Before Trey Gruber’s songwriting potential could be realized with his band Parent, a years-long battle with addiction tragically paused his trajectory. Since his passing, Gruber’s partner Jessica Viscius and his mother have combed the hundreds of unreleased and unfinished recordings and compiled them into a posthumous collection, Herculean House of Cards, a 26-song, double LP covering years of the young Chicago artist’s home recordings, studio sessions, and audio captured during his last live performance at The Hideout with net proceeds from the record being donated to Gateway Foundation treatment center.
