Gren (band)

Gren was a power pop trio consisting of Brett White (vocals, guitar), Marcus Gonzales (bass) and John "Possum" Hill (drums).

Gren formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in the spring of 1994. The band was signed to I.R.S. Records and released their first full-length album Camp Grenada in 1995. Recorded in 10 days and produced by Tim O'Heir (Sebadoh, Belly, Dinosaur Jr) at Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles, it was promoted by several North American tours including a support slot on the Ramones' Adios Amigos Farewell Tour in 1995 and 1996. The record's grungy pop-punk sound drew immediate comparisons with Green Day and Nirvana.

Gren had a Billboard Top 40 Hot Mainstream Rock radio single with "She Shines" in 1996 and a video for "She Shines" directed by Mark Miremont was aired on MTV's 120 Minutes in January of that same year.

After the fall of I.R.S. Records in 1996, Gren disbanded.
