"Powerful contemporary electro/dance" - The Musician

“Airy, multilingual sophistication" - Jane Cornwell, The Evening Standard
"Snazzy!" - Nick Grimshaw
"A sensational blast of passion, raw, tender and sublime" - Matthew Wright, The Arts Desk

                                                         *****
Grace has had a diverse and eventful career leading up to 2016 having performed on prestigious stages and TV stations such as Glastonbury and BBC TV’s "Children in Need". Not to mention touring across Europe with Björk and working alongside Ricky Martin. This has led to her winning numerous awards; including ‘Best Singer’ in UK Unsigned (2009) and ‘Best Album, Best Female Singer and Best Song’ at the GSD Latin Music Awards (2011) as well as being a finalist for ‘Vocalist of the Year’ in the LUKAS Awards 2014.


“She is undoubtedly an artist who was born to perform. Her passion and love for music are unique. She can sing all kinds of styles and genres while in the middle she creates dancing tunes from pop, disco and funk melodies, giving the listener an intense and vivid picture of what music means to her: “Freedom”.” - Adriana Rubio, Arts Publications Music & Films


Grace Rodson has nurtured her talent in many groups, most notably singing with ‘the Godfather of Salsa’ Roberto Pla, notable for his strong influence on the Afro­-Latin music scene. Completing a postgraduate degree in Vocal Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music, her abilities have even led her to conduct / compose with the London String Ensemble for a film.
She's also performed at the London Latin Jazz Festival with a sold out concert along with the fab funksters J-Sonics, City of London Festival, as well as having just been chosen to be the voice of Shakira’s new toy for toddlers, Kira Plush (Fisher Price). You can see Grace perform regularly every Friday and Saturday night at Sarastro in the heart of Covent Garden, and also monthly at venues of renown such as the OXO Tower, 100 WardourSt or the Primo Bar (London).
With the sensual dance-infused “Bitten” as the first single, Grace Rodson has just launched “Red Hot Fire”, her third studio album. The album was produced hand in hand by Grace Rodson and award-winning producers Andy Whitmore (Terence Trent D'Arby, Eternal, Danii Minogue, Usher), Oscar Lo Brutto (Wretch 32, JME, Skepta) and Niall Kearney. The album also features Roberto Pla on timbales, rappers Charlie Blaize Hall and Guerrero, guitarist Roger Blackman and Grace’s regulars such as Roberto Ares (percussion), Dominic Grant (guitar) or Alex Hutton (piano).
With "Red Hot Fire", Graciela (Grace) shows us her fiery side, all this coupled with a strong dance/electronic approach, in contrast to her previous work, of a more organic nature.

“Red Hot Fire” means a turning point in my personal life. It’s a mixture of fiery feelings and an unstoppable drive for becoming the best version of myself. It’s a process of confusion, desire and self-esteem. The music has a passionate drive and it’s intended to make people dance. - Grace Rodson

"Grace Rodson brings us a fiery dance masterpiece that has even made our pet dance at the office! An album that appeals to the mainstream audience, but experimental and daring enough to touch the critics' skin." Press article by Pentavox

News

  • Last night Latin jazzers J-Sonics confirmed their reputation as one of the most compelling proponents of the delicate art of fusion with a deeply grooving, deeply addictive performance of their propulsive repertoire. Their two Brazilian-flavoured sets were characterised by supple instrumental interplay, including from the singer Grace Rodson, a regular performer with the Roberto Pla Ensemble, whose taut, rippling vocalising rhythms and sumptuous tone were as crucial within the band’s instrumental textures as her solos, which smouldered, then burst into hot Latin fire.

     

    The second set was overwhelmingly and outstandingly Brazilian, and starred singer Grace Rodson (pictured right), who joined the band for just over half the numbers. Unlike some singers, who float around waiting to be given the solo stage, her voice is a complete instrument, and she vocalised with the band, showing beautiful rhythmic control, then when the time came exploded into song. Rodson’s solo on Jorge Ben’s “Mas Que Nada” was a sensational blast of passion, raw, tender and sublime by turns. Baden Powell’s “Bermibau”, which closed the first set, was a lilting delight, with Clement Regert’s guitar leading into a dance between trumpet and Matt Telfer’s muscular sax.

