ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Produced by Daniel Boner
Daysight Music, LLC

Here and Now introduces bluegrass listeners to David Grindstaff performing with an all-star lineup of bluegrass power hitters. Produced and engineered by Daniel Boner, Here and Now includes thirteen tracks, featuring David on mandolin and bass along with instrumental performances by Adam Steffey, Tim Stafford, Hunter Berry, Jim Van Cleve, Josh Swift, Daniel Boner, Will Parsons, Haley Stiltner, Colby Laney, David Babb, and Andy Blevins.

Grammy award-winning guitarist and co-author of three of the album’s songs, Tim Stafford says, “David Grindstaff is a star-in-waiting in the small universe of bluegrass music, a regional name who should be known soon to a much wider audience.” “David has a voice with range and character reminiscent of Dan Tyminski, and that ain't a bad thing.”

David possesses a unique and rich voice with an essence of maturity that could be associated with artists well beyond his years. These endearing qualities are evident in songs such as, “Memories of an Angel” and “I’ll Never Let Her Go.” Complementary harmony vocals are provided by Jason Crawford and Daniel Salyer.

During his time as a student of the world-renown East Tennessee State University Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music Program, David became acquainted with Norwegian vocalist, Signe Salvesen. Their voices blend for an inspiring duet rendition of “Either Way, I’m Going Home,” co-written by Bobby Starnes and Tim Stafford.

The musicians demonstrate remarkable musical dexterity throughout the album, particularly on fast-tempo songs like “Jack up the Jail” and “Lost, and I’ll Never Find the Way.” Artistry and creativity are exemplified through the lyrics of songs such as “The Tinker Man,” written by Will Parsons.

“David Grindstaff has made one gem of an album,” says multi award-winning mandolin player, Adam Steffey. “He is one of the hidden talents in this music, but I'm sure that won't be the case for long! The strong material and excellent presentation of his abilities on this recording is just the beginning.” “Enjoy what I'm sure will be the first of many great albums from this talented young man!”
