Greta Van Fleet is 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, 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.
When The Curtain Falls – the band’s first single from its debut album Anthem of the Peaceful Army – topped Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs – becoming the band’s third Number One hit – and has surpassed 9 million YouTube views.
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 have been on a wild ride of sold-out concerts in North America and Europe, racked up 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, Lava Records/Republic Records), debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales and Top Rock Albums charts, and at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. On December 7, the band awoke to find they had received four Grammy nominations – Best New Artist, Best Rock Song (“Black Smoke Rising”), Best Rock Album ( From The Fires EP), and Best Rock Performance (“Highway Tune”).
