Grace Kelly


Grace Kelly is a truly unique artist. You have heard the name before from the movies, but perhaps you haven’t heard of this
21-year old Korean American singer/songwriter/saxophonist/composer. SweetSweetBabyCover

Grace wrote her first song when she was 7 years old, recorded her first out of 8 independently released CD's at 12, and orchestrated, arranged and performed an original composition with the Boston Pops Orchestra at 14. As a bandleader, she has performed over 600 concerts worldwide in such notable venues as the Hollywood Bowl, Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Hall; major jazz festivals such as Montreal, Newport, and Montreux; and clubs around the world such as Birdland ( New York), Porgy & Bess (Vienna), Ronnie Scott’s (London) and many more.

Grace has performed and/or recorded with Huey Lewis, Harry Connick Jr., Dave Brubeck, Gloria Estefan, David Sanborn, Questlove, Esperanza Spalding, Phil Woods, James Cotton, and Wynton Marsalis to name a few.

Grace has been featured on (Making of a Prodigy), Glamour Magazine’s Top Ten College Women 2011, and several appearances on NPR. Her awards include multiple ASCAP Composer and International Songwriting Competition Awards, Downbeat Magazine Awards, Boston Music Awards, FNX/Phoenix Best Music Poll. And the Downbeat Critics Poll called her one of the "Alto Saxophone Rising Stars” - the youngest ever to be named so.


“Grace Kelly writes great songs, sings beautifully, is a world class saxophonist, and is going to be a big, big star.” –
Huey Lewis

"Grace Kelly plays with intelligence, wit and feeling. She has a great amount of natural ability and the ability to adapt that is the hallmark of a first-class jazz musician." 
Wynton Marsalis
