Boston’s Donald Grunge (@donaldgrunge) premiered his debut album In Gleem I Trust and brought some attention to his city. For the first time in recent memory, Boston is on the map with multiple acts making national attention in Bia, Cousin Stizz and Millyz. It’s looking like soon, Donald Grunge will be at the forefront of this uprising of Boston talent. The 11-track In Gleem I Trust LP includes production credits from fellow Boston-native, 10K Projects/Internet Money producer Isaiah Valmont (@IsaiahValmont). The album rollout began with the gripping visual for “Money Talks” and wrapped up with a stamp of approval in the music industry: a sold-out private listening event in Downtown Boston.
“Making the album was like a burst of energy,” Grunge said in a statement. “I started working on it when I was in the Internet Money house for the first time. I was so inspired and excited to make music there. I brought my vision to Daymian (producer) & he brought it to life.”
Grunge quickly attracted and gained the support of major industry players such as Quentin “Q” Cuff (@innerviewq), longtime road manager and confidant of the late Mac Miller. The two connected and joined forces during the COVID-19 Pandemic after Q listened to Grunge’s demo track “Guitar Grunge” on SoundCloud. Valuable connections such as this one have helped Grunge gain national attention as a talented player in the industry. Grunge’s determination to exercise his creativity and pump out original sounds is what is going to continue bringing in new listeners.
