“Think Santana, only faster.” From Nova Scotia, Canada, Latin rock guitar virtuoso and composer Roland Grant is garnering a reputation for both his live showmanship and as a recording artist. His 2019 run of theatre and festival shows left a trail of audiences delighted and entertained, featuring a stellar supporting band with special guests.
Roland’s debut album Equilibrium (2018) is best described as Latin/nuevo flamenco meets rock and classical crossover. As an orchestral composer, Roland’s Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra premiered in 2019 with the composer as soloist. Other premieres include works for symphony orchestra, chamber music, and accompaniments to ballet and film. 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 has been a two-time finalist.
Roland officially endorses Godin Guitars.
