Explosive Latin/rumba flamenco guitar with a rock edge.
Think Santana, only faster.
Latin/rock guitar virtuoso and composer Roland Grant (formerly Roland Smith) is excited to bring his explosive brand of world music to the world. Hailing from Hants County, his music reflects his passion for genre-bending Latin-infused melodies tinged with rock and classical influences. His shows feature a mix of instrumentals and guest vocals that rock the house and leave audiences wowed.
Roland’s fingers effortlessly slide up and down the guitar, creating a fast-paced rhythm that makes the listener want to get up and dance.
Roland’s debut album Equilibrium (2018) is best described as “nuevo flamenco meets Steve Vai meets John Williams”. As an orchestral composer, Roland’s Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra premiered in 2019 with the composer as soloist. Other premieres include works for symphony orchestra, chamber music, and accompaniments to ballet and film. Roland was awarded the prize for Best Tonal Music at the 2017 International Antonín Dvořák Composition Competition held in Prague, Czech Republic, of which he has been a two-time finalist.
Roland is officially endorsed by Godin Guitars, a Canadian company that serves such artists as Roger Waters (of Pink Floyd), Myles Goodwyn (of April Wine) and Steve Stevens (of Billy Idol).
