Who We Are...

We are Grits and Grouper Soup. We're a fun-lovin' folksy, bluegrassy rockin' quartet from a little hamlet just north of Philadelphia.  After playing together for just over a year fans across the tristate area are demanding a record. With your suppport we hope to record our first album and share our music with you and the world! 

  • Grits and Grouper Soup is made up of four members: Derek Austin, Landon Heinrichs, Nick Leahy and Greg Synnestvedt. One of the fun things about the group is that all of us write songs, all of us play multiple instruments, and we all sing. So, that keeps things interesting. Our instruments are guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, accordion, percussion and bass. You just never can be too sure who is playing what.
  • Though we have only been together for about a year, the band is thriving! We are cranking out songs together and playing some fun gigs. We are ready to take it to the next level.
  • Being musicians, naturally, we do not have extra piles of cash lying around waiting to be used. But we do have a big pile o'passion for music. Producing our first album together is important to us for multiple reasons. Beyond sheer fun, we hope that a well-produced CD will help us in spreading our music online, make a little money at our performances, and hopefully propel us into bigger things in whatever form that might take.

What We Need & What You Get

We are hoping to raise $7,000 to fund our first album. That money will go to a variety of uses including: Renting equipment, studio time, mastering of the album, and CD duplication. We will also be employing the talents of local engineer/producer, Brahm Genzlinger. 

We are particularly excited about the perks being offered. Check 'em out! And hey, if you think of a perk that's not on here... let us know and we'll see what we can do.

Thank you

Thanks so much to all of those who have supported us in making this happen.  A huge thank you is in order for all of our fans who have motivated us to share our art with the world. A Donation of any size is greatly appreciated. Just knowing that there are people out there who enjoy our music is cause enough for us to celebrate.  

Please, if nothing else, come out to a show! It's Always fun.
