Grim Fawkner is an itinerant minstrel, whose acoustic works range from upbeat folk/country, to soulful balladry, with elements of blues, pop & indie thrown in.
He is a self taught guitarist and vocalist, has been self-managed and performing for 4 years and has toured extensively across Australia & NZ. He has mentored under Melbourne music stalwarts such as Charles Jenkins (Icecream Hands), Rebecca Barnard, and Davy Lane (You Am I).
Grim Fawkner's music is fresh and unique enough to set it apart, yet with enough pop sensibility that it is accessible by all music appreciators. It is his high intensity and passion for performing live though that keeps him in the minds of all who see him play.
