Marty Duda reviews artist of the week John Grant

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 16 March 2016

Although John Grant began his musical career in the 1990s as a member of a band from Denver called The Czars, it's his solo work over the past 6 years that has brought him the most acclaim. His debut solo album, Queen Of Denmark, found Grant teaming up with alt.country band Midlake, while 2013's Pale Green Eyes explores 80's electro-pop. Grant's most recent album is 2015's thrillingly eclectic Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. John Grant performs in New Zealand this week at Auckland's Civic Theatre and at WOMAD.
