Bio

Hailing from the West Australian Coastal town of Esperance three-piece act Grand Casual consisting of Matt Cooper, Joe Franzone and Kyron Smithson have been steadily building momentum since late 2017. A wide range of influences including Sticky Fingers and The Black Keys drive their sound which varies from track to track seamlessly incorporating elements of blues, jazz, soul.

Late 2017 and early 2018 has seen a flurry of activity with Grand Casual performing a number of shows in Esperance also further afield. A mini tour mid-January saw the lads play Hopetoun, Denmark and Albany receiving praise for their high energy and diverse live show. Hard work has paid off over this time with the band appearing alongside some amazing acts including Old Blood, Myles Mitchell and the Hot Mama Band, New Zealand based blues duo Swamp Thing and West Australian rising talent Michael Dunstan.

Grand Casual have recently made their way into the studio to begin work on their first single Soldiers. The track has hit the ground running make sure to give it a spin. Big Thanks to Andy Lawson at Debaser studio and Jayden Walker at Aerious Production for bringing the track to life.

This band has GROWWWWWWWN, big time, & in all the best directions. And in reference to this track itself, well original is ORIGINAL & this is cut from their own solid stone & they should be so proud. The kicker is these guys rip it up even MORE in the live arena, also in their own original POWERFUL performing style, they rip!
