Elements of Style


Elements of Style started out as a solo project by Suburban Soul's lead guitarist Gram Wire. After leaving Suburban Soul in late 2010, Wire began writing an 11 song full length album containing multiple genres which would later become Elements of Style's debut album "Waves".

After tracking was finished and the album was mastered by legendary engineer Rodney Mills (.38 Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rage Against The Machine), Wire decided the project needed to be a full group instead of a solo project. He enlisted numerous musicians that entered and left the band until finding the current lineup which consists of drummer and percussionist David Goodwin, bassist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Greene Ball, and front-man Zach Fortner (A.K.A Zach Fortnight).

The group’s diverse influences include Rage Against the Machine, Sublime, Nirvana, Minutemen, The Ramones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Queens of the Stone Age, Gorillaz, MGMT, Love and Rockets and Bauhaus, Immortal Technique, KRS One, 2 Chainz, Run the Jewels and Big K.R.I.T.
