While effortlessly incorporating his instrumental zeal for the saxophone over funky rhythms and jazzy melodic beats, it’s no wonder why the masses flock to see GRiZ perform live. After playing successful gigs at festivals across the country, including Movement Festival in his hometown of Detroit, New York City’s Governor’s Ball, Insomniac’s Electric Forest and the Global Dance Festival in Red Rocks, Colorado, GRiZ fans continue to request his live performances, even across the border.

This month GRiZ will embark on his first ever Canadian tour dubbed, “Unbanned From Canada Tour.” If you’re curious where the name comes from, it’s the result of a true story. The artist was banned from entering the country for the past year because of permit issues. Ever since he has been receiving non-stop requests to play in Canada, and is proud to finally announce an upcoming tour set to take place over five dates, starting with a huge performance in Salmo at Shambahla Music Festival on August 11. The tour will travel through Canada making stops in Whistler, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.

As GRiZ readies his second full length album due September 14, which is also the first birthday for his Mad Liberation LP, the first single “Gettin’ Live” already has over 300,000 plays on SoundCloud and is available as a free download.You can catch him playing festivals such as Chicago’s Lollapalooza, Mad Decent Block Party in DC and Dallas, San Francisco’s Outside Lands and more.
