Grant Haua - Awa Blues (LP)
NIEUWE VINYL LP bestellen
"I picked up guitar when I was 13 and ended up trying to make a living out of it. Its hard to tell growing up and gigging in a small country like New Zealand but for the past 10 years that’s what I’ve been trying to do! I’ve been the singer/songwriter/guitarist on 7 studio albums over the years, 5 of them over the last 9 years, In 2010, my first solo album “Knucklehead” got good reviews in NZ’s premier music magazine. It opened a few doors for me on the local festival circuit. One thing leads to another and I ended up meeting percussionist Michael Barker [Neil Finn, John Butler Trio]. Together we formed “Swamp Thing” and for the following 8 years we wrote and toured regularly.The feeling and imagery I’m trying to convey in this album is pretty simple. I’m a huge fan of simplicity. I want the listeners of this album to feel like they’re guests in my home and like the songs, my home is pretty simple but it’s warm, cozy and friendly. You don’t have to take your shoes off when you come in and you just help yourself to anything. So welcome. This is my place."
