JAMES GRANT – LIVE AT MAC ARTS -FRO 10TH MAY
Picture
James Grant, Scottish singer-songwriter who was frontman of the band Love and Money.
Grant’s first solo album, Sawdust in My Veins, was released on Survival Records in 1998. It featured long term collaborator Donald Shaw, Karen Matheson, harmonica player Fraser Speirs, drummer James MacKintosh and the BT Scottish Ensemble. After a label change to Vertical, the same lineup was retained for My Thrawn Glory in 2000. I Shot The Albatross, a collection of poetry set to music, was released in 2002. It included interpretations of works by Edwin Morgan, EE Cummings, and William Blake. The gentle, introspective Holy Love, followed in 2004, featuring contributions by dobro player Jerry Douglas and ex-Thrum vocalist Monica Queen. Strange Flowers, a more upbeat collection, was released in February 2009

Grant also scored the film The Near Room and has collaborated with Capercaillie’s Karen Matheson, performing live and writing songs for her solo records The Dreaming Sea, Downriver, and Time To Fall.

In conversation with radio presenter Billy Sloan on BBC Scotland’s Music Through Midnight show on 5 June 2015, Grant revealed he was writing material and suggested it was more likely to be for a solo album than another Love & Money project.
