With a name like The Grand, this rock group has no option but to deliver an impressive album and energetic onstage performance. The Grand is comprised of talented Vancouver musicians; Dallas Norrie on vocals, Anthony Fiddler and Ryan Stead on guitars and backing vocals, and Jonny Wiebe on drums.
Norrie and Wiebe were introduced by Stead, guitar player for The Latency and producer of The Grand’s debut single tracks; “Running from You” and “One Last Time.” Immediately the two shared a musical chemistry and were elated when they found Fiddler to fill the role of guitarist. The four came together to write, record and rehearse for their debut release in 2011. When Jake joined the group late 2011 they all began collaborating on a new album, due out early 2013.
Jonny and Ryan’s time, performing as successful recording artists in the group The Latency, (a national touring act opening for the likes of Hedley, State of Shock, Marianas Trench, Faber Drive) helped them gain not only industry knowledge but national notoriety. This will help in many ways moving forward with The Grand.
The Grand has already performed over 40 shows and have even started their own outdoor music festival called Rocktoberfest.
Often compared to Chris Cornell and Scott Stapp, Norrie feels that The Grand is a perfect project to showcase his vocal abilities.... With all the blues, soul and plain out rock and roll your ears can handle. Fiddler has been harnessing his metal skills for over 5 years including a stint with local band “DeathPop” and has gained influences from his older brother who played in the successful Universal Recording artist rock group "The Veer Union". He has an attention to detail, this explains his inherited nickname “Tone” ....you may just need to hear it. Stead says his true colors are being seen and expressed through his six string symphonies and harmonic vocal chords, which shine during live performances. Together the four have created a young energetic Rock band which will be sure to catch your attention. They are currently working in the studio with names such as Jeff Johnson, Orbek Productions, and many more that have all played a helping hand in writing, demoing and recording their debut album due out at the end of 2013.
These five men all have their flaws, but they all have one thing in common: The Grand.
