Like a fine blended moonshine of backwoods country soul, homegrown jams and the rhythmic prowess of a Santana/Allman Brothers like rhythm section, Pure Grain’s roots infused sound continues to defy genres or categorization and has earned them props with country, jamband, and classic rock fans alike. From southern fried rock to raw funk, country hooks, and bluesy soul, Pure Grain delivers high energy live performances straight from the farm fields and rolling hills of their hometown, Bright Indiana.
Pure Grain features the eclectic vocal and guitar stylings of Scott Siefferman, the driving percussive force of Michelle D’Amico and Brian DeBruler, coupled with the funk aspects of bassist Tony Nasser, rounded out by the soulful powerhouse vocals of Courtney D’Amico.
