CHECK BACK FOR THE SINGLE
Michael Gruber was born in Elkton, Maryland. He was not too interested in music in his younger years until he was about 12 or 13 when he picked up his Dad’s old bass and asked him to teach him how to play. At his middle school talent show, Michael played “Dani California” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers to his school in 7th grade. Right after he had finished playing that song on stage, he was shown the gymnasium next to the auditorium, where the marching band was practicing for the competition later that week. The following school year, Michael would join the marching band and continue his time with them until his senior year of high school. He messed around for the majority of high school with the idea of making his own music but started to take it more seriously in 11th grade when he decided to take his first music theory class. After trying his hand at some music-making with a bit of theory under his belt, he sent it to his teacher, who gave him some feedback on what he had made with his teacher encouraging him. Michael felt a drive from his constant performing from the marching band and wanted to keep doing so on his own terms. Michael would move to Bear Delaware with his family right before the start of his senior year and would form a band that still is nameless at the moment. He would also work on his own music that strayed from what his band was doing. In his personal time, he recorded and mixed on the program Reaper with band and solo material. He would mainly focus on his work on instruments but has pushed out some work with lyrics in mind. Now taking a significant step on his path to school at Albright College, he is now in his freshman year and joining the Lion Records team.
Michael has jumped on to do anything with music at college by getting a radio show, being a part of the jazz band, and taking music lessons from teachers. Michael takes great inspiration from a wide spread of bands and artists from old to new. Slayer, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Slipknot, and Scale the Summit come up often in his list of favorites and artists that he takes inspiration from. Listening to a variety of artists, but mostly sticking to artists on the heavier sound, Michael creates a sonic palette like no other. Being the fun-loving man, Michael immediately makes friends with those around him and work with anyone willing to work with him. Following his own path, he doesn’t care what others will think about what he does. Michael will go out there and do what he wants to get the sound in his head.
