Eddy Grant (born Edmond Montague Grant, 5 March 1948 in Plaisance, British Guiana) is a British reggae musician.

When he was still a young boy, his parents relocated to London, UK, where he settled. He lived in Kentish Town and went to school at the Acland Burghley Secondary Modern at Tufnell Park.

He had his first number-one hit in 1968, when he was the lead guitarist and main songwriter of the group The Equals, with his song "Baby Come Back". The tune also later topped the UK Singles Chart again when it was covered by Pato Banton. Another Equals' hits included "Viva Bobby Joe". In 1971, Grant went home to Guyana following a collapsed lung and heart infection which put him out of action at the beginning of that year. He promptly left The Equals to pursue his solo career.
