Kathleen Grace

No Place to Fall

October 22, 2013

Self Release

To hear Kathleen Grace’s singular, sophisticated take on country music is to hear an artist coming into her own. Her new, career-defining album, No Place to Fall, is set for release October 22.

No Place to Fall’s ten tracks were recorded at Los Angeles’ Carriage House Studios, produced by Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne). The track features performances from pedal steel wizard Greg Leisz (Eric Clapton, k.d. Lang, Amos Lee), jazz guitar virtuoso Anthony Wilson, acclaimed singer-songwriter Patrick Park, and local indie-folk singer Leslie Stevens.

The album marks Grace’s full emergence as a mature singer-songwriter, as well as a daring song stylist. Boldly, No Place to Fall presents Grace’s dynamic original songs alongside revelatory covers of artists as diverse as Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt, Duke Ellington and The Meat Puppets. It’s a testament to her realization of both strengths that all ten tracks sit so comfortably together on the record. In a move that captures the immediacy of the musical interplay, all songs were tracked live in the studio.

Born and raised in Tuscon, AZ, Kathleen Grace began to discover her voice after a move to the San Francisco Bay Area, studying jazz vocals with a local teacher. After a life-changing experience listening to Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” at the suggestion of legend Nancy Wilson, she plunged headfirst into live performance and songwriting, forgoing any previous career ambitions. With her combo, she has released three acclaimed independent releases, earning accolades from The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and JazzTimes. Over the last ten years, she has performed high-profile gigs around the world, including the Montreux Jazz Festival, an official SXSW showcase, and festivals in Europe, South America and Asia.

Kathleen Grace lives in Los Angeles with her husband, and serves as the head of the vocal jazz department at University of Southern California.
