Grant Carruthers LIVE @ Deck Acoustics
Soul-blues singer-songwriter Grant Carruthers returns to Australia riding the waves of his new sound after a 4-year stint developing his craft in the UK. Influenced by the likes of John Mayer, Allen Stone and the sounds of Motown, Grant’s songs showcase his penchant for catchy melodies, poetic lyrics and sophisticated music.
Grant has been writing and performing since the age of six, and in 2013 wrote, recorded and produced an acoustic EP, Like a Lion. After touring Australia and playing at the Brisbane Australia Day Festival and The National Folk Festival, Grant moved to London and started working on his next EP, Conversations, which was released in May 2019.
Conversations is a tasteful blend of blues, soul and rock, lyrically exploring communication from a range of angles. It features the singles ‘Give Me Your Word’, ‘Unfinished Wars’ and the tongue-in-cheek finale ‘Conversation’.
“A must see if you’re in the mood for a treasure hunt. These perfectly crafted songs fizz and pop with little nuggets of jazz and soul allied to some great lyrical moments. Like finding a fiver in your sock drawer, Grant will leave you smiling” – DartFest, UK
