Houston’s Grandfather Kid experienced its beginnings in ’09 2009 when Lucas Gorham, who was simply then using the punk rock-band Satin Hooks, found a documentary film about gospel music known as Sacred Metal. Gorham was struck from the audio and energy from the lapsteel acoustic guitar, a musical instrument Robert Randolph was simply bringing towards the public’s vision. Gorham left Silk Hooks, trained himself how exactly to play lapsteel, started writing secular tunes that shown a sacred metal electric gospel audio, and enlisting assistance from three of Houston’s best players (drummer Ryan Chavez, Robert Ellis, and Geoffrey Muller on bass and acoustic guitar), created Grandfather Child. Combining the electrical gospel strategy with nation, gutbucket blues, R&B, funk, and spirit, and a great deal of Gorham’s amazing electrical lapsteel playing, Grandfather Kid quickly discovered a loyal region following. The music group released a 7″ EP, Looking forward to You, this year 2010. A full-length self-titled debut recording made an appearance from New Western Information in 2012.
