Feeder frontman plays live for BFBS show

Following the release of his first solo album, Grant Nicholas has played a live session in the BFBS studio.

This one-hour programme was broadcast on BFBS Radio over the weekend, and featured an interview between Simon Marlow and the lead singer / guitarist about what inspired him to take time out from the band and go it alone.

“He plays four acoustic tracks from his new album Yorktown Heights,” said Simon. “Compared to the style of rock music that characterises Feeder, it’s a more laid-back, mellow sound.”

From the thrill of supporting U2 and the 20-year success story of Feeder, to the tragic suicide of Jon Lee – the band’s former drummer – Grant talked openly about his musical career.

The sixty-minute session also includes some of his favourite tracks from Neil Young, The Beatles, Tom Petty and Simon & Garfunkel.

“It’s clear that this solo album was an opportunity for Grant to take a more personal approach to his music,” added Simon. “Even the illustrations for the album are by his daughter who was eight when she drew the first design.”
