Bio

Grant Farm is a band on a mission. Tyler, Chris, Adrian and Sean are experienced players of
renown in their own right, but as a unit they form a greater whole, and are working hard
to grow into the best band that they can be. Former members of Leftover Salmon, The Drew Emmitt Band,
Emmitt-Nershi Band, Snake Oil Medicine Show, Bill Nershi's Blue Planet and Hot Soup, these fine
young players have been featured on stage with the likes of The String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain
String Band, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Motet, Head For The Hills, Sam Bush, Jerry
Douglas, Tim O'Brien, Dumpstaphunk, Tony Rice, Larry Keel, Keller Williams, Jon Oates,
Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Disco Biscuits, Abigail Washburn and Peter Rowan.

The seeds of Grant Farm were planted in 2009 by Tyler Grant and Andy Thorn. Tyler
was fresh off the boat from Nashville, TN and Andy from Chapel Hill, NC. The duo found
themselves in Boulder, CO as members of The Emmitt-Nershi Band, and were eager
to showcase some of their original music. When Tyler gave his notice to ENB at the end of 2010 he was
driven to make a bigger statement with his music so he dusted off his Telecaster, started a conversation with
the experienced and equally driven drummer Chris Misner, plugged in, turned up, and watched the sprouts of
the Grant Farm concept grow.

With the help of Thorn and stellar bassist Keith Moseley of The String Cheese Incident, the
electric Grant Farm started rehearsing in early 2011. Their concerts in Denver, Boulder
and the mountains beyond caused a ripple in the local music scene that led to some fine
festival plays the following Summer, including Yarmonygrass, Four Corners Folk Festival,
Fort Collins Bark n' Bluegrass, Riverfront, and Harvestival. With a country-disco (Cris-Co),
roots-rock, booty-shakin' jam-tastic concept fully formed, Adrian Engfer and Sean Foley
were brought on board to bring the band into 2012. Now, after a couple solid seasons of touring
Coast-to-Coast behind their eponymous debut CD, Grant Farm, released on Grant Central Records
in March 2012, audiences everywhere are a-buzz with the Roots, Rock and Cris-Co statement that
Grant Farm brings to every performance.
