Moose Gronholm's Profile

Moose Gronholm

Moose is originally from Chicago. The river's howl and the string band music brought him here via steel horse known as a Ford Taurus in 2011. He found the pen and word before he could play a note on a guitar. He experiences life and writes about it. See the country and of its wondrous places. Those are his two mottos. He loves Whitman, Thoreau, Emerson, and Kerouac, Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss, Alcott, and Atwood. That's Moose, a simple dude who loves music and writing, and his family.

VIDEO REVIEW: Massing - "Daisies"

The song is from their 2021 EP Nothing’ to Fear. I like to think of this song as a love letter. It just asks the questions “if you were to die what would you / I do?” All the while using death as a metaphor for the “stupid things I say” inside of a relationship.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Ivory in the Narrows - Matt Baumann

What has always struck me about Matt are his lyrics. The poetry in their feeling, their simplicity and complexity, and his lyrics all draw me in like a deer in the headlights. Then everything gets put down and shut off and the listening commences.

EP REVIEW: Nothin’ to Fear - Massing

Delving into the lyrics I was finding depth to the lyricism. The songs go through waves of relationships and living life. Getting older, and being sometimes sarcastic, and honest.

REVIEW: Anchors - J. Warrick Ford

From a living room couch amidst a pandemic six songs filled my ear canals and traveled through my bones and soul and left me wanting more. J. Warrick Ford is one half of Warrick and Lowell and is also a third of Chelsea Ford & the Trouble. Through a year of isolation, sheltering in place, and quarantining, he recorded this album.
