Family and community are the roots of Elder Grown, a band of brothers from Durango, Colorado. They consider every audience member to be their 6th collective member, the heartbeat that fuels their music.
Elder Grown creates a soul-inspired sound by blending funk, pop, rock, hip-hop, jazz, and reggae. Their improvisational jams serve as the foundation for their captivating and genre-bending music. With groovy bass lines, screaming guitar, and bold saxophone, they invite listeners on a rollercoaster ride of musical exploration. Switching instruments mid-song, Elder Grown defies conventions and takes you on a journey into the unrecognizably familiar.
The band has released two albums so far. Their debut album, "Fire On The Way," features a variety of original works. They also have an EP called "The Motorhome Mixes," which includes three songs that remain in their current setlist.
Currently, Elder Grown is working on their upcoming full-length album, which is self-produced and self-recorded. Set to be released in the spring, this album will showcase their authentic sound and provide listeners with a true Elder Grown experience.
The band's origin story dates back to the early 90s when the Hoffman brothers—Joshua, John, and Paul—grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, surrounded by their father's performances as a singer-songwriter. Their passion for music grew, and after moving to Southwest Colorado, they formed Elder Grown, embracing their multifaceted musical talents.
Sam Kelly, an (saxophone), joined the band during their time at Fort Lewis College. His love for saxophone and unique sound contributed to Elder Grown's evolution.
Brandon Clark, primarily a guitarist, expanded his skills to bass and keyboards to keep up with the band's instrument swapping. His love for classic rock and soulful tunes adds a creative touch to their sound.
Guillaume Metz, a professional guitarist from Paris, France, joined Elder Grown in 2019. His expertise as a lead guitarist, backup vocalist, and auxiliary bassist brought depth and richness to their performances.
Together, Elder Grown continues to captivate audiences with their soul-inspired sound and a commitment to pushing musical boundaries. With a new album on the horizon, they look forward to sharing their journey with their extended family of listeners.
