This week’s spotlight shines on Grown Up Avenger Stuff (GUAS), a four-piece out of Charlotte, North Carolina. The band consists of veteran guitarist John Thomsen and his two sons, Hunter on Bass & percussionist Tyler. Rounding out the band is their new edition, ripping lead vocalist Ray Stern who’s deep, round tones reminds me of Florence (Florence and the machine) mixed with Debbie harry (Blonde). “Pins” video above Founding member John puts it like this “What you get from us live is pure fun rock and roll. The connection and chemistry between us is so strong, especially between Hunter and Tyler, and Ray has proven to be a perfect fit, as though she was created to be the perfect front person for GUAS.” GUAS’ latest single “A.I.M.”, released just this year, is a great example of the depth of this well-round group of musicians. If you enjoy Grace Potter and/or the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s we think you’ll really dig GUAS. Have a listen here Ultimately, you are the best judge of what you like.
