With their electrifying performances and soulful, blues-inspired sound, Greta Van Fleet has taken the music world by storm. Hailing from Frankenmuth, Michigan, the quartet has been captivating audiences with their powerful vocals, soaring guitar solos, and driving rhythm section.
Formed in 2012 by brothers Josh, Jake, and Sam Kiszka and their friend Danny Wagner, Greta Van Fleet has quickly risen to fame, drawing comparisons to legendary rock acts such as Led Zeppelin and Rush. But while their influences may be rooted in the past, the band is far from a throwback act. They’ve taken the sounds of classic rock and infused it with their own unique energy, creating a style that’s both timeless and fresh.
One of the band’s biggest strengths is their live show. With Josh’s dynamic stage presence and the band’s tight musicianship, Greta Van Fleet has become a must-see act. They’ve played to sold-out crowds across the world, including headlining slots at major festivals such as Coachella and Lollapalooza.
Their debut album, “Anthem of the Peaceful Army,” released in 2018, was a critical and commercial success, peaking at number one on the Billboard Rock chart. The album showcases the band’s range, from the epic, Zeppelin-inspired opener “Age of Man” to the catchy, pop-infused “You’re the One.”
But Greta Van Fleet is far from a one-trick pony. They’ve continued to evolve with their 2021 release “The Battle at Garden’s Gate,” which explores more complex themes and features even more musical experimentation. From the introspective “My Way, Soon” to the soaring, arena-ready “Heat Above,” the album is a testament to the band’s musical growth and potential.
Perhaps most impressively, Greta Van Fleet has accomplished all of this while still in their early twenties. With their undeniable talent and boundless potential, the band is poised to become one of the most important acts in rock ‘n’ roll for years to come. As Rolling Stone has noted, “Greta Van Fleet are not imitators; they’re rock & roll believers, unapologetic throwbacks to an era that has no exact modern equivalent, contemporaries of a stadium-filling revivalism that no longer exists.”
