Joshua Grierson / Bio

The sweat rolls down his brow
His entire body aches and weaves with some internal, now exposed dance
His fingers are rattling on his fret board like scattered bones on the sand
And the feet connected to his rubber legs, are stomping a new hole in the stage

Joshua Grierson is a 29 year old South African singer, songwriter and musician.

Over the last 10 years, Grierson has built the reputation of being one of the hardest working artists South Africa has bred and through his sheer bull-headed determination, has found himself supporting award winning acts like Finley Quaye, Yoav, Dan Patlansky, Laurie Levine, Josie Field, John Ellis, KONGOS, Tony Cox, Goodnight Wembley and Woodstock Mafia (as Big Exit), Gary Thomas, Plush and Taxi Violence.

In 2012, the South African music channel MK (R.I.P.) featured him on one of their Studio 1 specials and over the past 7 years, has been featured in Rolling Stone (SA), Full Circle, various community papers, and a slew of online press.

"Grierson’s central gift...is performances so gripping the world could be falling down around you and you wouldn’t notice." - Rolling Stone Magazine South Africa
“Whether you know it or not, and whether you believe it or not, Grierson is a rare and genuine talent.” – Jon Savage
