Grafia plays in the Park.

"Grafia" can be likened to a three-legged stool. The three core musicians, Rob Maunsell, Keith Austin and Stephan Schulz are the supporting legs, the music they make, the seat.

Rob writes the songs and sings, plays acoustic rhythm guitar and harmonica. Musical direction, keyboard and bass playing are Keith's domains. He also sings backup vocals and produced the album. Stephan plays violin and recorder weaving his improvisational magic.

The music that makes up the seat of the Grafia stool is a collection of original lyrically based songs which have an attractive complexity. They fit comfortably in the Folk Rock genre. The band members come from diverse musical backgrounds. Stephan, the most devoted to the discipline of classical music, pursued violin and composition studies at University, now applies himself to the full-time teaching of music at a secondary school.

Keith played classical piano for many years before discovering the challenges and joys of playing in rock bands. He has also developed an expertise in repairing and tuning pianos/keyboards, composing and arranging music in several genres. Rob has brought his love of blues, folk and rock music to the task of writing the original songs and arranging the covers played by the band. He performs them with passion and personal expression, adding rhythm guitar and captivating harmonica playing.

The musical palate Grafia creates offers a delightful experience, the stories depicted in the songs speak for themselves, the instrumental musicality is enticing. Each performance is another step on the Grafia journey to develop and express an individual sound, share its musical visions, and tell stories that can be valued and related to.

The venue in Queen Elizabeth Park is magical with a friendly ambience and very good service by Keith Marshall and his team. It all makes for a wonderful afternoon out to enjoy good music, met friends and family and maybe even take a walk by the lake.
