Sammy Hale will release album Aug. 6

By on July 13, 2016

Pre-release party set for July 16

Shane Graybill, a Central Pennsylvania native with a love for traveling, has been making his own unique style of music under the name Cult Choir for the past four years. Recently he’s decided to retire that moniker with the birth of his new alt-country/folk rock project, Sammy Hale (the name is a combination of nicknames taken from his late grandfathers).

Planning on releasing his debut full length album “Post Cult” on Aug. 6, Shane has taken all of his “old timey” influences such as Patsy Cline and The Everly Brothers and molded it into something that’s completely his own. A couple of his friends (Emily Siegrist of What’s Her Face and Mike Heller of Smoky Willows) lent their voices and musical talent on a few songs, but otherwise, everything else is completely written, recorded, and released by him.

Shane will be previewing most of his new tunes in the pavilion at Foxchase Golf Course, 300 Stevens Road, Stevens, on July 16, starting at 6 p.m. The show is open to the public, and offers free snacks and discounted drinks. Smoky Willows will also be performing.

An album release show is planned for Single File, in Lancaster, on Aug 6. The concert will also feature the bands Spill and See Through Dresses.

Sammy Hale’s music can be found on Youtube, Bandcamp, and Soundcloud. Visit his Facebook page at
