“Rapper DaBaby dove headfirst into music, making a sharp turn from petty crime and legal issues to pursuing rap full-time with no previous experience. Beginning in 2015 under the name Baby Jesus but soon altering that to DaBaby, the Charlotte, North Carolina rapper ambushed the music industry with constant mixtape releases, making waves with tracks like 2016’s “Light Show” as well as performances at South by Southwest in 2015 and 2017. His style grew progressively harder and more aggressive as his discography expanded, with melodic and lighthearted flows becoming more confident and fluid by 2018’s Blank Blank mixtape.” – DaBaby AllMusic.com Biography

“To his friends and family, he goes by Grant Kwiecinski, the 28-year-old kid from north Detroit who grew up on a healthy diet of American funk, golden-age hip-hop, and dance music; the curious producer who first began making future-forward music during his formative years at Michigan State University, only to permanently abandon the classroom for the dance floor; and the fun-loving dude who’s the life of the party at every damn party. To the rest of the world, his name is GRiZ, the Denver-based multifaceted artist who’s funkin’ up dance floors worldwide with his self-described “future funk” sound, which mixes electronic music with his fiery live saxophone, energetic funk, and sweeping electro-soul.” – GRiZ About on MyNameIsGriz.com

In 2017 A Year in New York released their sophomore EP, Forget Me Knots, to a sold out crowd at the Loving Touch in Ferndale, MI. Since then, the band has had the opportunity to participate in the Michigan date of the Vans Warped Tour in 2017, Bled Fest in 2017 and 2018, and the Michigan date of Sad Summer Fest in 2019. The band is currently writing and recording new music slated to be released in 2020.” – Facebook Event
