Publisher, CEO (Toronto, ON, Canada)
- One day back in 2005, I got drunk with a friend and we decided to stop working on our then-active socio-political website, but continue to do something in the world of web. Heavy music was one of our common interests and within a few months, PureGrainAudio was born. What began as a hobby has grown into way more than we could have ever expected. Now, all we want is global media domination. Full stop.

Zane Brammell

Photographer/Writer (Nicholasville, KY, Canada)
- Zane’s devoted interest in music began at an early age. Surrounded by music fans of different eras, he was raised on a variety of genres from classic rock n roll, to pop, to metal. A fascination with a lifestyle in music developed, and as he grew up (and out), it eventually blossomed into what would become a short music career in his hometown Lexington, KY scene before ultimately deciding to focus on his other passion: photography. With a love of music and an itch to shoot, it only made sense to combine the two. (He still plays guitar and will ALWAYS be the first to join in if you need someone to shittily mumble their way through “Wonderwall.”) You can catch him sipping drinks at a show before the next band goes on, or you’ll find him at home watching The Office with his wife Haley, and their son, Jude.
