Grant Livingston



Grant Livingston has been playing music since he was 10 years old. He started taking it seriously as a career when he moved to California in 2013, playing with a small band across the north of the state.

When he moved to Colorado in the summer of 2021, he was anxious to get himself involved in the music scene in the state. He started a new electric group to perform in gigs all across Colorado and has also continued playing solo gigs.

Livingston has written songs since middle and high school and primarily performs on the acoustic guitar, but you might occasionally see him performing with a mandolin or a banjo. His influences since moving to California include jam music, bluegrass, and jam grass, and he cites Bob Dylan, Robert Hunter, and Jerry Garcia as songwriting influences.

He considers his playing style very fluid, going from Flatpicking to rhythmic funk to classic folk songwriter chord progressions to a solo acoustic style. He is able to switch between all of these styles of playing depending on the context of the venue and show he is playing.

Being able to share the most authentic version of himself with an audience is one of his favorite parts about being able to perform live. He loves getting in the flow of the music, and that effect is enhanced with the advent of a crowd.

He hopes to bring his new electric band to the Caribou Room sometime later this year and is excited to be a part of the lineup for the Frozen Dead Guy Days festival in March. He wants his music to reach people in a way that allows them to get lost in whatever moment they find themselves in and prioritize the good things that life (and music) can bring.

You can watch Grant Livingston live at Knotted Root Brewery, 250 North Caribou Street in Nederland, on Friday, February 4, 2022, at 6 p.m. You can also catch him live at Howlin’ Wind Brewery, 51 A Main Street in Rollinsville, on Saturday, February 5, 2022, at 4 p.m.
