CD single

Another first, a review from a new country, Canada. What can I say, itís very well sung and played rock music. The first track "Come alive" starts off with a great riff, reminds me a bit of the Stones. Grant has a great voice which is well suited to this kind of music, he also plays a mean guitar which is in evidence all through this 3 track disk.

Track 2 "In deep" another good track and like the first one is uptempo and has you nodding your head and toe tapping. Super guitar playing and has a good feeling about it,

Track 3 "Itís worth it." Slower than the others but still has that rock blues feeling to it.

Summing up I enjoyed this little piece of Canadian culture and I am sure if you like Free, Rory Gallagher or other bluesy rock bands like these you will too. Check him out at and as the last track says "itís worth it."

This is the second CD I have from Canada from Grant. This is different to the first one I had which was a bit more rockier. The tone of the tracks on this album are very much more bluesier. The tracks have been stripped back to just acoustic guitar, harmonica & percussion. They are none the poorer for this as Grant’s vocals favour this sort of music very well. The album is very laid back and is ever so easy on the ear, track 5 "Mellow down easy," aptly describes the mood of the album. My standouts are "Fare you well," "Survive," "Don’t go no further," and the love song on the end "Come rain or come shine." Grant has a great voice which sounds as though it has matured by playing in clubs full of smoke, a bit like Joe Cockers. He plays the guitar well and is well supported by the other two members, Roly Platt on harmonica and the Percussionist Michael Sloski.

I highly recommend this album and hope that they get the success that they deserve.
