Granola burst onto the Sioux Falls, S.D. live-music scene in 2016, quickly establishing themselves as a consistent presence in bar and club circuit in the Sioux Empire.
Part blues, funk and rock — this consistently-evolving quartet consists of
∞ Connor Engberg (guitar, vocals, harmonica, synth)
∞ Parker Brown (bass, percussion)
∞ Amberly Koopman (piano, synth, vocals, percussion, flute)
∞ Jackson Ashlock (drums, percussion)
The band’s first single, ‘Treble Clef Tattoo’, debuted at No. 1 on the Local605 charts in 2017, making Granola the first band to debut at No. 1 in the chart’s history.
In their inaugural year, Granola has played alongside acts such as The Big Wu, Lunar Funk Theory, Closet Monster, Doll Skin, El Dub, Marah and the Mainsail, Har-di-Har, Dead Larry, and many, many more.
The band’s engaging live-experience relies on the unexpected, genre-bending sound of its original material as much as it does its revolving door of musical influences. As technically skilled as they are innovative, Granola’s ambition is raising the musical standard in an untapped musical community.
Currently awaiting the release of their full-length debut album, Granola is plotting, preparing and spiriting upward to the future.
