Classy Mongrel (aka Grant Short), is becoming widely known for his self- produced ingenuity & as one of Kentucky's most creative musicians. He began reading/playing music in primary school which came natural to him, as his family roots are in east KY bluegrass. Now, he is a one man band. He plays all his songs solo using every synth that has mattered, all the instruments you hear, a sampler, and with a love for DJ'ing, he then re-mixes with effects. To do this in the studio with many takes is one thing, to see him do it all himself live, is very much another. When asked what sound he strives for, he laughs and says, "I strive for the most unifying cause on Earth: to feel like one is driving at night, with the top down on a sports car, in the 80's." Indeed. Common comparisons include: Neon Indian, Washed Out, Toro Y Moi, Animal Collective, Radiohead, and Chemical Brothers.
