January Grit met in New York City in the Autumn of 2017. Inspired by the city's rhythm and restlessness they began creating music together and gigging around the city. In January of 2018 the duo moved to Toronto, Canada. They toured the city, performed at multiple venues and were selected as winners of Toronto's Underground Sounds Competition with Universal Music Canada. In June, 2018 January Grit spent a month in Sydney, gigging across the city. Recently, their original song, "Sway," was featured in a Map of the Heart fragrance commercial directed by Jeff Darling. Inspired by artists such as Hozier, Jeff Buckley, Madeleine Peyroux, Nina Simone, and Etta James, January Grit brings forward a unique combination of jazz, indie, folk, and alternative. January Grit has since moved to Orange County, where they are performing live shows and finalizing their debut album, which will be available in January 2019! January Grit is available to book for weddings, private events, restaurants, coffee shop gigs, and more!
