Released April 14th, 2020

Jenn Grant expands to a galactic realm never before explored by the songwriter with Paradise, this time Grant points the compass towards the epic and intimate and explores a new depth of sound.

“I wanted to explore new soundscapes,” Grant explains when describing how piano came to be the primary song-writing instrument. Grant created new shapes and colours with an array of new instrumentation and song collaboration with producer Daniel Ledwell. “I thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don’t feel like I really heard my own voice until recently.

Paradise feels personal and emotive, but it was born from a vantage point of watching as the world flexes amidst great joy and sorrow. Through her lyrics, Grant tells us of the world she watches from a distance, touching on global themes like love, growth, faith, longing, sex, death and reinvention. 

With the International success of Compostela, Grant spent three years touring the world and playing to over 300 audiences, both festivals and in concert settings with sold out shows from London to Vancouver. Finally coming off the road, Grant retreated to the secluded studio by her home in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia. What emerged was the album “Paradise”  an album that sees a new dimension in Grant’s songwriting with new depths of sonic beauty and melodic landscapes, touching upon balladry, R&B and electronic music along the way.

 

“Galaxies” is the first single from Jenn Grant’s upcoming album ‘Paradise’ which is came out on March 3rd, 2017.

Paradise’s songs reach out with world-weary awareness, that’s most evident on lead single “Galaxies,” a song that is the aural equivalent of star-gazing. “I pictured people standing at the edge of the earth, hands outstretched, asking, ‘What is bigger than us, than any of this?’ Grant says.

Jenn Grant’s voice and songwriting has been celebrated the world over by critics and industry alike. Described as one of the ‘best singers in the world’ by her ongoing collaborator, Buck 65
