Brewer’s Grade Band continues to blaze their own trail bringing their unique brand of Northwest Country music to the next level. Band member Joe Smart’s recent Grammy win recognizing his work on the O’Connor Band’s “Coming Home” Album of the Year has led to some exciting opportunities to collaborate with music’s biggest names including Paul Simon and Zac Brown Band! This has helped build even more momentum for the group leading to the main stage at many of the west coast's top festivals and events, genre-bending studio sessions and co-writes, an independent film soundtrack credit and more opportunities to create and collaborate in the Northwest, Nashville and beyond! They continue to push the envelope and advance their role as one of the region's most sought after independent artists all while staying true to their Northwest Country roots.
The members of Brewer’s Grade Band are all life-long natives of the Pacific Northwest. More than 20 years have passed since lead singer Zac Grooms and drummer Cody Christopherson founded the first iteration of the band while still attending High School in the small Columbia River farm community of Arlington, OR. Brothers Al and Nolan Hare who later joined the band as lead and bass guitarists were born and raised just 50 miles downriver in The Dalles, OR. The group first met Joe Smart while recording at Rainmaker Studios near his home just up the river in Pasco, WA.
Since the band’s inception all the way back in the Arlington High School days their number one goal has been to reach people with their original music. Through all of the twists and turns 20 years of life has brought, this same purpose continues to be the main driving force behind the continuing evolution of the band, and has undoubtedly shaped the content and style of their music for the better. They pride themselves in their ability to step onto any stage and entertain any audience with an authentic performance of music they have literally lived together rather than chosen out of a book at a publishing company. That is an achievement that no level of streams, sales, number of followers or any other standard unit of measuring success can come anywhere close to replicating.
