Biography: Killing Grace
Killing Grace is an original, dynamic, energy-driven hard-rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. Their songs are a mix of hard-driving rock groove anthems and hypnotic melodies, insane shreds, and raw lyrics that speak to your soul. Killing Grace has a large and very loyal fan base in the Middle Tennessee area and has consistently packed their hometown shows to capacity. The band has a unique sound heavily influenced by Godsmack, Alice In Chains, Seether, Avenged Sevenfold, Trivium, ect. The band has shared the stage with Jeff LaBar from Cinderella, Todd Whitener from Tantric and Days of the New, Green Jello, Halcyon Way, and countless other rock acts. The band has received numerous accolades such as the 2013 Music City Mayhem award winners for best hard rock band and people’s choice, the 2014 NIMA award winners for best hard rock band, and nominated in 2015 at the NIMA Awards for best hard rock band. The band collectively is known for being extremely fan-friendly, and prides itself on making sure everyone at their shows has the best time of their life. Each member has an outgoing personality and strives to make themselves available to everyone. The band has received positive reviews in publications such as the Petersburg Times, The Dirty Room online magazine, and the Hard Rock Press online magazine in which they called Killing Grace’s large following “near cult like”. Meet The Band: Matthew Dee Edmondson, Lead Vocalist and Songwriter Matthew grew up in Clarksville, Tennessee. He started his professional career in San Diego California singing in clubs like the Whiskey a Go Go, The Roxy, The Troubadour, and countless clubs between San Francisco and San Diego, opening for Y&T, War & Peace featuring Jeff Pilson from Dokken, and many others. Matt is a founding member of Killing Grace. Brandon Bell, Rhythm Guitar, Backup Vocalist Brandon was born in Alexandria, Louisiana, where he grew up being surrounded by musical education and opportunities for live performance. His instructional background includes private lessons on vocals, guitar, bass guitar, and piano, as well as collegiate studies of musical theory and application. Performance outlets for these instruments came in the form of live bands, choir, orchestra, theater, and studio session work. In 2004 Brandon moved to the greater Nashville area to pursue a career in music, as well as further his musical education. After years of playing in various bands in Tennessee, Brandon accepted an offer from Killing Grace to become a full time member, assuming the role of guitar/vocals. Previous live performance roles in bands include vocals, guitar, and bass guitar. Previous notable bands that Brandon has performed in include: Lobo, Voodoo Prophet, Stigma Strain, Hybris, Phat Boyz, Sheltered Society, Garden, and Driven, as well as various guest appearances in both live and studio scenarios. Colt Hendricks, Lead Guitar, Backup Vocalist  Colt was born in Gallatin Tennessee. He has been playing guitar since the age of 7, and previously played with Matt in a band called Radicult. Colt cites his major influences as early Metallica, Trivium, Amon Amarth, and Devil Driver. Colt is legendary in Nashville for his high energy live shows and his progressive lead playing, and let’s not forget his extremely long locks of Viking blonde hair. Rob Mckee, Drummer Rob grew up in Nashville and has made his mark on the Nashville metal scene for numerous years in popular bands such as Witch Hammer and Circle of Signs, touring from Texas up to Pennsylvania and down through Florida. Rob is influenced by Machine Head, Slipknot, Korn, Metallica and Pantera. The band affectionately calls Rob “the human metronome” due to his incredible skill on percussion. Chad Grant, Bassist Chad (also nicknamed the “Low End Warrior”) has been playing bass since age 13 and is skilled in the genres of heavy metal, hard rock and rock, jazz, funk and country. Chad cites Faith No More, Soundgarden, Tool, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as major influences. Chad has played in major ensembles in college and in multiple Church events and is highly regarded as one of the top bass players in Middle Tennessee evidenced by his showing in the 2014 Bass-Off held in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In February 2015, Killing Grace signed with Red Arrow Entertainment management and in August started recording their debut album on Red Arrow Records in South Carolina. The recording process was a dream come true, as the years of hard work and songwriting came to fruition at the recording studio. The album is currently available on Amazon.com, iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify, and on the band’s official website www.KillingGrace.net. Killing Grace enjoys regular radio rotation on 102.9 The Local BUZZ FM in Nashville and on countless internet radio stations, where their first single off their self titled debut album “Untouchable” is receiving high praise and accolades. DJ Andy Herrin (drummer for CAVO out of St Louis) has the guys as regular guests on Sunday nights. The Nashville Scene, a local Entertainment magazine, regularly covers Killing Grace hometown shows. Killing Grace is extremely excited about their new CD available now on Red Arrow Records. The experience of recording the debut record was amazing, and the band is currently touring in support of their debut CD. Now that 2016 is here, the band is excited to share their music with the world, to bring new- school songs combined with old-school, big production shows and all the fun and energy that rock and roll has to offer. The music has never been hotter and the band has never been better. The management, the crew, and the label are all working as one to bring you the best musical product on the market today. There’s nothing left to do but to get Killing Grace’s self-titled debut album on Red Arrow Records and come see them in a city near you. You won’t forget it and you won’t regret it.
