Right in the middle of the vast suburbia that connects Dallas and Fort Worth Texas, Grant Bloom fell in love with music as a young kid on the swing set in his backyard with the radio playing through his headphones. On the brink of adolescence he began writing songs on an old guitar built by his uncle. Over the next decade, his edges were sharpened by countless nights spent competing against the sounds of the coffee shop lenders, the dull roar of the dinner crowd, The Cowboys vs the Eagles on TV at the bar.
