Grant was very personable, professional and a great musician. My friends really enjoyed his selection of music. I’m planning on having Grant return to my home for my Spring Fling and End of Alimony Lallapalooza!!!
Pop, Soul, Heavy Rock, Blues, R&B, and Jazz all have a place in the Swift Glidden repertoire. Taking songs he knows and loves from different eras and genres, Grant carefully arranges classic songs for guitar, voice and loop pedal to create something instantly familiar and yet truly unique. He manages to get crowds dancing even as a self-accompanying soloist, but if your event calls for even more accompaniment, he has a wide network of fantastic accompanists on call for his duo and trio formats, and beyond.
His original music is similarly inspired by an eclectic mix of 60's pop and R&B, jazz standards, 90's alternative, as well as the choral, baroque and classical music he was trained in as a boy. Impose Magazine said it "brilliantly recreates a modern mashup sound."
Grant co-wrote, performed and engineered Mac/Glidden's "Fall Into The Dark", released in 2017. Their music video for the song “Mountains" was featured at Sidewalk Film Festival and Indie Memphis Fest, among others. The Huffington Post called his previous musical duo project The Candy Apples, one of "5 Must-See Indie Summer Concerts in NYC" in 2014.
