Greta Van Fleet Saviors of Rock n Roll?
You can’t utter the words Greta Van Fleet without someone chiming in and comparing them to the Rock and Roll greats. Well, that’s not what this is about and for that reason, I won’t even mention the comparisons. In my own personal opinion, I don’t think its fair to compare Greta Van Fleet to the greats or vice versa. Each had their own moment in time, and now is the time of Greta Van Fleet. At the young ages of 22 (twins Josh [lead vocals] and Jake [lead guitar]), 19 (Sam [Bass]), and 19 (Danny [Drummer]) respectively, the band which was founded in 2012 but signed in 2017 has already started breaking down barriers. They were already named Best New Artist (2017) at the Loudwire Music Awards, have played on SNL, and as of this month have been nominated for four Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album. If I was a betting man I would bet they win at least one if not all of those awards.
The goal of this shoot was to capture the essence, the aura, the pure energy, that is Greta Van Fleet.
