"...I was quite taken aback by the sounds of the Valley Theory EP
by the underground Canadian rockers Graven. As opposed to
reaching out for the anthemic pop heights of its countrymen and
women, these guys have opted for reinventing and revisiting some
solid ‘90s Midwestern rock. If not for regular references to
Northern touchstones like Halifax, the Northern Lights, and the
Lodestar, Graven could easily and deservedly be mistaken for yet
another hard-working bar rock band from the American Midwest."
-Adam P. Newton, Dryvetyme Online
The newest release from Matt McKechnie's brainchild (and manchild)
of Graven. The founding fathers rock hard on this 5 song EP that lets
the listener know that there is more to come. As the entity of Graven
is representative of a journey, 'Valley Theory' gives a layout of the
upcoming landscape for the 5 man electrical mash. With the latest
lineup of his band in tow (including the additions of O no!'s Owen
Edwards, Landon Kotchapaw and old Crushing Shelbyville drummer
Paul Godin switching modes to 2nd lead electric guitar), Matt's voice
never cut deeper through the slate of the Canadian Shield on this tale
of sadness, rejoicing and electrical wizardry.
