The True Loves, an 8 piece instrumental Soul group out of Seattle, WA that got their start during the summer of 2015 when drummer, David McGraw, began organizing jam sessions with bassist Bryant Moore and guitarist Jimmy James. The group would organize at a venue, in most cases the infamous Seamonster Lounge, and improvise grooves and melodies on the spot for hours on end. The band performed (and still occasionally does) under the name “Horse & Tiger Presents” – from gig to gig the players rotated in and out until a solid lineup was reached. Guitarist Jimmy James met Grace Love, a heavy hitting vocalist with a deep and true feel and uncanny ability to improvise song lyrics on the spot. Songs started flowing and soon after the band was in the studio recording their debut album ‘Grace Love & the True Loves’. The album features such radio hits as ‘Fire’, ‘Nobody Sweeter’ and the classic ballad, ‘Mean to Me’ and was #19 on KEXP’s Top 100 Albums of 2015 list.
