Grant Gilbert is a young, hustling front man for a five-piece band. Gilbert is ostensibly country, but really so much more. Classic rock, the blues, and Southern rock are all ingrained in an energetic, powerful package. That spirit is evident in Gilbert’s forthcoming EP, an intense musical workout that mirrors his band’s college-town beginnings. Once they enrolled at Texas Tech, Gilbert and Price started showing up at open mic nights and grew into a full-fledged band.
