Not many people can claim to having been a DNA cover model (#127 in case you want to order a back issue) and almost having thrown up on Elton John. Steve Grand can, along with two impressive pop/ country albums – 2015’s All-American Boy and the stunning, just released, Not The End Of Me.

With over 18 million views on YouTube, a #3 album on The Billboard Independent chart, and one of the most successful Kickstarter music campaigns ever, Steve has not just broken the rules, he’s changed how to be a successful singer-songwriter in this era. A break-up with his boyfriend, toxic relationships, addictions, and daddy issues inspired the songs on the new album, which he describes as “cathartic, intimate and unfiltered Steve Grand”.

Imagine a gay boy’s pop/country take on Adele’s 21 and you’re getting close to what Steve has achieved with Not The End Of Me. He’s justifiably proud of it, too, especially since he made it all after getting sober. Steve Grand hasn’t been away, but Not The End Of Me feels like a welcome return, and not the end – more of a beginning.

DNA: Hi Steve! It sounds like you’ve been through some pretty serious heartache on your new album.

Steve Grand: Yes, and many different kinds of heartache at that. [Laughs.]

Was Not The End Of Me a way to creatively work through a relationship break-up?
