Von Grey is an American alternative folk band from Atlanta, Georgia. The band is composed of four sisters; Kathryn (19), Annika (17), Fiona (16) and Petra (13).[1] Their self-titled EP, released in October 2012, was recorded with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Train, The Gaslight Anthem).

The sisters have played more than 200 shows, both headlining and as a support act for artists such as Sarah McLachlan. In 2012, they played a sold-out west coast tour with Lindsey Stirling, followed by an additional tour with Company of Thieves.

Von Grey made their network television debut in February 2013 on "The Late Show with David Letterman,"[2] followed by an appearance on "Rock Center with Brian Williams" in March 2013 [3] and "Conan" on April 2, 2013.[4]

"We are so grateful for it all," adds Fiona. "We have been honored to receive overwhelming support form so many directions. There are moments like when you hear the words 'von Grey' coming out of David Letterman's mouth- that makes it easy to take things for granted and forget how fortunate you truly are to be in those situations. We're really focused on trying to stay engaged and making sure that we are taking everything in,enjoying the moment, and actively appreciating the opportunities that come our way."

On January 21, 2014 Von Grey released their second EP "Awakening"[5]
