Formed in 1995 by Rob Grad, this Venice, California based band combines inspired songwriting, clever lyrics, and alternate guitar tunings to create its’ own brand of neo-rock.

Superfine has just released their second cd–”Unsound” which has been met with positive reviews. This self-produced album was recorded entirely in Rob’s apartment living room and kitchen yet the sound quality holds up to anything you’ll hear on contemporary radio today.
Rob Grad was the bass player and a main songwriter in the band Kik Tracee signed to RCA Records in 1989. “We got signed right out of high school. "Everyone has a first band. Ours just got further than some. I hadn’t even heard a Sonic Youth song yet.” The first time he did hear a Sonic Youth song, however, it changed his life.

Bio

“Rob Grad presents his own world in a way that places you in front of the mirror. It’s refreshing aside today’s homogenized mainstream sound.”

Rob Grad was the bass player and a main songwriter in the band Kik Tracee signed to RCA Records in 1989. “We got signed right out of high school. Everyone has a first band. Ours just got further than some. I hadn’t even heard a Sonic Youth song yet.” The first time he did hear a Sonic Youth song, however, it changed his life. Soon it became obvious to Rob that he could no longer continue on the same artistic path, and left Kik Tracee to start out on his own.

In 1999 Rob formed a studio project in Venice, California called Superfine. Superfine recorded 2 cds, a 7” vinyl single, and appeared on the 1999 soundtrack to the television show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” which has sold over 200,000 to date.

Rob is currently in the studio working on new material.
