Steve Grand performs on the Miller Mainstage Saturday, June 10.
After his stunning performance at PrideFest 2014, we’re excited to welcome Steve Grand back to Milwaukee! Since his last visit, Steve has performed at over 30 pride festivals worldwide as his career continues to soar.
With over 10 million views on YouTube, a #3 Album on The Billboard Independent Album Artist Charts, and one of the most successful Music Kickstarter Campaigns ever under his belt, Steve Grand has not just broken the rules, but has changed the game when it comes to being a successful singer-songwriter in the era of YouTube and Spotify.
Grand’s first of many self-funded music videos, “All-American Boy,” released in July of 2013, tells the story of unrequited love between two men, and took the internet storm when it was released. It lead the openly gay artist to be lauded as a trailblazer in the entertainment world.
Touring internationally and across the country in 2016, Steve has also made appearances on Good Morning America, CNN, Larry King Now, and other national outlets where he has used his platform to advocate for human rights and LGBTQ equality.
Steve has achieved many career milestones, including:
- Had the #3 most funded music project in Kickstarter’s History with over 5000 backers
- Released first full length album in March 2015 on his own label, Grand Nation LLC, WHICH debuted at #47 on the Top 200 chart and #3 on the Billboard Independent albums chart
- Almost 6 Million views of “All American Boy” video – and made Buzzfeed’s list of the “24 Most Brilliant Music Videos from 2013”
- Out Magazine named Grand on their 2014 “Out100” list of the year’s most compelling LGBT people
