Lex Grey and The Urban Pioneers are a legendary band based in Catskill, NY. Fusing old school blues and classic rock, the soul of the band is singer-songwriter Lex Grey, whose power and passion blaze a primal fire.

The Lex Grey band soars with unbridled energy that only veteran performers possess, combining their influences to render a brand of blues that is truly exciting and new. Lex Grey has been compared to everyone from Betty Carter and Ella Fitzgerald to Robert Plant and Janis Joplin, yet her sound is uniquely her own.

On February 4th Ryder will perform a selection of dark faerietale songs with collaborator Dennis Herbert. Their music offers a playful fusion of macabre, funny, quirky, circusy and whimsical story-songs that will make you laugh, cry and wonder why.
