John Grant is a songwriter with few equals. His luminous, comically self-aware, musically rich songwriting has made him that rare thing: a cult artist with an audience that cuts across all demographics. He’s an expert musical chronicler of the American Dream, angled mostly from its flipside,where your dreams go to die and everything turns to ash. Now he wants you to meet his Beautiful Creatures, people who he sees as the world’s premier citizens who share his love of authentic, intimate and FUNNY conversations. Producer: Rachel Hooper
