 Steve Grand Biography

Prior to launching his musical career, Grand modeled under the pseudonym Steve Chatham. He also performed as a cover artist as Steve Starchild. Grand played piano at the Joynt in downtown Chicago in 2013.

That same year, he recorded a music video for his song "All-American Boy," producing it at a cost of US$7,000.

The video was posted on YouTube on July 2, 2013 and immediately went viral. Just 8 days later, on July 10, the video passed 1,000,000 views.

[I don't have a manager or a label or any sort of funding other than the tip money I make playing piano downtown at The Joynt, and also, ironically to some, in the churches on Sunday morning... (we'll see how long I'll be singing “Glory to God” should this video see the light of day).

As far as the ascetic achievements of the video... lets just say I was lucky to have a good friend introduce me to the best team I could have asked for... who held on to the roller coaster that was this project and dealt with all my intensity and craziness as the true professionals they were.

I wrote the song during a drunken piano jam session at a party. I recorded the vocals in my parents basement and worked with my friend Max Steger: http://maxsteger.com/ to record and mix the rest of the instruments.

I feel like music industry people wouldn't like the idea of me “pigeonholing” myself by telling this story as I have. But I don't believe the world sees change until it sees honesty.

So I went in on my own.

I went all in. There is no Plan B. I'm nervous/excited/horrified/anxious about the implications all of the choices I am making (and have made throughout my journey of discovering myself as a man and as an artist) will have on my future. But then I remind myself I never really had a choice. This is the story I've been aching to tell my most of my life... it is what I hold dearest to me.

BUT my story would never have seen the light of day were it not for the kindness and generosity of so many that helped me through this process, many of whom asked for nothing in return. I know my passion and intensity for this project were a lot to deal with (that might be the understatement of the year.. ;)) I want to thank my crew and everyone involved for doing your best to help me keep my sanity... just barely. And thank you for sticking with me; for your flexibility and patience and helping to bring my vision to life. And to mom and dad... I know you guys don't always understand just what the hell I am trying to do, but continue to love and support me nonetheless. It means everything to me...
