Kalob Griffin Band On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks
Kalob and Crew came to say hi just a few months ago…long before we knew they’ll be parting ways as a band.
I’m not sure if my brain will allow that truth to sink in: they just have so much fun making these songs.
Here’s to a wonderful future for each and every member, and many, MANY reunion shows!
Enjoy Kalob Griffin Band…we do.
So… When/why/how/where did KGB get started? That is to say, can you give us a comfortably-abridged bio?
KGB formed at Penn State in 2009 as a house party band. We didn’t have any plans bigger than free beer at first, but we soon realized that we wanted to push our luck on the road so we began touring. After graduation we settled in Philadelphia where we recorded our debut full length album, “June Found A Gun,” in the summer of 2012. Over the course of the next few years our live show grew tighter and tighter performing over 300 shows. We continually struggled to produce studio recordings, but we persevered with our latest release, “Full Love,” which was released in the fall of 2014. After a blowout performance at our 4th annual holiday show at Union Transfer in Philadelphia in December of 2014, we took a few months off to write a new record plan for a big summer. Ultimately, that time off the road led individual members of the group to pursue other creative outlets, which have now become a primary focus.
Why did you choose these songs for On the Hill?
We chose those tunes for our session because they were challenging arrangements to strip down. Our live sound is generally more electric and incorporates a full drum set.
What else is going on in your world? What’s next?
The group of guys performing in this session have gone their separate ways for now, each pursuing other creative outlets, but a new release of compiled studio and live tracks will be released this spring.
Where can we see and hear more of you?
