John Grant's concert has been rescheduled from May 2021 to Friday 1 October 2021. All tickets remain valid for this concert
John Grant's new album Boy From Michigan is shaping up to be a leading album of 2021. He brings his massive tour to Coventry to perform music from across his celebrated career
It’s almost ten years since Michigan-born, Reykjavik-based singer songwriter John Grant released his debut solo album Queen Of Denmark lacing sumptuous soft-rock ballads with spacey synths and icy soundscapes. Since then, Grant has released a further three solo albums, each evolving so that his enduring love of synth pop now takes centre stage. What remains constant though, is his distinctive, rich baritone voice and exquisite songwriting that draws on personal battles and the absurd, horrific, beautiful occurrences of everyday life. It’s his songs, sometimes brutal, often heartfelt, always unblinkingly honest and laced with his trademark candour that earned him a BRIT Award nomination for International Male Solo Artist in 2014.
His 2018 release Love is Magic is a fast paced collection of electro synth pop confessionals and disco workouts marry sharp, witty diatribes with melancholic ballads, marking Grant as one of today’s most compellingly idiosyncratic artists.
