Grizzly Goat (Folk Rock. Provo, UT.)

 

Alex Vincent- Charlotte, NC


Dobro, Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Bass, Lap Steel

 

Alex Vincent was raised constantly moving around. You can tell it had an impact on him by the way he shuffles his feet on stage. He's lived in North Carolina, Massachusetts, Montana, Wisconsin, Utah, and even Switzerland where he served an LDS mission. He plays in many different acts based out of Provo as well as doing his own solo stuff. He is a great asset to the band both musically and fraternally. He is a talented songwriter and has some pretty stinkin' awesome dance moves.

Aspen Hassell- Bend, Oregon


Fiddle, Bass, Piano, Guitar

 

Aspen is a native to the great State of Oregon. She competes on the BYU triathlon team and loves the outdoors. Even her job is outdoors, she teaches nordic skiing up at the Sundance Ski Resort. At BYU she is studying Recreation Management. Aspen loves dogs, kale, and anything done by Taylor Swift. She also served an LDS mission to Macedonia. Her first appearance with Grizzly Goat was as a guest in March of 2014 but eventually joined the band full time in February of 2017. She is currently engaged to be married to a rad environmentalist/graphic designer, Ian. If you want to see her nerd out, ask her about marvel movies. 

Ben Gibson- Las Vegas, NV



Mandolin, Guitar, Dobro, Piano, Organ, Banjo

 

Ben got his early musical training from his mother's piano lessons and playing french horn in the school band. He later moved on to the guitar, mandolin, and banjo. He has since been part of numerous folk bands including the Provo folk/grunge band City of Salt. He served a two year LDS mission to Germany. His hobbies include hiking, rock climbing, camping and longboarding. Ben is studying Digital Audio at UVU. He can grow a full beard in just under a week and is an excellent chef. You should ask about his breakfast burritos.

Nate Waggoner- Floyds Knobs, IN



Banjo, Guitar, Harmonica, Bass

 

Nate, who grew up in the Kentuckianna area, has always had deep roots in folk music. His grandfather introduced him to Jimmy Rodgers and his father introduced him to Bob Dylan. He picked up the guitar at age 13 and has since learned a few more instruments. He is a thought provoking songwriter whose songs are often themed in the outdoors, geography, and morality. He served two years as an LDS missionary on Panay Island in the Philippines. He is currently studying Wildlife and Wildlands at BYU. On top of this, he is happily married, has one daughter, another on the way, and two dogs. 

Scott Monson- Orem, UT



Drums, Percussion, Piano, Organ

 

Scott is the only Utah native in the band. He was raised in Orem, UT and attended BYU studying music. While at BYU he performed with BYU's touring folk ensemble. Scott is fluent on many instruments and is often called upon to suggest the pathway a song should go. He also plays in the local Provo bluegrass/celtic group Molly In the Mineshaft. He is a wonderful person to chat Star Wars with and the smoothest driver of all Grizzly Goats.
