Grand Old Grizzly is a Texas-based, Americana/Alt-Country band from Houston. They have received local acclaim including multiple Houston Press Music Award nominations (Best Americana, Best New Band) as well as being asked to open for national touring acts such as as BlackBerry Smoke, Leon Russell, Rodney Crowell, and Soulhat.
The sound of Grand Old Grizzly falls somewhere in that grand genre of Americana, with cleverly crafted songs, a blend of Folk/Indie/Rock/Country influenced instrumentation and strong vocal harmonies. The unique musical experiences that each band member brings to Grand Old Grizzly creates a sound that is welcoming to people who might normally prefer other types of musical genres.
Their sophomore release ("CosmoNada") is available as of Feb. 2015.
