Artist of the day: Alexander and the Grapes
Dunedin brothers Alexander and Philip Charos (vocals and drums, respectively) lead Alexander and the Grapes, a young, lo-fi folk foursome that also features Chase Swan on guitar and lap steel and Tom Dicks on bass. With plans to record in Atlanta this summer and release an EP in the fall, the group is keeping busy by playing with their friends in the local music scene, including Tailgunner Joe and the Earls of Slander and Matt Hires, formerly of Brer.
The band plays April 3 at an art show at the Family Life Center at 10002 N 56th St., Temple Terrace. Click here to listen to an mp3 of Alexander and the Grapes' The Walk in the player on the right. And for more on Alexander and the Grapes, check out this interview.
