"I really love this album" - Laurie Anderson, Art in America
Naked Light is the forthcoming full length album by Brooklyn artist and musician Grey Gersten. Working with producer Shahzad Ismaily, Gersten dismantles artifice and creates an intimate and visceral space where the power of vulnerability is revealed. Naked Light burns with the rawness of Neil Young and glows with the otherworldliness of Brian Eno.
For the past 10 years Grey Gersten has been active in NYC’s experimental rock and art community collaborating with an eclectic mix of revered artists including Tom Sachs, John Zorn, TV on The Radio and Michael Hurley. His latest work is Custom Melodies, an interactive multimedia website that features 110 biographical songs created with 110 strangers. Custom Melodies was featured in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Wall Street Journal, Gizmodo, Paste, Interview Magazine and other publications. Gersten recently performed at The David Bowie tribute concert at Radio City alongside artists Tony Visconti, Blondie, Michael Stipe, The Flaming Lips, Cat Power and The Pixies. Gersten created an original score for internationally acclaimed artist Tom Sachs’ 2016 feature film A Space Program. In 2014 Gersten released an outsider pop EP under the moniker ETERNAL LIPS featuring guest vocals from Sharon Van Etten and TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone. The EP received wide critical acclaim, Rolling Stone wrote "Gersten bends and contorts the idea of pop music, channeling his experimental music background into dreamy indie-pop.”
