An honest, acoustic, folk-rock, style, Grimick are an energetic group of singer/song-writers who never stray far from the essential ingredients - great rhythm, a contagious melody, and something to say. "Their vocal harmonies and songs stick with you well after they finish" (the au review 2010) With seemingly no upward limit to their vocal range, Grimick are capable of both power and tenderness, humour and passion. Combine this with ripping guitar solos, riffs and delicate acoustic counter melodies, smooth harmonies, earthy percussive rhythms and arrangements on conga, trumpet, ukulele and piano – and you have a special live act not to be missed. Their strength of song-craft and refreshing take on the folk genre, consistently crosses generations. From intimate bars and cafes to large concert halls and festivals, Grimick guarantee to captivate their audience with sheer vocal talent, mischievous banter, catchy melodies and that mysterious x-factor. Mick, Griff and Dr Fear, have impressed crowds & received outstanding reviews at festivals and premier live music venues all over the country including: Peats Ridge, Snowy Mountains of Music, Yackandandah Folk, Majors Creek-Braidwood, Illawarra Folk, Mount Beauty Music Muster, St Albans Folk, Wallaby Creek... The Basement (Sydney), The Vanguard, The Hopetoun, Bar Broadway, The Sydney Opera House... Grimick's latest 17 track album "Dazzle" has been described as "emotional and engaging…organic in flow and execution…tribal and eclectic" (Taxi). They are currently showcasing Dazzle and other new material across the country with rave reviews.
