Grant Crusor

After rifling through the record collections of his parents, his friend's parents, and his family, Grant knew at an early age he had an odd obsession with vinyl. This passion led him to begin South Rhodes Records but before he even sold his first record, you could find him placed squarely behind a set of 1200s. Expect soulful tunes of all eras with a focus on the classic and modern era New Jack Sound.
