Murray Kinsley and Wicked Grin have been rockin’ festivals and clubs throughout Canada and the United States with their distinctive hard-driving, in-your-face performances: full-tilt blues with a groove that just won’t quit.

The band won the 2014 Maple Blues Award for Best New Group and their two latest CDs – “Shame One Me” and “Stormy Water” – were each named Blues Rock Disc of the Year by the Blues Underground Network. In 2015, bassist Leigh-Anne Stanton received the Maple Blues Award for Bassist of the Year.

“Murray Kinsley and his band Wicked Grin have been steadily building up a fan base worldwide with a brand of musicianship that stays clear of the hang-dog clichés that often take blues music and its noble power and renders it toothless” – Rod Nicholson, Scene Magazine

“Dark, bluesy ruminations on love and loss featuring the weathered vocals and nasty guitar of Kinsley, who must have sold his soul to achieve such depths of sonic wickedness.” – Lynn Saxberg, Ottawa Citizen
