In a world that is driven by social media feeds and algorithms, Jordan Benjamin (better known as his musical persona, grandson), isn’t afraid to go against the grain and boldly stand up for his beliefs on topics such as racism, inequality, and mental health. 

Known for his strong lyricism and unpredictable performances, the dynamic singer/songwriter has proved he can keep up with just about anybody as he has toured with artists such as alt-rock icons The Smashing Pumpkins, pop-punk queen Avril Lavigne, and nu-metal trailblazers Deftones. With multiple back-to-back tours under his belt, a late night talk show appearance and even a feature on the soundtrack for the blockbuster film The Suicide Squad, the grandson train shows no sign of slowing down any day soon.  

Recently, The Noise was able to catch up with Jordan while he was out on the road opening for none other than heavy hitters Bring Me The Horizon which also featured support from hardcore staples Knocked Loose and emerging star siiickbrain. To see what the outgoing noise maker had to say about performing in front of a brand new fanbase, growing up in a digital world as well as what the future holds for grandson, be sure to read below.
