Grover was raised in the historic gold rush town of Murphys, CA. The rich culture of the area (along with lifelong immersion in fiction, theater and 90’s country music) instilled a storytelling nature that is evident in Grover’s writing. He assembled a bar band while attending UC Santa Barbara, put all of the tips from his restaurant job into a jar, and used it to record a pop/rock album. After some layovers in LA and Oakland, Grover and his recently formed family returned to Murphys to reconnect with the small mountain atmosphere that provided such inspiration as a youth.

Living in California’s vastly varying environments provided ample material for his next two albums, which Grover self-funded and produced. “Moonshine”, the opening track on the mostly-acoustic Tourniquet (2011), has grown into a fan favorite since its original recording as a duet with LA artist Samantha Free, with over 715k streams on Spotify & Pandora. While recording The Optimist (2014), which includes love songs like “Little Spoon” and “Sick of You” and more tragic ballads “The Lampolier” and “Grindstone“, Grover assembled the finest musicians he could find to create a diverse collection of songs, from country, rock, bluegrass, jazz, and alt-indie. His next project, due in Spring 2017, is another acoustic collection that Grover recorded at his home studio deep in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
