About The Band
in 1984 Chicago, Benjamin Laub (better known by his stage name Grieves) moved around a bit before finally deciding on Seattle
as his home in order to follow his passion of music. He found in interest in music at a young age as his father would take
him to jazz clubs in the city while still in Chicago. With a love for both punk and hip hop, Grieves eventually found an audience
with his catchy rapping and began working in a home studio to produce his first works. It was in 2007 that he released his
debut album "Irreversible", making a name for himself in the rap scene with this solid release. He followed the album up by
joining forces with Budo, an incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist and producer, for what came to be 2008's "88 Keys and
Counting". The success and energy that came from the creation of this last album had Grieves and Budo working together once
again on his biggest release to date, 2011's "Together/Apart", an album that showcases, among many themes and topics, the
bond that music creates with people. The album was a great success, making Grieves and Budo an even bigger name on the scene
than they already were. Lauded for it's subject matter that covers personal revelations and self-discovery, "Together/Apart"
is the culmination of years of talent and thoughtful creative process, as well as life itself.
first put his name out on the rap scene with the release of his debut album "Irreversible" in 2007, allowing him to expand
his horizons and recruit the talent of Budo to work on "88 Keys & Counting", the album that drew the attention of Rhymesayers
Entertainment, the label that has artists such as Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, and others. Grieves found a stellar partnership
in collaborating with Budo, leading them to do it once again for an emotionally charged and bold album that came to be known
as "Together/Apart". This was the biggest and most daring of all of Grieves' work to date, and has earned him places on five
different album charts, most notably taking the number one spot on the Top Heatseekers chart. This is his biggest album, and
likely the one that brought him out from the underground into the limelight.
