Artist Story

Growing up in Sudbury, Ontario, I played the guitar as much, and as often, as I possibly could. I play everything from folk to blues, but I am a self-proclaimed folk rocker. I road-tripped my way to the North, playing various gigs and busking along the way. What I found at the end of the road was a community that embraces local music and encourages it to thrive.

I have played music with quite a few musicians since I moved to Yellowknife in 2009. I have always written songs and poems on my own though. If I write a new song, I don’t need to shy away until I think it is perfect. I feel comfortable to test it out on a crowd and get a feel for their reaction. Here, everybody is very relaxed and supportive of the local music scene.

I am fortunate for how much live music I get to play here. Other than talent I think a major element to being a musician is time – the more I play, the better I get. By filling up a space with my sound, I am able to build myself as an artist, over and over again.

Artist Bio: 

Grey Gritt is a little bit of soul mixed with a handful of blues, and a hefty serving of metaphors with a dash of black tattoos. Here you'll find a folk-rocker with a captivating voice and the guitar work to match.
