Saxophonist, singer and composer Grace Kelly has been a regular performer with The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s band, Jon Batiste & Stay Human, has released her 10th album as a bandleader (which was voted #2 Jazz Album of the Year in DownBeat Magazine’s Reader’s Poll), won the DownBeat critic’s poll as “Rising Star Alto Saxophone” and was named “Jazz Artist of the Year” at the Boston Music Awards…all in the past two years. Known to many for her collaborations with Phil Woods, she wrote her first song at seven, recorded her first album at twelve, first performed with the Boston Pops Orchestra at fourteen, and performed at President Obama’s inauguration at sixteen. With a zest for genre-bending and engaging stage dynamics, she plays with passion, with a buoyant tone and inspired notes.
