Grim Stone (Chris Kusiak)

I grew up in small town Saskatchewan, getting my first guitar from the Sears catalogue at age 10. Early influences of mine were bands like Nirvana and Silverchair. As the years went by I moved to Rocky Mountain House, Alberta where I began joining numerous metal bands with heavy influences of Acid Bath and Crowbar. Around 2012 I had moved away again and decided to begin writing and performing on my own. Throughout the years I have played in many different places in Alberta and most notably, Folk On the Rocks in Northwest Territories in 2016. I am a husband, a father, and a musician that loves sharing his creations.
