THE LEGEND OF SLIM GRITTY
Slim Gritty is an Australian Artist who in variable line-ups is no stranger to gigs and festivals both at home and abroad.
Slim draws on the timeless energy of the roots Americana genre, in particular Rockabilly and contributing styles of Hillbilly Country, RnB and Blues. Slim does not simply rehash the music of bygone eras, rather attempts to capture the spark to use as a foundation to build his own unique compositions. In which Slim crafts lyrical stories with a present-day relevance, sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always gritty.
The ability of Slims performances to morph between a rich heritage of styles. Finds him equally at home on stage, at festivals and events be they with a Country, Rock, Custom Culture or Blues bent. Slim leaves nothing on the field and delivers his shows straight from the heart. His depth and wide appeal also make him popular with both Mainstream and Indy audiences alike.
Receiving much acclaim amongst his peers, Slims debut Rockabilly style album ‘Movin On Down The Line’ was released late 2019 featuring the singles 'Another Man', ‘Gringo’, ‘One More Chance’ and
‘Movin On Down The Line’. He followed this up with a Roots Country/Hillbilly six song EP entitled ‘Lil’ Bit Country’ in 2021. Initially releasing as singles, the rich romantic Country ballad 'One More Kiss' and later the quirky track described as a Hillbilly requiem ‘Heading Towards the Sun’. These releases thus far have garnered considerable worldwide radio airplay, digital traction and a developing profile recognition.
There are now more tunes in the pipeline some for impending release.
