GRAND ANALOG is a raw collective of seasoned musicians and beat junkies who create a beautiful mess of rap’n’roll, dub and soul. Frontman Odario Williams and his brother, DJ Ofield, blame their father, a reggae DJ from the 80s, for their love of music, bass, and trouble. In concert and on recordings, they’ve fine tuned the signature Grand Analog sound – an infectious blend of hip hop, funk, rock and ska.
