Duh Album Cover 3

After a decade spent as a decorated live rock guitarist, sharing stages with artists spanning the width and breadth of the music industry, such as Portugal. The Man, The Florida-Georgia Line and Sublime with Rome, singer-guitarist Mikei Gray had something different in mind when he started The Frst in late 2017.

“Freedom and fun were the goals with this project, so as a mission statement there is no I in The Frst.” – Mikei Gray

Since that time, The Frst has received international acclaim for a combination of driving guitars, pinpoint melodic injections and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, with recent single “Ammo” peaking at #1 on the Soundcloud New & Hot Rock USA Chart.

“Full of angst-ridden vocals and heavy guitar riffs that are very much keeping grunge alive.” – Alternative Press Magazine

The Frst continues to push the envelope and stand out from the crowd at almost every juncture, be it with an original and enticing blend of influence from hard rock, pop and hip-hop or the groundbreaking new Augmented Reality App that accompanied recent single “Simulation”.

“Radiant backing harmonies imbue the tune with glowing depth and dimension, emphasizing the delicious sonic pressure of the song.” – Tattoo

Mixed by Grammy winning Steve Hardy (Jay Z & Alicia Keys), The Frst’s new single, “DUH” is a high-octane, rifftastic headbanger, with a damning assessment on the current political climate.

“DUH” is out now on Spotify and Soundcloud.
