Granvil Poynter / Bio

Here is what people are saying about the new Album from
Granvil Poynter
Granvil Poynter is a true blues name if I ever heard one and like the man himself, his blues is real.…The biting slide, throbbing bass, churning harp and organ … This Texas twanging man in black has a voice reminiscent of Charlie Musselwhite and his deliberate yet biting guitar has a weight that exceeds his large frame…

Roger & Margaret White
Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine

“…Poynter’s debut CD, Another Day Singing the Blues, is long over due…. His voice is a hybrid of Lou Reed an Johnny Cash … and he proves to be a consummate bluesman…Granvil Poynter and the great musicians that were gathered together for this project should be proud of the work they have done. This is a very nice blues-inspired disk and I hope you get a chance to give it a listen.”
Rex Bartholomew- Blues Blast Magazine

“The Music, Lyrics, and Vocals of Granvil Poynter, on his new release "Another Day Singing The Blues", did nothing less than simply captivate me. An amazing album from beginning to end, with the title track being one of my favorites of the year.”
John Vermilyea -Blues Underground Network

“The debut album of Granvil Poynter…has become an absolute hit! You have those albums where after the first listen you have the knowledge that you will welcome one of the best discoveries of the year…”Another Day Singing The Blues “ is one of them…In our opinion true lovers of blues guitar will not hesitate, but must include this release in their collection…”
Luc Meert – rootstime

“Granvil can wring the blues out of an electric guitar with a
Fervor that bespeaks influences like Stevie Ray and Eric Clapton,
but it’s the voice that elicits the big question: Where in
hell has this guy been all of these years?” “You sound as good on the street as you do on a disc, and I think that's the acid test. Enjoyed it.”

Sam Kindrick- Action Magazine

Granvil Poynter has a true blues sound, like an undiscovered 50’s bluesman transported to present day and corrupted with modern rock and blues, the real deal, blues with a twist. Granvil “learned his craft in the roadhouses of his native Arkansas, and by continuously honed his skills in the bars and juke joints of the Lone Star State. His gateway to the blues was the incredible work of popular artists Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan and once he got a taste of this he dug deeper and discovered the marvel of the old school masters, including (among others) Muddy Waters, Albert King, and John Lee Hooker. Granvil has worked hard over the past three decades and relentlessly keeps at the trade, gigging around the San Antonio / Austin area of Texas with his four-piece group and never losing contact with fans of the genre.” Granvil has been acknowledged with rave reviews for his album "Another Day Singing the Blues" from Big City Blues Magazine, Blues Blast Magazine, Rootstime , Underground Blues Network and more. Granvil has appeared at The San Antonio Fiesta Blues Festival .The Texas guitarist has played pre show parties for Buddy Guy, B. B. King. And ZZ Top. He is also two time finalist in The Eric Clapton Play Crossroads Contests (2010 & 2013) and is backed by one of the best bands in Texas. Don’t miss your chance to hear the real deal!
