History

Original members Michael P. Clive, Tim Smith, and Pat Morgan met in high school in the early 1990s. They were joined by guitarist Malcolm Scott in the fall of 1995 just prior to recording their first full length. The New Grand was recorded with Brendan McGuire behind the board and released in 1996 on Sonic Unyon Records. The album was met with fair reviews and modest sales. Steady shows in Southwestern Ontario, industry shows in New York, Toronto, and Austin, and a cross-Canada tour with Treble Charger followed. A video for "The Get Up" received modest rotation on Much Music.

The New Grand released their second album on Sonic Unyon in 1998 entitled Incognito. Incognito was recorded in Calgary, AB at Sundae Sound with Dave Alcock (Chixdiggit) producing.

The New Grand disbanded in 2000 but reunited for a one-off show at Call the Office in October 2003 for a CHRW benefit concert.
