Brant Grieshaber


A consummate band leader, soloist, and sideman, Brant Grieshaber performs all over New England, from the Maine Music Society to the Beantown Swing Orchestra, from The Beehive to Johnny D's. He's shared the stage with jazz giants such as Bill Frisell (Grammy nominee), James Carter, and Charlie Hunter and he often performs and records with faculty from Berklee College of Music. He also teaches guitar and composition at his studio in Boston, where students come from across the globe to explore the fingerboard.

Brant is an artist endorser for Godin Guitars and JazzKat Amplifiers.

At the age of 8, Brant began classical and ragtime piano, studying with Bates College professor Dr. Marion Anderson. At 13, Brant took up jazz and rock guitar. He earned his BA at Berklee College of Music, studying with Garrison Fewell and Bret Wilmott. At the Boston Conservatory, he did graduate studies in classical composition with Osvaldo Golijov. He has also studied guitar with the jazz/fusion giant, Frank Gambale.
