Grandpa Was A Lion is Justin D’Onofrio. He is 24 years old and from Goshen, Connecticut, a small rural town located in the north-west corner of the state. A college drop-out who worked for his uncle painting houses and saved up money to move to Brooklyn. Lived in Brooklyn for a year and worked with a producer in the city but didn’t like the way his songs were being bent to the producers ear. It was a wonderful experience and he learned a lot but in the end decided it was not for him. So he left New York and came back home and armed with a used ibook, a USB plug-in mic, his dad’s old Luxman K-1 tape deck, a Funmaker Custom Wurlitzer Organ and his guitar he began writing and recording what would become “The Whalestoe Tapes“.
