Grandson aka Jordan Benjamin
combines bluesy hard rock guitars, trap-influenced beats, and lyrics about the hardships of everyday life. Benjamin was born in Englewood, New Jersey, but grew up in Toronto in a musical family and was raised on classic rock, hip-hop, dancehall, and other genres. After teaching himself to play guitar and piano, he started beatboxing and freestyle rapping, and began recording demos of songs while a student at McGill University in Montreal. Benjamin relocated to Los Angeles and worked on tracks with producers Kevin Hissink and HighxLand, and the single "Bills" was released in September 2016. The track, which earned over a million streams, landed Benjamin a record deal with RCA, and in 2017, he issued a flurry of wide-ranging singles, including "Kiss Bang" and the politically charged "War." A pair of cautionary and topical singles, "Overdose" and "Thoughts & Prayers," followed in 2018. Switching to the Fueled by Ramen label, Benjamin found success with his single "Blood//Water," which was featured on his debut EP, A Modern Tragedy, Vol. 1, later that year. Led by the single "Apologize," a sequel EP, A Modern Tragedy, Vol. 2, appeared in February 2019, followed by the gritty one-off single "Rock Bottom" later that August. (Paul Simpson, AMG)
