I’d never heard of James Grant or the 80’s band that he was in ‘Love and Money‘, though I understand they were quite succesful. The first work I heard of his was when he wrote several songs, played guitar, and involved in production on Karen Matheson’s solo album ” The Dreaming Sea”. I was knocked out by his songs, each one telling a story and guitar work so subtle and economical, clearly a very accomplished artist. There’s a completeness to his songs, which becomes enveloping.
I’d like to hear more of his work.
This is “My Father’s Coat”. It is a long song, a very moody video, typically laid back guitar work which erupts in the last 3 minutes into a stunning guitar outro….
