Official MusicFest Artist

MusicFest 2020 Debut

Grant Gilbert
Years at MusicFest:
Loud and Clear (2019), Single: Denying Desires (2019)

Grant Gilbert is a young, hustling singer-songwriter that embodies the spirit of the Lubbock musicians who’ve preceded him. Like Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Josh Abbott Band and Dixie Chicks, Gilbert is ostensibly country, but really so much more. Classic rock, the blues, Southern rock and – yes, country – are all ingrained in an energetic, powerful package that’s become a major part of the club circuit. That spirit is evident in Gilbert’s forthcoming EP, an intense musical workout that mirrors his college-town beginnings. You won’t want to miss his MusicFest Debut on its 35th anniversary.
