DETROIT (CelebrityAccess) — Michigan-based EDM producer and DJ GriZ announced his upcoming studio album Ride Waves, along with plans for a U.S. headlining tour.
For Ride Waves, his sixth studio effort, GriZ AKA Grant Kwiecinski ventures beyond his EMD roots. Ride Waves saw GriZ collaborate with the likes of Wiz Khalifa and DRAM as well as the the Harlem Gospel Choir, and the Chicago Children’s Choir. Snoop Dogg even sent in a verse from his studio in Long Beach.
Ride Waves will be paired with a US album tour titled Ride Waves Tour: Season One, which kicks off in March and with shows in markets that include Brooklyn, Philadelphia, St. Augustine, Minneapolis, and more.
GriZ is also lined up for a series of festivals this summer that include New Orleans Buku Music & Arts Project, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and more.
In recent years, GRiZ has been recognized for his advocacy on social issues, including becoming an outspoken representative for the LGBTQ community, starting with his coming out via a HuffPost op-ed in 2017. He has since been named Michigan’s Face of Pride in 2018 by USA Today and represented the LGBTQ’s roots in electronic music.
I’m Good, the latest single from Ride Waves.
