Greta Van Fleet
Greta Van Fleet is comprised of four young musicians - twin brothers Josh (vocals) and Jake Kiszka (guitar), both 22, younger brother Sam (bass/keys, 19), and longtime family friend Danny Wagner (drums, 19). 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.
2017, Greta Van Fleet’s first year as a professional band was a wild ride of sold-out concerts in North America and Europe, glowing press, accolades from a slew of fellow artists from Elton John to Nikki Sixx to Robert Plant to Slash, millions of YouTube video plays and Spotify streams, two #1 singles at Rock Radio and two #1 EPs, and most importantly, the genesis of an extraordinary connection with their fans.
On August 15, 2018 the band released a brand new single, “When The Curtain Falls,” that took a mere three weeks to explode into the Top 10 at Rock Radio, accumulate more than 10-million streams, and one million-plus views of the track’s companion music video. Greta Van Fleet's debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, was released on October 19, 2018 (Lava/Republic Records).
From a rocking SNL performance on the first episode of the season to a sold- out global tour, 2019 is shaping up to be the band's most exciting year yet. At the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, Greta Van Fleet took home their first Grammy for Best Rock Album, From the Fires, after receiving four nominations in total (Best New Artist, Best Rock Song for "Black Smoke Rising," Best Rock Performance for "Highway Tune," and Best Rock Album for the band’s double EP, From The Fires).
