THE BAND: Founded by brothers, born in the rust belt of Pennsylvania, the music of Fern Street emphasizes expressive lyrics and clean melodies with a touch of country-fused rock. If altcountry /folk-pop were a genre, Fern Street would be its ambassador. Fern Street has been a steady product of evolution and our current lineup is the strongest to date with primary songwriter David Gruitza on guitar and lead vocals, William Gruitza on keys, Dave Callari on bass, and Don Cotton on drums.
Fern Street released an acoustic debut EP in the fall of 2016 to strong reviews. The band is back in the studio and 2018 will see the release new material and a much anticipated full-band electric-charged EP. Fern Street takes the craft of songwriting seriously. The band stays connected to its singer-songwriter roots all-the-while crafting infectiously catchy tunes that progressively defy contemporary labeling. Fern Street is too country to be rock, too rock to be folk, and too pop to be country. Fern Street is available for downloading and streaming on all major music sharing platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Itunes, Iheart Radio etc…).
When the humidity, traffic and insanity of the swamp become too much, it's time to sit back, take a breath and remember where it all began - back in Pennsylvania on a quiet corner on Fern Street.
We'll see you at the show!
