Details

John Grant – Piano/Vox/Keyboards
Chris Pemberton – Keyboards/BV’s/Piano

A rare stripped–back live show in the iconic Great Yarmouth Hippodrome as part of Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2020, where John will perform as a duo playing songs from across his celebrated career.

It’s almost ten years since Michigan-born, Reykjavik-based singer songwriter John Grant released his debut solo album Queen Of Denmark lacing sumptuous soft-rock ballads with spacey synths and icy soundscapes. Since then, Grant has released a further three solo albums, each evolving so that his enduring love of synth pop now takes centre stage. What remains constant though, is his distinctive, rich baritone voice and exquisite songwriting that draws on personal battles and the absurd, horrific, beautiful occurrences of everyday life. It’s his songs, sometimes brutal, often heartfelt, always unblinkingly honest and laced with his trademark candour that earned him a BRIT Award nomination for International Male Solo Artist in 2014.

His most recent release, 2018’s Love is Magic is his most electronic record to date. Its fast paced collection of electro synth pop confessionals and disco workouts marry sharp, witty diatribes with melancholic ballads, marking Grant as one of today’s most compellingly idiosyncratic artists.

‘a unique songwriting talent.’ The Guardian



Teddy Thompson

Singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson, famously the son of singer-songwriters Richard and Linda Thompson, joins John Grant on stage with a unique voice that is at once rock and county, then pop and folk.

‘one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of his generation’ The New York Times
