An interview with Grant Knoche


The spark of a song always starts differently for me! I love to think of song ideas, melodies, and lyrics constantly and record them into my voice memos on my phone! The day that I wrote “SORRY FOR THE HONESTY”, I went into to the session with my co-writers, Brooke Williams and Tyler Shamy, and had the line “my bad, sorry for the honesty” written down in my phone. I’ve always wanted to try something different and talk in a song. so we played with the rhythm to make it feel cool & catchy, I put a beat down, and that’s what sparked the rest of the session 🙂


To be honest, I don’t have one specific answer for what I want my fans to take away from my music. When I write my music, i try my best to make it relatable to all my fans so that they can connect in their own way! I want them to decide what they want to take away from my music because everybody connects to music in a different way!

AHH! I’m so unbelievably excited for 2020! I’m very proud to say that i will be releasing my EP, brand new music, music videos, and so much more! I’ve always had this feeling since I was little that 2020 was gonna be my year and I’m so ready to make that happen!

Okay so i have 7 different artists that i absolutely love and that influence me as an artist! those 7 artists are Adele, Dua Lipa, Troye Sivan, Lauv, Julia Michaels, Billie Eilish, & FINNEAS! i’m literally obsessed with anything that any of those artist release! haha

One producer that i’d love to work with is Oscar Görres. I think his work is so interesting and complex sounding with still staying minimal and clean! amazing stuff! Another person that I’d die to work with is FINNEAS. his production and songwriting skills are so different and interesting and it would be amazing to just sit down, watch, and learn from him!

Every morning, I wake up and instantly think about music. It’s just something that constantly runs through my veins and I can’t get enough of it. When I was 7 years old, my parents saw me dancing through the house and decided to put me into dance classes. it was through the love of music that I thought myself to play piano and then sing to it. Music makes me so happy & I’m so addicted to it 🙂

My favorite lyric that i’ve ever written is “if i would’ve known, i’d’ve stopped at the dial tone.” from my song, “DIAL TONE”. when it came to writing the chorus, I wasn’t completely sure what the overall meaning and idea of the song was at that point. when i came up with that line, it instantly pieced the whole puzzle together and made everything make sense to me!
