Musician? Performance Artist? Producer? It’s hard to define “Joey Grace”. From walking onto the stage wearing angel wings or covering Peter Gabriel’s song “Big Time” with a cigar in her mouth, to programming the voice of Siri to narrate her shows, to playing a laser harp, Joey Grace has never been afraid to push boundaries and express herself.
Joey Grace is a unique live performer and music producer based in Long Beach, California. During her performances she plays a laser harp, keytar, synth, and drum pads while using a vocal effects machine to produce lush on-the-spot harmonies and ethereal loops. As one audience member put it after seeing a live show, "Joey Grace's on-stage performance sounds like a dark version of Enya meets Marilyn Manson." Music influences include Laurie Anderson, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, and Sophie.
Her debut 6-song EP Beautiful Storm has been coined by the artist as a style she calls "sexygloom". More recent releases of the songs I Can't Catch You, Lost At Sea, and Biorobot have been gaining worldwide attention as unique electronic tracks that you might hear in a video game or action film.
Joey Grace has a love for making music videos and a drive to bring her imaginings to life. She filmed and edited the Guns On Sunday music video all by herself using only an iPhone: climbing into abandoned zoo animal cages, being snuck into a Long Beach Port facility, and flitting around in one of the world’s most beautiful tree houses. In her Beautiful Storm music video she was body painted head to toe by world-renowned body painter Paul Roustan. She also loves supporting female graphic artists, and has commissioned the incredible Esra Roise and Ariel Ehlers to create her album covers.
Over the years Joey Grace has performed all over Los Angeles and at the Special Olympics World Games. She was honored to sing the National Anthem for the LA Sparks at Staples Center, and for the Red Wings at Frontier Field. Her song Biorobot was featured at galleries in Rome, Hong Kong and Australia. Not only does Joey Grace produce her own songs and music videos, she also occasionally collaborates with other musicians from around the world and has produced for other singers.
She invites you to follow along and enjoy the ride.
