«Peter La Grand» - biography, albums, songs, video clips

Firmly rooted in the musical traditions of folk and Americana, the music of Peter La Grand is both familiar and unique. Though his songs echo the heritage of such musical luminaries as CS&N and Cat Stevens, and bear comparison with such contemporary artists as Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) and Sufjan Stevens, La Grand’s music is set apart by a deep and passionate lyricism and unique instrumentation. A native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, La Grand started playing the guitar in high school, and soon began writing his own songs. At the age of twenty, he bought a van, traveled across America, and performed wherever he could.

A gifted multi-instrumentalist, La Grand plays guitar, dobro, lap steel, banjo and percussion. La Grand’s former band, Bunkbed Nights, shared bills with - among others - Broken Social Scene and Crooked Fingers. Backed by his extensive studio experience, La Grand was a founding member of Dynamite Sound Project in Grand Rapids (MI), working on a number of recordings there. Currently based in Vancouver, B.C., La Grand will spend the next year playing concerts throughout the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia in support of his album. He is currently based and performs in Vancouver, B.C.
