The Humble Grapes Gear up for the Release of their Next Single “Young and Alive” out September 18th

Duo’s Forthcoming EP Due Out January 2016

Los Angeles, CA, September 20, 2015 – The dynamic duo making waves in the NYC indie circuit are The Humble Grapes consisting of producer David Kaufman and vocalist Brie Capone. Set to release their brand new highly anticipated single “Young and Alive” September 18th, the talented musicians will also be prepping for the rollout of their forthcoming EP out January 2016.

“We wanted to create a fun and upbeat song. Nothing too heavy lyrically, but we love arranging rich and funky bass lines, drum parts and vocal lines. The lyrics speak to a youthful urge to just be, and have fun, something both Dave and I can relate to. The song is about wanting to get out and enjoy life while you can even if you’re young and broke as a window,” states lead vocalist Brie Capone.

Young and Alive” is an honest depiction of the band’s unique style and music. The duo bring a fresh breath of modernity. Capone's incredibly rich, throaty voice that interplays over David Kaufman's brilliance on the piano into a rock infused, luscious romp through their many original compositions and songs are a joy to listen to and watch.

“Indie rock has melded a lot of genres and styles and Humble Grapes may not be the first to mash up cabaret music and rock but the band adds dashes or blues and classic soul and does it well.” –The Morning Call

The music video for “Young and Alive” will be on the band’s YouTube page September 15th and is directed by Mikhail Torich. Catch The Humble Grapes at The Bitter End in October and November. They will continue playing in the NYC area and have plans to expand touring throughout the tri-state area throughout 2016.
