Bio

Listening to Angie Grant’s debut CD, Don’t Worry Daddy, is a lot like meeting with Angie Grant, herself. Both are bold and elegant while remaining poignant and down-to-earth at the same time. To the Oakville based singer, songwriter, session musician, and recording artist, music and performance are Life itself. In fact, it’s hard to imagine Angie without a guitar in her hands. She has a voice of silky smoothness with a dash of late-night-soul, and is equally comfortable laying down classic rock riffs as performing 1930’s jazz standards.

Her repertoire is rooted in a myriad of musical styles, genres, and eras, from Bessie Smith to James Brown, Joni Mitchell to Led Zeppelin and the Beatles. Don’t Worry Daddy stands as an exhilarating and ethereal amalgam of the varied styles she absorbed while performing in a full spectrum of underground scenes from across Canada, to New York and Japan.

Don’t Worry Daddy, a confessional look at life in her twenties—a free spirited time in which Angie reveled in pleasures, acquired experience, and ultimately discovered her unique voice—showcases only the very best of an entire decade’s worth of songwriting. These thoughtfully crafted and artfully arranged original tunes have a jazzy, come-hither Pop and R&B feel, featuring skillful instrumentation by Angie on guitar, bass, and vocals. Some songs examine interpersonal relationships and how happiness seems to come in fleeting moments of closeness and passion, while others exhibit a sublime sense of whimsy in the face of adversity. Angie wrote, arranged, performed on, and co-produced the album along with veteran Film and TV music producer/composer, Jono Grant. She considers the time spent writing the album to be an emotional metamorphosis from youthful idealism to mature self-actualization. Don’t Worry Daddy marks the dawn of what is certain to be a lengthy, richly rewarding, and innovative musical career.

The album standout track, the charmingly melancholic cabaret-style tune, “Don’t Worry Daddy”, portrays the determined, optimistic idealism of the Artist confronting life’s harsh realities. In contrast, the hauntingly spacious and richly textured tune, “Bangin’ at Yang” extols the virtues of abandoning one’s self to the moment.

Aurally idiosyncratic, it is an intoxicating mix of lush intonations and lonesome lyrics sure to burn into the memory. Gorgeously sung and inspirational, “Song for Zoe” is a swingy lament featuring lush, layered textures, tender lyrics, and muted trumpets amidst an atmospheric jungle—a savvy, modern-day, lullaby. Vividly rendered and musically earnest, “Further Away” is a raw and biting R&B song of disenchanted love. The lyrics are poignant and relentlessly contemplative. “Live On” plays out as a provocative and rousing concoction of driving Ska rhythms and youthful indiscretions. It is both bold and mesmerizing.

A self-taught musician who now keeps a regular roster of music students, Angie says she’s fortunate to be doing what she loves. For Angie, music, like life, is a personal journey demanding endurance, versatility, and dedication. A mature artist with a mature vision.
