The Grass Is Dead are a force of Bluegrass and Grateful Dead music. Pickin’ and grinnin’ is what they do best, and they have been adapting Grateful Dead songs in their own bluegrass style since 1998. With a few new members on the roster, the GID are hitting the road in 2015 harder than they ever have. Refreshed and all tuned up, they will be hitting cities from South Florida, to New England to the West Coast. With 3 albums under their belts (1 of which was picked up by Grateful Dead Merchandising) they plan to spend the Dead’s 50th anniversary touring and preparing for their 1st ever live album release!
Tiffany Huggins Grant is known to Nashville music fans for her original, captivating blend of soul, blues, and country. Her evocative lyrics and music draw heavily from personal, yet universal experiences, and has been described as Americana Soul. Born in Atlanta, and a songwriter from the age of 16, Tiffany was a finalist in the Georgia Music Industry Association's annual songwriting competition and shortly thereafter won the John Jarrard Scholarship to the prestigious NashCamp songwriting camp. At age 17, she performed at Nashville's renowned Bluebird Cafe.
Jonquil Child, Tiffany's new 12-song album, boasts 10 original numbers that bring her honey-and-crystal voice and her songwriting to the fore, reveling in her gift for melody and in her creative vision. Grant’s songs perfectly balance the sweet and the bitter. Her arrangements reflect the signatures of great American roots music in their tremolo guitars, pedal steel, soul-fueled keyboards and perfectly measured rhythms, while also incorporating apt-but-unanticipated strokes of classic rock and psychedelia in soulful and spirited tunes like “If You Only Knew” and “Fighter.” And Grant’s writing draws unsparingly on her experiences combatting alcoholism and depression — even while celebrating the triumph over both that Jonquil Child represents.
