NewSong is proud to introduce 2019 finalist Grant Maloy Smith! The Kingston, RI-based singer-songwriter will join his fellow finalists onstage at Isis Music Hall on Saturday Nov. 23 for the 18th annual NewSong Final Competition.
Grant is songwriter heavily influenced by country/roots music — boasting an artful blend of country, bluegrass and folk. Grant has performed at Carnegie Hall and won numerous awards, including two Grammy certificates. One of his songs was turned into an award-winning children’s book, launching him into the world of publishing. When he isn’t playing music, Grant is also an actor.
We asked Grant about his musical inspiration, songwriting process and what music news he has coming up in the Q&A below.
Connect with Grant on his website, Facebook page, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram. For more information on attending this event, please visit our Facebook event page. Purchase tickets to the NewSong finals at Isis Music Hall on Nov. 23 here.
