The Climb

Grady Shawver

Guitar based instrumental music with depth, passion, emotion, spirit.

This guitar-centric instrumental music features strong emotive melody with a fair share of dramatic moments and a variety of moods, from somewhat brooding and serious to upbeat, reflective and joyous, with some outright sizzling guitar-with-an-attitude pieces and a splash of colorful twang here and there. Also a bit of orchestration interspersed with more sentimental and tender shades. A perfect album for any kind of road trip or just to have on in the background in many settings...or just turn it up and get into it!

Grady Shawver is an Emmy-nominated Composer and is also a life-long guitarist, songwriter and producer with loads of life experience that is evident in every note he plays. He lives in Seattle. Washington.
