Grace Marie Wallace is one of the finest singers I have worked with. I first heard about her from my colleagues who worked with her at the Interplay jazz camp, and when I learned I was going to be playing some gigs with her I assumed she would be a talented and promising amateur, given that she is an accomplished medical researcher and not primarily a musician. Boy was I surprised! Grace’s pitch is impeccable, her taste in songs eclectic, with an ear toward obscure gems, and her thirst for musical knowledge is insatiable, not to mention the incredible speed at which she attains it. Her sense of rhythm helps an ensemble groove harder. Her commitment to the meaning of the lyric and her appreciation for space and nuance make every performance a unique, profound experience. Grace is the real deal, and I can’t wait to hear what she does next.

"I run a jazz series called Arthur's House of Jazz and am always looking for good, new talent. Grace was referred to me by a regular in my series. I never heard her name before so I did my research and went ahead and booked her. Now, I'll never forget her name. What a great, young, fresh voice she is. Her tone is clear as a bell. She sings with a buoyancy and happiness that is easily transferred to her audience. I look forward to hearing her again and again. "

"Grace Marie Wallace performed on our stage at The Loft at Hermit Woods on September 15, 2022. She was accompanied by a group of highly accomplished musicians, a drummer, sax player, stand-up bass, and pianist. Grace's performance was one of the highlights of our venue this year. Her beautiful voice, accompanied by her band's amazing sounds, filled our room with joy and wowed our audience. In addition, she was a pleasure to work with, from sound check to loading out at the end of the performance. We look forward to having her back soon. "
