Sons of Granville made three consecutive podiums in Georgia Straight's annual Best of Vancouver edition with a signature instrumental style featuring viola, guitar and cajon. Shades of classical romanticism and modern fusion blend with infectious world-beat rhythms. They’ve become one of the top acoustic bands in Canada with a style that caters to any audience.
SONS + ONE
The instrumental trio expands to a vocal quartet with Tiffany Rivera at the helm, performing classic covers and originals.
Sons of Granville formed in 2010 as a busking duo on the streets of Vancouver. Featuring energetic performances on viola and guitar, two virtuosos exchanged fire over rhythmic and harmonic forms that would invariably give way to a lot of improvisation and excitement.
In 2011 they released their self-titled debut and made their first of three consecutive “Best of Vancouver” appearances as voted by the readers of Georgia Straight. The band then added percussion as they continued building a reputation for crazy street shows.
Through 2012 and 2013 the band was a staple of Vancouver’s entertainment district as large crowds gathered to catch their unbridled theatrics and share videos with friends. They played at the 2013 & 2014 Vancouver Spring Show and the Squamish Music Festival.
Sons of Granville released the Imperative Drive LP in 2014 as a farewell to their busking roots.
