Grady Spencer & the Work, ‘The Line Between’

In case it wasn’t apparent listening to the songs found on The Line Between, Fort Worth singer-songwriter Grady Spencer’s website makes it clear: “Grady Spencer and the Work [makes] blue collar music for a blue collar world.” As the 13-track Between unfolds, that ethos is evident in every note Spencer and his bandmates play: direct, unpretentious and gorgeous in a profound, yet unshowy way. Consider Take My Hell, a song about a man wrestling with faith, a topic fraught with potential for sentimentality. Against a bluesy, country-rock riff, Spencer sings movingly of sharing his struggles with his son: “Though my spirit’s been frayed/I’m pulling through.” Salvation through song is as old as the idea of music itself, and, in its way, Spencer’s arresting LP functions as a salve for listeners.

Still working on that hot first release.



The Work is a band formed and based out of the great city of Fort Worth, Texas. Songwriter Grady Spencer met and befriended guitarist Trevor Powell and drummer Blake Sager on the stage of Paradox Church, under the marble angels of Bass Hall. After an absence of a steady bassist developed into an issue, Grady took to the dank underbelly of the Craigslist musician forums. It was there he found seasoned veteran Steve Moore lurking in the shadows, vintage bass in hand.

Grady Spencer and the Work meld together the grit of the old-time blues with the blood-red soil of classic country to forge a well-worn hammer of modern music. Their high energy shows keep people thirsty, rowdy, and always ready for more. The Work, from time to time, can be found riding around in what has been deemed "Jean-Claude Van Dam", an iconic and stately Econovan, to criss and cross all over the Southern United States. Their shows have been described as "unmissable" by more than one late night drinker...and they always know everything about everything.
