Graham has found the sound he has been searching for with his current Underground Township lineup and it’s reflective on his new album Yearbook, which has been well received by leading Austin radio stations KUT and KGSR and 12 other stations through out the country. Yearbook includes appearances by Alejandro Escovedo (No Depression magazine Artist of the Decade), Hayes Carll (Top played Americana Record of 2009), and Lloyd Maines (Multi-Grammy winning producer/and father of Natalie Maines). The depth of Gramham's influences and breadth of his worldly experiences are unmistakable in this diverse collection of heart thumping tunes. From ska to folk, honky-tonk to rock, his lyrics tackle such lofty and often neglected topics as social responsibility and justice, political corruption and greed while consoling the audience with pithy love songs and pure ‘feel good’ rhythms and melodies. Though seen as the debut of this young songwriter one must know this is not all we will hear and see from Graham, but rather an incredible step towards a successful musical journey.
