Windsor, NS Flamenco & Rock-Instrumental Guitarist Roland Grant’s New Single is Born of Fire
“Nacido del Fuego” is Available Now!
Canadian guitar virtuoso, composer, and vocalist Roland Grant is garnering renown for a live showmanship style that ceaselessly brings audiences to their feet. RG is an Award-winning flamenco artist and his genre-spanning influences are best described as rock fused prominently with Latin and Spanish guitar, at times incorporating orchestral elements as he is supported by a stellar band as he sets speakers ablaze with his fiery new single, Nacido del Fuego — available now!
A scorching testament to his incendiary guitar technique, Nacido del Fuego has Grant masterfully commanding the frets as a puppeteer of a passionately penned prose on the music that moves you most. The track is featured on his debut album, Equilibrium, and is matched solely by his exquisite music video showcasing his expertise.
“Equilibrium is a purely instrumental offering and was made to showcase the stylistic contrasts of my playing and composing,” Grant says. “The record was recorded entirely on a laptop in my kitchen, and the accompanying music videos for songs ‘Nacido del Fuego’ and ‘Andalusian Nightfall’ were guerrilla filmmaking feats that involved myself and a buddy hauling the Marshall stacks to a 17-story rooftop, having our cameraman drive alongside the borrowed Mercedes on a Segway to capture the closeups while his wife spotted the road for oncoming traffic, and generally using unconventional methods to make my vision a reality with limited resources.”
Roland’s studio releases to date are his debut album Equilibrium (2018) and his purely classical Piano Quintet (2021). As an orchestral composer, Roland’s Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra premiered in 2019 with the composer as a soloist. Roland was awarded the prize for Best Tonal Music at the 2017 International Antonín Dvořák Composition Competition held in Prague, Czech Republic, of which he is a two-time finalist. Grant earns a reputation for well-refined musicality and a penchant for eloquent songwriting — including the release of a recent purely classical recording, Piano Quintet.
Endorsed by Godin Guitars, Grant’s relentless talent brings audiences to awestruck ovations as his mercilessly impressive Flamenco guitar talent is a breath-taking sight to witness, and he incorporates a live and special guest vocalists when he performs.
As the endemic looms ahead for the world, Grant’s touring schedule has been reignited by his passion to perform stage after stage, night after night. In 2022, armed with his guitar, his ability to mesmerize audiences, and present his astonishing ability to enchant and ignite the stage through his compositions and multi-instrumental agility, Roland Grant is Nacido del Fuego, and so is his music.
