The Boston-based Nick Grondin Group presents its music as modern instrumental storytelling, inspired by rock, folk and contemporary jazz styles. Using a broad palette of sounds they aspire to connect the listeners and performers through sharing a music that is rich on many levels, both musically and emotionally.
Mixed among the diverse original compositions in their repertoire are also re-interpretations of songs by bands such as the Beatles and Radiohead.
“I love the tone painting aspects of it. Beautiful harmonies and the way the voice is integrated as a wordless instrument is great.” – Jon Cowherd, pianist and composer of the Brian Blade Fellowship
The group was born in the summer of 2007 when Down Beat Magazine and ASCAP Young Jazz Composer award-winning jazz guitarist and composer Nick Grondin assembled a team of his colleagues then completing their Masters degrees at the New England Conservatory in Boston.
