Gren (recording artist)

Gren (recording artist)

Gren was a power-pop trio consisting of Brett White (vocals, guitar), Marcus Gonzales (bass) and John "Possum" Hill (drums).

Gren formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in the spring of 1994. The band attracted the attention of I.R.S. Records President, Jay Boberg, who offered the group a contract resulting in the release of their first full-length album, Camp Grenada, in 1995. Recorded in 10 days and produced by Tim O'Heir (Sebadoh, Belly, Dinosaur Jr) at Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles, it was promoted by several North American tours including a support slot on the Ramones' Adios Amigos Farewell Tour in 1995 and 1996. The record's playful feel and grungy pop-punk sound drew immediate comparisons with Green Day and Nirvana.

Gren had a Billboard Top 40 Hot Mainstream Rock radio single with "She Shines" in 1996 [ [http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/esearch/chart_display.jsp?cfi=376&cfgn=Singles&cfn=Hot+Mainstream+Rock+Tracks&ci=3022615&cdi=7031821&cid=02%2F03%2F1996 Billboard Top 40 Hot Mainstream Rock radio single] ] and [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EdOJDSw4Ow a video for "She Shines"] was aired on MTV's 120 Minutes in January of that same year.

After the fall of I.R.S. Records in 1996, Gren disbanded.
