Singer-songwriter Steve Grand remembers the first time he realized how powerful music could be. At a young age, riding in the car with his dad, listening to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Beach Boys, he saw how a song could transport someone through time and space to a moment in the past.
It’s a feeling he’s now given countless people himself with 2013’s release of “All American Boy,” his debut single. Pegged as a “gay country artist” by the media, his song depicts a situation familiar to many people—an unrequited crush of someone out of reach, that burning desire for someone you can never have. It’s a universal truth, but Steve’s story was even more affecting, because he was telling that story from the perspective of a gay man who had a crush on a straight man.
Opening for Mr. Grand will be comedian Karen Williams. As a singleView more
