Hypnotically interweaving storytelling, laughter, exotic instruments and his distinctive voice, Granger’s unique sound and energy have been featured in film, at National Monuments, Sundance Film Festival, International Native American and World Flute Festival, Santa Fe Indian Market and The Gathering of Nations. He has collaborated with R. Carlos Nakai, Coyote Oldman, and Peter Phippen. His music can be heard on Music from the Hearts of Space, Sirius, other stations worldwide. NPR’s All Things Considered profiled Granger and his rare Hang in a feature called Like Water Over Bells, and New Mexico Magazine calls Granger’s music, “Richly layered with the sounds of a variety of flutes and percussion instruments…[offering] more depth than some flute solo recordings you might find.”

 

A Las Cruces resident, Granger has composed for multi-media art shows and the NMSU Dance Department. Awards include the Indian Summer Music Award, New Mexico Music Industry Awards and two Native American Music Awards nominations. A 2012 project, Strong Medicine: Love in Cancer, reflects his ongoing commitment to providing soothing music to hospice patients.
