Graham Mizen

A former singer with the touring Americana/Folk band ‘The Jigantics’, Graham Mizen was lead vocalist on numerous songs on the CD ‘Are We There Yet?’. On this album, he features on lead and all backing vocals on the Country song ‘Hammer Going Down’.

Graham is a singer and rhythm guitarist. Predominantly a solo singer, he is also a member of the ‘Webb Mizen Duo’ and band member with ‘Earl’, Gloucestershire’s ‘All You Can Eat’ Americana band.


One of a family of nine children, he learned his harmonising craft when frequently searching for a harmony part during sessions with his brothers.

Graham and a previous duo partner met Clem Curtis during the 90s when, out of the blue, Clem switched on his radio mic, jumped on stage and joined in during a residency gig at ‘The Olney Wine Bar’, Milton Keynes. It turned out that Clem was also an occasional performer there, the party venue being in his home town. For the next few years, Graham and his duo partner provided backing vocals for Clem for his ‘Clem Curtis and The Foundations’ acoustic sessions.

In recent years, Graham has been writing and recording. His first album, ‘Thinking of You’ was released in 2018. It’s been described as a ‘multi-genre’ album, biased toward country and folk. For the country tracks, check out ‘You Were Right (I Was Left), ‘Can I Have My Guitar Back?’, ‘Anybody Like You’, ‘Prettiest Girl’ and ‘I’m On A Train’.

Graham’s track, ‘Can I Have My Guitar Back?’ from that album was a winner at the latest GASC (Great American Song Contest) awards. It’s a traditional country song, based on a true story about when he let someone play during a gig break, only to find that the guy was a better singer/musician.

Graham’s latest album, ‘Play It’, is again multi-genre. ‘The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea’ is the stand-out country track. The video was shot at Devil’s Chapel, in the Forest Of Dean. (Well worth a visit if you can find it – the locals like to keep it a secret, but it’s a favourite spot for the film and TV industry).

Both of Graham’s recent albums were produced by T’Pau’s Ron Rogers at ‘Up The Lane Studio’ near Monmouth.

Graham was a winner at the Great American Song Contest 2023 and 2022. He received a Special Mention Award at the International Songwriting Awards 2023 and was a finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest 2022. 

All Graham’s songs are available to stream. Alternatively, you can buy an album from his website.

Graham recently moved to Lincoln and now gigs frequently as a solo singer of original songs and covers around the Lincoln area. He also travels to continue performing with his duo/band mates (and others) in Newark and around Gloucestershire.
