7-time Grammy Award winner Paul Wertico (Pat Metheny Group, Larry Coryell, Randy Brecker, Jerry Goodman, Ramsey Lewis, David Bowie, Charlie Haden, Jeff Berlin, Kurt Elling…), David Cain (Geffen Records, Stan Kenton, Roque Cordero, Steve Jobs, Deepak Chopra…), and Larry Gray (McCoy Tyner, Jack DeJohnette, Branford Marsalis, Ramsey Lewis, Donald Byrd, Chicago Symphony…) came together to form Wertico Cain & Gray to realize new music and art, winning a prestigious live performance album award along the way, and gathering audiences in search of new worlds of sound-making and digital cinema.
Chicago-based, this spontaneous trio composes and orchestrates everything in real-time, melting acoustic and electronic sounds with new-tech and word-tech, in-sync with an inner muse that connects to the universe of possibilities, and musically conversing to the point of sheer telepathy.
