Biography

COBY GRANT


BIO:
Since the age of 16, Coby Grant has been performing professionally. Playing over 400 live gigs, she has performed at some of Perth’s most prestigious venues- including residencies at the Burswood International Resort and Casino. The recognition she gained around Perth led to a few high profile supports. In 2003, Coby performed in Kings Park as a support act for Marcia Hines' Valentine Concert. In 2004, she performed solo and live for Telethon. She also performed in New Zealand as guest support for Rick Steele and the Hot Biscuit Band at the internationally recognized New Zealand Masters Games in 2005. Also in 2005, Coby was a support act for Ross Wilson when he performed at the Carine Tavern. She has had a national interview and airplay with FOX FM’s Australia First program, as well as various interviews and rotation on commercial and community radio stations in Perth.
Last year, Coby made the move from Perth to Melbourne to focus more on her original material. Her EP, “Coby Grant Is Your Friend”, has since been recorded with a bevy of talented musicians playing on the tracks. Jonathon Zion on bass (Pete Murray), Elvis Algus on drums (renowned percussionist around Melbourne) and Steve Mackay on guitar (Al Slavik, Delta Goodrem) to name a few. Her launch at prestigious Melbourne venue Manchester Lane was on April 18th and a sold out show. Coby is an independent artist, organising and funding everything herself, including her recent tour and launch in Perth in July (where she played with her full band) and the Vic regional tours in August. She has received airplay on PBS and RRR, as well as various community stations in regional Victoria.
Coby’s live performing experience and ability to draw a crowd into her world when on stage is what sets her apart. Her songs are written straight from the heart and the acoustic/ folk style of music is easy on the ears. With influences like Carole King, The Eagles, Eric Clapton and Joni Mitchell, Coby’s songs are set to last. She is now focused on sharing her music with the rest of the world.
“Stunning debut EP by Coby Grant showcasing her growth as an artist and ensuring she is one to watch in the next few years.” www.cdsuite.com
“My name is Coby Grant and in the past year of my life, a lot has changed. I realized that I wanted to focus more on my original music. I took the next (and essential) steps towards achieving my short term goal of releasing an original EP. I completely uprooted... left my family, friends, comfort zone and support network in Perth to move interstate to Melbourne. I immersed myself in my music...and in different aspects of other music and learnt a lot about life, music, love, myself and people. My first offering is my EP, “At the End”. These songs reflect me and who I am as an artist at this point in my life. I am happy to have the chance to share the stories of my life with you.”
