ABOUT THE BAND

A trio of longtime friends and musical collaborators, Kansas City's Old Sound crafts traditional and original folk music. Led by Grady Keller's imaginative storytelling, Old Sound travels through song with solid three-part harmonies and evocative acoustic compositions. The trio is strengthened by the exploratory bluegrass flat-picking style of Chad Brothers and the playful doghouse groove of Greg Herrenbruck on upright bass. With musical roots in their hometown Winfield, Kansas, Brothers and Herrenbruck cut their teeth in the picking circles and campground stages of the Walnut Valley Festival. Paired with Keller's colorful melodies and lyricism, Old Sound’s approach makes for easy front porch listening.

Old Sound released the studio album "Rain Follows The Plow" in Spring 2014.  Recorded and produced by Phil Wade of The Wilders, the album showcases the band's well-worn chemistry and musical interplay.  The Pitch Magazine said “Rain Follows The Plow assuages any headache, calms any painful maladies and stirs you out of any dusty depression.”  The trio also released the holiday album “An Old Sound Christmas” in November 2017, putting “a new spin on Christmas” according to KSHB TV.  The band performs regularly in Kansas City and regional area festivals and listening rooms, including a 6-week residency at Worlds of Fun’s WinterFest.  Old Sound is currently working on a new original studio album to be released in September 2019.
