Saturday, Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— Contemporary singer-songwriter Grant Stinnett will perform at Brandon Music on Nov. 11. Stinnett has a passion for creating a powerful full-band sound with a single acoustic guitar. Through the use of a customized guitar, and looper pedal, Stinnett blows the stage away with bass-lines, guitar, drums, lead vocals and backup vocals all at the same time. Phish’s Mike Gordon described Grant as “Brilliantly energetic and mournfully soulful at the same time. A real one-two punch of a performance.”
Stinnett believes that every person feels a need somewhere deep inside to connect with one another and positively affect one another in some way, and he uses music as an emotional vehicle to speak a deeper truth. “Music is the purest form of emotional language I’ve ever known,” he said. “It has a way of transmitting true feelings to people no matter the language they were taught to understand. When I’m on stage playing my music for people, I feel emotionally free in a way I don’t seem to experience anywhere but the stage.”
With a following of over 90,000 fans on social media, and video views ranging in the millions, Stinnett’s growing popularity is clearly apparent. Recent tours have included shows at The Sinclair (Cambridge, Mass.), Rockwood Music Hall (N.Y.C.), Tupelo Music Hall (N.H.), Berklee College of Music (Boston, Mass.), and other quintessential venues across New England.
This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2017, celebrating arts in Vermont.
