Returning to Grills & Guitars, accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist, Grizzly has been entertaining audiences most of his life appearing at clubs, pubs, arts centres and festivals all across the south of England. His distinctive raw vocals and original music ranges from folk songs to foot-stomping Roots & Blues tunes that keep his loyal followers coming back for more. His mastery of lap slide guitar is a particular crowd pleaser. Featured instruments include, Weissenborn lap slide and electric lap steel guitars, acoustic guitar, Dobro, stomp box, djembe and harmonica.
Grizzly performs both solo and with his full band, Grizzly and the Grasshoppers. He has played support for Elles Bailey, Wille and the Bandits, and The Eskies; and was featured artist on Express FM`s `New in the House`. Grizzly is sponsored by Anderwood Guitars and featured in the Anderwood Sessions.
