Known as one third of the legendary Husker Du, who were hailed as one of the most important and influential US bands of the 1980s. Following their break up in 1987, Grant Hart has continued to pursue his musical and artistic vision. His records have been eclectic, subtle, thematic affairs. ‘Hot Wax’ was recorded largely as a one-man affair in Montreal and Minneapolis studios, features guests including members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Silver Mt. Zion and Rank Strangers.
Grant Hart has created an organic rock album using classic tools to make modern art, creating psychedelic pop/rock soundscapes loaded with strong melodies, vintage instrumentation and a style that he admittedly owes in parts to his devotion for his friend Patti Smith. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see acclaimed visual artist, singer, songwriter and punk icon, Grant Hart, play exclusive solo shows this February.
