Barry Gray gets ready to play for The State of Things' live audience in Greensboro.

Barry Gray’s debut release is the culmination of a family man’s slow-burning reflections.

The Burlington singer-songwriter was awarded the North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship in Songwriting in 2018, which supported the production of the album. The record includes collaborations with 17 other local musicians, including Rebecca Newton.

Alongside Bruce Piephoff, Abigail Dowd, and Chris Myers, Barry hosts a monthly Songwriters Session on Sundays from 4-6 at the Upstage Cabaret.

Grant Holub-Moorman coordinates events and North Carolina outreach for WUNC, including a monthly trivia night. He is a founding member of Embodied and a former producer for The State of Things.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
