Grace has had a diverse and eventful career leading up to 2016 having performed on prestigious stages and TV stations such as Glastonbury and BBC TV’s "Children in Need". Not to mention touring across Europe with Björk and working alongside Ricky Martin. This has led to her winning numerous awards; including ‘Best Singer’ in UK Unsigned (2009) and ‘Best Album, Best Female Singer and Best Song’ at the GSD Latin Music Awards (2011) as well as being a finalist for ‘Vocalist of the Year’ in the LUKAS Awards 2014.


“She is undoubtedly an artist who was born to perform. Her passion and love for music are unique. She can sing all kinds of styles and genres while in the middle she creates dancing tunes from pop, disco and funk melodies, giving the listener an intense and vivid picture of what music means to her: “Freedom”.” - Arts Publications Music & Films


Grace Rodson has nurtured her talent in many groups, most notably singing with ‘the Godfather of Salsa’ Roberto Pla, notable for his strong influence on the Afro­-Latin music scene. Completing a postgraduate degree in Vocal Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music, her abilities have even led her to conduct / compose with the London String Ensemble for a film.
She's also performed at the London Latin Jazz Festival with a sold out concert along with the fab funksters J-Sonics, City of London Festival, as well as having just been chosen to be the voice of Shakira’s new toy for toddlers, Kira Plush (Fisher Price). You can see Grace perform regularly every Friday and Saturday night at Sarastro in the heart of Covent Garden, and also monthly at venues of renown such as the OXO Tower, 100 WardourSt or the Primo Bar (London).

With the sensual dance-infused “Bitten” as the first single, Grace Rodson has just launched “Red Hot Fire”, her third studio album. The album was produced hand in hand by Grace Rodson and award-winning producers Andy Whitmore (Terence Trent D'Arby, Eternal, Danii Minogue, Usher), Oscar Lo Brutto (Wretch 32, JME, Skepta) and Niall Kearney. The album also features Roberto Pla on timbales, rappers Charlie Blaize Hall and Guerrero, guitarist Roger Blackman and Grace’s regulars such as Roberto Ares (percussion), Dominic Grant (guitar) or Alex Hutton (piano).

With "Red Hot Fire", Graciela (Grace) shows us her fiery side, all this coupled with a strong dance/electronic approach, in contrast to her previous work, of a more organic nature.

“Red Hot Fire” means a turning point in my personal life. It’s a mixture of fiery feelings and an unstoppable drive for becoming the best version of myself. It’s a process of confusion, desire and self-esteem. The music has a passionate drive and it’s intended to make people dance. - Grace Rodson

"Grace Rodson brings us a fiery dance masterpiece that has even made our pet dance at the office! An album that appeals to the mainstream audience, but experimental and daring enough to touch the critics' skin." - Pentavox
