For GREY, it was her first group project since a tenure with the lo-fi indie outfit Mellowdrone.
There was no shortage of hype, and even though their backing band consisted of one i Pod, they delivered the goods in spades.
Camila Grey adjusts the volume on her phone and clears her throat. From a breakup with their label, to Grey’s shoulder surgery in August, the duo has continued to release moody, emotive electro-pop to a largely receptive audience. “The news referred to her as ‘the actress Leisha Hailey,’ I didn’t really take any of the heat like she did,” admits Grey. ” “In my eyes it has been the most disgusting thing that’s ever happened,” says Hailey.
Later in life coming out stories are a beautiful thing y’all, hallelujah.
Samira and Lauren are ideal Instagram follows with their adorable photos from on and off set, especially Samira’s lovey posts about Lauren and their precious dog photos.
With her bright smile and snazzy brain, Poussey Washington made me smile from our first encounter.
Samira Wiley was out as a lesbian before starting on , but through the course of the first two seasons, began dating one of the show’s writers, Lauren Morelli, after Lauren divorced her husband.
Expectations mounted, and one year after releasing their self-produced EP, I See Red, they released their full-length.
Co-produced by GREY and Al Clay (Pixies, Blur), Common Reaction was a full serving of new wave electro-pop that broke with the anthemic single "Not A Love Song." But just as their momentum was building, a split with their label detached the band from all their support and management.
We take full responsibility for getting verbally upset with the flight attendant after being told it was a “family airline.” We were never told the reason the flight attendant approached us, we were only scolded that we “needed to be aware that Southwest Airlines was a family oriented airline.” No matter how quietly homophobia is whispered, it doesn’t make it any less loud. We ask this airline to teach their employees to not discriminate against any couple, ever, regardless of their own beliefs.
We want to live in a society where if your loved one leans over to give you an innocent kiss on an airplane it’s not labeled as “excessive or not family oriented” by a corporation and its employees.
But despite the new EP, a headlining gig at this year’s Dinah Shore in Palm Springs, and legions of devoted fans singing their praises on message boards around the world, one specific incident continues to haunt the band and it doesn’t seem to be going away.“It was the worst week of my life,” says Hailey of her and Grey’s September 2011 forcible removal from a Southwest Airlines flight for an alleged kiss they shared. “We woke up the next morning and on , they were talking about it.
“You were very new and you didn’t understand the power of the Tweet, I don’t think,” Grey says to Hailey.
We have always promoted tolerance, openness and equality both as a band and as individuals.
