Event

EDDY GRANT
Since "Black Skin, Blue Eyed Boys" through "Living on the Frontline", Eddy Grant has been recognised as a vociferous promoter, through socio-political commentary, of the culture and achievements of contemporary black people.

His first band, The Equals, topped the chart with their classic "Baby Come Back," and with Eddy as songwriter, lead guitarist and producer, they went on to achieve three more major top 10 hits in the following 18 months.

The 1980's was enormously successful for Eddy Grant; in less than four years he enjoyed eight major international hit singles, including the US #1 - "Electric Avenue", "I Don't Wanna Dance" and "Romancing the Stone". The Clash featured a cover of "Police On My Back" for their Sandinista triple-set, and "Gimme Hope Jo'hanna", which gave Eddy Grant a hit in 1988, was a very thinly veiled attack on the Apartheid regime in South Africa.

As his solo career took off, Eddy Grant moved to Barbados and set up the Blue Wave studio. He continued to release tracks by classic calypso and soca artists on his label Ice Records, as well as 'Ringbang' a genre of Caribbean music he created. Continuing to produce his own material Eddy Grant is as active and relevant as ever.
