Grizfolk formed in Los Angeles when Swedish producers Fredrik Eriksson and Sebastian Fritze met guitarist and vocalist Adam Roth in 2012, who were joined by bassist Brendan Willing James and drummer Bill Delia later that year. The band's debut EP, From The Spark, was influenced by the fact they are literally vagabonds. In an interview with Best New Bands, Fritze said, "We are constantly on the road and draw a lot of inspiration from the places we visit and the people we meet. We usually picture a landscape and imagine what that place would sound like and what story would fit in that environment.” Roth attributes Grizfolk’s ease in songwriting to the fact that he, Eriksson, and Fritze have written well over 1,000 songs together over the past few years, be they fully fleshed out or mere snippets. Some of these songs made it onto the band's debut full-length studio album, Waking Up The Giants, which was released on January 8th, 2016. Since then, the band has toured all over the world and released "In My Arms" featuring Jamie N Commons.
