Specializing in what they call “soul surrealism”, Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit stir up flavors of blues, rock, funk, and of course, soul into their glowing blend, anchored by the eponymous frontman’s rugged baritone voice. Based right here in Austin, Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit got their start nearly a decade back with their 2012 LP The Feelin’, and following their evolution across 2014’s Rapture and 2018’s Judgment Eve, the matured group is ready to re-introduce themselves in full force with a new self-titled full-length.
Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit drops this Friday and the band celebrates this Saturday at Central Machine Works alongside Aaron Stephens and Nichole Wagner. And since that trademark Texas heat has finally shown up, there’s no better time to let “Hot Blood” keep you cool.
