GRAYDON JAMES & THE YOUNG NOVELISTS COME OUT OF HIBERNATION TO RETURN TO THE EAST COAST WITH THEIR ENERGETIC FOLK-ROCK

Graydon James & the Young Novelists have spent this past winter doing what every full-blooded Canadian band should; hibernating and storing up songs and recordings. They ventured out to play some very special house concerts and a hootenanny, but focused most of their efforts on creating new material for their upcoming album at Typewriter Studio in Toronto. The band is excited to welcome spring back to the fields and to head out on the road to share the new material with folks throughout Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes.
