Kris Gruen has released a beautiful new track called “Stable Song” A New York City native who’s put down roots in Vermont, Kris effortlessly blends sagacious wit and emotional depth. This song is so beautiful and simple, yet very entertaining. Of course I loved the guitar and vocals but more so I liked the lyrics as they make you feel warm and cuddly. Great work.
Over a four year period Kris worked with LA writer/producers Brad Gordon (Vance Joy, Dan Wilson),Justin Gray (James Bay, John Legend,) and Ramin Sakurai (Supreme Beings of Leisure), Finnish singer-songwriter Peppina, and LA artist AM.
During his 2015 European tour supporting Jesse Malin, Kris was led to Stockholm to work with Peter Morén (of Peter Bjorn and John). Gruen also collaborated with filmmaker Melissa Miller- Costanzo on the song “Coming Down Around Me” for her feature film “All These Small Moments” starring Molly Ringwald and Jemima Kirke, which premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival this past April. Longtime producer Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields, The Bones of J.R. Jones) produced the track in his Brooklyn based Cottage Sounds studio, as well as The Morén duet and the album closer, “2008,” a beautifully nostalgic ballad co-written with Los Angeles based artists Jim and Sam.
