Late last year I got a chance to work with a client who was introduced to a unique musician. Unique is sometimes used to describe something as different without sounding mean. This time unique was used to describe a rare jewel. I was told his music was different, sampling from many wells but it wasn’t just a mindless hodgepodge. It was informed, directed, and intentional. I was intrigued, and heard a sample of the music that would eventually become the album Away and Into the Blue and I was impressed. The GRS has created a sonic palate that is creative and accessible, creating stories with singing, rapping, and a tapestry of sound that engulfs you while taking you on a journey.
The GRS released his album recently and I invite to you check it out. It’s available on AppleMusic, iTunes, Soundcloud, and Spotify and other streaming sites. Connect with him on his website, which I put together for him, and also check out some of the photos from our session below.
