Griz

Today at age 24, GRiZ (or Grant Kwiecinski, to his mom) is already being hailed as visionary. This March 2015, he’ll release Say It Loud (via his All Good Records imprint), a follow-up to its more funk-step predecessors, Rebel Era and Mad Liberation. With assists from rapper Talib Kweli, Afrobeat-group Antibalas, the L.A.’s Children’s Chorus, and others, his new full-length finds a golden mean between an abundance of brass instruments, liberal use of soulful vocals, and shimmering, synth beats.

Previously supporting Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, and Big Gigantic on their respective tours, GRiZ has played festivals such as Coachella, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Lightning in a Bottle, Governor’s Ball, Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Parties, and more.

Thanks to his success he created his own label, All Good Records (formerly Liberated Music).
