Erin Grand~ Q&A!!!

  1. Hello Erin, can you tell us all a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician?  Looking back on my life before music, well, there wasn’t anything but music really. I grew up always playing music or involved someway in it. Before i moved to Nashville from Lakeville, Minnesota i never had a job. I was always paid to play my music which is definitely something i miss haha.

          2. What made you want a career in country music? I started realizing about halfway through my high school career back in Minnesota that academics were not my strong suit. I knew music was what I always wanted to do, but assumed I needed to go to college first. I was told by my family and teachers that college wasn’t for everyone and that it would be in my best interest to move to Nashville. Once I had that affirmation, I knew right then and there that going into music as an artist was exactly what I needed to do, but also seeing all the artists I look up to doing what I wanted to do really made me want to chase the dream as well.                         

3. Who are some of your musical icons? I have so many but my top 3 are probably Maren Morris, Keith Urban and Bruno Mars)

4. What is your recording process like when creating and making new music? The recording process for me is the most exciting. I feel like I get my most creative once I get into a studio. Im extremely comfortable in a studio as well so I feel like the process all in all goes pretty quick and smooth. It typically starts in the morning and ends by then end of the day for an EP project.

5. How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words? I like to say its Soulful, Cheeky, Sexy, Fun. and unapologetic. I speak my mind and sing what I want and its the realm when you hear what you hear!

6. What are a few of your favorite venues to play at? In Nashville I would say The Listening Room and in Minnesota I would say The Troubadour Wine Bar

7. What is one of your favorite quotes? I don’t know who said this but I always live by it. “play every show to the best of your ability because In that audience is someones first show and someone’s last show…”

Erin Grand- Artist Spotlight!!!

Music artist Erin Grand, all trails led to a career in music from the beginning. Grand was born and raised just outside of the Twin Cities (a place that merrily isn’t commonly known to host a big population of country fans, the pop/country singer, whose new single “Lonely Does” came out on August 28, 2021. The song is delightfully driven by a piece in the performance arts. Grand shares that “she never really excelled in school, it just wasn’t her thing. She all shared she never had a full-time job that didn’t involve music. It’s what I was put  here to do.”

Grand grew up in a family that celebrated music and supported her dreams, she first discovered her appreciation of singing at 8 years old, she started finding her land in the country music category soon after. Her parents raised her on both country and rock and roll, which Grand is forever thankful for. Like others, she started performing in church, joining a youth band as a head singer. Then, her talents were called by the church’s adult worship team. Next, Grand sang in a secular pop band, which later became a duo. Grand mentions it was a “bit of a balancing act: some people at church weren’t too keen on her performing in a secular band on the side. It was the best of both worlds, and she was able to do what she loved full time. She paid to sing, it didn’t get much better than that.”

The trends moved, though, when her duo partner decided on another career path and Grand would next become a solo artist. She had learn to play by herself and was starting to learned how to play the guitar but still needed some practice. Also, she started working on her songwriting skills. Her first few songs were not so good, but she knew she had to start somewhere. Grand also started taking monthly trips to Nashville, becoming part of Music City’s never-ending talent group to showcase her melodic and lyrical skills. During one of her trips, Grand was asked to join the notable group Song Suffragettes (a group of female singers who love supporting one another in their musical careers). 

In February 2020, Grand moved to Nashville and was directly met with an altered version of what life in music would look like when the COVD-19 global pandemic  created the industry to come to a screeching halt. It was hard, but she kept moving in a forward direction. She made friends from her many trips down. So she up a lot Zoom writes. It wasn’t planned, but it kept her in  the game. Some of Grand’s favorite artists are Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars. Grand continued to develop her sound, which she calls “pop country with a lot of soul. Grand also likes to write about what could be made up of things, such as imaging things in a way that most individuals would dream of wanting in their own lives. 

From the co-writes came sizzling, lively first single “Mood” (October 2020), next came easy-going, funny upbeat single “Better With Wine (July 2021). As Grand continues to put out new music, aided by a team entirely made of women. Grand’s different vocal tenor and strength, joined with honest (and sometimes witty) songwriting keep bringing in new fans and put her as one of the industry’s most up and coming talents in the country music world.
