After fleeing a job in a South African gold mine, Andy made ends meet playing original blues music on street corners from Melbourne to Copenhagen. Now residing in Dorset, he has earned a wide and loyal fan base, winning over audiences time and again with his original, rootsy mixture of Blues, Rock and Jazz. This award winning guitarist* mixes up soulful vocals with great tunes and mean fretboard skills.Now joined by jazz punk double bass virtuoso Simon Rushbrook, and multi instrumentalist film composer Lee Miller on Drums, the Trio take their many influences and tear them up on improvisational renditions of Andy’s eclectic and original songs.Drawing comparisons with artists as diverse as J.J. Cale, Dave Matthews, Led Zeppelin and John Martyn, the band are at home entertaining festivals, bars and anywhere people gather together to hear great live music. Their clean acoustic sound provides the solid foundation for musical genre hopping. A heavy rock riff can morph into a bluegrass tune, and then into a jazz funk groove without ever jarring or feeling out of context.The three musicians play with energy, passion and precision, always complementing each other and constantly striving to make each moment on stage special. By clocking upwards of 150 shows a year, Andy Grant Trio are becoming masters of their art: Good time blues music with great feel and no boundaries.’Really excellent music’ Phil Jupitus, BBC TV’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks’If you like strong singer/songwriters this is for you’ Blues Matters’Laidback, earthy and grounded, Grant's soulful acoustic rock arrives fully formed, mature and ready for anyone........Great Stuff’ Musician*’Best Overall Guitarist Yr 2000’ London’s Guitar Institute
