Born October 24, 1956, Brooklyn New York, Grace is an American singer/songwriter. Her instruments are acoustic guitar and voice. Grace is a songwriter who appeals to adult contemporary, pop and country genres. She is the owner of The G Experience Recording & Publishing Studio.
Grace was born in Brooklyn, New York, to a New York City law enforcement officer, Detective Sergeant and Mother extraordinaire. She is the middle child of an older Sister and younger Brother. She is a citizen of the United States of America and her ancestry is of Sicilian decent. Her early childhood began in the urban city of Ridgewood, Queens, NY - predominately of Italian and German ethnicity. As a child, she lived to perform anywhere she had an audience. Grace played any instrument she could and was a member of her grade school Drum and Bugle Corps. She began writing songs on a restored guitar at the young age of ten.
In the early 80’s, Grace met pianist/composer Lisa Forte. They began a studio recording career and released their first demo out of Miracle Mile Recording Studio in Manhasset, New York. Shortly after, Grace formed her own homegrown studio - The G Experience Recording Studio. She is signed to Lisa Forte’s Inde Record Label, IvoryInnovations Music Productions. Their debut CD (EP), “The Right Time” is available on CD baby, iTunes and Amazon.
Grace's family is her priority. She is an animal activist donating to the Wild Life Society for endangered species and ASPCA Foudations. She is married. When asked in an interview who she writes her songs for, Grace commented: “I write about relationships in general, being in a loving one is my core resource.” Her musical influences are Billie Holiday and R&B greats; Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack, Gladys Knight. Grace doesn't collaborate with other songwriters. She prefers to write alone. “I feel when a song is coming, my mind shuts off to everything around me. I go into another place, listen to my heart and the song finds me. There’s no other way for me to write.” Grace works tirelessly in her home studio perfecting lyrics and melodies. "I haven't written my best song yet and I have written hit records. Songwriting isn't something you're taught. It just is, like Garland's voice. It's something I do because I can. A gift I am profoundly grateful to have received from my Creator".
