THE LEGEND OF SLIM GRITTY
Slim Gritty is an Australian singer/ songwriter/ musician who in variable line-ups is no stranger to gigs and festivals both at home and abroad.
Slim draws heavily on the timeless energy of rockabilly and the gravy boat of roots music styles honky tonk, hillbilly, RnB and blues that merged to create the initial rockabilly spark. This ain’t mere homage though, Slim’s not here to simply rehash traditional licks, melodies and refrains. His is music for today with lyrics to match. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always gritty.
A seasoned performer over the years Slim has performed with much loved bands including The Convertibles and more recently with Americana/ Rockabilly influenced 'A Band Called Twang'. Feeling the time to be right for a little musical independence, he’s now also channelling his creativity and musical chops into a more intimate individual persona to wit Slim Gritty:
Recorded live raw, pure, and undiluted Slim’s debut album ‘Movin’ On Down The Line’, was released late 2019 to much acclaim amongst his peers.
Slim dropped a featured single from this album for worldwide digital release. A moody little number 'Another Man' that’s well worth downloading.
Lately Slim has been having fun working on a Roots Country/Hillbilly project. By way of an appetiser from this project, scheduled for release on 21st October 2020, will be a rich romantic ballad 'One More Kiss'
