About this Act

Craig Grant has gained many years experience as a professional touring and recording musician. His first contract with EMI records lasted from 2005-2009 and saw him working at length with world-class producers Steve Osbourne in London, Rich Costey in New York and Atticus Ross in Los Angeles and is now available for wedding and other function work. His repertoire takes in artists as varied as Ray Lamontagne, Ash, Fleetwood Mac and the Beatles.

Nowadays, Craig enjoys the benefits of the quiet, countryside surfing lifestyle of Cornwall, and as such his tastes for what he plays have mellowed somewhat. He now loves nothing more than to indulge his love of his favourite artists, playing covers from a wide variety of genres and eras, all centred around a nice soothing, mellow vibe, which backdrops his unique and soulful voice.

From 2005-2012, Craig also toured as a contracted performer for a wide variety of genres, playing guitar, keys and singing in such acts as Union of Knives, The Big Pink, Admiral Fallow, Song of Return, The Endrick Brothers and more. This experience took Craig all over the world from many European and US tours and as far afield as Tokyo and Cape Town, playing crowds big and small, up to 1,000 people with Admiral Fallow at Glastonbury and 4,000 with Union of Knives at T in the Park.
