piece electronic rock band hailing from Tampa, Florida.
Influenced early on by the likes of Radiohead, Muse and Led Zeppelin, drummer Michael Gargiulo and guitarist/vocalist Cave McCoy set about creating their own brand of epic rock music. Rather than disrupting their musical chemistry by trying to find other musicians with the same vision, the pair elected to fuse with laptop-powered electronics, adding sweeping strings, buzzing synths and pounding sine-wave bass to their arsenal.
The band’s greatest asset is its ability to put on a compelling live show, fueled by commanding stage presence and technical innovation. In a close second place is the duo’s commitment to self-sufficiency, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done right. This includes recording, mixing and mastering their own material, booking their own tours, and creating and managing their web presence themselves.
Oftentimes, the band reflects its cinematic influences more than its musical ones. Though inflections of Supertramp, Gomez and Genesis may creep through, more evident are the likes of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner and Star Wars. After all, every song should tell a story.
The duo has performed with such notable acts as The Hold Steady, Peter Murphy, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Quintron and Ms. Pussycat, World Leader Pretend, Murder by Death, Modern Skirts, The Fiery Furnaces and Willowz.
