Granny Says Band
The country-rock author project Granny Says, began in Brescia in the summer of 2005 with the collaboration of Henry Sauda, Arcangelo “Arki” Buelli and Simone Boffa. They have since been joined by bassist Giorgio Marcelli. A classic contemporary blues quartet formation (two guitars, bass and drums) they present a fully original repertoire of their own compositions mixed with classic blues covers, with sounds influenced by the blues but in constant search of new colours rock, pop ,jazz and contaminations set free from classic idioms.
The band boasts vast experience on big stages opening for internationally well-known artists such as: Scott Finch, Paolo Bonfanti and Jono Manson, John Popper (Blues Traveler), Robben Ford, Rudy Rotta Sugar Blue, Nine Below Zero, Eugene Hideaway Bridges, Tishamingo, John Mayall, Andy J.Forrest, John Campbell John, and Eric Sardinas.
Miles’ collaboration with Granny Says blends perfectly his soulful bluesy style (as the Seattle Times says, “Simmons has a voice that stretches from church to the bedroom in a leap” ) with the cool country rock that the critically acclaimed Granny Says artists are known for. Mixing original tunes and a few covers, both musical entities have united for what seems to be an unstoppable musical force throughout Europe.
