About Torn Shorts
Torn Shorts, (is) an indie/folk/blues band from Providence, displaying a talent for borrowing and breaking-in the classic sounds of American music: Cobain’s water chorus, Dylan’s half-spoken plea, Muddy Waters’ howled licks. -Freya Wilcox, NYC Feast of Music
“Torn Shorts is made of simple chords and deceptively simple lyrics. But they paint a picture of Americana music pure and true to the area they call home.” -Bradley Campbell, Rhode Island Public Radio
Torn Shorts is best known as 2013 WBRU Rock Hunt Winners. Their latest album ‘Through The Mill’ was released in January 2013 and features an interesting blend of blues, folk, rock and alternative influence. Although, they’ve had a significant lineup change over the course of 2013 the band still sticks to its roots but with a little more jazz and funk flavor in the sound. They are currently a trio featuring Josh Grabert (guitar, vocals), Zach Zarcone (bass), Chris Ardoin (drums). They live and play music in Providence, RI.
