ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HOLE IN THE SKY: ANDY GRANT
Andy Grant performs dynamic acoustic songs with infectious riffs, bluesy vocals and astounding guitar work. He has performed in venues the world over, from Copenhagen to Melbourne and his live shows never fail to entertain whether as a solo performer on acoustic guitar, vocals and stompbox, or when fronting ‘The Andy Grant Trio’, backed by double bass and drums.

‘Hole in the Sky’ is the eagerly awaited second album from this highly acclaimed and hard working musician. An 11 track collection of self penned material, ‘Hole in the Sky’ is a wonderfully distinctive album, that celebrates the human state of being, questions the decisions made on our behalf and instils our hope for the future, all delivered in a raw, funky and inflective way

In contrast to the instrumental debut of ‘Spirals’ (2003), this new release provides a powerful platform for Andy to showcase his vocal talents. If Tom Waits had a younger brother he might just sound like this. Combine this throaty roar with a refined and rhythmic guitar style and you’re getting close to the Grant sound. Think Dave Matthews, Ry Cooder, Jimmy Page - a one man acoustic Led Zeppelin if you will.

Andy has wisely teamed his formidable guitar skills with a fine crew on selected tracks; top performances from Pete Maxfield (double bass), Dave Wallace (drums) and Steve Banks (riff and lead guitar on Indifference) ooze intuitive class.

‘Hole in the Sky’ has already begun making waves amongst local press and fans alike, receiving regular airplay on radio stations across the south coast, such as Original fm, Forset fm and Wessex fm. This fantastic album is a must have purchase for all those who appreciate a damn good tune from an artist who is heading for greatness in 2008.

Hole In the Sky
Having enjoyed his previous album Spirals, I have eagerly waited this one. I havent been disappointed...such great guitar sound, really rootsy music, pure and original, with the added bonus that Andy actually sings on this album. His voice fits perfectly with the music.
Fantastic, honest original work.

Eclectic is not a dirty word
When an artist is categorized as eclectic, it can sometimes mean that they are skilled technicians with no sense of direction. "Hole in the Sky" shows eclecticism to mean the range of human emotions. The tunes range from tracks that are almost pop mainstream (Prioritise) to to folk (Your Smile) to several varieties of blues. Yet one never feels Grant is searching. He knows what he wants to say and says it with intelligent lyrics rife with interesting rhymes and metaphors. The melodies are memorable but not simple. Not a weak track on here.
