Formation

Grizfolk formed in Los Angeles when Swedish producers Fredrik Eriksson and Sebastian Fritze met singer-songwriter Adam Roth in 2012, who were joined by Brendan Willing James and Bill Delia later that year. Initially, the group was called Griz Adams, but they quickly changed their name to Grizfolk after their demo for the song "The Struggle" went viral on the internet, "something that better reflected what's supported us", Fritze explains.[4]

Early career

In October 2013, Grizfolk performed an in-studio performance for KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic. The Santa Monica based station also championed Grizfolk as an "Artist You Should Know". [5] The next day, they performed at KCRW's annual Masquerade Ball alongside Glasser, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Dave Sitek and more.[2] In early 2014, their song "Way Back When" was featured on the soundtrack of the comic science fiction movie Mr. Peabody & Sherman.[6]

From The Spark EP

Signed to Virgin Records in the fall of 2013, Grizfolk released their debut EP, From The Spark, in February 2014, including their single “"The Struggle”". It was followed by the band'’s first modern rock single, “"Hymnals". Remix veteran RAC also released his version of “"Hymnals",” which rose to #1 on The Hype Machine.[7] Other From The Spark remixes were released by Saint Pepsi, Tyde and Dawn Golden.

In early 2015, it was announced that the band would perform at the Boston Calling Music Festival in May 2015; a few weeks following the initial announcement the act withdrew from the festival. [10]
