A tale to tell...
If I were going to be honest, the STORIE GRUBB project began in Chico CA, in 1995 when I started to play guitar and write my own songs. I was fifteen years old and completely obsessed with learning the instrument. I used to record on two old tape players, overdubbing guitars and keyboards back and forth, until I had created these half hour long gibberish pieces. I remember turning my mom's little half of the shop into my studio and I spent as much time as I could out there plucking and creating these odd masterpieces.
After barely graduating high school (and being homeless once or twice), I spent a few years just trying to stay alive. I moved a lot in my early twenties... from Grants Pass Oregon to Paso Robles California ...I lived in Eureka California for a bit and even over to Boise Idaho for a few months in the summer of 2002. It wasn't until I was 23 (in 2003) and living in Ashland, Oregon that I was able to record music again but this time it was all digital and far superior to the old tape players I was used to. I was also able to stay still for a while and focus on songwriting...
Fast forward a few more years (and about 5 monikers later) and here I am in Boise, Idaho with the same sort of set up. I have transformed one of the rooms in my basement into my makeshift recording studio. With an old computer, a few guitars, some keyboards and my ukuleles I now have a way to share the sounds I hear in my head with whomever will listen.
I have always been a visual artist as well. My earliest memories are of me drawing with a crowd of toddlers around me watching in wonder. The STORIE GRUBB comicbook began in Portland,OR in 2008, where I would illustrate the lyrics to my songs and also draw out my thoughts and feelings about the world and universe around me. I now try to meld these two forms of art together because, for me, where one ends the other begins.
I am now backed by these amazing human beings...
