Slim Gritty is an Australian singer, songwriter and musician, who in variable line-ups is no stranger to gigs and festivals both home and abroad.
Slim draws heavily on the timeless energy of the roots Americana genre. In particular rockabilly and the roots-music styles of honky tonk, hillbilly, RnB and blues that merged to create its initial spark. Slim then adds his own unique musical touch and crafted lyrical stories with a present day relevance, sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always gritty.
Slim’s debut album ‘Movin On Down The Line’ was released late 2019 to much acclaim amongst his peers. Featuring the singles 'Another Man', ‘Gringo’ and ‘One More Chance’.
Slim’s latest project is a roots country/hillbilly EP entitled ‘Lil’ Bit Country’, scheduled for imminent release. He has augmented the pared back style of his previous album by adding fiddle, banjo, mandolin and vocal harmonies. The first single from the EP, the rich romantic roots country ballad 'One More Kiss' enjoyed worldwide airplay upon its release in late 2020 soon to be followed by what can only be described as Slim’s Hillbilly Requiem, ‘Heading Towards the Sun’.
