Tell Me - Acoustic (April, 2021)
For the history of The Grift series, year 2006, Peter and Clint put together a video of a deep cut called "Tell Me". It was a song we played live a ton in that year. It was a song with a lot of energy that was (and still is) a ton of fun to play live. It features a killer solo by Clint on the acoustic guitar, and some amazing lyrics and harmony by Peter, with the best ending yet. Make sure to head over to the history section of our website to check out our memories and photos as well if you are interested!

The song for 2004 in our history series is called In Between Takes from The Grift's release, Life Beyond Aluminum. This is a great acoustic rendition of the song, performed by Peter and Clint.
2004 was a big year for the band with recording and release of this 11 song album. It was the lineup of Clint, Peter, Jeff and Neil, with the help of producers Gary Mallaber, Dave Koltai and Greg Tobler (who also engineered). Recorded at Audio Magic studios in Buffalo, NY, the band rented a house next door and lived there for the entire month of June that year to be fully immersed in the recording process.
