Grant Hindin Miller Interview at Ink of Light Baha’i Writers’ Festival 2019

This interview from the Ink of Light Baha’i Writers’ Festival 2019 features singer, songwriter, Grant Hindin Miller.

Ink of Light is an annual festival that explores and celebrates the work of Baha’i writers and creatives, who all come together to share ideas, learn from one another, and celebrate creative expression.

Grant is a New Zealander who, at night as a child in his Auckland brick house, learned to play the ukelele and would accompany his father at the piano. He bought his first guitar around the age of 16 and as soon as he had learned five chords, he immediately tried to ‘write’ a song. It wasn’t as easy as he thought but he persevered. In the spaces between family responsibilities, earning a living as a teacher and writer, (we won’t mention interminable Baha’i commitments), he still toys with making music. He has produced nine albums of original songs, and he is the published author of three books, the scriptwriter of three produced NZ feature films, and the composer/lyricist of one stage musical. Grant is married to Jenny and they have two children, Rebeccah and Isaac. They live in a warm house east of Christchurch on a hill overlooking Lyttelton Harbour, in the South Island.
