Through combining his talents in singing, dancing, and acting, Grady Harrell II has had numerous opportunities to work with a variety of well known music artists, land acting roles on television, while at the same time recording and performing as a solo artist. His years of experience in the music business began at the age of 9 when he began to teach himself to sing while looking up to his role model Smokey Robinson. A native of Los Angeles, California, Grady Harrell was born into a musical family where singing was (and still is) a way of life. His mother, Evelyn Harrell, (a singer as well) was in the group Friends of Distinction while his grandmother, Essie King, was a "classical singer/teacher". Grady persisted in sharpening his vocal skills, and at twelve years old he formed a group called Young Gents. He also formed a very popular group called Papa’s Results while he was in high school. This group (which also included his sister Rocq-e) remained active for over a span of more than six years. They soon gained opportunities to work with artist such as Shalamar and The Whispers just to name a few.
Grady Harrell's stamina, talent, and love for music are strongly evident through his three solo albums: “Mwana” (1985) on Solar/MCA Records, “Come Play with Me” (1989) on RCA Records, and “Romance Me” (1990) on RCA Record. In recent years, he has done tours in Europe with his sister Rocq-E, as leading vocalist in a Motown/Atlantic theater production called "R.E.S.P.E.C.T." He usually makes appearances in Holland several months per year where the fans are
very welcoming and are more than appreciative of his soulful singing.
Currently Grady Harrell is in the process of recording a new album for Cliff Hanger Records where Chris Dixon, C.E.O. of the record label, is producing the album.

Marianne SolivanMarianne Solivan is quickly becoming one of the most buzzed about jazz singers on the New York scene, Marianne Solivan does not remember an “ah-ha” moment that brought her to the music she has devoted herself to: “I don’t recall having a big moment that made me like jazz. I just dug it.”
It is that same simplicity of statement with its intrinsic honesty that characterizes Solivan’s style. The infallible swing of Ella, the daring of Betty Carter, the matter-of factness of Carmen McRae…They can all be found in the voice of Marianne Solivan, whom trumpeter Jeremy Pelt has called “the modern-day paradigm to which all singers should aspire.”
It is no coincidence that the 2009 Jazzmobile Vocal Competition finalist has graced recital halls, jam sessions and club stages with such noted musicians as Roy Hargrove, Steve Lacy, Jeremy Pelt, Ray Gallon (Ron Carter, Art Farmer, Lionel Hampton, T.S. Monk), Ugonna Ukegwo (Tom Harrell, Jacky Terrason) and Jane Monheit’s sidemen Neal Minor and Michael Kanan.
