Grand Analog is a Canadian hip hop band, formed in 2006 and fronted by Odario Williams. The group was conceived as a project combining R&B, jazz, reggae and rock influences into a hip hop style performed mainly on live instruments instead of digital electronics.[1]

The band released their first album, Calligraffiti, in 2007. A follow-up album, titled Metropolis Is Burning,[2] was released on May 26, 2009.[3]

Grand Analog won two Western Canadian Music Awards for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Recording in 2009 for Touch Your Toes EP and 2010 for Metropolis Is Burning.[4]

The band's third album, Modern Thunder, was released in Canada on August 20, 2013.[5] Modern Thunder was also released in various European countries on German label Ferryhouse Records; and released in the U.S. on Brooklyn label Feel Up Records.[6]
