Graham Whorley

For two and a half years, Graham has been diligently working on “World Wrapped in Chain” a social restoration project which kicks off with a musical album. Graham was actively touring in the U.S. and preparing for a tour in the UK when the pandemic hit, causing his US tour dates to be canceled, and foreshadowing the cancellation of his UK tour, which inevitably was canceled twice. So, what did Graham do? What he does best! He retreated into the studio to create. And create he did! When he emerged from months on end in the studio writing thought-provoking lyrics, and creating amazing beats, the result was 15 refreshing, riveting conscious-minded “anthems”. Each track portrays its own perspective of current events from the Pandemic, to Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality and injustices, to other societal systemic issues plaguing the world we live in today. WORLD WRAPPED IN CHAIN offers an up close view into cultural issues through its conscious-minded theme. Mixing Jazz, Rock, Funk, Hip Hop, Blues, Americana, Reggae, and just about every other genre you can think of. It’s sure to be a classic for your collection. Graham wrote, performed, recorded, mixed, and played all instruments on the album, excluding the title track, “World Wrapped in Chain” which features Karl Anderson on drums. The album also includes the controversial D.C. rap artist, 5th Ward Butta, who is featured on the track “Pacemaker Peacemaker”. The World Wrapped in Chain Social Restoration Project will also include a documentary, highlighting the making of the album during the Pandemic and beyond. A WWIC musical production may also be in the works in the future. Pre-sale available September 9th 2022. Official release is September 30th and will be available on all music platforms, including but not limited to: Spotify, YouTube, (etc).
