Episode 304 - Grace McLeanJanuary 05, 2015 Joel B. New
Called “electrifying” by The Huffington Post and “spectacular” by the New York Times, Grace McLean (gracemclean.com) is a multi-hyphenate actress-composer-singer-writer-teacher on the rise. In addition to performing in Off-Broadway hits like NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 and BEDBUGS!!!, Grace also makes time for her acclaimed original music, both as a solo artist and with her band, Grace McLean & Them Apples. Manhattan User's Guide writes, "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart." In 2015, she will be performing in the world premiere of the Michael Mayer-helmed musical BROOKLYNITE at The Vineyard Theater, and her band will open the Lincoln Center American Songbook series with a free concert on January 21st, 2015. Song Presentation: "My Breadline Christmas Song" from Joel B. New's MACKENZIE & THE MISSING BOY (joelbnew.com). Accompanied by Daniel Kim on guitar. Recorded live at Michiko Studios in New York on 12/15/14.
