Bio:  Nashville-based, alt/psych-rock band, Krantz, have released their new single, “Run Away With  Me,” from their upcoming EP, The Pennock Tapes which is due out April 27. After leaving his home state of Iowa, traveling the world, touring over 200 days per year with a band called, The Effects, and opening for bands such as the Kings of Leon, Shinedown, Foreigner and the Toadies, Jeffrey  made the decision to “live the dream” and eventually landed in Nashville.  Krantz hit the studio between tapings of MTV’s music competition, American Supergroup where he eventually became a finalist in the competition. Following the release of his self-produced solo album, Krantz  joined forces with Erik Theiling (bass), Tee Tallent (keys) and Monica Lewellen (percussion/vocals), who he met on the Broadway circuit.
