45 Voll-Damm Festival Internacional de Jazz de Barcelona: John Grant

Music, Pop
John Grant

Pop-rock is full of musicians who work out their troubles through their craft, but so is jazz, of course. Very few, however, have done it with the cynicism, the singularity and the deep voice of John Grant, a tormented soul who was the leader of The Czars and who, from the worst of his demons, has managed to purge disconcerting creations like that which made up part of his solo debut, 'Queen of Denmark' (2010) and the recent and more electronic 'Pale Green Ghosts' (2013).
