THE GRIND THEORY describes his music as a little bit of Hall&Oates ridin shotgun with Quincy Jones, Supermodels from outer space, Marty Mcfly and the beastie Boys in a Delorean. “I just love good music and people are craving it, and I believe I can give them what they want and still have fun and do whatever I want.
He Describes his sound as a mixture of 70’s, 80’s, soul and pop and 90’s alternative rock.” I have an AM FM
radio and I got it for 50 cents at a thrift store because music really sucks right now, and I’m going to try my hardest to harness the essence of the music me and the people of my age group grew up listening to.
