Grateful Shred features a loose-knit circle of Los Angeles’ top studio session musicians. The permanent Shredders and core four “first call” players are bass player extraordinaire Dan Horne (Circles Around The Sun, Jonathan Wilson, Cass McCombs), vocalist-guitarist Austin McCutchen (The Western Stars, The Velvet Bonebreakers) and vocalists and guitar rippers Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch (both of Mapache).
Melodic folk-rock duo from La Cañada Flintridge, California and based in Los Angeles. The two memebrs met while they were both attending La Cañada High School. Sharing a fondness for bluegrass, The Band, Neil Young and The Grateful Dead they formed a group, the Melvin Doo, that regularly played in local coffeehouses. They broke up in 2011 when Finch went to college at Chico State, while Blasucci took part in a mission trip to Saltillo, Mexico. However, they stayed in touch and in 2016, after they relocated to Los Angeles, they began playing together as Mapache, which means raccoon in Spanish.
