Grant Lawrence has long been a leading voice in Canadian arts and culture.
For years, the gregarious and encyclopedic Lawrence has hosted the CBC Radio 3 Podcast, a weekly showcase of Canadian independent music. Grant also hosts a live and interactive daily program on CBC Radio 3’s popular web radio station, also airing on Sirius 86. Grant can be heard throughout the week on various CBC Radio One programs (including DNTO of course!), and hosts many major music events, such as the Polaris Music Prize Gala, the Western Canadian Music Awards, and various festivals around North America. Prior to his work at CBC, Grant Lawrence was the lead singer of the internationally acclaimed Vancouver garage band The Smugglers. His first book, Adventures in Solitude, a memoir of his time spent in Desolation Sound BC, is a Canadian bestseller.
