Speaking to ABC12, Greta Van Fleet guitarist Jake Kiszka talked about their global success as a young band.
He said that ‘it’s still is a bit weird because you don’t know how to interpret that.’ Here’s what he said:
“We’ve grown up playing together really and we’ve probably been a band for about six years. There has been no rest for how quickly, I think, things have gone. It’s all happened in within under a year and a half.
We’re in a situation within the industry, and within the musical world, where people now associate us and talk about us, and that’s a bizarre thing right off the top. It’s still is a bit weird because you don’t know how to interpret that.”
On Grammy Awards, he said:
“It was an explosion of people reaching out, that’s kind of how I found out. It was just like, ‘Hey, congratulations, congrats.’ And I was like, ‘On what?’ ‘Oh, four Grammys.’ ‘Nice.’ It was great, it was more shocking because it was so unexpected.
For me, it entirely takes me to a different world. It’s completely transcending. It’s like, that’s the best feeling in the world, so you keep coming back to it.
It’s a very emotional personal thing – when you’re looking at someone in the audience. Sometimes they cry, sometimes they get a big beam and they blush or they smile or wave. It’s such an intimate thing that I’m sharing with someone else and they’re sharing with me.”
