Lady Grace, a.k.a. Emily Grace, began writing songs when she was 23, she first found her lyrical home in Spoken Word circles in Seattle. Admiring and coveting the skills of some of the cities best Spoken Word artists, and inspired by Piece she sought to create her own spoken word album.
She now plays with Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), and occasionally with Andre Ferriante (guitar), as well as Milo Walker-Hayden on violin. Her music combines the influences of classical, hip hop, and the blues folk tradition, as well as incorporating elements of Brazilian, and Latin music. “Songs are given,” she says, “so they come through the funnel you create.” She listens to everything from Tupac to Shakira, Sera Cahoone to Schostakovich, and does not find this to be in conflict. She listens to artists that inspire her, and hopes that her work inspires too. It is about being yourself, and seeing yourself in others too. It is about the unique and the interconnected. The balance.
