I’ve always been interested in both the musical elements of language and the language elements of music. For me, writing songs is all about bringing words and music together to create layers of meaning and tell stories.

Grant Carruthers is not just a musician; he's a soul-blues inspired troubadour whose voice, songwriting prowess, and instrumental mastery captivate audiences worldwide. Hailing from the vibrant Gold Coast, Grant's musical journey is a testament to the power of soulful expression and boundless creativity.


With a dynamic repertoire that blends soul, blues, rock, and hints of jazz, Grant commands the stage with his emotive vocals, mesmerizing saxophone solos, and soul-stirring guitar melodies. His live performances are nothing short of electrifying, whether he's enchanting audiences with intimate solo shows featuring live looping or taking the stage with his band for an unforgettable musical experience.


Having graced stages across the globe, Grant is no stranger to the international music scene. His soulful crooning and masterful instrumentation have left audiences spellbound from London to Miami, earning him a reputation as a consummate performer and a true ambassador of Australian original music.


At the heart of Grant's music lies a deep passion for storytelling. His evocative lyrics compel listeners to engage with emotion and introspection, exploring themes of love, loss, and the human experience with honesty and a light dusting of humour. Listeners all find their own unique meaning in each song as they glimpse a reflection of the human condition, infused with soulful melodies and infectious grooves that resonate with audiences of all ages.


"A must see if you're in the mood for a treasure hunt. These perfectly crafted songs fizz and pop with little nuggets of jazz and soul allied to some great lyrical moments. Like finding a fiver in your sock drawer, it will leave you smiling."

Whether he is serenading a packed club or commanding the stage at a festival, Grant Carruthers' music transcends boundaries, connecting people through the universal language of music. With each note he plays and every word he sings, Carruthers reminds us of the power of music to uplift, inspire, and unite us all.

Grant has been writing and performing from a young age and after studying popular music at the Queensland Conservatorium, released a self-produced acoustic EP Like a Lion. After touring around Australia and getting his sea legs working as a solo musician abord cruise ships in the Caribbean, Grant moved to London and started working on his latest EP, Conversations.

Conversations is Grant’s first fully produced release featuring some of London’s best session talent and recorded in studios across London between 2016 and 2018. It deals with the theme of communication and how integral it is to the foundation and continuation of relationships.

Grant’s understanding of poetry can be heard throughout his songs, and his ability to create phrases that sit well on the ear as well as the tongue makes his songs broadly accessible and highly memorable.

The authentic nature of Grant’s music lies in his command of sophisticated harmonies and rhythms, and throughout his work you may also hear elements of Thirsty Merc, Gregory Porter, Marvin Gaye and Earth, Wind & Fire.
