Gramercy Arms is a revolving NYC-based collective of musicians and artists. Masterminded by main songwriter/producer Dave Derby (Dambuilders/Lloyd Cole) the group is released its second full-length record, The Seasons of Love on UK label Reveal Records this summer.
Expanding from the sunny, unapologetically pop approach of the debut, The Seasons Of Love widens the musical palette as well as the range of collaboration by featuring Lloyd Cole, Joan Wasser, Tanya Donnely, Matthew Caws, Kendall Meade, Claudia Gonson, Doug Gillard, Erin Moran, Joan As Police Woman, Renee Lo Bue, Ray Ketchem, Verena Wiesendanger, Gedeon Luke and others. The album was recorded by Derby and Ketchem, mixed by acclaimed engineer Thom Monahan and mastered by Eric Broyhill.
Eternally inspired by the artistic heyday of '70s and '80s-era New York City, Gramercy Arms makes crisp, multi-layered pop music that elicits authentic emotion. Wistful, joyous, contemplative, cool and triumphant— depending on the track you land on, The Seasons Of Love might make you feel it all.
