Shortly after establishing 'indie-unsigned web radio' in '05 an idea clicked with me: I was listening to more great songs collecting and playing independent and 'unknown' artists than I would ever get to hear on commercial radio. I had found my tribe: songwriters, musicians and DIY record producers and labels.
: John Cale, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Thunders, Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Brian Eno, Bryan Ferry, Bruce Cockburn, Lemmy, Lennon, Pagliaro, and more locally Gord Lewis, The Forgotten Rebels, The Ugly, and all of the artists at the "Rolling Thunder Review" show: December 1st and 2nd, 1975: Maple Leaf Gardens - Toronto, Canada.

As described by various A & R types I have never met
from North America and Europe:
- "You have a punkish/60s/psychedelic edge to your sound....
- "Your music has a cool gritty vibe that works well with the lyrics that you write.
- "Your vocal delivery is original ...has a real raw kind of feel that fits your songs well...
- "You've got a gift for writing very poetic, associative lyrics...
- "Unique verse lyrics... I can hear the Kinks influence in your verse melody! This has a great, convincing retro sound...
- "You have a great aesthetic about your music."
- "...a collage of edgy rock with a swagger and mojo not found since early J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) or the times of Kurt Cobain. Whiskey driven vocal grittiness, obscured with clarity, Grundy pushes the envelope of cool to the next level."
