This year has been particularly difficult. Too many times I've felt sick to my stomach watching the news or talking with my friends about what's going on in the world. It seems like I can't get a break from bad news. All this senseless violence, political unrest, cultural tension ... got me feelin down..and often...helpless.
I ask myself often what I can do to help out. So, I wrote this album as a reminder to me and to you that there is SO MUCH GOOD in this world! I urge you, focus on our collective LOVE and RIGHTEOUSNESS. It's up to us to keep that alive. Keep your head held high. I know things look real real bad right now, but no matter how dark it may seem or how discouraged you may feel, never ever give up!
don't curse the darkness, be a light,
Good Will Prevail!
It's some crazy rock / soul / blues / electronic hybrid..
Check it out!
This song is about addiction and letting go. Leo did an amazing job writing and I'm happy I was able to bring this to life. It really hits home to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as it has helped me
So much love,
My new album Say It Loud is out right funking now !!
DOWNLOAD / STREAM to the album HERE. on my website.
Say It Loud is an album that took me all around the United States recording sounds from funk jam sessions to children's choirs, trumpet solos in the forest to saxophone lines in the boiler room of my house - it is an album for everyone. This music is meant to be experienced, danced to, sang along with, felt… that's what it's all about.
Just one last peek at the album before its release on March 31st... This is a groovy chilled out cut with Talib Kweli dropping the verse. Enjoy!

RED ROCKS!!! Team GRiZ is coming for you Sept. 4th to bring you the funkiest dance party we've ever thrown!! It is such an honor to be able to headline one of the most amazing venues in the world this year! Ever since I went to my first Red Rocks show (and the many I had seen since then), this has been such a huge goal for me.
So.. we really wanted to throw the show with my good friends: The Floozies, Manic Focus, SunSquabi, and Muzzy Bearr! I have personally worked on music with each and every one of those dudes, and I cannot wait to hear them to blow it up proper! This will be the biggest show yet for us; and when our team is given the opportunity to do something big, we do it funkin BIG! -- ask anyone who went to grizmas smile emoticon
