Graham The Empire
Graham The Empire is a three-piece alternative rock band from Indianapolis, delivering an electrifying sound with a modern edge.
The band’s roots begin with frontman Graham Zebrasky, who studied classical piano and guitar from a young age while being exposed to pop music as well rock, new age, and new wave. Graham began experimenting with songwriting and computer audio recording technology and later on met bassist Harry Gagnon, raised on classic rock and also trained in classical piano. The pair refined Graham’s earlier demos, and recorded their debut EP that Graham self-produced. In 2017, Richard Crowe and Dustin Ogilvie joined the band to finally form the Graham The Empire trio.
Graham The Empire is a fantastical roadtrip, rife with invigorating riffs evoking a furious sound, twisting classic rock rhythms and infusing them with a mind-melting edge, dabbed with pop and EDM. Their music is a light of hope held out against long-forgotten woes, an exploration of body and mind, layering upbeat danceable vibes to a piercing, raw intensity.
Graham The Empire have released three singles “Nasty”, “The Best Of Me”, and “Save Me” in support of their upcoming debut EP on September 29th.
