Fast Five: GRICE



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

My earliest memory was performing aged 4 years with my brother for the parents and friend etc we had some curtains that could be drawn by a pull-cord and a bay window which was our stage. I always new it was song writing and music that was the thing I needed, I’m very stubborn like that!

How would you describe your music?

The music is a restless and shimmering cocktail of electro-acoustic glitch, art rock and avant-pop synthesis.Sonic missiles aimed at the heart – musical alchemy-pop.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve just completed and released Propeller the new solo album – the response has been very positive. Now I’m engaged in the live Propeller set working with some uber-talented musicians and will be performing some live dates both in UK and in Europe – I’ll also performing some live sessions to radio and filming these to stream on-line.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why? 

There are so many – Art Tatum – he could play the piano and I would hum a melody, Jon Hassell – but vocally I would love to duet with Siouxsie Sioux

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Talk Talk – the Colour of Spring – if I had to listen to an album on a loop this would be it – also would remind me of old Blighty, or One Giant Leap – this album is so varied and incorporates so many cultures that one of the tracks is bound to strike a chord with any natives that I might stumble upon. But mostly its just a damn fine record with beautifully produced songs that are very moving. Sorry picked I two!
