GRACE SOLERO Short Info

Raw and eclectic London quartet GRACE SOLERO recently released their second album 'Hundred Years Apart' through Wohone Records. Their single Electro has been played by Ian Camfield on the Radio X Rock Show and the album songs are currently receiving airplay all around the world. Hundred Years Apart has been critically acclaimed and championed by Sonic Cathedral USA Webzine (9/10) and Powerplay UK Magazine (8/10) to name but a few.

Singer and guitarist Grace herself possesses a visceral voice of astounding range, and a presence and poise as a performer that points to past dance, acting and gymnastics training. In the group she lends her name to, her star quality is matched by that of California-born, London-based lead guitarist Dan Beaulaurier, whose style displays a rare mix of technical mastery and real soul.

Their debut album 'New Moon' has been critically acclaimed and championed by magazines including Classic Rock, Guitar Techniques and The Fly. It's a glorious sonic collision of musical influences and includes the single 'Apartheid', playlisted by Bruce Dickinson on BBC Radio 6.

On the follow-up 'Hundred Years Apart' Grace Solero's core creative duo are joined by drummer Maurizio Liberato and multi-talented bassist Bjorn Zetterlund, who recorded and engineered the record at the band's self-built North London studio. By turns both grand and understated, the second album knows when to apply full-force, bracing blasts of gritty noise, and equally how to hold listeners rapt with the subtleties of a single, sustained note or well-placed seconds silence. At their most sonically abrasive Grace Solero channel the emotional intensity of grunge icons such as Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins, at their most audacious and extravagant they bring to mind Muse's stadium bombast, and, on a sublime, stripped-down cover of 'Yard of Blonde Girls', Grace delivers a performance which makes plain why frequent Jeff Buckley comparisons have been fully deserved.

The band possess a captivating stage presence, which has been honed through extensive touring, everywhere from intimate clubs to large stages at outdoor festivals in both Europe and the USA. It's a true one-of-a-kind artist who can say she's performed alongside The Vibrators' Knox (who in turn said Grace possesses “a world class voice”), Slade's Noddy Holder (with whom she co-starred in a musical production of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' at London's Union Chapel) and Tristania's Mariangela Demurtas - who appears on new single 'Electro' and describes Grace as “one of the most talented people I know”.

"Great guitar driven rock with an equally great female voice" - Noddy Holder (Slade)
"Bittersweet, Jeff Buckley-esque" - Time Out London