  • London, England – Like a simmering plate of succulent seafood paella, Spain native Grace Rodson is serving a mouth watering concoction of Latin flavors with her debut release “Samba in My Bones” from Global Media Group and JFM Records. Skillfully stirring the flavors of flamenco, Latin, funk, Celtic and yes, samba in her delectable pot seasoned with a pop music base, Rodson sizzles as an engaging new international artist with an enchanting look and sound.

    “Samba in her Bones” is a tantalizing dish of nine original recipes for dance, straight from Rodson’s heart. Performed with the intention to incite uninhibited movement, Rodson’s luscious vocals carry the listener into a realm of whirling, syncopated rhythms. While the title track sways with Brazilian heat and intensity, moving sonic beats through the air, “Way of Life” is an uptempo concoction that sprinkles in a dash of fervent hip hop flow from UK rapper T. Smith. Rodson sweetens the offering with “It Will Rain,” a seductive and sensual serenade that pulses, sways and swings with compassion.”Everything,” another entree on the menu, is a beautiful ballad that renders strength and hope.

    GraceRodson2A native of Galicia, Spain, currently living in London, Grace Rodson is a product of the music she was surrounded by as a child. “Galicia is a land of migrants. I grew up listening to salsa, cumbia, merengue and bachata.” Expresses Grace, “My great-grandparents lived in Cuba and Texas, my aunties in Venezuela and Brazil, my grandparents, mother and uncle in Argentina. So I am a wonderful smorgasbord of Latin sound, dance and rhythm. ‘Samba in My Bones’ is a celebration of the diversity in the varied cultures around me with movement being the common denominator. Music and dance are the essence of my expression. For me this project is a journey of my love stories and music is my ultimate love!”

    Grace Rodson was the winner of the GSD Latin Music Awards 2011 in the categories of Best Album, Best Female Singer and Best Song. She tours and performs throughout Europe and is a singer and bandleader for Yes!!! Brazil Show, a Latin-Brazilian group. She is also the bandleader for “The Godfather of Salsa in the United King, Roberto Pla and his
    Latin Ensemble, who are known as the best salsa band in Europe.

    Grace Rodson may have ‘samba in her bones’ but after grooving to her debut project, music lovers will have Grace Rodson in their hearts. The project is available on iTunes at

  • Grace Rodson has teamed up with J-Sonics to deliver an unforgettable concert at the London Latin Jazz Fest, organised by Latin jazz muso Alex Wilson. 

    http://www.jazzfm.com/tickets/london-latin-jazz-festival-2015/

    Wed-30-Sep (7:00pm) - £18.00
    London Latin Jazz Fest 2015 – J-Sonics
    Show Time 8:30pm / Doors Open 7pm

    Venue: London Jazz Club Soho (Pizza Express)

    One of London’s hottest groove-jazz band J-Sonics perform their favourite Latin-Funk, Brazilian and Jazz classics with special guest singer Grace Rodson. Mixing up their super-charged originals – including their new single 'Samba House' – alongside classics by Tania Maria, Flora Purim and Ed Motta this will be the perfect mix of funky grooves and timeless melodies, all with a distinctly Latin flavour. Led by bassist and composer Mike Flynn J-Sonics features some of London's finest musicians – all solo artists in their own right – but all collaborating within J-Sonics' dynamite mix of burning originals and re-tooled Latin, Brazilian and funk classics.

    The line-up features a powerful twin-horn attack of saxophonist Matt Telfer and trumpeter Mark Perry, alongside the explosive rhythm section of guitarist/composer Clement Regert, bassist Mike Flynn, drummer Gabor Dornyei and powerful percussionist Jon Newey. Wowing audiences with their full-throttle grooves, searing solos and infectious interaction, J-Sonics rip it up on hip hop, funk, swing and Latin-jazz grooves, while the trumpet, sax and guitar frontline are pushed to exciting musical highs. This is a band that thrives on heat of the moment improvisation, killer tunes and boundless energy.

    Line up:
    Grace Rodson - Vocals
    Mark Perry - Trumpet
    Matt Telfer - Saxophone
    Clement Regert - Guitar
    Mike Flynn - Bass guitar
    Gabor Dornyei - Drums
    Jon Newey - Percussion

    "An unbeatable live gig" **** (4 stars) The Arts Desk

    “The anatomy of the groove is still very much intact with J-Sonics. Their brand of rocket fuelled groove jazz has the after burners full on. Respect to the groove merchants, here to take back jazz from the shoe gazers.” Chris Phillips Jazz FM

    'SAMBA HOUSE' VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VjcQhFc5kg

  • "Bitten" is a powerful dance track, very very sexy. Proof is the video with which a night party is shown at a club, where everything is heating up more and more until all the people end up wrapped in a wave of lust, completely wet. With Grace Rodson as the main character and a varied environment, this video shows us the most sexy side of the singer from Spain.

