Chorus Grant – Vernacular Music

Chorus Grant is the moniker of danish singer/songwriter and guitarist Kristian Finne Kristensen. And he released his new album on TAMBOURHINOCEROS some days ago. His first one ‚Space‘ was loved very much by the critics.

Going more in a classic songwriting direction is ‚No Word for the Word‘: With its silent sounds and chorus parts and it matches the days when it’s raining outside and it gets darker earlier every day.

More Highlights are the wonderful ‚Give it a name‘, ‚Eudamonia‘, ‚Words Like Soon‘ with its gorgeous guitar parts and the quirky instrumental ‚Chamber One‘:

‚Vernacular Music‘ is not an album for the masses, not for the charts. But for music lovers who appreciate music from the heart.
