Southern California (1992 – present)

There are several artists named “Shades of Grey.”

1. Shades of Grey is a Synthpop band from Southern California

Shades of Grey was formed in Southern California by brothers Tim and Tom Kramer in 1992

The band’s debut release, “Background,” was recorded and assembled at Knottypine Studios in San Bernardino, California. Released in May of 1992, “Background” was an underground hit in the Southern California area with songs like “Boys and Girls” and “The Red Hill.”

Shades of Grey once again headed back to the studio in 1993 with producer Cole Coonce. The untitled release featured “Goodbye” and “Emotional,” Shades of Grey’s most popular songs to date. Garnering regular rotation play from some of Southern California’s hottest radio stations, both “Goodbye” and “Emotional” became minor hits in the Southern California club scene.

In early 1997, the brothers were approached by David Lin of the newly formed Synthphony Records in New York and offered a record deal. The band agreed and in September of the same year released their first full-length album, “The Longest Day.” The album features re-workings of several songs from the past, as well as new songs such “Glory,” “The Longest Hour,” and “Nothing More To Say.”

Shades of Grey followed up their debut Synthphony release with a song contributed to the compilation “Untied Synthpop of America, Volume I.
