Since originally parting the ways with his band Love and Money in the early 1990s, singer, songwriter and guitarist James Grant has released five acclaimed solo albums, most recently 2010’s Strange Flowers, with his first best-of collection released in spring 2012.

Drawing from a broad palette of pop, folk, soul, country and blues influences, and interweaving his solo compositions with Love and Money favourites, James twins darkly literate, melodically lush songcraft with his richly potent vocals and virtuoso guitar work, leavening his performances with dashes of wickedly acerbic humour.

With Love and Money also back on the road and in the studio, Grant sounds like an artist now in his prime. ‘A ballsier Gram Parsons but with whiskytinged Scottish poetry for lyrics’ The Word ‘One of Scotland’s most gifted songwriters... and what a marvellous singer he is, too, spanning darkly burnished baritone depths and searing soulful intensity’ Scotsman info@activeevents.org.uk www.jamesgrantsongbook.com James Grant
