Brisbane born & raised but now based out of the beautiful Gold Coast Australia, Grant D. is a bass player, programmer & composer with over 17+ years music industry experience.

First getting his professional start back in 2001 playing bass for a renowned function band, Grant worked hard & soon got noticed & started working in the pop music scene playing bass for various artists on major & independent labels. Establishing him as a solid sideman, Grant then got the opportunity to work with Australian Idols artists & later X-Factor contestants as well as other well known pop artists.

The entire time Grant managed to keep to his musical roots & crafted his skills playing on the local RnB & Blues scene, playing in back street bars & all night jam sessions as well as making lifelong friends & knowledge you only learn by performing with seasoned musicians.

Now with a focus on music production & composition, Grant is establishing himself as a creative, hard working composer. Grant has picked up multiple publishing deals and contracts to produce music for bands, artists & also film and TV. Grant has also released two solo albums, showcasing his wide-ranging skills as a bass player and producer alike.

Having also taught for many years, Grant has a passion for teaching & sharing his experiences, passing on what he has learned to his students, inspiring them to grow as musicians & now through his writing, helping fellow artists in all creative fields carve out the career they desire.

Student Feedback

Tony H. (Student)

I have had music lessons with Grant off and on for the last couple of years. He is able to present technical music theory in an easy-to-understand way, and has so much to deliver students from his own studies and vast musical history and experiences. I can't speak highly enough of Grant as a Teacher, and equally as a very genuine, friendly, funny and engaging guy. Highly recommended, Tony Harris.
