On his studio recordings, Reykjavík-based singer-songwriter John Grant evokes Elton-John-by-way-of-Jarvis-Cocker with his heartfelt singing, wide-ranging keyboard sounds, and witty words about sex, addiction, and famous figures from Francis Bacon to Madeline Kahn (as if to drive the comparison home, he’s even covered John’s “Sweet Painted Lady”). Onstage, he’s also a raconteur, which comes across most keenly on 2014’s Live in Concert with the BBC Philharmonic, on which the tart-tongued singer behind uninhibited tracks like “GMF” (aka Greatest Motherfucker) confesses that he starts “to break in a rash if I don’t swear every 30 minutes or so.”
