Adding to the already astounding show calendar of the fall, the Good Will Prevail Tour’s Saint Paul date was announced on Thursday, welcoming Griz back to the cities! Almost nine months since his Halloween show at Skyway, Griz continues to amplify the funk and soul aspects of EDM and has become one of the leaders of “future-funk” in just a short few years. He announced his tour date for November 19th at Myth, bringing Haywyre and Brasstracks as support!
Starting back in 2011, Griz has quickly gone from playing a small show at The Cabooze just four years back to headlining at one of the biggest clubs in the Twin Cities! Hailing from Detroit, he was determined to blend together the funk stylings of Motown and the energetic elements of electronic. And boy, has he perfected that funk electronic sound! His music is upbeat and cordial, bringing in guitars and horns to really enhance the live feel of his tracks. He also often incorporates vocals, such as in his collab with Big G titled “Good Times Roll”, to further push the Motown-vibe and bring the wall-to-wall good vibes. And if his sound wasn’t enough to let the good times roll, his focus on giving back to both his fans and the community at large will be! All his music is available for free download on his website, and he often strives to generate revenue for non-profits (with his 12 Days of Grizmas event) and up-and-coming artists (with his record label). Over the past few years, Griz has skyrocketed to the top of the scene with his Motown blend of EDM, and yet he’s stayed down to earth and continues to give back to his fans and the community as a whole.
With Griz focusing on mixing funk and electro, it’s no wonder that jazz-influenced Haywyre is on as support! Hailing from Indiana and now living in Vancouver, Haywyre takes glitch hop one step further and creates a jazz-glitch blend that is sure to make Myth move and groove while getting pumped for Griz. His style is both extremely professional, having more than 14 years of professional piano training, as well as very organic and natural, focusing heavily on piano improvisations in the majority of his tracks. After getting his big start in Minneapolis while studying music business at Augsburg College, he signed to Monstercat and moved to Vancouver. In his more recent tracks, Haywyre has been experimenting with blending alternative and experimental rock into electronic, creating some of the most unique music you can find. Having spent a significant part of his career in the Twin Cities and being highly acclaimed by both the Minneapolis scene and the EDM scene worldwide, Haywyre will be the perfect addition to this breathtaking night!
Opening the night with some future bass sensations is one of the fastest growing production duos around, Brasstracks! Hailing from Brooklyn, Brasstracks bring the funk and groove to future bass with extreme focus on “horns and drums and stuff”. They have such an upbeat and ecstatic sound that’s sure to put a smile on your face and dancing shoes on your feet! And even though they’re still on the up-and-coming side of the spectrum, they have worked with artists such as Grandtheft, Jay Prince, Yung Bae, and KRNE. And if that wasn’t enough to impress you, these two are the guys that produced Chance The Rapper’s “No Problem”, which Pitchfork put as the best new track of the year. Brasstracks is one of the biggest names to keep an eye on right now, and their opening set at Myth on November 19th will surely light the room up with energy!
With Griz headlining and Haywyre and Brasstracks as support, this tour is already guaranteed to be one of the best of 2016! So as the cold weather sets back in in Minnesota, make sure to come out to Myth on November 19th and warm up the body and soul with the Good Will Prevail Tour!
