Johnny Lane in Caldwell, Ryan Green in Nampa and Don Martinez from Caldwell began playing together in January 2010, calling themselves "Goathead". Needing a bass player, they picked up Dan Longstreet from Middleton, in May of 2010. They started by playing several shows and parties that summer and soon changed their name to "Grindsole" for no more reason than it wasn't already taken, and "Goathead" was.
They recorded their first C.D. titled "Ready To Live", completing it in April 2011. Don went to jail in June of 2011 but the band had some good shows scheduled that they would rather not cancel so they turned to Dan's son David Longstreet, a very talented young drummer. They were able to keep their great shows such as opening for HURT and TRAPT at the Knitting Factory in Boise and in the meantime they were able to get into some great events such as, headlining Rock The Block in Caldwell, an annual benefit concert for Idaho Diabetes Youth Programs in June and they are honored to be part of Rock The Mountain every summer in July, with 2014 being RTM's 17th year. Among many other great parties and Benefits.
In 2013 the creative juices were flowing for these four guys, they were beginning to form quite a list of electric songs but were evolving their music into acoustic melodies at the same time. With so many songs being created, they are now able to play an incredibly long set for any event or concert and now they need to hit the studio to begin the process for their second record "Fire and Ice". This record has 5 electric songs and 4 acoustic songs and has been very popular. Their CD release show was a big hit when they shared the Knitting Factory stage with No Resolve, Pause For The Cause and Deadly Sinz where they nearly sold out of copies!
It is exciting to think what the next year will bring for these young men of Grindsole. Stay tuned for more recording and video.
