Grizfolk – A Band Review

     Grizfolk is a band that has had as many names as it has songs. Presumably (and hopefully), they are preparing to release more material. Seven months ago, the band released “The Struggle” under the name “Griz Adams.” A good guess it that they ran into trademark difficulties with the owners of the long-ago television program “Grizzle Adams.”  The band name is now Grizfolk.
     Doesn’t matter what the call themselves if they keep generating this music. The three members of Grizfolk are Adam Roth, Sebastian Fritze, and Fredrik Eriksson. They identify their hometowns as Los Angeles and Stockholm, but they are currently based in Los Angeles.
     “The Struggle” by Grizfolk - At least for now, this is a Free, Legal and Recommended Download.

The Struggle Lyrics:
Brothers got room to talk
Messin' round on the block
Corner shops, stares, and stops
Mother rather not

You're young enough to say what you feel
So say what you feel, say what you feel
Sometime it's all that we got
Its all that we got, its all that we got then it's gone

He turns around and sees the world he knows fall apart
The struggle you are up against makes you what you are

Sneakin' round through the cracks
Doubling up the stacks
He said if God lives by the gun
I'll show the world a little more love

You're young enough to say what you feel
So say what you feel, say what you feel
Sometime it's all that we got
Its all that we got , its all that we got then it's gone

He turns around and sees the world he knows fall apart
The struggle you are up against makes you what you are
Don't turn around when you're alone running in the dark
The struggle you are up against makes you what you are.
