Originals, contemporary jazz classics and arrangements

Award winning guitarist and composer Nick Granville is a maverick in the jazz world. He defies any easy pigeonhole. By turns, he picks a guitar to accompany a ballad, swings a jazz tune, and then reaches deep for a soulful expression of funk and contemporary music. A mainstay of the Wellington jazz and contemporary music scene for the past 20 years, Nick has 40+ records to his credit as a sideman, recorded many film scores, T.V themes and five CD's as a band leader including the successful records 'Wishful thinking’, ‘Refractions’ and 'Home' (Nick Granville Group), 'Round the Bend' (Triptych Trio) and 'With a Twist’ (Otis).

Nick has performed in concert with pop stars Ronan Keeting, Delta Goodrem and Chris DeBurgh; jazz stars Mike Stern, Steve Smith, Alan Broadbent and Kurt Elling and classical music stars Kiri TeKanawa, Paul Potts and the NZ Symphony Orchestra to name but a few. He can be heard and seen regularly on T.V programs including Dancing with the Stars, One Night Only, Karaoke High, The Breakfast Show theme, One News and more. He plays regularly with Rodger Fox's Wellington Jazz Orchestra, The Nick Granville Trio, Granville-Ellis-Illingworth, Hot Cafe and as a busy freelance musician. He has performed extensively across NZ as well as USA, Australia and in parts of Asia.
