HPMA Showcase Spotlight: Another Run, "Unique, Evolving, Passionate, Honest, Original"
In the weeks leading up to the Houston Press Music Awards showcase on Sunday, August 4, Rocks Off will be profiling a handful of performers each day, mostly in their own words - part of the best top-to-bottum lineup the showcase has ever had, in our humble opinion. See the showcase schedule and ticket information at HPMusicAwards.com, and watch Twitter (@hprocksoff) every day until the showcase for your chance to win tickets.
Please list all of your regular band members and what instruments they play.
Adrian Grammer, lead vocals/keys/drums; Brian Ramirez, guitar; Zak Weathers, guitar/vocals; Estevan Lerma, drums; Bob Lane, bass/vocals/trumpet.
Who is your single biggest musical influence and why?
Personally, I'm going to say the band OURS and their singer Jimmy Gnecco. They are something like no other. Jimmy's vocals are otherworldly at times. They haunt me.
Have you ever been HPMA-nominated before? When and what for?
We were nominated last year at the 2012 Houston Press Music Awards for Best Modern Rock and we won! We are very thankful and honored to represent Houston music!
