One of the most fascinating groups to grace the '90s and beyond, Grandaddy never achieved what you would call mainstream success, but they made up for it in terms of accolades received for their exquisitely unique music and songs.

Grandaddy was founded by Jason Lytle in California in 1992 with bassist Kevin Garcia and drummer Aaron Burtch. Lytle took care of the songs, vocals, guitar, and keyboards before expanding its line up in 1995 to include guitarist Jim Fairchild and keyboardist Tim Dryden.

The band's prolific creativity was never solely contained by their albums, resulting in a wealth of compilation material, EPs, singles and split singles throughout their career. Following the watershed The Sophtware Slump, Grandaddy did release two more full-length albums, 2003's Sumday and 2006's Just Like The Fambly Cat, but the group disbanded as the latter was released and ceased touring in 2006. Jason Lytle went on to enjoy a solo career, but the band re-formed for a run of shows in 2012 then again in 2016 and 2017, along with recording new material.
