Grey Reverend: Songs, Skateboards, and Heroes' Lies

Composer and singer L.D. Brown records as Grey Reverend, and his songs display his reverence for the grey areas of emotion and musical style. It's not easy to pigeonhole Grey Reverend, but it's easy to enjoy his songs, whether he's accompanied by The Cinematic Orchestra, as is sometimes the case, or if he's all on his own with guitar, as he is here when David Garland welcomes Grey Reverend to WNYC for this in-studio performance and conversation. Along with songs from his new album, A Hero's Lie, Grey Reverend brings us his thoughts and observations on flawed heroes, skateboarding, racism, songwriting, and much more.