     

    http://pentavox.net/2015/09/25/nuevo-videoclip-de-grace-rodson-dance-y-sensualidad-en-bitten/

  • “Graciela can do any type of music, in fact one of her more prominent facets is the ability of adapting to any style. Her previous album takes you directly to the dance floor. 'Samba in my bones' is fresh, stimulant and lots of fun. A sophisticated album that mixes several styles such as Bossa Nova, samba and dance, making of it a dance and an elegant set at the same time. It reminds me a bit of the golden era of St. Germain, or even Dimitri from Paris or any of the big ones in jazz-fussion. Although sometimes she takes a walk through commercial dance, like Jennifer Lopez or Christina Aguilera; no problem in vocal comparisons.”

    - by Marco Fernandez, PentaVox

  • Under the script and direction of Mu Producions, recorded at LGBT club "Claro Boba!" of La Coruña (Spain), Graciela takes us through a journey of lust and sexy darkness with her latest single "Bitten". The video features drag queens Liana Mirage, Rastia Bideth and Laika Montenegro, and it's due to be released this September. 

  • Talk to us about "Bitten" and "Red Hot Fire".

    "Red Hot Fire" is my next album, it's more electronic, more dance and less Latin. It reflects a stage in my life when I'm feeling more fire and I wanted to show that in the album. All the songs in the album were written in a week, in two months I did all the arrangements and now I am in the final process of mastering. The single, "Bitten", comes out on the 1st of August, and the album will come out one or two months after, date still to be decided.

     

    What's next in the artistic career of Grace Rodson?

    Next is the album "Red Hot Fire", and further to that, I am always doing parallel projects to my own music. In August I'm going to Spain and I'm going to give a classical music concert with a pianist who's coming from the USA, I'm collaborating in a covers' album of Jorge Spiteri, I also work with a jazz-funk band called J-Sonics, the album is coming out in September and we have some concerts lined-up already. I am also performing at Sarastro in Covent Garden, every Friday, with my Latin Trio.

  • The new single "Bitten" is the opening card of a brand new album in English, "Red Hot Fire", in which Graciela (or Grace) shows us her most fiery side, this is coupled with a strong electronic/dance approach in her music, in contrast to her previous work, of a more organic nature. "Bitten" is a song about lust. That primitive instinct can sometimes save you from disaster, in my case it came as a warning, and it came at the right time. Obviously this is an autobiographic song, pretty much the same as the whole album. Who hasn't experienced lust? we are human, we are alive, and in order to learn we must rise and fall and rise again.

    To give that fiery touch to this edgy upbeat, dance song, Grace has invited English guitarist Roger Blackman on electric guitar. Be ready to be bitten by the poison of lust.

     

    "Bitten" can be acquired online now on iTunes

  • “Samba en mis huesos” es el título del último tema promocional y del álbum de la cantante española radicada en Londres, Grace Rodson, quien también lanzó esta semana el video del sencillo que ya se comienza a escuchar en distintas emisoras de Europa y América Latina.

    La cantante con raíces gallegas asegura que no tiene límites en cuanto a géneros musicales a la hora de componer, pues ha tenido influencia de la música latinoamericana desde que era niña por la conexión de su familia con países como Venezuela, Argentina y Cuba. La orquesta de Roberto Pla, de la que forma parte como vocalista, le ha servido también para enamorarse de la música latina, del jazz y de la música brasilera y su emblemática samba, influencia definitiva en su última producción musical.

    En el inventario de los géneros que interpreta, y que le han servido de inspiración, la cantante y compositora incluye la ópera, el jazz latino, el pop, la cumbia y por supuesto la samba.

    “¨Samba en mis huesos¨ es lo que siento porque me gusta hacer bailar a la gente”, dijo en una entrevista realizada por ACULCO radio.

    En cuanto a su estilo Rodson explicó que “se deja llevar” sin analizar demasiado su proceso de creación: “Al componer dejo fluir el mensaje lírico y me dejo llevar. No me limito en cuanto al tipo de género. Siempre dejo que mi intuición y mi corazón me lleven porque no quiero poner límites. Siempre que pueda cantar cualquier género voy a intentarlo”.

