Michael Grubbs originally wanted to be a preacher, but before he switched over to being a musician, he had another career path -- to be an actor. Grubbs pursued a professional career in the theatre, and he performed in two musicals: "Brigadoon" and "Camelot." When he saw himself in the mirror backstage during Camelot, however, wearing tights and a robe, he realised that the theatre was not for him and he gave it up for music.
Michael Grubbs, a Virginia-born musician who started his musical career learning classical piano and choral techniques, is Wakey! Wakey!'s front man. Grubbs loves legendary composers such as Beethoven and Bach, and as he got older he became interested in rock stars such as Led Zeppelin and Billy Joel. After his stint as a theatre actor, Grubbs moved to New York and became part of the Lower East Side music scene. It was there that he was exposed to more accessible music, including artists like Regina Spektor. After their discovery on "One Tree Hill," the band signed to The Family Records, a New York-based label, and have since released three full-length albums.
Wakey! Wakey! was launched to stardom when it was discovered by the creator of the U.S. TV show "One Tree Hill," and their single, "War Sweater," was used on one of the episodes. After "War Sweater" debuted on the show, their sales took off, and Grubbs was offered regular cameos on the show to help promote the music. With that popular exposure, the band quickly took off, and since then, have become well known for the musical prowess and inspirational sound, combining classical music with pop. Since their television experience, Wakey! Wakey! has released multiple albums and took multiple concert tours across the world.
Wakey! Wakey!'s "War Sweater" reached No. 13 on the iTunes chart as soon as it debuted on "One Tree Hill." But that was not the last success for the band. Their album Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said The Last Time I Saw You reached No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseeker Chart and No. 106 on the Billboard 200 chart.
