Julie Grant is set to play The Head of Steam in Newcastle on 10th March, bringing what has been described as ‘heavenly vocals’ to the intimate venue. Grant’s reputation as a fantastic singer precedes her. And, supported by her band, their collection of acoustic and electric semi-autographical melodies are fine additions to the North East music scene.
With appearances on live television and radio performances, including BBC Music Sessions, Grant has kept herself – and her band – busy, continually spreading the word of her catalogue of music.
Julie Grant received the title: “Best Voice in the North” by acclaimed publications such as Guru Magazine, The Northern Echo and Paint It Red. And live television and radio performances, sold-out gigs, and personal in-store acoustic sets saw CD and merchandising sales rocket, earning her a second title: “The North’s Finest Artist.” Her long overdue return to the music scene is something to be celebrated. The line-up may be new, but the songs and voice are as distinctive as ever.
Tracks from her collection include ‘Excellent Animal’, ‘Mother, I’ve Won’, ‘One In Three’ and ‘Crash Out She Said’. Fans will be hoping that these tracks, along with the rest of her collection, make an appearance at The Head of Steam. Whatever the set list, I am sure fans are in for a great night of live music. There is something to be said about seeing a band you love live: you can listen to the tracks 100 times online or on your iPod but when you hear those tracks live something takes them to another level.
Tickets are priced at £6.00 on the door or can also be purchased at wegottickets.com.
