The Gospel of Grant
By day, Grant Olney Passmore is a mild-mannered student in UT's mathematics, computer sciences and philosophy departments. By night, he's Grant Olney, a brooding, hip indie singer-songwriter with an album under his belt at a time when most kids are just realizing what the hell Demetri Martin is actually talking about. We're a little jealous, but happy to see the young dude from Houston doing well. He hits Walter's on Washington today, pushing his album Brokedown Gospel, a moody, smart tribute to Austin, a town he calls "Bright Heights City." With his low-register crooning, you'll forgive his similarities to Nick Drake. Hey, at least he's not influenced by Blue October.
