Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

One of my facebook friends posted someone I was not familiar with. Grant Stinnett is this star's name. He's a bass guitar player. His style is engaging and unique. He mixes the technical with musical creativity. I have to admit that I usually like a voice to follow instruments, but he is quite different - especially in the 2nd song featured.

Grant picked up the bass for the first time at age 14. Soon after he picked up the bass he was performing in places like Berklee College or Music Performance Center. 

Grant has continued to play and perform, and also educates others on how to play. He has toured internationally as a solo musician.

It's soon Christmas time, so I'm loosely sticking with the theme of Christmas. The first song is Run of the Angles. When you listen close your eyes, and picture angles. Tell me what kind of angles you think of: Snow Angles, Angles on a Christmas tree, Ghostly Angles, or perhaps something different.


Primal is more experimental than Run of the Angles. I enjoy it a bit more.

 

Fallen Heroes is pretty cool to!

He has amazing skills! Run of Angels makes me think of drinking warm mint cocoa while Lil Pumpkin makes snow angels :)

You do find some interesting people when you are doing your posts on music.

That is the most awesomest guitar/bass player I've ever heard (next to my husband of course - he's standing over my shoulder) hehehe - he wanted to hear him too so I gave him his FB to go look on his own computer. Thanks so much for sharing and Merry Christmas!

Very talented indeed. I like how Ai summed it up. Very descriptive of the snow angels and cocoa so I'll steal what she said and say ditto lol.

I loved the introduction of Grant Stinnett. I will be sure to visit his website and social media connections. He's very talented. None of these songs really made me think of Christmas, but I enjoyed listening to them a lot. My personal favorite is Run of the Angels. Of course, it didn't make me think of any kind of angels, but I liked it. Thanks for hitting the dance floor with us this week. I hope you and your family have the merriest Christmas ever and may God's blessings follow you throughout the New Year!
