GRiZ is a Michigan-born electronic music producer and musician who has attracted an enormous live following, regularly playing major festivals and selling out headlining tours. Referring to his music as “future funk,” GRiZ produces glitchy, energetic tracks with booming dubstep bass and elements of jazz, hip-hop, and soul. He is famously know for his saxophone performance when preforming live.
Born Grant Kwiecinski in Southfield, Michigan in 1990, he began playing the saxophone and piano as a youth, and dropped out of Michigan State University in order to pursue a career as a musician. His debut album, End of the World Party, was released in 2011 followed by Mad Liberation, Rebel Era, Say It Loud and Good Will Prevail in 2012, ’13, ’15 and ’16 respectively. His fifth and most “funky” album to date Good Will Prevail featured guest appearances from Eric Krasno, Big Gigantic, Muzzy Bear, and others.
