He assembled a bar band while attending UC Santa Barbara, put all of the tips from his restaurant job into a jar, and used it to record a pop/rock album. After some layovers in LA and Oakland, Grover and his recently formed family returned to Murphys to reconnect with the small mountain atmosphere that provided such inspiration as a youth. Living in California’s vastly varying environments provided ample material for his next two albums, which Grover self-produced. “Moonshine”, the opening track on the mostly-acoustic Tourniquet (2011), has grown into a fan favorite since its original recording as a duet with LA artist Samantha Free, with over 715k streams on Spotify & Pandora. While recording The Optimist (2014), which includes love songs like “Little Spoon” and “Sick of You” and more tragic ballads “The Lampolier” and “Grindstone", Grover assembled the finest musicians he knew to create a diverse collection of songs, from country, rock, bluegrass, jazz, and alt-indie.
His most recent project, From the Pink Room, is a collection of acoustic songs that Grover recorded at his home studio deep in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Grover’s true passion is live performance. Whether performing solo with his acoustic guitar or with the full band behind him, he channels musical heroes like Garth Brooks and Josh Ritter, leaving everything he has on stage. He is a passionate performer who grows his fanbase with every gig, be it for a wine bar of thirty or an amphitheater of thousands. Read more on Last.fm.
