In performance, Grace lights up the stage with a vibrant and engaging presence that compels the audience to get up and dance. Her voice is a remarkably powerful instrument, and as a songwriter she has a rare and natural gift for rhythm and melody. Grace plays guitar and bass and sings in three languages; English, Kreol and French.Grace’s band has been awarded “Best World Act” an incredible five years running in her current home state of Western Australia.
