Grant Webb (Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica), the fearless bandleader, has been playing music since the early age of 7. Starting with the fiddle first, he grew into playing bass and drums. He got an early start playing music with his father, Brad Webb, in a variety of professional country groups. Music runs deep in the Webb family and Grant also would play shows and "jam" with his two musical brothers, Pat and Scott. Grant also worked with popular local Boise rock act, Abrupt Edge, playing guitar and backup vocals, touring and enjoying radio airplay of their music. His country roots were too deep and then Grant started Carolina Morning with some of the most talented country, blues and rock musicians in the valley.

After playing guitar for many years, he eventually found his way to playing bass. Now he enjoys playing both and has performed with a variety of bands ranging from reggae to southern rock and now the GWB.
Jeff Poole, originally from Washington state, was a "Navy brat", and grew spanning from the pacific northwest, California, Hawaii, and several states on the east coast. It was in 5th grade that Jeff became a musician, as a trumpet player in the school band. As a junior in high school, Jeff turned to the drums and never looked back. Jeff took his desire to be a serious musician by enrolling at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, California where he studied with Bill Schlitt and became immersed in the So-Cal music scene, watching many of his childhood heroes at live performances and sessions. As a consummate music fan, Jeff began to play with several different artists from southern California, touring a large portion of the United States, Fiji, Tahiti, and New Zealand. In addition to playing live as much as possible, Jeff also studied arranging and production which led him to assisting many church productions and rehearsal orchestras either playing drums, running sound, or doing copyist work for local arrangers. Working within the church industry opened the door for Jeff to relocate to several different states and play with a myriad of different artists and bands including: Justin Fox, Kip Fox (no relation), Sean Keith, Chris Saub, Mo Leverett, Randy Stoenhill, Jon Gibson, Benny Hester, Rick Munchow, Naomi Psalm, Denae Gardner, All Sons & Daughters, Kari Jobe, and Hillsong United just to name a few. Today, Jeff calls Boise, Idaho home where he lives with his wife, Kristi, and their 3 sons, Fox (who is becoming a great musician in his own right), Corbin, and Rylan (who plays saxophone in the high school band). Jeff is the Creative Arts Director at Bridgepoint church and manages/drummer for the 80's tribute band "Casio Dreams." He enjoys any opportunity to play as many styles of music with as many artists as possible!

"I love all kinds of music and the opportunity it provides to inspire folks. The biggest reason I love music...the thrill! Getting together to create something special and sharing it with others is an amazing rush for me. Kinda like winning the lottery mixed with skydiving (even though I haven't done either, but you could imagine!"
