Q&A with Jenn Grant

Tell us a bit about 'Lion With Me'

I wrote this song for my husband. It reminds me of where we live in Nova Scotia, Canada and how lucky I feel that I get to take him with me on tour.

What are your plans for 2017?

I’m very excited about releasing my new album Paradise and playing all these shows. I really think these will be the best shows of my career, because I love the new songs so much.

Are you excited about your European tour?

I love playing in Europe! Out last tour over there was special, and it will be great to build on that experience, and bring something new to all our beautiful European fans

What was the first gig you ever played and what's been the best so far?

The first gig I ever played was to roughly seven people in a little place called 'Salvation' in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I was too scared to invite anyone! I think of those seven people they were there just working or something.

If I’m honest, I don't feel like there's been a best gig. Every show is special and unique in some way. Some are more magical than others though for sure. They all mean something to me in their own way.

What are you listening to at the moment? Can you recommend anything new from Canada?

A lot of The National and Sharon Van Etten

My friend Rose Cousins has just released her new album, 'Natural Conclusion'. She has an incredible voice. Go check it out!

Paradise by Jenn Grant is out on 3 March
