Grenadina Signs To Fort Charter Records

By on December 7, 2012

Grenadina, a four piece experimental rock band from Kansas City (that have coined the tag “girlcore”), have announced their joining of the Fort Charter Records family. The band released their debut EP, Pretend For Me, independently earlier this year to excellent reviews, including…


“…dramatic atmosphere…delightfully complex melodies…” – CAMP Kansas City Magazine


“…simple complexities…vocalist, Katie Ford, sings each song with enough conviction and attitude you can’t help but pay attention to what she has to say…” – Indie Music Reviewer


“…depth and soul…shifts from sizzling leads to atmospheric notes to bombastic minor chords in an instant…” – Too Much Rock


The girls of Grenadina – Katie Ford (Vocals), Steph Castor (Guitar), Stefanie Petrozz (Drums), Mia Morrow (Bass) – are currently writing for their next record (and first with their new label home). Fort Charter founder, Nathaniel Lay, had this to say about the signing:


“We are a small indie label with big expectations for our bands and future. Not wanting to get held down by genre labels, I have made it a point to listen to anything sent my way, whether it be metal, rock, punk, techno, or something else. Grenadina was actually a band I reviewed for Lexington Music Press back when they released their EP, Pretend For Me. I absolutely loved it and its originality, so when the girls contacted me about the label, I knew I wanted them without hesitation. While they like to go by the tag of ‘girlcore’, that’s really a simplistic description for a band that is extremely diverse. They mold so many different styles together in their songs that you can’t help but be lured in. I’m very excited to hear the next record they are currently working on for us.”


Along with the announcement of signing to Fort Charter Records, and providing their debut EP for free at the FCR Bandcamp, Grenadina will be featured in the upcoming (12/24/12) release of Family & Friends Compilation (a free collection of music from the label).
