Steve Grand (born February 28, 1990) is an American singer, songwriter and model from Lemont, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. He became an overnight internet celebrity and was acclaimed by some to be the first openly gay male country musician to attract mainstream attention in the United States. The music video of his first hit “All-American Boy” went viral on YouTube in less than a week in July 2013. This attention landed Grand on Good Morning America, CNN and other national media. On Good Morning America Steve shared how difficult it was for him to come out to his parents as a high school student—saying with obvious emotion “I felt like I was a shame to my parents and that there was no way I could ever make them proud.”. Buzzfeed ranked the video on its list of the “24 Most Brilliant Music Videos from 2013”, and Out magazine named Grand to its annual “Out100” list of the year’s most compelling LGBT people. In addition to being a musician, Grand has become an active figure in the LGBT equality movement.
Steve Grand release an acoustic version of “We Are The Night”, a track off his debut album All-American Boy, and thanked his followers for their support.
Speaks Steve on the track:
“So for every boy and every girl / No matter who you love / And for all my trans brothers and sisters / Of every race, in every place around this globe / It’s our time / We will rise”
Writes Steve on Facebook, and offered some life advice at the same time:
Thank you to everyone who has supported my work in any way these last (almost) 2 and a half years. It means more to me than I can express.
I am grateful for not only all the enriching experiences your support has brought me, but also for the challenges I have grown from. I am the person I am today because of those experiences and those challenges, and (though I have not always been able to say this honestly) I am at a point where I know I would not have it any other way. Because what choice do we have anyways?
He’s Back! Steve Grand Releases New Single “Walking”
Steve Grand is gearing up to release album number two and has dropped the first single from the said album
Steve Grand has brought out some new music that we definitely can’t get enough of. “Walking” will become the first single from his second studio album; written and recorded all by himself; he also co-produced the song along with Tim Palmer. A lyric video showing behind-the-scenes clips was also released alongside the single. He has also revealed that a music video will follow soon.
The album is planned to be out in a few months. This first single is a fun and lighter tone compared to other album tracks, which will dive deeper into emotions. The single is a charity single for the first seven days, with 100% of the proceeds going to Rainbow Railroad.
The song reminds us of the jovial tracks from his debut album such as “Whiskey Crime”, “Stay”, and “Soaking Wet”; the latter of which was never released as a single and therefore never got a music video, much to our dismay; however, we happily support new music from this singer-songwriter instead….continue reading »»»»»»
