Originally from Hong Kong, Grace Chung first began singing jazz more than ten years ago in Sydney Australia, where she grew up. Since then, she has led her own trios and performed with big bands in Sydney, Hong Kong, New York, Boston and Washington DC. After some years with her trio on the Sydney jazz scene, she started a residency at the Swing Jazz Club in Hong Kong, summer of 1997. This led to a series of shows at the Conrad Hotel, Hong Kong, winter 1997. Meanwhile, Grace started graduate school at MIT, and along with Tien-yi Lee, co-founded WhoSheBe, an all female jazz combo. WhoSheBe featured New England bassist Jane Wang and the now Tokyo sensation Akiko Iwase. During the years, WhoSheBe appeared frequently at venues in New England and New York including the Metronome, and the Living Room in NYC, Jazzmasters in Rhode Island, and Les Zygomates, Bob the Chef's, the Good Life, The Improv Asylum and the Elephant Walk in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1999, they recorded a live CD on Jazz with Eric in the Evening, New England's best-known jazz radio show. This was followed by a second CD, Bygones, released in 2001.
