About Grapetooth

Grapetooth is a Chicago-based duo comprised of musician/producer Chris Bailoni, popularly known as Home-Sick, and Twin Peaks lead singer/guitarist Clay Frankel. As for how the two met and started the project, an article by Noisey revealed, “Frankel and Bailoni had been acquaintances for years until they bonded in late 2015 at a bar over Spaceman 3, New Order, and Arthur Russell. ‘It definitely was a late night drunken thing where we’d yell at each other, 'let’s make music’ so I didn’t think anything was going to come of it until he hit me up next day and came over with his guitar,‘ remembers Bailoni while sipping an Old Style at Chicago’s iconic dive Rainbow Club. But while the two with no pressure wrote a couple songs together over the course of several rainy afternoons, they didn’t figure out their sound until they wrote “Trouble.” Frankel adds, 'It was pretty obvious that it worked. We weren’t going on too many cigarette breaks trying to figure out a song or a sound with that one.’ After they found a sound, they settled on the name Grapetooth, which Frankel explains came from Twin Peaks tour manager Peyton Copes making fun of him for drinking too much wine one night on tour.” As for the future of the project, Clay says the two of them have already recorded enough songs for a full-length album. “We’ll figure it out. Grapetooth is definitely going to be a band. We might play rarely, but just because I’m in another band doesn’t mean the shows we do aren’t going to be just as fun.” They have already played a handful of shows in Chicago, with Twin Peaks singer/guitarist Cadien Lake James on drums. Fans of both Twin Peaks and Home-Sick will surely anxiously await new music and tour dates from the fun new duo.
