Formed in 2017 by vocalist Bart Thompson, Graduating Life started out as a solo project. That year, he released An Introduction to Rock & Roll, and toured the US four times. Over the past year, Graduating Life has grown into more of a full band, and Grad Life is their first official release together. Thompson, along with a few other members of Graduating Life, is also a member of bands such as Mom Jeans. and Just Friends.

When looking to describe a person like Bart Starr, there are many words that come to mind. Funny? Yes. Talented? Yes. “Memey?” Absolutely. However, none of these words come close to what actually defines Bart at his core, and what actually defines Graduating Life.

Savagery. This is the concept that would leave the world quiet when the beginning of Grad Life’s “There’s Only One Way” would play. Take this word to mean whatever you will. Whether it reminds you of a half-court shot, beating the buzzer, and overturning the outcome of a NBA Finals game, or if it makes you think about the blood running down a lion’s chin after it has secured its kill; Graduating Life will fill the role of whatever need be.
