Priding themselves on their eclectic songs, groove based rhythms and jazz styled chord progressions, Grand Tradition are inspired by the likes of Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder but take their contemporary pop edge from Foster The People, Michael Jackson and Phoenix to name but a few.
A rough pre-band demo was released last year created by frontman Anthony and friends which unexpectedly received plays from BBC Introducing, Nation radio, Amazing radio and others.
A full 6 piece band was formed and this year they released their 1st 5 track e.p. produced and recorded by Nick Brine (Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness) every song went on to played by BBC introducing and they are looking forward to a year of gigging and playing festivals sharing the same line up as Elbow, Madness, Field Music and Franz Ferinand, while working their new 5 track EP.
Eclectic, groove driven, indie, jazzy pop music from Cardiff.
