NEW MUSIC FROM GREN- SEPTEMBER 2018
Gren has released ‘Quiet’, a new download- album of songs and guitar.
Listeners can download the album for free, but you can also contribute by donating any amount.
Magnificent Creatures is Gren’s first full band based album. In 2015 Gren toured the album to fantatastic live receptions across the UK and Europe, building upon the success of Gren’s previous solo albums, Winter Fires (2013) & Songs To Scythe Back The Overgrown (2012). The album reflects a significant change in his musical direction, and incorporates intricate string arrangements and subtle vocal harmonies.
Gren’s live work captures his “phenomenal” guitar playing & poetry driven lyrics, backed up by beautiful vocal harmonies and string arrangements from band members Kath Ord & Sarah Smout. The drive of the music and the orchestral flourishes sweep the audience into the narratives and subtly embellish the songs. However, never one to stand still for long, Gren soon embarked on a new music project and the new material will be available on line in late 2018.
