WRIF presents


September 15 at the Majestic

grandson is an alternative artist whose mix of rock, hip-hop and electronica has been making waves in the indie music scene since 2016 and we’re pumped to welcome him to the Majestic on September 15!

Born in New Jersey before being raised in Toronto, the singer/songwriter’s musical inspirations include Rage Against The Machine, Bob Marley, Ray Charles, John Lennon and Nirvana.

In April 2018 grandson was signed to the Fueled by Ramen record label, after releasing the singles “Blood // Water”  (which appeared on multiple Billboard charts) and “Thoughts & Prayers”.

His EP “A Modern Tragedy Vol. 2” is out now

Grandson is an alternative artist hailing from Toronto, Canada. Born in the small town of Englewood New Jersey, he relocated to the cultural melting pot of Toronto at a young age and grew up surrounded by music ranging from jazz and rock & roll to rap, dancehall and R&B. Searching for his voice and for meaning in today’s divisive, chaotic world, grandson confronts the most pressing issues of his generation through his songwriting, such as financial inequality, governmental, environmental accountability and social justice, giving these topics a soundtrack with a genuine sense of urgency and frustration. His music also touches on adolescence, relationships and the insecurities and difficulties of growing up through your 20s. When asked about today’s music scene, he says: “I genuinely believe the world needs honest rock & roll, now more than ever”.
