Massey Hall presents
Jenn Grant’s voice and song-writing has been celebrated over the world by critics and the industry alike. Described as one of the 'best singers in the world' by her ongoing collaborator, Buck 65 (CA), “captivating" by The Line Of Best Fit (UK), and “work of a painter born in paradise” by The Sydney Morning Herald (AU).
Grant expands to a galactic realm never before explored by the songwriter with Paradise. While her twice JUNO-nominated (2014 Songwriter & Contemporary Album of the Year) album Compostela focused on Jenn’s own personal experience of loss, this time Grant points the compass towards the epic and intimate and explores a new depth of sound.
“I wanted to explore new soundscapes,” Grant explains when describing how piano came to be the primary song-writing instrument. Grant created new shapes and colours with an array of new instrumentation and song collaboration with producer Daniel Ledwell. “I thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don't feel like I really heard my own voice until recently."
Watch Jenn Grant perform music from her latest album Paradise, along with fan favourites as a part of our Live at Massey Hall series.
