The best kept secret in music

Press


He is a master guitarist and his writing has developed exponentially in the ensuing years.

I believe Grant Lyle has assembled the ideal compatriots at this stage and is ready to step onto the global stage. This is a polished, tightly knit unit. Their creative sensibilities are distinctive and their scope and appeal is global.

I trust you will endorse, as I do, the development of this great Canadian musical emissary.

Using a combination of tasty cover tunes mixed in with some remarkable original compositions Grant Lyle and Brotherhood is at the top of my list for enhancing a night's musical program.

Grant has always provided us with some outstanding performances. - Mike Stortini, Healey's

A good singer and songwriter who has obviously considered what it takes to distinguish his contribution from those of the legions of blues artists across North America. - Muzik Etc Magazine


"...a helluva picker." - Jack De Keyser


Lyle is one to watch in the future. Worth a listen. - Scene Magazine
