About John Grant

Delivering unguarded ballads and scathing rants in a rich baritone, singer/songwriter John Grant writes about life as a gay man, hypocrisy, and injustice with dry wit and unflinching honesty. While his literate songwriting is a constant of his music, his sound evolved over time. His 2010 solo debut Queen of Denmark built on the lush sound of his former band, the alt-country-meets-dream pop act the Czars, but Grant incorporated more of his enduring love for synth pop and industrial music on releases such as 2015's Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. On 2021's Boy from Michigan and 2024's The Art of the Lie, his increasingly personal and political songwriting made the most of his one-of-a-kind ability to switch from ironic to heartfelt at a moment's notice.
