"Sunblock" Won Best Oregon Documentary Award at Oregon Documentary Film Festival 

The 15-minute documentary film "Sunblock", featuring Grant's solar eclipse-themed song "Moment in Time", won an award at the Oregon Documentary Film Festival held at the Avalon Theater in Portland, Oregon (March 23-24, 2019).  If you want to hear the entire song "Moment in Time" (or watch a music video of the song), then click on the Music tab.

"Aisle 23" Music Video Added to the San Diego History Center Online Collection 

The music video of Grant's COVID-related song "Aisle 23" has been made part of the permanent online collection of the San Diego History Center.  As part of a crowd-sourced project called "History Happening Now - Share Your Story", this 3-minute video, shot on location at Ralph's grocery store in La Jolla, CA, illustrates the original inspiration for the song.  The music video can also be found on Grant's YouTube channel

"Sunblock" Short Film is Released 

Bill Bentley, my music producer and a budding filmmaker, has released his documentary film "Sunblock" about my family's experience in Madras, Oregon, one year ago (on August 21, 2017).  You can hear Grant's new song "Moment in Time" as the credits roll at the end of the 15 minute film.  The film can be accessed online at the following link: https://vimeo.com/284254079

New Pirate Theme Song Written 

In honor of "Talk Like a Pirate Day" (September 19, 2017), Grant has written the song "Shiver Me Timbers" based around a nautical theme.  This song should be sung by a certain female country pop artist (who has recently made a comeback with a new album of her original songs called "Now") because it was written for her.

Until we have the opportunity to produce a demo of the song, I will post the lyric sheet for all you pirate fans out there.  Yarr!

Recording Two New Songs at Bill Bentley Productions 

Grant was recently at his brother's recording studio, Bill Bentley Productions, singing final vocals on two new songs, Can't Crush My Soul and In a Flash.  The stories behind these two new songs can be found in the Music section on this website.
