American songwriter JOHN GRANT tours his extraordinary debut solo album (an album made in collaboration with MIDLAKE) “Queen of Denmark” (MOJO ALBUM OF THE YEAR). His effortlessly rich, expansive baritone, couched in typically heartbreaking, lush melody, has finally found the wider audience it deserved for so long during his time fronting The Czars (formed 1994). His is a music is so undeniably beautiful, with truly unique lyrical outlook, ‘sad yet optimistic love songs, classy arrangements and a dark and handsome croon’- a very special night awaits.
“these are songs of impossible love, near-suicide and redemption, with an air of vastness and contemplation recalling Dennis Wilson's masterpiece, Pacific Ocean Blue”
