Grace Knight in Concert (Melbourne)
Saturday 08 September 7.00pm
Grace Knight is one of the most enduring talents in Australian music. With ARIA awards and nominations and chart topping recordings in each of the past three decades, her career spans over 40 years. Acclaimed for her live performances, Grace is one of the finest interpreters of popular music in Australia today. Knight’s spellbinding performances touch the soul and lift the heart. Her magical presence connects with audiences of all ages like few others can. She blew audiences away throughout the eighties as lead singer of internationally successful band Eurogliders. She captivated fans with her “Manic Ballerina” stage persona and Eurogliders took the charts by storm. As a solo artist she transformed herself from Pop Princess to Queen of Cool, and a string of successful solo albums followed. During her jazz career, Grace has done countless live shows including performances for five Australian Prime Ministers, President Clinton of the United States, Princess Diana, and the Thai Royal Family. 2016 saw the release of Grace Knight’s 8th solo album, “Fragile”. The songs on Fragile are a departure from the jazz Knight is famous for and have touches of blues, soul and folk, and demonstrate her ability to effortlessly move across genres whilst maintaining her signature vocal style. Grace Knight will return to Ellington Jazz Club in 2018, and is once again thrilled to present her iconic jazz hits and her unique solo spins on Eurogliders classics for the Ellington’s audience.
