Grateful Shred & Circles Around the Sun


Grateful Shred / Bio 2023
After a meteoric rise from obscurity to a national touring band, Los Angeles-based
Grateful Shred has made the most of its time in the spotlight. The lineup, featuring Dan
Horne and Austin McCutchen alongside keyboardist Adam MacDougall woke the
Grateful Dead cosmos with a unique laid-back harmony driven sound. The band
literally went from playing the Shakedown Street vendor area prior to Dead and
Company shows to touring the United States.
The moment that sent the band’s popularity soaring is the “Busted at the Bowl” video,
a YouTube video that features Shred members starting an impromptu set in the parking
lot of the Hollywood Bowl before a Dead and Company show in 2017. They don’t get
too far before drawing so much attention that the police shut them down. Instantly
creating Shred-cred, this was a bit of good fortune that doesn’t get past McCutchen.
“We’ve been dealt some pretty good cards,” he states. “It’s been cool to roll with it and
push forward and continually make stuff happen. Things have gone our way. Even that
video happened magically. It was put together at the last minute, and boom!”
The thing is, Grateful Shred manage to channel that elusive Dead vibe: wide-open
guitar tones, effortless three-part vocal harmonies, choogling beats, and yes, plenty of
tripped out, Shredded solos. The look, the sound, the atmosphere. It’s uncanny. Far
from being a historical re-enactment, Grateful Shred’s laissez faire vibe infuses the
band with a gentle spirit, warmth, and (dare we say it) authenticity. From their killer
merch game to their eminently watchable YouTube channel, they’re clearly having a rad
time and spreading the love. Strangely enough, in a world overflowing with wax
museum nostalgia and Deadly sentimentalism, we need the Shred, now more than
Grateful Shred is: Austine Beede, Dan Horne, Alex Koford, Zeph Ohora, Adam
MacDougall, Austin McCutchen, John Lee Shannon
