Lee Grant AKA Grantly born to Jamaican parents who loved nothing better than to celebrate life as often as possible, and most of the time this came in the form of a ‘bottle part’ which was all the rage back in the day. Lee & his senior brother Jimmy were given the task of keeping everyone dancing, (my first DJ gig). My dad was an avid music collector and would often come home from work on a Friday evening with a handful of the latest new releases from a wide range of genres.
As far back as I can remember I have always had a love for music and began collecting just like my dad as soon as I started earning money. I would often overspend on buying records and would end up borrowing money from the bank of mum & dad before the week was up. Back in the day going to clubs and running sound systems kept me and my sound crew [Lord Jarotone Sound] out of trouble. My weekends were often spent building speaker boxes made from borrowed sheets of plywood from the local timberyard. It was always about the love of music and who had the baddest, heaviest or loudest sound system in the dance hall.
Over the years I have teamed up with various sounds systems which are credited as my university of music school. My love of radio began with the evening program of the late great John Peel who’s varied collection of music captured his attention and kept him listening out for that obscure dub or reggae track, but it was the presenting style and music knowledge of David Ram-Jam Rogan [Capital radio] show that sealed my fate and career in radio.
Now gospel music influencer, founder of G Force TV & G Force Radio Network, TV & radio presenter & DJ, Lee Grant (aka Grantly) has been a Christian since the later ’90s and fell in love with gospel music with the help of groups like; Commission, Virtue, Greg O’Quin, The Winans and Kirk Franklin.
I am a member of Gospel Announcers Guild (GAG) and Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA) and as a presenter, I’m known for my style of quality cutting edge music with a vast amount of ‘A’ list interviews conducted over the years with artists from the USA, the UK, Africa and the Caribbean.
I started from humble beginnings as a volunteer at ‘Radio Guys Hospital’, where he learned various aspects of radio. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with mainstream companies; Solar Radio, FLR 97.3 FM, Fusion radio and Christian companies; Revelation TV & Premier radio. I also managed [VOT radio], ‘Voice of Truth radio’ on the Sky platform in the noughties.
Currently, you can catch me presenting ‘The Gospel Sunrise’ on the first Sunday morning of each month from 6 till 8 am on Solar radio.
