Cannot say THANK YOU enough to all of you who have so generously supported my kickstarter campaign! Forever grateful and moved by your love and support.
"Back to California," my third original release, explores the disillusionment of young adulthood and the intensity of adolescent friendship. We've all had those friends along the way who stood by our side as we grew up and figured out who we were. Here's to them. And to us.

Pay what you can afford, or nothing at all. Every dollar makes a difference!

My heartfelt thanks to all the "GrandFam" worldwide, who continue to believe in me and make all this possible! Your love and support has changed my life...I love you back!!!

Because of social media and other technologies, artists and fans can have a much closer relationship than in the past...and it's no longer necessary to sign your life away to a major record label, in order to get your music heard! I've chosen to build my own team and create my own "record label" called, "Grand Nation." We're still small, and we can't always respond to everyone as quickly as a big company would, so please be patient with us. (Thank you!) Here's a list of contacts to the people on my team who can help you...
General Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
Booking Agent: email@example.com
Business & Legal Affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org
Steve Grand Store: email@example.com
If you'd like to contact me directly, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will probably take awhile for me to respond, but please be patient. Eventually, I see all of the e-mails I receive ;)
