American singer-songwriter John Grant has been a solo artist since releasing his debut album Queen of Denmark in 2010. Subsequent releases Pale Green Ghosts (2013), John Grant and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra: Live in Concert (2014), and last year’s Grey Tickles, Black Pressure have been lauded for his vocal presence and confessional ballads.

Now based in Iceland, John Grant and his five-piece band will perform for the first time in New Zealand at the Auckland Arts Festival (18 March), and at WOMAD 2016 in New Plymouth (18-20 March).
