grandson is a Toronto-born and currently LA-based artist, but where he lives has nothing to do with the sweet tunes he’s dropping. Case in point, the latest single “Kiss Bang.”

He says of the song, “‘Kiss Bang’ tells the story of a torrid love affair gone wrong, as a woman walks in on her husband cheating on her and murders his mistress in cold blood. The song is a cautionary tale I wrote for the dangers of living too hedonistically, written for those that, despite not necessarily meaning to hurt anybody, are living with a myopic view of the world and are oblivious to how their actions affect others.

“While the majority of my songs are grounded in real stories and feelings, I also like to use songwriting as a medium to tell stories of all shapes and sizes, looking for ways to relate to characters that, while on the surface are ostensibly bad or villainous, can be related to with a little empathy and perspective.”
