In 2012, Ben Grenier (also known as Dutch) started taking local Hip Hop to the next level. Based out of his hometown in Meriden, Connecticut, “Dutch the Dreamer” was born. After two years of developing his vocal flows and producing beats for himself and other local artists in his free time, Dutch has fallen into a world of adventure and creativity.
In his music he speaks about experiences with drug abuse, life lessons, human emotions and love. His songs have been described as psychedelic-alternative Hip Hop by fans, which is a direct interpretation of his influences. Dutch’s musical stylings can be traced back to Hip Hop legend KiD CuDi, alternative rock band Modest Mouse, and psychedelic rock masters Pink Floyd.
Dutch’s first song to receive radio airplay came from his track “Good Weather” in 2013 and has seen plays on Connecticut FM station HOT 93.7, and Sirius Satellite Radio on station Shade 45, he has performed 38 shows to date which included DJ Meechie’s Fresh Faces Tour, and the Team Inkredible Unsigned Explosion Tour. Dutch has also stepped into the clothing and is now sponsored by; The Silver City Chiefs, and The Highest Culture Clothing both out of CT
Dutch will be releasing his first EP entitled Insomnia in September 2014, which features thirteen songs written by Dutch and produced by various local artists from around the Connecticut area and also features a series of artwork along with the EP. His first single off Insomnia entitled “Hot Box the Whip” is currently available on iTunes now
