Roland Grant sets his guitar ablaze with his fiery new flamenco single Nacido del Fuego — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

A scorching testament to the award-winning Nova Scotia performer’s incendiary guitar technique, Nacido del Fuego is featured on his debut album Equilibrium, and arrives with a video that puts his expertise on full visual display.

Equilibrium is a purely instrumental offering and was made to showcase the stylistic contrasts of my playing and composing,” Grant says. “The record was recorded entirely on a laptop in my kitchen, and the accompanying videos for songs Nacido del Fuego and Andalusian Nightfall were guerrilla filmmaking feats that involved myself and a buddy hauling the Marshall stacks to a 17-storey rooftop, having our cameraman drive alongside the borrowed Mercedes on a Segway to capture the closeups while his wife spotted the road for oncoming traffic, and generally using unconventional methods to make my vision a reality with limited resources.”

Awarded the prize for Best Tonal Music at the 2017 International Antonín Dvořák Composition Competition in the Czech Republic, Grant is a world-renowned composer and performer earning a reputation for well-refined musicality and a penchant for eloquent songwriting — including the release of a recent purely classical recording, Piano Quintet.

The Windsor, N.S., guitar virtuoso, composer and vocalist is predominantly influenced by Latin and Spanish-infused rock music. Grant’s relentless talent brings audiences to awestruck ovations as his mercilessly impressive flamenco guitar talent is a breathtaking sight to witness live. Frequently incorporating orchestral elements into his music, Grant is backed by a full band and special guest vocalists when he performs.
