Grant Duncan – Featured Artist

Grant Duncan - Featured ArtistGrant Duncan has a unique story. We’ve reviewed his music here in the past, and we were so intrigued by not only his story but his music that we just had to have him on as a featured artist. Lucky for us 10PM our time is 11AM his time. You see he’s a New Zealander, or a “kiwi” as they’re known, who is living in Tokyo, Japan.

Grant Duncan – Featured Artist

It was a pleasure to have Grant on episode 138 of Indie Music LIVE! making it a truly international show. I’m really into what Grant is doing. He’s not rich and famous but he’s staying true to his artist-self by continuing to create music and play it even though he’s in a foreign land. When you listen to his music you can definitely hear some classic influences such as The Beatles, The Monkeys, etc…

Grant relocated to Japan because he married a lady from there and they had a child. They wanted to make sure that their son had some Japanese living experience so Grant is currently making a living by playing music constantly and teaching English. I admire this dude! He has such an interesting story and I suggest you take a listen to his interview with Dave in the video below.

In the Deeper With Dave segment Grant goes into depth about what it’s like to be a musician playing in bars all over Tokyo while being a foreigner. He says that Japanese people are very responsive to his music but in a different way than you might expect in New Zealand, The UK, or even America. He says that they are intent listeners and don’t get crazy with spontaneous applause and fanfare but rather wait respectfully until the end of the tune. Interesting!

I’m curious to know what YOU think about the music of Grant Duncan. Let me know by getting in touch on social media. Also, let Grant know that you heard his music here first on Indie Music Plus! As always, thank you for reading and continuing to support indie music of all genres from all over the world!
