Grace Kelly

Today’s guest deejay is saxophonist and singer/songwriter Grace Kelly.

I was introduced to Grace through Kyle Eagle, the host of The Major Scale, when Grace was the guest on his show. Her music was great, and her zest for life was infectious. I admired her ability to have many irons in the fire while promoting her brand on social media and having a blast doing it. Grace’s grit and sense of fun were an inspiration when we brainstormed what kind of show Genius and Soul would be.

Grace’s bona fides are as long as my arm, so only I’ll mention a few to capture the scope of Grace’s talent.

Grace performed at Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Grace was also part of the house band for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and appeared and performed on Bosch Amazon’s original series.

Grace’s mix feature songs that shaped her as a musician. You’ll hear some classics, but you’ll also hear some unexpected songs that will keep you on your toes.

Join us next week when our guest deejay will be saxophonist, composer, and activist Roxy Coss.
