A.J. Fullerton

He has steadily built a reputation as one of the hottest rising talents on the Colorado music scene. A.J. is well known for his skillful guitar, and powerful vocals, often called "Beyond his years."

"Grant Sabin is unquestionably one of the hardest working musicians around, playing with abandon at large and small venues throughout Colorado and beyond. As a solo artist Grant has captivated audiences for years with his raw voice, intense stage presence, and one-man band approach to creating music with slide guitar, harmonica, and stomp box. As a band leader, Grant turns the volume up to 11. The Grant Sabin Band includes, Alex Koshak (Flumps, Sugar Sounds, Briffaut) on Drums, and Sam Erickson (We Are Not A Glum Lot, Briffaut) on 2nd Guitar. Grant Sabin's Musical delivery comes from the heart and has earned him the respect of fans and fellow musicians alike."

- Steve Harris (KRCC)

“Grant Sabin is a unique, talented Blues prodigy. He is steeped in
traditional Blues, well beyond his years.”

- Rick Lewis (103.5 The Fox, Denver)

"Sabin's musical delivery serves as strong reminders that playing
from the heart is clearly an innate process for some folks. He is one
of those rare souls who "just has it". His eclectic approach to the
blues/folk/rock spectrum is honest and convincing. Its great to see
such passion and talent in young musicians. He is quickly on the path
to becoming a musical force."

- Aaron Moreland (Guitar Player, Moreland and Arbuckle)

"Colorado Springs' slide guitar-playing bluesman Grant Sabin is truly a throwback. The multi-instrumentalist's baby face contradicts both his gruff voice and his repertoire, which includes not only his own modern work, but tributes to Son House and Jimi Hendrix, as well."
