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
