ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally from Calgary and now living in Toronto, Grant Tilly is a singer/songwriter, actor and writer. His songs are a blend of acoustic-driven folk/roots music that unites disarmingly honest lyrics with razor-sharp wit. Tilly’s tunes are like hot chocolate stories with Baileys—melting your heart and warming you up just enough to maybe do something stupid.

Some highlights of Tilly’s music and performance resume include having his darkly comic folk/pop song “My God’s Better Than Your God,” from his debut album Before My Eyes, aired on CBC Alberta’s In The Key of A. “My God’s Better Than Your God” has subsequently received national airplay on various CBC programs and campus radio.

As an actor, Tilly performed in the national premiere production of Jersey Boys, which included a televised New Years Eve performance as a lead singer to a live crowd of thousands at Nathan Phillips Square. He has also performed in regional theatre across Canada and toured throughout the United States.

“Grant Tilly is sweetly loopy as Doody, the guy who's clueless about anything more complicated than the four chords he's learned to pick on his guitar.”
The Toronto Star

As a writer, Tilly’s country/rock fringe show, The Christian Republican Fundraiser in Dayton Tennessee, for which he wrote music and lyrics, was awarded “Best of Fringe” in 2008 and was remounted in 2010 at Talk is Free Theatre.

"Inspired songwriting and a tight live band make this show a real humdinger."
CRITICS PICK: NNNN, Now Magazine

Some interesting facts…
• Yes, the bitter trilogy (from debut album Before My Eyes) was about a fairly bad break up. Tilly doesn’t really talk about that much but the songs speak for themselves.
• Half of the Tilly clan is from Newfoundland and he continues to find more relatives every time he works or visits there.
