ABOUT GRETA VAN FLEET:
Greta Van Fleet is four young musicians – twin brothers Josh (vocals) and Jake Kiszka (guitar), both 22, younger brother Sam (bass/keys, 20), and longtime family friend Danny Wagner (drums, 20). All are from the tiny Michigan hamlet of Frankenmuth known for its family-style chicken dinners and the world’s largest Christmas store. All four were raised on their parents’ extensive vinyl collections which helped give birth to the music they make today: a high-energy hybrid of rock’n’roll, blues and soul.
Since the March 2017 release of “Highway Tune,” the band’s first single that claimed the #1 spot at Rock Radio for five consecutive weeks, the four members of Greta Van Fleet have achieved three more #1 rock singles (“Safari Song,” “When The Curtain Falls,” and “You’re the One”). The group has also been on a wild ride of sold-out concerts around the world, racked up tens of millions of YouTube video plays and audio streams, received glowing accolades from iconic artists like Elton John, Dave Grohl, Joe Satriani, and Billy Corgan, and recorded two #1 EPs. The band’s debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army (10-19-18), entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales and Top Rock Albums charts at #1, and at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. On December 7, 2018, the band awoke to find they had received four Grammy nominations – Best New Artist, Best Rock Song (“Black Smoke Rising”), Best Rock Performance (“Highway Tune”), and Best Rock Album (From The Fires EP), which the band took home. Greta Van Fleet has made two late-night television appearances: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (7/26/18), and “Saturday Night Live” (1/19/19). Most importantly, Greta Van Fleet has been building an extraordinary connection with its fans.
Greta Van Fleet’s shared message with their music is to spread “peace, love, and unity,” and their collective goal is to have people walk out of their live shows feeling invigorated, energized and exhilarated, and to take that feeling out into the world.
