The first single from one of 2010 rock revelations. The new band from 3 members of LIVE (Chad Taylor, Patrick Delheimer and Chad gracey) and 2 original members of Candlebox (kevin Martin and Sean Henney)

The Gracious Few (TGF) is an American rock band featuring guitarist Chad Taylor, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer and drummer Chad Gracey from the band Live, along with lead vocalist Kevin Martin and guitarist Sean Hennesy from the band Candlebox.

The Gracious Few is the debut studio album by rock supergroup The Gracious Few. Drummer Chad Gracey explained the album's sound, "We knew we wanted to be a little harder than what Live had been doing and even what Candlebox had been doing. Chad Taylor comes up with a lot of the riffs that we start the songs from and he was just playing this real sort of heavy, bluesy stuff. Once we heard that we were like, 'Wow, this is kind of a Led Zeppelin, throwback feel' and it just sort of happened. We didn't consciously decide...those were just the songs that started flowing."

The first single released was "Honest Man". Singer Kevin Martin said of the song, "It reminds me of my father. He was a World War II veteran. He believed in the American dream with all his heart, he was the honest man of his generation. Now I turn on the television and see Americans without jobs, without food and without a chance to help themselves. This song is a wake up call to the forces of the world who would dare to stand in the way of our ability to provide for ourselves."

Allmusic gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, in a generally positive review. They hinted at the difficulty in creating a 'classic rock' album without sounding 'dated' by saying that the band, "Have crafted a note of fondness (not quite a love letter) to '70s hard rock that has enough post-grunge radio polish on it to keep things in perspective."
