Burned
Bio:
Fall From Grace is a Hard Rock Phoenix rising from the ashes of adversity. Each of the four band members are a walking testament to the saying “that which does not kill you, makes you stronger.” Creating music for the masses, each song is a story of struggle, and triumph.



Fall From Grace formed in the musical hotbed of Seattle Washington. However this punk-rock, foursome does not subscribe to the indie pop culture or grunge persona most are used to from the area. Instead, Fall From Grace live and play in the underbelly of the Seattle scene, hitting the hardcore clubs and breathing life into a new movement they are building, one that is breaking through with the help of acts like Aiden and Amber Pacific.



Fall from Grace’s gritty punk-rock sound is exemplified by their non-stop action packed live show. Front man Tryg commands the mob of psycho scenesters while singing songs with infectious melodies, brutal breakdowns and crowd clap choruses. Their music gives something to everyone. Although the subject matter is dark at times the display is up tempo and incites a dancing riot. This band has come together and faced the darkest of times but has spun it in a way that brings the message of hope and hard-core happiness to all who hear it.



Each of the four members of Fall From Grace has remained victorious against possible impending doom making this band their career and life focus. Ken Olson made it to every show and every daily practice while he was homeless and living out of his car. Drummer Kenny B signed up to serve in the US military but prior to even being able to serve in Iraq he became afflicted with health ailments and placed in a VA hospital in critical condition. As a soldier Kenny was forced to get inoculations for Small Pox and Anthrax, these vaccines turned against him giving him Epilepsy. To this day he suffers from seizures but works with Operation Ward 57 a group dedicated to the support of troops and the improvement of the conditions and environment at Walter Reed AMC. Singer, Tryg Littlefield has risen above early life issues. After divorcing his biological mother at the age of twelve due to mental and physical abuse, Tryg packed his bags to move in with his father and stepmother who became the pinnacle of strength in his life. Subsequently, Tryg has been leading a nomadic life. His wanderlust, love for touring and couch surfing ability was born from these years. His lack of family roots was the driving force that leads him to build Seattle’s musical community and reach out to his fans as family. Brian, the lead guitarist, and Ken Olson, on bass, share more in life than just being band mates. These brothers have unified to survive many mishaps, a tumultuous childhood in an impoverished environment, and a deadly car accident. In the middle of the night a drunk driver hit the car Brian was riding in. The car that struck them was traveling above the speed limit without their lights on and caused the car to spin out crushing the passenger side killing the opposing driver. Brian was pronounced dead on the scene however after 45 minutes of flat lining he awoke. Miraculously Brian came out of the accident without suffering brain damage, blindness or becoming paralyzed. After three weeks in the Trauma Intensive Care Unit and over a month of recovery he performs with vigour today. Faced with all of these challenges Fall From Grace has one goal and that goal is to rock your face off.
Lyrics to Burned:
Pick a side, you made your mind up long ago
The past is dead, but in your head it’s hard to let it go
Excuses made no longer will define you (define you)
Empty threats have hung you once again
With open eyes you tranquilize your confidence
Room is black no looking back, the cost of self expense
Step away and look inside your sickness (sickness)
And realize you’re all alone



When the world that you created
Makes you fall face down and meet your bitter end
And you’re sifting through the wreckage
You can build it up or burn it down again



Lined up all your sins and then you shot them one by one
You sacrificed your common sense, it’s over said and done
Deception and disaster always find you (find you)
And leave you dying all alone



In the darkest shadow, will you find your way
Is there hope or are you stuck here in this
World that you created, when you fall face down and meet your bitter end
And you’re sifting through the wreckage
You can build it up or burn it down again
