Isla Grant is coming to the Thainstone Exchange in November 2019!
Isla Grant was born in Wigtownshire, Scotland but when she was a few months old her family moved away and eventually settled in the Scottish Borders. When she was about eight she used to pluck the strings on her oldest brothers guitar and eventually he gave her the guitar so I suppose you could say that he is responsible for Isla starting to play music although music was right through her family.
When she was about fourteen Isla started to sing in the folk clubs mainly in Scotland and in the north east of England, then she discovered country music and that changed her style in music. She worked professionally in the country music scene till 1992 when she was involved in a serious road accident along with her husband Al.
Due to injuries in the accident Isla was off the road for five years and in that time she started composing more of her own material which led to a recording contract. After eleven albums, some of which have gone triple platinum, Isla branched out and started her own record label (I.G.E.) and released her first album on her own label in October 2008.
Isla’s husband Al is an artist in his own right but is always on stage with Isla playing bass guitar and giving a few songs.
Isla loves to tour, that’s when she gets the chance to meet all her fans and tell them how much she appreciates all their support.
