10/12/16 Grant Geissman, Emmy Nominated Composer and Crossover Jazz Guitarist

Grant Geissman is a popular Contemporary Jazz recording artist, guitarist and Emmy-nominated TV composer. The talents and gifts of this artist are as diverse as The Many (many, many) guitars he owns and loves. 

As a studio guitarist he has recorded with such artists as Quincy Jones, Burt Bacharach, Elvis Costello, Brian Wilson, Van Dyke Parks, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, Paula Abdul, Ringo Starr, Keiko Matsui, David Benoit, Placido Domingo, Luis Miguel, Julio Iglesias and Chuck Mangione.

 He has also played on the scores for such TV shows as Two and a Half Men, Monk, Mad Men, Touched by an Angel and Dawson’s Creek.  His film credits include Because I Said So, Austin Powers/The Spy Who Shagged Me, The Majestic, and Anaconda.

Grant’s discography of 15 solo albums has just a few of his friends playing along with him as special guests, including Chick Corea, Chuck Mangione, Tom Scott, Mike Finnigan, and Patrice Rushen. He writes, arranges, plays, lives and breathes music, modest and humbly happy to be following his first… and only choice of profession for his entire career to date.
