GRETA VAN FLEET Has A Fan In ROBERT PLANT

According to The Pulse Of Radio, GRETA VAN FLEET has a fan in legendary singer Robert Plant. The LED ZEPPELIN frontman told Louisville radio station 91.9 WFPK that he's heard the young Michigan-based group, saying that vocalist Josh Kiszka is "pretty good... There's a job out there for him." The irony is that GRETA VAN FLEET's sound has been compared to ZEPPELIN, with Kiszka's voice similar to Plant's and the musical style close as well.

Josh and his brother, guitarist Jake Kiszka, told The Pulse Of Radio that the band's chart-topping first single, "Highway Tune", was a tribute to all the rock music they grew up listening to. "When we first realized that we had to be writing our own material, and we really wanted to, you know, I sat down and wrote the riff," Jake said. Josh added: "Jake kind of did the riff and I threw some vocals in there and it was kind of really an ode to that appreciation for rock 'n' roll music at its, you know, finest."

GRETA VAN FLEET rocketed to the top of the rock radio charts last year with "Highway Tune". The track is taken from the quartet's debut EP, "Black Smoke Rising", which came out last April. Their latest single is "Safari Song".

The Michigan-based group is reportedly working on its first full-length LP and will head out on a European tour this March.

More headlining and festival dates will follow in late April, May and June.
