Grace Kelly

1992 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Saxophone

Genre: Jazz

New England-born Grace Kelly has been wowing audiences since her childhood. Releasing five albums on her own label before reaching the age of 17, the young composer, arranger and tenor saxophone virtuoso first learned classical piano as a child, composing her first song at 7. After a brief period studying the clarinet, she chose the saxophone, inspired after hearing her mother's Stan Getz records. She has impressed every musician she's encountered, including Wynton Marsalis and Harry Connick Jr., who both invited her to perform live with them. A natural improviser, Kelly also plays soprano saxophone, sometimes sings, and has been the recipient of countless accolades and awards. She released her first album, Dreaming, at the age of 12. Her fifth album, Mood Changes, was issued in 2009. Recorded with Phil Woods, Man With the Hat came out two years later.
