August 20 → Jenn Grant and Daniel Ledwell

Jenn Grant’s voice and songwriting have been celebrated the world over by critics and industry alike. Described as one of the ‘best singers in the world’ by her ongoing collaborator, Buck 65 (CA), “captivating’ by The Line Of Best Fit (UK), and “work of a painter born in paradise” by The Sydney Morning Herald (AU). 

With the International success of her first album Compostela, Grant spent three years touring the world and playing to over 300 audiences, both festivals and in concert settings with sold out shows from London to Vancouver. Finally coming off the road, Grant retreated to the secluded studio by her home in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia. What emerged was a new dimension in Grant’s songwriting with new depths of sonic beauty and melodic landscapes, touching upon balladry, R&B and electronic music.

I wanted to explore new soundscapes,” Grant explains when describing how piano came to be the primary song-writing instrument on her latest album Paradise. Grant created new shapes and colours with an array of new instrumentation and song collaboration with producer Daniel Ledwell. I thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don’t feel like I really heard my own voice until recently.”
