Biography

Gretanova; a Sheffield based alternative metal/rock band who in their six year stretch have gone through several lineup changes. Made up of four musicians with varying influences, something that makes song writing more interesting.

Formed in 2006, Gretanova started out as a female fronted post-grunge/country outfit based in Leeds. They featured lead & rhythm guitars, bass and kept timing using a drum machine. After 5 months and a few ideas for songs they replaced the drum machine with surviving member James Hart who took over the grungy drum sound well and adding elements of his own.

With a few months of practising, and the lineup firmly in place, Gretanova finally began to think about gigging and recording. With several gigs out the way, the band went into the studio and recorded their demo recording “Your Children Are Not Special”, named after a famous Bill Hicks routine.

After a couple of years gigging and song writing founding members Charlie Hill, Andy Glynn and Dunstan Blay decided to move onto other things leaving Gretanova as a 2 piece. Luckily new guitarist Matt Churchard was found very shortly after and with Lee switching to Bass allowed the band to continue writing as a 3 piece.

After a few months of auditions Gretanova evolved into a 5 piece band. With vocalist Ben Moorhouse bringing with him much need synth and guitarist Mark Vincent adding power and structure, the band continued to gig with a much harsher metallier edge than previous lineups.
