More than a decade ago, Edward Droste started Grizzly Bear as a bedroom recording project after college. Today, Grizzly Bear is a four-piece act renowned for its shimmering brand of harmonic, experimental pop, with an international fan-base and four albums to its name (the most recent, “Shields,” came out in 2012). In the second installment of the “What Made Me” video series by Poppy de Villeneuve, Droste reflects on his childhood musical education on Cape Cod, how he began writing songs as an adult and what it’s like for a band to grow up together.
