For years now, Sarah Gregory, a Texas native now based in
Brooklyn, has been leaving audiences slack-jawed and smiling because of
her powerful and unaffected voice and refreshingly tell-it-like-it-is
songs. Equally steeped in soul, folk, and gospel music, Sarah brings her
own distinctive style to the table with every performance. In addition
to her work with the Stanleys, Sarah has been making a name for herself
through her performance with Asthmatic Kitty's The Welcome Wagon,
BiFrost Arts' compilation albums, and most notably The Gregory
Brothers' viral video sensation Auto-Tune the News.
The Stanleys, Sarah's crack backup band, consists of Evan Gregory (Auto-Tune the News, The Gregory Brothers) on keyboard, vocals, and musical direction, Doug Hulin (The Gregory Brothers) on bass, Rob Ritchie (Zach Williams) on guitar, Spencer Cohen (Diane Birch, Dusty Brown) on drums, Eli Asher (The Respect Sextet, Bjorkestra) on trumpet, and Justin Keller (Land of Leland, The Welcome Wagon) and Josh Rutner (The Respect Sextet, HappyFunSmile) on saxophone.
