Life of Live - James Grant
Update - I've now put the correct link up (although apols as in wma format which means you wont be able to preview it). Strangely this was originally going to be a Love and Money song until it eventually surfaced on Sawdust in My Veins, and I think a version will appear on the new love and money lp Devil's Debt
James Grant , formally of Friends Again and Love and Money, is still the best singer and guitarist that most people have never heard of. I saw him lay a small venue in London in the midst of the set of solo lps he put out that seemed to get mellower with each release.
I just remember the the set being quite reflective with even the more upbeat songs draped in a world weariness. The crowd was sparse which was a real shame as the quality of the playing matched his flawless vocals.
I've posted one of his more mellow songs which gives a flavour of the intimacy his was able to generate
A voice to melt to - or at least have a malt with
This is the Last Time - James Grant
I wait with bated breath for the new Love and Money lp due out later this year
