“Grace Kelly has an electric charisma on-stage that instantly ignites the room. She is one of the most kind-hearted, easy-going people I’ve had the pleasure of working with.” — Jon Batiste, the bandleader for «The Late Show with Stephen Colbert»

Saxophonist, singer, composer, producer, and educator Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 25-year-old. Grace Kelly released her 10th CD as a leader. The latest album, Trying To Figure It Out, was voted #2 Jazz Album of The Year in the 2016 Downbeat Magazine Readers Poll.

In Dec 2015 Jon Batiste snagged Grace as a regular on «The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s» band, Stay Human, playing multiple reeds and singing. In 2016, Grace was also thrilled to join a dynamic 10-piece house band for NBC’s new variety show “Maya & Marty,” starring Maya Rudolph and Martin Short and produced by Lorne Michaels.

As Grace Kelly defiantly reminds us on The Other One, a standout number from her 10th Album Trying To Figure It Out, which was voted #2 Jazz Album of The Year in 2016 Downbeat Magazine Readers Poll, she’s not looking to be like anyone else. “Got my own thing,” she sings over the song’s urban, trance-like groove. Although the singer and saxophone player has been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike as a jazz musician, the track’s exhilarating chorus, haunting keyboard hook and brittle electro edge show an artist interested only in playing what she loves labels be damned.
