Primary Instrument: Vocalist
At once smart, alluring, evocative... -- Washington Post
Over the past three years songwriter and jazz vocalist Kathleen Grace has made a name for herself on the national scene as a lyrical vocalist with a desire to push boundaries. She has performed at festivals in the U.S., Europe and South America including the Montreux Jazz Festival and the SXSW Music Festival. A product of the fertile music scene in Los Angeles, Grace borrows from several genres in her writing and arranging, combining virtuosic jazz with the textures of indie folk/rock. The result is music played at the highest level and enhanced by eclectic instrumentation and vocal harmonies.
