Daniel Grimsland on SoundBetter

Highly experienced as a touring and session musician, producer, songwriter, composer, and recording/mix engineer. I work remotely or in studio. Also available for production sound and boom mic operation. Rates are flexible, depending on the project, contact me for more info.

Originally from the Hudson Valley Region of New York, I now live in Los Angeles California.

I have been a long time member of the Woodstock, NY progressive rock band ‘3’ (bass), and founded my own rock group in 2012 called “The Grape And The Grain” (lead vox/guitar/producer/writer). I have had the pleasure of working with many great artists, in many different genres of music, and I'm always looking to make new and interesting music.

Some of the artists I’ve worked with include, Eric Francis and Vision Quest/Planet Waves FM Podcast (various instruments/record/mix/master), Weerd Science (bass/guitar), 9Theory (bass), Rhett Miller (bass), Jim Weider's Project Percolater (bass), producer/drummer Jerry Marotta (bass), Jaden Larue (co writer/various instruments), The Little Miss (bass), and Bob Haligan Jr. with his group Ceili Rain (bass).

I love to work in any genre, and have done everything from play jazz/rock fusion with members of The Band (Jim Weider), hip hop with members of Coheed and Cambria (Weerd Science), and made television transition music with a drummer legend and a member of the Old 97’s (Jerry Marotta and Rhett Miller).

I also make full instrumental productions, and always have unfinished ideas floating around, so let’s collaborate!

I’m happy to work within your budget.

Endorse Daniel Grimsland
  1. Review by Gabe Lehner (9 Theory)

    First off Daniel is a super legit, professional, and just awesome bass player! I've hired him for live shows and plan to do studio work with him in the future as well. He is also really great on guitar and many other instruments too, and is an experienced and really talented music producer with a great home studio having all the means to make a legit record. And most importantly Daniel is a really solid, easy-going, personable, great guy, which is crucial to the proper dynamics of playing and recording/creating good music and having it be super fun, as it is supposed to be :)

    I've worked with Daniel on numerous occasions both live and in the studio. He's a consummate professional. He approaches music with his heart wide open and his soulfulness is undeniable. A super talent. Don't you just hate people like that ...

    I've worked with Daniel both in a live show capacity and as a producer/engineer. He's incredibly talented, patient, always offers up great creative ideas and works hard to always make sure the final product is the absolute best it can be. I highly recommend Daniel for all your production/engineering/guitar/bass needs. He has such heart and love for music, and that really shows through in the quality of his work.

    Dan is one of the most positive and creative people I have worked with in my 10+ years in the industry. Anything from crafting a track with him, to improvising free ambient noise-rock or strumming two acoustics and writing a brand new hook seems to take on a sense of ease with him. It’s California vibe with New York work ethic and that’s something that is both rare and valuable in a producer today.

    I hired Mr. Grimsland in 2015 to run the board for a recording project. It turned out that he's a talented multi-instrumentalist, an excellent producer and first-rate collaborator. He's able to move from instrument to instrument seamlessly, either taking direction or taking leadership as needed. He's both efficient and imaginative. He can blend into the background or move to the front; he can write; he can sing; he's just fantastic to work with, and I always look forward to it. In fact, I fly him from Los Angeles to NY any time I can, and we dependably make interesting, excellent music.