    Entre los planes inmediatos de Rodson está dar conocer el disco en el Reino Unido y giras para Asia, oriente medio y América.

    La cantante destaca entre sus mayores influencias a Gloria Stefan: “Desde que tengo como 11 años soy fan de Gloria Stefan. Fue una gran inspiración porque fue pionera en mezclar la música latina y el pop. Los temas “Conga” y “Oye” son temas que abrieron el camino para eso”.

    Una de sus mayores satisfacciones fue participar en el festival de Glastonsbury en el Reino Unido: “Fui como vocalista de Roberto Pla, nos fue muy bien. Hubo una suerte de comunión en el escenario”.

    Rodson se considera una apasionada de la música y por eso desde que tuvo oportunidad se ha dedicado a estudiarla, como relata en su página www.gracerodson.com : “Debido a mi amor incondicional por la música, estudié todos sus aspectos, siempre me entusiasmó. Estudié guitarra, lenguaje musical, técnica vocal, y después me licencié en Ciencias de la Educación Musical en la Universidad de Vigo, además de continuar con mis estudios de canto clásico y piano. También estudié un postgrado en el jazz vocal en la Royal Academy of Music de Londres. Yo cantaba en coros, bandas, orquestas, todo tipo de estilos y tipos de conjuntos. Yo también era profesora de música en varias escuelas. Empecé a escribir canciones a la edad de 13 años, y desde entonces he estado escribiendo, arreglando y produciendo para mí mismo y de vez en cuando para los demás”.

    Veamos que nos dice sobre eso su nueva producción musical en esta entrevista realizada por Gloria Gómez Canal y Jean Paul Ricot.

    Your new video for 'Samba In My Bones' is to be premiered online at Female First - how was the experience of creating that film?

    Well, first of all it's all been possible thanks to Sarastro, the most flamboyant restaurant you will come across with in Covent Garden. I perform there with my Latin Trio every Friday, we recorded the video there, and they sponsored the whole thing, they have become part of my family. I had this idea of recreating a masquerade party, as I thought it suited the venue perfectly, and Anda Teglas, the director, captured our ideas straight away. Then we rehearsed the choreography, we prepared the extras, the male model, costumes, etc, and voila! Everyone had a good time. This is a chilled samba-pop to make people feel happy as they dance.

    It's the title track and lead single from your new album - tell us about the creative process behind that record.

    The single, 'Samba In My Bones' was co-written by myself and my singer friend Samantha Williams, with whom I shared stage while being part of the pop-opera group Milan. After we left the band we started a little duo together and we co-wrote a few tunes. When I released my first album I told her I wanted this tune to go in my album, and so it happened! I arranged it, and then producers Natema gave it the magic touch. The other songs in the album are all written and arranged by myself, and I have amazing musicians playing on it, for example Xantone Blacq (Amy Winehouse), Dominic Grant (Courtney Pine) or Steve Richardson (Shirley Bassey, Spice Girls...). If you ask me about the creative process behind every song it's gonna fill many pages of your mag, you don't want to go there now! (laughs)

  • Grace Rodson has been nominated for the second consecutive year to the LUKAS AWARDS 2015.

    The Latin-UK Awards, better known as The LUKAS, is the UK's fastest growing awards ceremony and its biggest Latin-themed celebration, recognizing our contribution to Music, Dance, Sport, Arts, Business and Society. Created by the UK’s leading Latino publication, Latino Life (www.latinolife.co.uk), The LUKAS is a fantastic, colourful, and entertaining celebration of Britain’s rapid growing passion for all things Latino.

    The LUKAS Gala Ceremony is the most prestigious event of the year for the UK’s rapidly growing community of Latin culture fans.

    How Voting works:

    For the majority of the awards, there are two rounds of public voting: The primary round is open to all those eligible (see nominating a candidate for criteria) and runs for one month. The public can vote once only for each award during this period. A shortlist made of the top five most voted for nominees for each award then enter a final round of voting, with their votes carried through. The second and final round also lasts one month, in which the public can vote again.

    Votes will be frozen at the end of the first round and carried through.

    The public can vote a total of twice for every nominee: once in the primary round and once again in the final round.

    In each of the two votes, we reserve the right to accept up to four submissions per IP address (to account for households) to avoid fake or multiple accounts.

    The winners and runners up will be decided at the end of final round, with the public vote counting for 50% and the remaining 50% by votes from a panel of experts selected for each award. The two percentages will be added up to decide the winner.
