Canadian guitar virtuoso and composer Roland Grant is garnering renown for a live showmanship style which ceaselessly brings audiences to their feet. His genre-spanning influences are best described as Latin and Spanish guitar meeting rock and classical crossover. He is supported live by a stellar band and features a special guest vocalist with each appearance.
Roland’s studio releases to date are his debut album Equilibrium (2018) and his purely classical Piano Quintet (2021). As an orchestral composer, Roland’s Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra premiered in 2019 with the composer as soloist. Roland was awarded the prize for Best Tonal Music at the 2017 International Antonín Dvořák Composition Competition held in Prague, Czech Republic, of which he is a two-time finalist.
