Schuyler Grant, (born January 16, 1990) is an American songwriter and performer based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Schuyler was introduced to the creative world early in his youth by his father, multi-media artist William Hemmerdinger (www.williamhemmerdinger.com), accompanying him to exhibition openings and private collection appraisals in the Los Angeles area. Grant’s songwriting is greatly influenced by his years in New Orleans and Manhattan’s West Village.

Working with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah Mclaughlin), Schuyler released his first studio album, “Moving On” (available now at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com), in May of 2016. Called “gritty and soulful” by one reviewer, “Moving On” explores the softer side of Grant’s songwriting, drawing much inspiration from likes of Bob Dylan and Ray LaMontagne.
 
Grant’s second album is a departure from the folk-inspired songwriting of his first, replacing the gentle ballads of “Moving On” with a rough and tumble exploration of the harder, blues driven rock and roll the songwriter holds close to heart. “It is the music I have always wanted to play— growing up on Clapton, Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, I developed a love for fuzzed-out guitar riffs at an early age,” Grant laughs. Working with Bradley Conant on percussion and again with Evans on bass, the album is AVAILABLE NOW on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and more. 
 
Schuyler is a graduate of Tulane University in New Orleans, LA (class of ’12) where he spent four years absorbing the city and its culture. “A show at Preservation Hall is the best $12 you could ever spend,” he says of the French Quarter’s storied dixie-jazz joint. Upon graduating, Schuyler moved to Manhattan’s West Village, cutting his teeth as a songwriter in many of the same clubs where his idols (Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, Ray Charles, and Ritchie Havens) did the same.

When not gigging in some of Manhattan, Chicago, and Boston’s most illustrious clubs, Schuyler can be found somewhere on the waters of Nantucket Sound.
