Kathleen Grace

”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.

“Pure-toned jazz vocalist …stepping into her own as an incisive tunesmith” — San Francisco Chronicle

Grace’s most recent CD, Mirror, was born out of a desire to fuse the musical language of jazz with the storytelling of the American folk tradition. Grace in her capacity as vocalist, songwriter and improvisor draws the listener in with vocal harmonies, grooves and textures inspired by her stories of love, power and loss. Each selection from the project has a modern day fable at its center and lessons learned and unlearned color their meaning.
