Dreams of the coast
Grant began recording his latest album “Dreams of the Coast” in early 2020. This album blends the surf psychedelic sounds of his former band Ocean Forest, the American country twang of “Between Tides”, and is smoothed off with a mellow soft rock vibe. It features heavy banjos, fiddle, and pedal steel, fuzzed out guitars, and reverb soaked 3 part harmonies. Notable appearances on the album include North Myrtle Beach native Sadler Vaden, (Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit), who plays lead guitar, along side Gene Elders (George Strait, Lyle Lovett) on the fiddle. “Dreams of the Coast” is more of a collaboration than his previous works, with frequent guest appearances and varying influences.

Early Years Grand Strand native Grant Nesmith is no stranger to the tidal-like ebb and flow of the local music scene. Grant had early influences like the Beatles, which inspired him to learn to play the guitar at a young age. This led to the formulation of a tribute...
Divide and Conquer
Although shoegaze and country are very different genres it seems like he was able to bring these genres together through his songwriting and reverb. I was impressed he was able to pull this off.
Nesmith’s high-pitched voice complements the mood in “Gone So Fast” with its message of life’s fleeting moments.

Come Here Floyd
The friendly vocals of Grant’s delivery, casts delights of light and the gray, with tints of manic anxiousness to the cause.
The impressively multi-talented Nesmith is a hard man to pin down here, mixing and matching elements of indie-folk, alt-country, psychedelia, Americana, orch-pop and more into his own updated strain of Cosmic American Music.
