Who is Greta Van Fleet?
Greta Van Fleet have taken the rock world by storm since first stepping onto the scene as teenagers in the mid-2010s. Made up of brothers Jake, Josh and Sam Kiszka, alongside friend and drummer Danny Wagner, Greta Van Fleet rocketed to stardom in 2017 after their single “Highway Tune” appeared in an episode of Showtime’s Shameless, driving it up the charts. The single’s chart-topping success landed the group spots in everything from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to a private performance at Elton John’s Oscar Party. From the Fires dropped later that year, topping Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart and officially launching the quartet to international fame.
In 2018, GVF released their debut full-length album Anthem of the Peaceful Army, once again rising to the top of the charts hitting number one on the US Top Rock Albums chart and number three on the Billboard 200. The group was nominated for a total of four Grammys at the 2019 awards ceremony, including Best New Artist, Best Rock Performance (“Highway Tune”), Best Rock Song (“Black Smoke Rising”), and Best Rock Album (2017 EP From the Fires).
Greta Van Fleet’s sound has been compared to that of legendary rock group Led Zeppelin, most notably vocals from Josh Kiszka that echo uncannily in the footsteps of Zep front man Robert Plant, with Plant himself citing the rising rockers as one of his favorite young bands. Although easily comparable to Plant and Zeppelin, Josh has stated that he drew on several of his favorite classic artists for influence, with the band citing The Who, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton and Keith Richards as inspirations for their hard-hitting sound as well.
