Ernest Jenning Record Co. is proud to announce the new live video series "At Home With Grandchildren," featuring the Philly indie mainstays performing acoustic versions of songs from their as-yet-unannounced forthcoming record in various locations across their hometown. The series launches today with the new song "OK I'm Waiting," a psych-folk ballad featuring the soulful harmonies of lead singers Baby & Shylow.

Since their first release, Everlasting (2010), Grandchildren have evolved from pioneers of Philadelphia's burgeoning DIY scene into a musical powerhouse known for their unique cinematic blend of pop, folk and electronica. A product of a nomadic coming of age across three continents, frontman Aleks Martray settled in Philly to form a family of musicians that brought to life his eclectic sound - Roman Salcic (drums), John Vogel (synth), Russell Brodie (bass), and Adam Katz (guitar). Their following two records took them from the symphonic Golden Age (2013) to the pop-driven ZUNI (2015). 

After attaining "road warrior" status through several US tours and sharing the stage with such bands as Man ManO'Death, and Thievery Corporation, the group went back into the studio in search of a sound that would capture the raw unbridled energy of their live shows. Their new live video series and Twilight Music Festival appearance offer fans a glimpse into what's next for the ever-evolving band.
