John Arthur Grant – composer
John’s music brings together the two main strands of his early influences – classical and rock music – to forge his own distinctive styles. His post-classical compositions can be strongly rhythmic, but there’s a lyrical and melodic side that he likes to give equal attention to. Similarly, he’s a lover of simple emotionally-lifting chord movements, but also likes to turn to complex harmonic structures on occasions. Interweaving these seemingly diverse elements makes for music that is enthralling and often challenging, but that always holds interest.
