Seattle band Hallways brands a unique style of alt. country rock with a psychedelic edge. With soulful, dynamic live energy, the five-piece supports strong vocals and harmonies, a multi-instrumentalist and driving rhythm section.
The romance between singer/songwriters Grant Burton and Stephanie Parrish inspired the two to form a band when they met in 2007. With strong vocals, haunting harmonies and the musical compliment of Parrish on piano and Burton playing guitar, the duo began writing, singing and performing together.
During the recording of Ghosts, the duo began experimenting with extraordinary local talent: multi-instrumentalist Kimo Muraki, drummer Brian Pappenfuss and bassist Shane Herrell. Now a full five piece ensemble, with touches of psychedelic folk, alternative country and indie rock, HALLWAYS has earned a reputation for their strong live performance.
“If you haven’t had the chance to check Hallways out yet, you may be in for a surprise. For their live set, they have reconfigured their slow country ballads into more rockin’ tunes.” -KEXP
“After seeing them live, we are absolutely believers and we’re paying attention now.” -Sound on the Sound
HALLWAYS was selected on behalf of Seattle Weekly as a stand-out act of 2009 and has performed at Capitol Hill Block Party, Georgetown Music Festival, Reverb Festival, Burning Beast, Noise For The Needy and venues such as Neumos, Comet Tavern, Cha Cha Lounge and The Tractor Tavern. HALLWAYS is excited to further experiment and continue building on their sound, which has been called unclassifiable by their fans. “This is a band whose greatest asset is attacking its music with a certain abandon, leaving the songs to assert themselves.” -Sound Magazine
