G.R. Gritt is a Juno Award winning, Two-Spirit, Francophone, Anishinaabe/Métis artist. After living many years in Yellowknife and forming the band Quantum Tangle, they have recently moved back to Sudbury/Robinson Huron Treaty territory where they grew up. This homecoming coincides with a journey through transition to a body that they feel better represents their spirit. With these changes has come a new voice both physically and in the growing non-binary, queer, Indigenous magic of their songwriting. G.R. Gritt elegantly weaves the melodies in their live performances using vocals, guitar and new electronic elements. They create both intimate and anthemic music that would fit in a folk club, a dance club and anywhere in between.
The Northern cities G.R Gritt has lived in forced them every winter through snow and harsh temperature to make a choice between isolation and seeking community as a source of warmth. Their music serves as one of these beacons of connection for all who come near it. Welcoming yet truthful, they reclaim space through songs that show that intersectional identity is expansive and not to be divided into parts. By exploring the emotional and cultural core of their heritage they create a space so that others can enter either to find themselves or to learn how to make space for others.
