A indigenous of Lemont, Illinois, Grand lowered out of university over time, working various unusual careers and gigging at regional churches to be able to finance his recordings. Following sudden success from the “All American Boy” video, he quickly released a Kickstarter advertising campaign, raising over 25 % of the million dollars to invest in his debut, which he released separately in early 2015. Called for its business lead one, All American Youngster debuted at amount 47 for the Billboard Best 200.
