Cecil Gant

Cecil Gant was first played on NTS on 2 June 2017. Songs played include I Wonder.

Cecil Gant (April 4, 1913 - February 4, 1951) was an American blues singer and pianist.

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Gant worked local clubs through the mid 1930s up until the Second World War, when he enlisted in the United States Army. Though his piano was blues-based, vocally he was a crooner of considerable cross-over appeal. He sang at a War Bond rally in Los Angeles, California, signed with the Gilt Edge record label, and recorded the self-penned ballad "I Wonder" late in 1944, billed as "Pvt. Cecil Gant." "I Wonder"…
