Quote
There is an expression “an old man’s soul in a young man’s body.” With a keen sense of both music and the music business, as well as being unfailingly polite and articulate in conversation, Sam Kiszka exhibits a maturity far beyond his 18 years. Sam, who doubles on bass and keyboards, along with older twin brothers Jake (guitar) and Josh (vocals) plus drummer Danny Wagner comprise Greta Van Fleet, a band out of rural Frankenmuth, Michigan who have recently released the astonishing four song EP Black Smoke Rising. In a mere four songs, these young adults have managed to channel the excitement and revolutionary spirit of music that was happening in the late 60’s, a full four decades before they were born.

Much of the credit has to go with being raised in a close family within a tight-knit community of just under 5,000 people. There was always music in the air. Their father was a musician, and at family gatherings there were frequent impromptu jam sessions. The Kiszka boys eagerly absorbed everything they heard, and over time molded those influences into their own unique sound.

When listening to the album, one is struck by the undeniable resemblance to Led Zeppelin. Given an unmarked CD, one could easily think it was collection of newly released Zeppelin tracks. Sam is well aware of that, but at the same time tries to distance himself from the comparison. “You know what? That’s been a big thing ever since we started. There were early inspirations that definitely correspond, but we tried to not take too much away. We really don’t want to be associated with…it’s like being a cover band or some kind of imitation.
We want to be musicians on our own merit. So yeah, that’s definitely been a big thing. People always say that. But we try not to grab that too hard.”

"My hair stood on end when I first heard this band, similar to the first time I heard Jane's Addiction," exclaimed Marc Geiger, partner and head of William Morris Endeavor agency, "and that has been the response from everyone here in the music division.  This band has so much power and artistry - and they can write.  We are all very, very excited about them."

Jason Flom, the president of Lava Records shares Geiger's enthusiasm," Greta Van Fleet is the future of real Rock & Roll," he proclaimed about this exciting new band whom he personally signed, "They've got the chops, the swagger and the songs to make their mark as the band of their generation."

Although young enough that one might assume the members of Greta Van Fleet would be listening to Justin Bieber, their tastes are actually far more discerning. Crediting Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Black Sabbath, and other legends as their influences, it's no wonder that these guys have put together their own hard-hitting and classic sounding brew of solid rock and roll.

A worthy achievement, BD. They definitely did their Led Zeppelin homework.
