Grace Kelly is no stranger to our show.  The truth is that she has been with us multiple times - and each visit reveals yet another exciting layer to this multi-talented artist!

Grace turns 22 SOON - and it's almost unbelievable what she has accomplished in her short but productive life.  A multiple instrumentalist with a focus on saxophone - singer - composer - arranger - producer and EDUCATOR!  Yes, all of that - with truly brilliant mentors who recognized early on that Grace was also blessed with brilliance.  Ann Hampton Calloway saw it - so did Lee Konitz and Monty Alexander, who said this: "She is not an artist for Jazz lovers only.  But one for the whole world."

Which brings us to the reason for THIS visit!  Hah!  Grace is so pumped...she had an opportunity to work with a most awe-inspiring producer - a friend of a friend, HUEY LEWIS - and Huey couldn't brag on Grace enough.  So, the groundwork was laid for a project - an EP - that would showcase yet another side of the versatile Ms. Kelly that we haven't seen.  Grace thought long and hard about how she wanted to do this - and decided that a Kickstarter would serve her best. So that fans and friends could take part in the success story :)  And we're going to tell you how YOU can get involved!  

This award-winning breath of fresh air has been "doing" this a long time - piano at six, involved in theater and dancing and singing - clarinet in fourth grade and saxophone thereafter.  It's not as though Grace was discovered overnight!  She has been involved in the music business for quite a while and her playing/performing show that to an astounding level.  Many a hard-core perfectionist has melted from her chaming and VAST ability.  

Grace Kelly's musical journey is about to get more interesting...join us in The Chat Room on 5/13 and HEAR :-D
