Bio

At the heart of it, Melbourne based Stephen Grady is a songwriter. His aim is precise; mastering the craft and getting in touch with the words and music on a personal level. And it is this in-depth, soul searching approach that shines through on his new album Wonder, out October 23.

He will release (and re-release) both new and old music over the coming year; a chronology of sorts that highlights the evolution of an accomplished songwriter with a career of ups and downs in the industry, much of which has given Grady plenty of grist for the mill when it comes to creating meaningful art.

“Fame has never interested me; its always been about the songs meaning something to someone.”

And for us that is just a bonus.

Grady strikes a perfect balance of sparce folk and balladeer-blues, with Nick Drake and Jose Gonzales undertones, 'Wonder' is a world class composition.

Stephen Grady's on a roll with the releases in 2020. It's a mellow roll at that, an amiable forward motion down a verdant valley.
