Grant Glad & The Trumpeteers came together mostly by accident. Late last year, frontman Grant Glad enlisted several other Minneapolis-based musicians to help record his debut record, A Place No One Belongs, without the intention of forming a full-time band.
Immediately it was clear that together, this group of musicians produced a truly unique and special sound. Influenced by everyone from John Prine to Bruce Springsteen and beyond, Grant’s blue-collar songwriting and down-to-earth approach to storytelling fit perfectly with the distinctive styles of violinist/vocalist Kristi Hatterschide, drummer/percussionist Robin Hatterschide, and multi-instrumentalist Erik Loftsgaarden of Erik Loftsgaarden & The Whiskey War. Simply put, the resulting art was too much to walk away from after one studio album.
The lead single, “Dancing at the VFW” evokes memories of a bygone era, the halcyon days of going dancing on Friday night and forgetting all of your worries for just a few hours…until the reality of aging inevitably catches up. Their debut record, A Place No One Belongs is set to be released April 12, 2019 on vinyl, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music. Armed with the new record and a collective passion for creating and performing honest, original, gritty music, Grant Glad & The Trumpeteers is primed to become a force in the renowned Minneapolis/St. Paul DIY music scene.
